The list of the 2011 Screenshot of the Week contest weeks now contains all of the contest weeks from 2011 that I could find. Let me know if I got something wrong and need to fix it.

Removing the security restrictions from a folder in the Program Files folder

by Retro00064 on February 25th, 2012 at 03:43 PM
In Windows Vista and Windows 7, the Program Files folder (where many programs' installation folders are located) is protected with security restrictions where administrator privileges are required to write inside that folder. Programs without administrator privileges have their write attempts to this folder redirected to the "VirtualStore" folder in your user account's folder tree. Thus, if you have Trainz installed in the Program Files folder, it is recommended to run Trainz as an administrator

How I make ground textures

by Retro00064 on February 10th, 2012 at 11:06 PM
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

Setting up a ground texture asset for TS2009 and up

by Retro00064 on February 10th, 2012 at 11:06 PM
Create a new folder for your ground texture somewhere.

Place inside it the high-resolution TGA image for your texture.

Next, create a .texture.txt file for your texture. This is a text document, which you can create by right-clicking in your texture's folder, then choosing New -> Text Document. While it is not a requirement, naming this file after the TGA image might be a good idea. For example, if your TGA image is named example.tga, name the .texture.txt file example.texture.txt

Setting up a ground texture asset for UTC or TRS2004

by Retro00064 on February 10th, 2012 at 11:05 PM
Create a new folder for your ground texture in the World\Custom\ground folder of your Trainz installation.

Place inside it the 128 x 128-pixel BMP image for your texture.

Next, create a .texture.txt file for your texture. This is a text document, which you can create by right-clicking in your texture's folder, then choosing New -> Text Document. While it is not a requirement, naming this file after the BMP image might be a good idea. For example, if your BMP image is
