PDA

View Full Version : Need Help Recreating a Certain Trailer Park

So I'm trying to recreate a trailer park from a certain Canadian comedy called Trailer Park Boys, named Sunnyvale Trailer Park. I'm using davesnow's mobile homes, BNSF50's dirt road, Lotharhake's 'LP road gravel narrow' for the driveways, Smileyman' 'UK Caravan Park Office' and 'UK Caravan Park Sign', and Dinorius_Redundicus's chain link fences. Now the question is, what else to add? I checked for a Chrysler New Yorker on the DLS, but no result. Can anyone provide some assistance?
NOTE: I've never watched the show, though my Dad did, I still remember hearing him laughing like a crazy person while watching it downstairs (I live in a split-level house), and my Mom calling it a 'stupid TV show'. I was building a trailer park and when it came to name it, the first one that came to mind was 'The-name-of-the-trailer-park-in-Trailer Park Boys'. I couldn't remember the name at the time, but I decided to name my trailer park that.

The only thing I can think of to add are a mixture of the assets named g: and then whatever grass or shrub you pick. I'm pretty sure theyy are on Trainzdepot's website. The grass assets look very nice, and I think they would look nice in your trailer park. Hope I helped.

Those assets don't work well in T:ANE or even TS12. The trees and grass are nearly invisible. They have been updated or have similar replacements such as the Tundra's trees and that Forrest series up on the DLS.

Well a quick google search turned up that they used almost as many different trailer parks as there were seasons. The only common factor was they all were composed of single wide mobile homes so I took a look on the DLS and it turns out that under "mobile home" nearly all are single wide. Not much help but I did note that wadet126 did some nice porches, trailer hitches, and a re-nameable park sign for his mobile homes. socalwb909 did some mobile homes that look like manufactured homes that look somewhat like the park office in a couple of the mobile home parks used in some seasons.

I appreciate your suggestions, but I'm looking for things such as 'are there any piles of stuff like piles of empty bottles of beer?' I will note that I considered watching the show online, but I decided not to when I looked up the titles of the episodes. I found that they often have expletives, and when the titles have expletives in them, then they're more than likely not censored on the show, and I don't watch shows with such words not censored. I also don't watch shows that are rated TV-MA and/or don't blur the finger, which is why I don't watch the uber-popular The Walking Dead.

So if you don't watch TV-MA, how do you know about the Trailer Park Boys trailer park, which is rated TV-MA? How do you know what kind of park it is or what's in the park? Or why would you want to build it, if it's so objectionable to you? How do you know there are piles of beer bottles laying around. From what I remember they used garbage cans.

Just saying...

Search for "derelict" on the DLS.

I'd say put some unusual stuff in there. Say if you do have a shed, put a brakevan up under the roof. :hehe: Blah thats all from me.

Very funny show. Back in the days when BBC America showed some really great stuff. Why you would want to create it in Trainz I really can't imagine, but I would search the DLS for rusty 80's and 90's pickup trucks and anything with "abandoned" in the description (as someone suggested)
Post some screenshots!

I think most trailer parks of any size have a small building with laundry facilities in them also.

Wikipedia, Google Images, my Dad used to watch it while it was on BBC America, reality TV shows following police that get called to trailer parks, the stereotypical trailer park, several trailer parks near where I live, along with one next to the middle school I went to, and they're often associated with the South.

@normhart:
Thanks for the tip. I'll be adding Dinorius_redundicus' series of 'derelict' stuff for certain. I also found MSGSAPPER's reskins of Dinorius_Redundicus' 'Derelict scrap metal pile 02' to represent piles of metal cans, glass bottles and plastic bottles

So maybe you are looking for Trailer Trash? lookup 'trash' in the content manager, there is even some interesting ground textures. Also lookup 'caravan' as that's another name for mobile home trailer.

Since you are going to all this effort you might want to add a drivable road for <kuid2:101340:9557:1> Deane's derelict car drivable by Gary_Evans so you can drive around in a beater and admire your work. :D

Not that it is relevant to Trainz, but that's not how I remember it. I thought it was a comedy with a regular cast and location and a developing plot. Must have been a different show.

Yes. Trailer Park Boys is what you're talking about. I'm talking about shows such as Alaska State Troopers, which followed the State Troopers of Alaska, who have police powers of the entire state of Alaska. Another show I watch when it's on is Southern Justice, which takes place in Sullivan County, Tennessee and Ashe County, North Carolina, and follows the county police of each county, who only have police powers in their respective counties. Interestingly, Sullivan County borders the county my grandmother and aunt on my Mom's side of the family live in.

I've seen Alaska State Troopers before. Very interesting show. I think maybe you could put a few patrol cars in that park too...maybe somebody is doing something they aren't supposed too. :hehe:

Here ya go, a trailer park in the Mojave Sub, complete with conehead trailers...

Apparently, the cones were intended to be beams of light from additional poles. How they ended up orphaned in a payware route is beyond me...

Way ahead of you. I went ahead and downloaded davesnow's Georgia State Patrol police car, which is parked outside the trailer park office.
