    Here we see how well TRS2006 handles the train itself.

    The first time I used the actual Supertrain TV theme for something.

    Testing the locomotive in TRS2004, to see if it was working even.

    What? This?



    The link on the last page works perfectly well. The same cannot be said for the route which needs massive work to function in TANE. The train itself seems functional, sort of.
    Dear Mississippi,
    Thank you for sending us all your intelligent women.
    With Love,
    California.

    Sorry I've been away for awhile, but been playing around w/ this new program called BLENDER, seeing if I can make things with it.

    - The links on page 1, post 1, are from my old site, the server is long gone, go to link in my sig instead. ( below )

    - The Route unfortunately is made from a lot of old assets that haven't been updated for latest version of Trainz ( no way to fix that )

    Looks like I'll have to create a new route, from scratch, I don't have TANE yet so no way to test what's wrong or not working with it

    "As Is" even in it's present un-restored condition, with decades of dust, grime, and with mouse truds', chicken & bat poop on it. That may be worth 10's of thousands of dollars, or maybe more ! If you restore and try to polish it up yourself, it may actually damage the condition, as an expert restoration person needs to methodically clean it up professionally.

    Although the "SuperTrain", with its' super broad wide gauge tracks, was a completely ridiculously lamebrained, totally harebrained idea, and the TV series was a complete utterly ridiculous, 13 week, 5+ million dollar, "Flop", "SuperTrain" (on the DLS) is kinda fun





    NBC's Supertrain is here come aboard for a ride. What a great idea to make a show like "The love boat" but on a super luxury gigantic high-speed train crossing the continent at 200 mph! The star of the show would be of course THE SUPERTRAIN, the regular cast and popular guest stars.Incredible huge sets were built that had cost about 6 million dollars (in 1979 that was a lot of money...) Everything was done to make it look real and Big. Great disco themes and music composed by Bob Cobert. But the show was a failure.Too much on the container and about no content. Silly stories with too much improbabilities. The look of the show changed at each episodes with 3 different opening themes in just 10 episodes! Was it Drama? Was it suspense? Was it a disaster movie? Was it a comedy show? Was it a slapstick comedy with recorded cheers? All this happen when a show is rushed into production without clear guidelines on the format and the background of the main theme. Good stories, good writing and good technical consultants would have saved this SUPERTRAIN from crashing. How can you possibly believe that the government and the American people would allow an atomic-powered train to cross the America at 200mph without any single safety system on board? Would you like to have a Tchernobyl on rail? That's insane! Anyway, i did this video to celebrate THE SUPERTRAIN. Because i love trains and this one is sure one of a kind. I used many of the themes including the recycled theme from "CHAIN REACTION". In the first part you'll see supertrain's departure from NY followed by different shots of the models. (note: on one of the night shots, you'll see only 5 cars. This was probably filmed after the crash that destroyed half the train, but that's another story... ) Then you'll see the end of the inaugural trip from the pilot "Express to terror" OK I re-edited it but it's close to the original (meaning the original is as silly...) I would have loved a shot of the swimming pool during the emergency stop!!!!

    This is what happens when you try to mix Buck Rogers and Love Boat !

    The model train featured in the NBC show Supertrain came for sale. I have estimated the gauge to 24" for the outdoor one. The smaller one has a 12" track gauge and is the model found in 2018. https://supertrain.tavres.com, http://www.core77.com/posts/30641/Ame...

    Absolutely amazing, and I thought I had seen exotic Trains in the past, never saw this on TV, must have been working hard the day this came out......

    WOW I see it was running 9 episodes and 2 hour Pilot,,,,,I really missed the BOAT....LOL I mean Train on this one.........

    "Supertrain is an American television drama/adventure series that ran on NBC from February 7 to May 5, 1979. Nine episodes were made, including a 2-hour pilot episode. Wikipedia "

    Cleaning up the route as best as I can
    ( downloading missing bits & pieces by way of the game itself )
    Also fixing it so it's a bit more compact
    ( namely skipping the NEC stuff to save space as it's a huge download )

    Cool, an updated Supertrain version to your older creation, what is the track gauge ?

    Super Track, well, actually I'm making the track in Gmax so it'll be dual guage, so you can drive normal sized trains on the same tracks as SuperTrain, track is just made up of boxes to save me headaches from trying to make something so small in the program ( meh ) it seems to wig out a lot when you go too far down in scale, things start to fly 'round in the 3D viewport namely

    Having problems making the train in Blender, 'cause I forgot how I made it in Gmax, basically relearning Gmax just so I can use that as a guide to help me w/ Blender

    Oy vey, knew I should of saved progress on the last version I made, heh heh heh, I pretty much have had to use a old version to start from, oh well, figures...

    Might get a lot of blender plug-ins to make it more like Gmax so I have a better idea on what to do...

    I might suggest you take a stroll over to MSGSapper's thread, he has been doing a lot with Blender.......And is a very knowledgeable in several areas of Asset Building Concepts.....

    Note - THIS WAS NOT MADE IN BLENDER -



    Turns out the issue with the Gmax version of everything is a lot of legacy files that were hidden in the models, happened w/ each update I did going by how the error messages are, I'm guessing this 'cause said messages are a bit over my head to translate into English, but I just went into Gmax & started to remove the old image files from the train cars one by one, yea, this is gonna take some time, but look at it this way, if I get it working in the newest TRS, I can go backwards & get it to work for the older stuff, TANE & Soforth namely, it works as-is in everything from TRAINZ to Trainz Classic, just AFTER that I run into problems, but NOW it more or less tells me what the problems are this time around.
