Hello Fellow Trainz Forum Members.

Today, Andrew aka Kingstonflyer and I want to make it official at this time and announce that we have been working on a fictional route over the last couple days called Eagles Pass. The route is a fictional desert route and has a southwest USA flavor to it. We are creating the route for Trainz 2010, But it could possible work for Trainz 2012 as well.

Here is what the route will include and they are as follows:

- There will only be one version of the route
- 75 to 125 miles of double mainline running
- The route will be highly detailed
- Over a dozen bridges all together
- 1 or 2 tunnels are possible
- Alot of mainline running with some switching oppotunities as well
- 2 medium cities on the end of each route with 2 or 3 small towns in between
- A yard in each of the medium size cities while there will be 1 small yard in one of the small towns along the route

Now, Here is what each of us are doing on the route and they are as follows:

Andrew aka Kingstonflyer
- All of the Trackwork
- Telephone poles - Powerlines
- Most of the roads
- Bridges
- Tunnels if there are any
- Signals

Myself aka Eaglefan9727
- Creating the mountain terrain
- Ground texturing
- Vegatation
- Scenery such as buildings and so forth
- Rivers and lakes
- Adding the baseboards

As of right now, We only have a few miles laid out for the route and about a couple miles of scenery completed. The way we are doing this is that Andrew will lay down about 15 to 20 miles of track at a time and the other stuff. When he gets done with that. He will send me the updated version of the route and I will do all the things that I am doing for the route. And once I get those 15 to 20 miles done. Then, I will send him the updated version of the route, So he can do another 15 to 20 miles or Andrew and I will take turns with the route on a weekly basis.

As of right now, We have no idea when this route will be ready. It will get done when it gets done and both of us are happy with the results. Every Monday, I will be posting a couple WIP screenshots of the route, So you can see how the route is going. As for Andrew, I am not sure when or if he will post some WIP screenshots to share with you. That decision will be at his own discretion.

At this time, We would like to share the first 4 work in progress screenshots of Eagles Pass. These shots were taken at 10:00 in the morning with all of the settings on high (Even the draw distance at 5000), But with default skies. Please note: The first two shots are taken of areas where the route is 100 percent completed while the last two shots. I still have to add scenery to those areas.

Take care,
Eaglefan and Kingstonflyer

You have to ask Andrew that question as he is the one that chose the scenery for the route.


Its good to see your back at it Randy.

Thanks my friend. Been about 2 years since I was in MSTS and almost 4 years since the release of Rattlesnake Desert for MSTS.


Reminds me of the landscape of New Mexico :D

That is the kind of look that we are trying to get on this route.

Eaglefan9727: Your route is looking mighty good..May I offer you a suggestion??Use more greenery..not allot..But I am surprised at the greenery in the desert, since I moved here..There are alot of mountains but by no means like mountains in colorado..They are worn down old Mountains, very rugged..Now the greenery does not have the heavy chlorophyll look of the trees in the Midwest..This is only a suggestion..:wave: :wave:

HA...After about 5 years of knowing each other. The truth is out that you are a "Gimmie Pig" j/k......

As for the freeware assets, I am not sure at this time as of yet. We will have to wait and see about that. As for the testing part, You were one of my choices as I have known you for a long time and I also want to see how the route runs on a slower PC as well.

At this time, I am just more concerned about getting the bones of the desert. I can always come back at a later date and add some greenery to the route. Like I told Sniper, Have to wait and see about that.

Update for Monday, August 8th -

Its Monday and it is time for a update concerning the Eagles Pass route.

As of right now, Andrew and I have about 4 miles completed on the route with some minor scenery needed in those 4 miles. Andrew has the route this week and is laying some more track for the route while I will be taking care of some family matters this coming week. I should be ready to get back into the route building mode on Saturday, August 13th. Andrew and I have came up with some interesting ideas for the route and we will see if we can put those ideas into the route at some point down the line.

Anyways, I have 3 screenshots to share with you this week. The scenery is completed in the first 2 shots while there is only the telephone poles and lines near the track still left to do in shot # 3. Have a good week and take care.

Its Monday, So its time for another update on the Eagles Pass route project.

Here are 4 new shots of a area that was done this past week. This area is where the double mainline splits apart for about 3 miles or so. There is also a reservoir in this area of the route. This part of the route was done by Andrew aka Kingstonflyer. This week, I have the route and I will be adding some minor touch ups, scenery, and the terrain for the route. Andrew and I have reached out first town, But at this time. I will be holding off on doing the buildings on the town until Andrew gets done with the small yard and I create the terrain for that part of that area. Im hoping to have a small WIP video and have it to you by next Monday. As promised, Here are 4 shots.

Another week has gone by on this route project and the route is starting to look real good at this point. This week, It is Andrew who has the route as he is doing more trackwork. As promised from last week, I told you that I would do a work in progress video and I have done that. You can find the 4 minute video at the following link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlejtT9XAR0

Also, Here are 3 screenshots that I have for you this week.

