Trainz Survey - Help us find out what the community's favorite Train is!

We are interested to find out what our community's favorite Train is. Could it be the UP Big Boy, Little Joe or the Eurostar? So many to choose from so make sure you get your vote in to find out which Train dominates the "Favourite Train" poll!

On the Poll page we have listed only a few Trains that you might find as your favorite. You’re not limited to choosing one we have listed though. If your favorite Train isn’t in our list, be sure to add it in the “Other” section of the poll.

NOTE: The poll is at the bottom of this page!

Perhaps.

Anyway, had to go for "other" and wrote down the BR203 (although BR202 looks the same for me), the good German diesel workhorse.

OK, I'm trying to choose 'other' but it won't accept the choice, keeps saying "This question requires an answer." So I'm unable to complete questionnaire.

How about a new LNER A0 Flying Scotsmen? That would be nice to see. I can already see it taking passenger trains...

Cant select 'other @ as there is no button to click on. How ever choosing one of the others allows you to fill it in. Not really giving a fair poll as Im sure the one you click the button on will be the one chosen as your selection. For me it would be The Ruston and Hornsby 4Hwd or the Manning Wardle 0-4-0St.

Survey really wants you to select one predefined answer on top, in order for it to accept your input.

3 Days later, and still not fixed...kinda answers your questioning thoughts...they do NOT want to really know what you want.

If this is intended to be included with the T:ANE release, it's pretty sad, as all those choices are already available on the DLS or via DLC, in one form or another.

Anyway, since the poll won't accept it, I'd like to see an EMD SD38 locomotive, a non-dynamic braked Conrail SD38 to be specific.

While I would agree with the last part of your statement, N3V's job is, in my opinion, to make the game and provide support, not make locomotives. Crying and whining like a little brat isn't going to help you or anybody else.

What speculation? I just got power and internet back after being out for three days...I tried to vote in the poll and it would not accept my "write in" vote.

No speculation. N3V did not FIX the problem with the write-in votes on their poll. that tells me that they do not really want you to write in an "other" vote...they want you to pick one of their pre-existing products to be included in T:ANE.

And FWIW, Yes, I am a member of quite a few "Clubs". Jelly?

There are probably thousands of variations of engines. Where do you suggest that they start? I think they've given us a fairly good variety and the community has given us ample locos to choose from. N3V has given us the tools to make our own, so you might want to give that a try. Have you ever considered how long it takes to create a loco from scratch. We're talking months of work just for one loco.

If there's something out there that you want that bad, you may have to build it yourself. I've said this before and I'll say it again, most creators build locos that they personally want for themselves if they're going to spend that much time creating it or else they make it to get paid for it.

One other thing: It doesn't make content creators want to create more content when you cry and whine and scream when they don't make it. Occasional requests are one thing, but they make content for themselves, like Leeferr said. If you are as inept at 3d modeling as I am, try reskinning.

EDIT: My apologies Mike, I wrote the following BEFORE you edited your post to address Zelda, but I am leaving it in-tact, as I wrote it, because I did infact write it. I misunderstood what you were saying, so I apologize in advance for the following.

Get off your high-horse Mike. I've been making content for MSTS since 2007, and for Trainz since 2012 when I purchased TS2010.

They have a Poll asking a question...people are trying to answer, and can not. PERIOD.

This is not a Gimme Pig situation, so go back to "taking your toys and going home", as you've said you're doing with your content.

Then why did you complain about them not making a Conrail SD38 if you have the capabilities to make it yourself? Your argument doesn't make any sense to me.

Edit: Big ol' misunderstanding here. I should have read back a bit, my bad.

I DID NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT THEM NOT MAKING AN SD38 (As far as I know, mine and RRMods are the only two available for Trainz.)

I complained about them not FIXING THE POLL...write-in answers not accepted, even though they have a spot for it.

jacksonbarno
February 7th, 2014, 10:20 PM
Oh, then nevermind. I fully agree with what you said about fixing the poll. It isn't really even an option. The write in spot is there, so they can say "write in your own favorite locomotive" and then they can just disregard it in favor of your other "answer."

I never did such a thing. I was making a statement, which is true right now, that N3V is not caring for there customers very well. They haven't fixed the majority of bugs for Trainz 2012, they don't fix there surveys if something doesn't work, etc, etc. They need to listen to there customers, not just through the Helpdesk, but on the forums as well.

No apologies necessary. I thought that I had quoted Zeldaboy14's post when I wrote my post, but I hadn't. That's why I edited my post...to avoid any confusion about it.

Mike

BTW: I never said that I was taking my toys and going home.

jacksonbarno
February 7th, 2014, 10:32 PM
You edited it yes, but you only edited it because of the fact that I commented about it. They are still two different comments, and so editing it doesn't change the fact that you said it. If you don't want to receive heat for something, then think about your comment before you post it.

So you're saying that N3V should build everyone's favourite loco, instead of giving us a list to choose from?

LNER all the way!
I wonder where Zeldaboy gets his locomotive classifications from, they was no LNER "A0" class, at least not that I can find reference to. As for Gordon, it is a huge shame it is stored out of use at Highley, as far as I know it does not require too much work to get it going again.

Zeldaboy14
February 10th, 2014, 03:22 PM
I still would like to see a LNER A3 Flying Scotsmen with BAKED TEXTURES :mop::D:mop:. As for Gordon, I've read he was a prototype when he came to sodor, and was later upgraded to a LNER A3 like all of his brothers.

The A0 was supposedly the A1's unbuilt prototype.

There's some 'information' here: http://www.pegnsean.net/~railwayseries/rss-a0-Pacific.htm

I would like to see two things:

1. Nothing baked as baking is horrible when not done right, and I only know of 4 people who do it right.
2. More pioneering locomotives. British pioneering locomtives.

Rocket and Der Adler are both already in Trainz. They may be built to UTC or '04 specifications but they're there.

I'd like to see 'Planet' 2-2-0 There's also a replica around which details can be gathered from. It's a bit out of the way for N3V but I'm sure some letters or emails would dig up some great specs from which this quaint little locomotive can be modelled.

A1/A3s were never referred to as Flying Scotsmans, only 4472 carried that name, which in turn was named after the non-stop London-Edinburgh train. The train came first, not the locomotive. 4472/60103 wasn't even that well known until preservation.

Just now saw this post..

There is nothing wrong with baking, it greatly enhances how almost any model looks. There's only a few ways to mess up baking.
1. bad mapping, I mean really really bad mapping
2. too low of samples
3. wrong light level when baked
4. objects incorrectly placed, leaving a mark that shouldn't be there.
5. you don't have 3ds max, blender or simply a program that has that feature (unless you're felix_g who can hand bake stuff extremely well)

What I think you mean is that you only know of a small amount of people that actually utilize texture baking...

Hmmm, well, this is what this poll is for isn't it, to find out what folks would like to see in a new version, however, I'm intrigued as to whether this will be a new bit of DLC, or, built-in, as I wouldn't consider them inputting a Payware quality locomotive/train into the game as default, or, would they ??

Anyway, I voted for the Japanese Bullet Train, but, of course, we'd need an authentic route for it to run on, so, maybe I'm asking for too much, over to you now Mr. Hilliam, go on make my day.......:hehe:

I voted for the Dash 9 (my second choice), so I could put the GE AC6000CW as my 1st choice (other). The GE AC6000CW was not listed, and I can not find any of these in the Content Manager. I love modern power houses. From what I understand only BHP, CSX and Union Pacific use the GE AC6000CW Loco.

I also love the SD40 and up series.
