Hey Guys,

I've been looking for a while but I can't seem to find any good steam Downloads avalible for TRS2006. The ones that look good are the 4-8-2 locomotives, but they are all set to the 1522 whistle and bell, which I HATE!!!!! I can't stand it! I searched ATSF on the download station and I came across a ATSF Tender at the bottom of the first page. It had a locomotive with It. Anyone know what locomotive that is?


Thanks a bunch for your help in advanced,

Ben


P.S.: I've seen in some screenshots the 2467. Anyone know where that is?

I beleive you are talking about the USA ATSF Class 2900, 2925. Which a quick google tells me its a 4-8-4. As for the 2467 I'm not sure.
Kenny
Ps one engine I like is the USA SP Class GS-4 Steam Engine. Kuid 59906:4449. It is made for an older version of trainz but can be made to have all the functions of TRS06. If intrested see this post.

This goes for most any older Steam engine.

yes the GS-4 is an excelent one. and as smash said most erhaps all the earlier steam locos will work in 06. i have the rare articulated 2-4-4-2 loco. found on DLS just cant remember what subject its under. if you want real good locos go to Loco section right after the search in the box you will see a larger search box. under region/country go to Pacific. put in time period 1950's for most results, under class go Steam Loco & Tender, put origional for best results and hit search! this i use constantly. try it with all different countrys i dont know what will show up but go ahead and try it! thats where i found most of my steam locos.

HI
I remember before the big meltdown of the forum there a number of steam locomotives on the drawing board. I was keeping track of their progress but haven't see anything in this new forum. Also ther was a steam loco that was put on the DLS last Christmas that was for TRS 2006 - does anyone have the kuid for it.
thanks

@titaniclover - I can wait for the 2-4-4-2 and I have the 4-8-8-4 already. Tried looking myself at the DLS, but couldn't find it with the combinations i used. Rats!:rolleyes:

If you check out username Euphod on the DLS you will find his release of Pacificseven's USRA 4-6-2, plus a couple of reskins, including 2467, the SP one. Zorronov has also done a weathered version of it which is quite nice.

You may also want to search for wgandsk on the DLS as he has released an NYC 0-6-0, PRR H9 2-8-0 and PRR E6 4-4-2. altodave also released several updated 0-6-0's which are excellent also. For others, try Ben Neal's website at http://steammachine.com/bdaneal/ where he has quite a few locos.

If you don't like the sounds of the Frisco 4-8-2, I have put three US steam whistle and bell soundpacks on the DLS that may be of use. Search my username on the DLS.

All the locos I have mentioned above are compatible for both 2004 and 2006.

Cheers
Tony

I try not to get mixed up in these types of discussions about what is "best" because those who are not nominated as best can get upset.

But I'd suggest that one steamer that is well worth downloading is the S class locomotive, kuid 81997:302:2

It downloads clean - all the dependencies will come with it.

The sound might not be to everyone's taste, but that can be easily changed by aliasising to another steam lcocomotive sound.

Does it come with a tender or is it a separate download? Also, how do you change the locomotives sound?

philskene

Hi strasburg --

The tender is kuid 81997:1302

Changing sounds?

In essence, it involves substituting the sound specified in the config.txt file of the locomotive with the sound from another locomotive.

The tricky part is locating the config.txt file for the locomotive, finding a sound to use and then editing the config.txt file.

If you do a search of this Forum using philskene as the search word you will find a tutorial by me about making older steam locomotives work in TRS2004. It describes how to alias sounds.

The same principles apply in TRS2006 except TrainzObjectz does not work - you must use CMP. As a brief guide, locate the locomotive in CMP, right click, choose "Edit in Explorer" and the folder for the locomotive will open. Follow a similar process to that outlined in the tutorial.

If you need further help, please ask.

Phil

(Edit - the results in TRS2006 may still be disappointing. I believe there may be some residual sound issues with steam locomotives in this version of Trainz.)

Why would you want to change such a lovely three cylinder sound as that on the S class. Jeez I dunno, some people have no taste ;)

Seriously though, there are quite a few different soundpacks you could use as substitutes if you wanted.

The 2006 sound problem for steam that Phil mentioned is that a) we still have only two exhaust beats per rev at slow speed and b) the higher speed loop does not pitch shift, i.e. get faster, as the loco speeds up.

Still, the mighty S class is a fine looking loco. If you are looking for something more diminutive, check out my little T class 4-8-0.

Cheers

if its U.S. standard gauge you like got just to love those little 0-6-0's (USRA) there great litle locos in many livers and love those ones with working markers on them too.

If you don't mind running Australian locos as well, your just got to download all of the NSW locos, (Some are being updated) they are so nice, then theres that SAR T class that has been mentioned, the new victorian ones plus the about 5 QLD ones as well.

As for British there is just too much choice and don't know where to start.

There is also dome nice European ones as well.

Very hard to say items when there is just so much good choices

Good Day,
Though I can't help you with your steam problem I thought you might like this bit of info. I have both road & chased Frisco 1522 when it was still in excursion service & the whistle on this loco is accually a river steam boat whistle & is problely one of the best sounding steam whistles out there. Be nice if someone would make a loco with this whistle sound ?

Have a good one.

The last reasonable post in this thread was on January 7th, 2012. That is post #45

Since then, post #46 is meaningless and post #47 is from someone who has not registered.

I sense this thread merits a closure.
