    Why would you convert? Screenshot in Paintshop pro save as .webp fomat. Where does .jpg come into play? It might be nice if N3V allowed screenshots to be captured in .webp format rather than .jpg...

    https://www.jatws.org/johnw/lbsc_wagons.webp

    The above is a .webp image just to test to see if it can be posted in the forum.

    The latest version of paintshop pro certainly will save a file as .webp. I'm not sure about other graphics editors.

  4. use .webp format rather than .jpg for screenshots?

    I've been playing and from what I can see an image saved in .webp format uses less file space than the same image saved as a .jpg and there is very little visible difference.

    Thoughts

    Thanks...

    Do you mean you come from England and are not poor or you think your command of English language is extremely good and your statements could not possibly be taken as ambigious?

    I don't understand what you are saying. "made" is past tense "will" is future. Are you asking someone to make you a headlamp?

    Some on the DLS are over 500k polys. There isn't an easy way to do LOD in Sketchup. It's the number of polys and texture files that have the most impact and the version of Trainz doesn't make much...

    I think the problem would be in the control N3V that have with their own game engine. Scripting and AI come to mind to start with.

    And that is an interesting point, imagination goes a long way. TANE is the last DRM free version of Trainz and I certainly feel more comfortable creating in something that is DRM free.

    Quite a few of the very old stuff are scenery objects that look exactly the same with a 2004 build number or a TS12 build number so they might as well stay as they are.

    I have 1,671 assets on the DLS. There might be one or two that do not have LOD but if they are more than 500 polys it will be in the order of one or two. Many of my assets have been reskinned and...

    Probably what we need is a small library of textured Blender models that can be modified. That might tackle the learning curve problem.

    Thoughts?

    It doesn't take much effort to copy the original and knock a few details off it.

    You only need one level of LOD even if some do seven levels.