Due to hurricane Irene hitting my area in a few hours from now and who knows if I will have power on Monday. I have decided to give you the weekly update today instead of Monday. Right now, Andrew has the route, But today (Sunday). He should be sending me a updated version of the route of what he has done over the last week on the route. Who knows when I will be able to get a chance to take a look at what he has done over the last week and when I will be able to get anything done either. Hopefully, Hurricane Irene wont hit us that bad up where my wife and I live, But we are in the direct path of it with the latest track as of 11:00 pm EST. Anyways, Here are 2 WIP shots that I wanted to post for this update.

Another week has gone by and its time for another update on the Eagles Pass route. This past week, There was not much accomplished as I was busy cleaning up the minor damage that my wife and I had from hurricane Irene for a couple days. I just sent the route over to Andrew just a few minutes ago, So he will have the route this week as he will be doing his thing. PLEASE NOTE - The update for next week will be sometime on Tuesday or Wednesday

Anyways, Here are the 2 WIP shots for this week which includes a shot of the first town on the route which has a 4 track yard. The town is not completed at this time and that is why its not a shot of the complete town.

Eaglefan9727
September 13th, 2011, 06:55 AM
Weekly update - This past Sunday, I got a email from Andrew stating that he was going to have the route for another week for his thing, So I havent been able to see what he has done. Therefore, I have no new screenshots to post this week.

However, I can report that I did a 30 mph run on the route which would take 2 minutes per mile and it took me about 35 minutes to run the route from end to end. That means that there is about 17 to 18 miles laid out with a good chunk of the route with the scenery completed.

Like I said in my original post. Andrew and I are looking somewhere between 75 to 125 miles on this route and both of us are in no hurry to finish this route. It will get done when it gets done and when both of us are happy with the outcome of this route.

Hopefully, This coming Monday. I will have some new WIP screenshots to post.

Sorry ladies and gents once again for being late for the update that I was suppose to give you on Monday, September 26th. Over the last week, This cold has pretty much kept me in bed. This is only the third time since last weekend where I spent some time online and I am still not feeling great.

Anyways, As for a little update. Andrew still has the route and has been working on it when time permits him to. It will most likely be sometime late next week when I will feel good enough to do any work on the route, But only after Andrew sends me the updated version of the route. I am including 2 WIP shots for this update. The shots were taken in the town area and the name of the town is called Kingston.

At this time, Im not sure when I will do another update, But I am hoping that I will be back to normal a week from this coming Monday and I will have a couple more WIP shots to post.

On a final note, All I can say right now is that I am sick of being sick.

Take care and have a great weekend all.

I don't know why, but this route reminds me of the BNSF Railway and the company's Southern Transcon (former ATSF main line) in the southwestern part of the country. It looks and has the feel of the Southwest along the BNSF's former Santa Fe main line. But hey, that's just me. Whatever your think the reminds you of, is your opinion, it's just that it looks very similar to the Southern Transcon to me.

No problem Andrew. I think by the end of the week, I will be ready to put in a some time on the route. Im starting to feel better, But still not 100 percent.

Great screenshots by the way.

The route is suppose to have a southwest flavor of the United States.

At this time, There is no date planned for a release. Andrew and I are still a long ways off from finishing this route. The bottom line is that the route will be release when both Andrew and I are happy with the outcome of the route when it comes to how many milles the route has and the kind of detail that we would like to get on this route. As long as we are not happy with the outcome of it. It wont go for a public release.

Hey guys would you be kind enough to tell me what track (wooden sleepers) and matching ballast you are using? Looks really good.

H222
October 6th, 2011, 07:25 PM
The track is built in to TS10 and '12, under Auran, the ballast I am unsure of Derrick

Jamie

Retro00064
October 6th, 2011, 08:28 PM
Yup, the track is Auran Track TS2009 Jarrah, and the ballast is TS09 58 (or is that 59?) Ballast. I find that you should turn the texture scale past the middle some when using that ballast with that track, so that the size of the rocks of the ballast texture match the size of the rocks in thr track's ballast suitably well.

That track obsoletes MP-Track wood (which appears to be set so in TS2010's data.ja file), so a route that I imported from TRS2004 had the original MP track replaced with the Auran Jarrah track. The Auran Jarrah track looks nice, except when used for junctions and diamond crossings, so I eventually decided to switch to McGuireL's original UltraTrack (with 3D ties; it does not look as bad when used for junctions and diamonds, in my opinion) and ballast.

Regards,

Retro.

For those who have knowledge of bringing buildings over from the google sketchup program to the Trainz program and if you are interested in helping Andrew and I out with a couple things for this project. Please send me a private message.

There will be a route update coming this Monday which will include 5 new screenshots, But I will leave you with a screenshot at this time. A shot of a BNSF pig train leaving the Kingston yard.

Have a good weekend and see you on Monday.

