  1. Embrace your inner blogger...

    Granted, this blog feature is new to Trainz and many members seem to be confused by it all. Some blogs here are nothing more than a question "what's this for?" To answer this metaphysical question, I can only reply "have you actually ever read a blog before?"

    There are many of them out there on the interwebs; a lot of frustrated pseudo journalists that have something to say to the world. Have you read any?

  2. How I make ground textures

    Third-party programs used in this tutorial:

    - IrfanView, an awesome image viewer that also has some image editing functions. http://www.irfanview.com/.
    - GIMP, an awesome image editing program. http://www.gimp.org/.

    First step is to take your digital camera outside during the day and take some pictures. Hold your camera high up in front of you, pointing at the ground. We want the camera to be high above the ground because the finished texture will cover a 10m x 10m ...
  3. Setting up a ground texture asset for TS2009 and up

    Excuse me while I hike my pant's waistband up under my armpits. There, that's better.

    Now then, I notice a few posts on the forum having sport at the restored "station stops" timeline. We all know how useful it can be when trying to help a poster that manages to provide every bit of information about their computer, except what version of Trainz they are using. To make the job even more challenging they have decided to post their problem in the "General Trainz" forum, ...

  5. On Board Were the Twelve...

    by , February 14th, 2012 at 11:36 AM (The Deadliest Kvetch)
    Apologies to Donovan. His song "Atlantis" was quite the hit around 1968 - '69 in the US, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. It spoke of the mythical Atlantis as a doomed civilization that sent ships to the rest of the world, in effect "seeding" other continents with the best it had to offer; the "twelve". Although the twelve were specifically mentioned as "The poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist, the magician and the other so-called Gods of our legends." ...
