View Full Version : need help with my custom traffic.

Yeah, my custom traffic works pretty well except for the fact that the 1950s ice cream truck that i put in runs backwards. Is there any way to fix this? The 1950s pickup trucks do the same thing. Also several of the Bel Aires that i downloaded have only the wheels, headlights, and bumper showing, while the rest of the bel Aires show everything, and even drive the right direction.

The orientation is set when the creator makes the car in gmax or whatever. They were originally only meant for static scenery, so in that sense the orientation didn't matter, and since there is no standard direction, some of them will end up driving backards or sideways along the roads.

With a bit of experience, you can tell which ones will face the right way by looking at them first in Trainz Object Explorer, Fileviewer or Shape Viewer. Example, if they face towards you when you open them in TOE, they work OK as traffic (if I recall correctly). Unfortunately a lot of otherwise brilliant cars can't be used.

As for those Belairs etc, you're not the only one to see problems with them. I have had the same issues. They are lovely, but there's something very odd going on with the textures. And it seems to vary from car to car.
