Step Van Delivery Trucks; Removing Night Mode

by Euphod on March 13th, 2012 at 09:25 AM
It occurs to me that some users may wish to have some of the delivery step vans that I have reskinned from Dave Snow's original FexEx ground Delivery Step Van as non-night mode objects.
Why is that? Well, I can easily picture an industry on your line that may have a fleet of such vans parked overnight waiting to make their rounds in the morning.

Early American Anti Railfans

by Euphod on February 20th, 2012 at 10:11 AM
Construction of the railroads in early America was not met initially with enthusiasm and glee. Honestly, very few advances in transportation are. We are all aware of the initial distrust and skepticism toward the automobile, and I'm certain air transportation and steamships were just as maligned when they appeared on the horizon. I have a two humorous excerpts for you today on the subject, and I hope they lighten the disappointment for you if you didn't receive that new gift that you wanted this
