View Full Version : Some Scenery Items I've Been Working on

July 26th, 2011, 04:04 PM
I'm going to be making a series of RVs that are actually going to be quite detailed. Here's a few screenshots/renders of the two axle fifth wheel.


This one has the awning closed.


This one with the awning open.


Awning open from the front where it actually shows the kingpin box and kingpin as well as the landing gears. This fifth wheel actually has axles and Springs as well and I may actually put steps on the side and vents and vent covers possibly because I'm not done detailing it yet.

I plan a series of these both with the slides open and closed as well as the awnings open and closed and I plan to do a two axle as well as a three axle and then probably some class A's going all the way up to a 45 foot Monarch coach.

These will be phototextured so they will actually look quite realistic. I will be adding certain things like ladders and steps and vents and awnings etc. to give them an even more three-dimensional realistic look.

Let me know what you think and whether or not they'd be useful, because I think filling up an RV park with nice-looking RVs could always be a plus.

Useful?? These would be sweet! Very nice looking, can't wait to see how this turns out!

Alright! I want one. Will you also make some Ford F series, Dodge Rams to go with em? Oh yeah.... And some Chevys too I suppose:hehe:

Could you do a beat up version for the low lifes that live in my trainz world?:hehe:

July 26th, 2011, 05:36 PM

And that's all that matters. They will be wonderful additions to Trainz and are eagerly anticipated, but the most important fact is your last statement. As long as it remains fun, keep doing it...:)

I've run into 3 state camp grounds I have to do on my route and there are not a lot of options.

I went out looking for images of a class a coach, being that it's summertime here in Yuma there ain't many left and won't be many here until October. And I wanted to see about modeling a coach so I found opposing sides of the same coach and decided to meld those together with the front and rear from two other coaches that I found online. The result actually doesn't look too bad:hehe:





I will be able to play around a little until this fall but really after late September early October when everybody gets back then I'll be able to get some really good pictures of quite a few different rigs.


I can think of a Dodge three-quarter ton diesel that I would be able to get some good shots of both sides and front and rear right now. My old F 350 wouldn't make a good model, it's too faded and the hips are cracked. But this fall it's something I might be able to get accomplished.

:cool: Your struck a nerve here. Diesel motorcoaches have been a life-long interest of mine...:hehe:

Here are some resource sites, these links direct to drawings and specifications....here is where the 'better-half' live...

The Prevost Media Center has a Bus Shell Brochure (http://www.prevostcar.com/cgi-bin/pages.cgi?page=media_pub_conversion) is a .pdf file with a resizable drawing and specifications.

We need some VIP, Entertainer ("Stagecoach"), Custom Coaches (Motorhomes), Travel Coach & Linehaul Passenger Coaches.

Those really are looking good. The whole point is to have fun.

Can't have a 300k coach and skimp on a 5k datastorm...:hehe:


Datastorm closed..


Little better view and I should be able to get all the graphics for the logos...


Open and ready to go...


I think this would look really cool lit up with the blue light in nightmode...:D

July 27th, 2011, 04:39 PM
It looks good, but the shots are fuzzy.

It looks good, but the shots are fuzzy.

Well working with bits and pieces scrounged from the net one can only do so much...

the coach is technically 3 different coaches, front and rear are different coaches and the sides are the same one...

But the experiment is to create it and see what it takes and if it is feasible then in a couple of months when they all roll back in here to yuma I can get good high rez photos and do it right...

Now some models like the datastorm and awnings and such can be created and then merged back in later on different models...

Fixed up nightmode and even though i put a blue light in 3ds max on the dish it comes out white in the game...


I guess the way to solve that would be putting a blue texture on the nightmode mesh for that dish... Will try that tomorrow...

July 28th, 2011, 06:27 AM
Can u make a C class? That is what my family has. 29ft Ultra.

July 28th, 2011, 07:09 AM
hi mate

just beautiful

any chance of you uploading some without the dish and aircon?

please, if possible

that gives so much more scope for use

cheers mate

Yeah I am putting together variations of the model (everything closed/awnings open etc) as soon as I work out some paint color issues (since i used 3 different rvs to texture it) I will release it...


If you get me 4 photos right/left side and front and back and make sure they are straight on I will make one of it... just send me an email through here or through my site...

July 28th, 2011, 11:23 AM
geee i want to order one,,,,, look nice,,,

July 28th, 2011, 11:32 AM
Well I solved the datastorm (house of the blue light) issue and now it is blue...


July 28th, 2011, 12:16 PM

July 28th, 2011, 12:17 PM
