    I'm pleased to say Big Bertha is complete and available on the DLS. Actually I only just got the notification from N3V and already there have been a few dozen downloads.

    There are three versions available and a total of 11 assets including:

    3 locos in MR, LMS and BR numbers and logos

  2. Big Bertha Build - Almost there!

    by , August 10th, 2012 at 08:09 PM (Paul's (PCAS1986) Trainz Blog)
    I've spent the past week tidying up the many (computer) folders that contain Big Bertha's source files prior to beta release. This I sent to Kieran a couple of days ago. Murphy's Law promptly arose and I discovered that the engine spec was faulty.

    The engine spec I had been using for months caused the safety valves to lift and consequently there was a loud hissing noise after a few minutes of running. This didn't bother me during development as I was mostly just checking meshes and ...

  5. Big Bertha Build - Cab Interior - Revised Controls

    After some discussion with my client, we have decided to base Big Bertha's cab interior on the 2-8-0 7F. There are many similarities with Big Bertha and the 7F so this seems a reasonable way to go.

    Unfortunately this means discarding some of the controls I was going to use and starting over.

    So the new controls will be based on the photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/railsim...th/3752663789/
