General information

Train construction tutorials
Quite a complete guide on how to create a train cabin for BVE4. Suitable for everyone, who does not want to build a 3D cab; it is written for BVE4, but the principles are functioning in openBVE as well.

Tools and utilities
Brno BVE website.
Brno BVE website offers the following tools: 3D Tree, Bench builder, RailGen, RouteShifter and openBVE Script editor to make your life as a developer easier. These tools are available for free and their products can be redistributed freely.

BVE klub fansite.
This Hungarian website not only offers quality content, but also some helpful tools and utilities: ForestBuilder, B3D converter, the good old ResChanger, etc. This website is very active and useful.

Evgeny Shatohin's website.
Russian website with a few tools that might come handy to any developer as it contains a series of "easy" tools. Particularly interesting is the "Easyhill" program, which allows you to create various forms of dikes.

József Riesz's website.
A Hungarian website that comes up with a wheel calculator and house builder. If you browse the website carefully, you might also meet animated objects (flying birds)