Hello Fellow Trainzers,

Once again, It is Monday and as I promised last week. I was going to give you a update. As of right now, I am at 90 percent compared to how I was feeling this past week and Andrew also sent me the update last Thursday and I have been going at it slowly and making some progress with the terrain and some small detail to the route. I will be working on the route all week before I send the update to Andrew this coming weekend. Over the last couple weeks, There has been no added track laying as Andrew and I have been adding detail to the area that has been laid out already, But hoping to have some new track laid out in a week or two. Like I stated in the original post of this thread. We are in rush to finish this route and it will get done when it gets done and both of us are happy with the outcome of the route. Right now, Here are 6 new WIP shots that I would like to share at this time. Hope you enjoy them. Until next week, Take care.

October 17th, 2011 Update:

Its another Monday which means its time for another update concerning Eagles Pass. This past week while I had the route. I was pretty much finishing up the small details to a specific area on the route called "Snake River" which is about 8 to 10 miles long. While, There is still a little more to do for the Snake River area. Most of the area is completed at this time. This week, Andrew has the route and he has plans to lay a few miles more of track and roads for the route and add some detail as well to the new area of the route. The area that he is doing at this time is right before the fast track running part of the route starts. Once I get the route again, I will add scenery to what ever scenery he has done to the new area and then Andrew and I will go from there.

This week, I have another 6 WIP shots to post and dont forget. Coming next month is preview video # 2 of Eagles Pass which will be from Kingston to Snake River West. I will also include a small cabride video preview with this upcoming preview.

Untill next week, Enjoy these 6 WIP shots and have a great week. Take care.

At this time, Andrew has the route and he is doing some track laying and a couple things. Once I get the route back from him. I will add to what he did on the specific part of the route and go from there. This week, I only have 2 WIP screenshots for your viewing pleasure. Take care and have a good week.

BTW, While this is not the official WIP Preview Video # 2 of Eagles Pass. Here is a short video that I did showing off the new autoracks from JointedRail on the Eagles Pass route. Enjoy......

Hi EF

Can I suggest in the first shot fixing the YARN intersection with KUID2:506208:100115:1 as it is the right roads for the three roads,

And in the second shot, can you please supply a name for the bridge??

Once Andrew sees this thread. He will most likely give you the name of the bridge as he is the one who decides which bridges will be used on the route.

Happy Halloween everyone. I dont have much to report this week as Andrew has had some prior engagements that he had on his plates while I slightly injured myself this past week slipping on the first snowfall of the year in the northeast. Dont worry, The route is still being worked on, But not at the pace as it was a few weeks ago. Hopefully, In a week or two, Things will be back to a slightly normal pace for this route. I am hoping to be able to post the second WIP preview video 2 weeks from today, But I cant make any promises. Anyways, I will leave you with one WIP shot for this week. If you have plans to go out tonight trick or treating. Please be safe and enjoy the evening. Have a good week and I hope to have more to post next week.

November 14th Update:

First, I want to apoligize for no update last week. Real life issues came up and those need to be taken care of before I do any train simming.

Anyways, With this update. I want to announce that about 14 new miles of track were laid down which gets the route to roughly about 32 miles of track laid down at this moment with roughly about 17 miles completed with scenery. This past week, Andrew sent me a preview update and coming later today or on Tuesday. He will be sending me a final update and then I can start on my update for the next couple weeks before I hand it off to Andrew again. At this moment, There is about 2 miles that I need to do with scenery for the Snake River area and once I complete those 2 miles. That is when I will do the second preview video of the route. I hope to have that 2 mile area and video done by Thanksgiving. Andrew has also swapped out the track and telephone pole near the track, But the ones we are using right now wont be released when the route gets released.

Anyways, Here are 2 shots for this week. The first shot is from a area that is pretty much completed with scenery while the second shot needs scenery to be completed. Until next week, Take care.

Its another Monday and this past week, I had the route and I was able to finish up the Snake River part of the route. There are only a couple minor touch ups that I have to do, But for the most part. The Snake River area is completed. I will have the route for another week as I will be moving onto the next part of the route when it comes to the scenery and then next weekend is when I will hand over the route to Andrew once again.

This week, I have 3 WIP shots which all of them were taken in the Snake River area of the route. I am also including the WIP video # 2 which you can find at the following link

The video footage in this video is between Kingston and Snake River West. It is a 8 minute video. I did not include a cab ride in this video.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this preview video and the WIP shots that I am posting. Please note that the next update for the route will be on Monday, December 5th, 2011. Have a good couple weeks and stay safe.

December 5th, 2011 Update:

Hi fellow trainzers - I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and enjoying your holiday season. As of right now, Andrew has the route for the whole month of December as this is the busiest time of the year for me and I will be busy until the start of the new year. It will about Jan. 4th by the time everything calms down on my end and by that time. I will be able to spend some time on the route personally. Im not sure how much progress Andrew will make this month, But if he can just make a small amount of progress. That is fine as Andrew and I are in no rush to finish this route. This will be the last update for the year unless Andrew decides to give you a update on the route. The next update that I will do will either be Monday, January 4th, 2012 or Monday, January 11th, 2012. I am going to leave you with 3 WIP shots for this update and I hope everyone has a great holiday season and see you in 2012. Happy holidays everyone........
