    Default *FIXED* Convert MSTS to Trainz 2021

    I'm looking for a way to convert MSTS items to Trainz formats. I looked all over the internet and no program works for me. Shape Converter is no longer available and Train Sim Modeler is incompatible with my computer. Does anyone have a copy of Shape Converter? If so, that would be nice.


    Update: I managed to find the program, and hopefully I can get it to work.

    Why would you want to convert an MSTS item to trainz? The assets and locomotives found in the base game aren't even that good.

    Since you're a NYC kind-a-guy, I wonder if you're familiar with this NYC website.
    Looks like a lot of good stuff to browse. Go down to "Central Headlight" and "Collinwood Shop"
    Good reading.

    I'm looking to convert the Stinky Cheese locomotive from TrainSim to Trainz.

    I can suggest you to make a model from scratch rather than converting from MSTS (2000) to modern games.

    MSTS had a limit of 10,000 polys, the body, bogeys, cab, and shadow are all in one and the cab is 2D and useless.

    Train Hunter Junior (Now 478M Rails) made some pretty good comeng's, I got them myself. They come in EDi and Alstom Metlink, PTV and Life Extension Livery. He is currently working on making better ones, here is a video demonstrating it from someone he gave them to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0Zc...ainspotter2007
