HS2 train exterior model livery [community effort]

Post by mrknowitall on Mon Jan 02, 2012 7:02 pm

As this is the first community made route of 2012, we as a bve community all need to pitch in! Everyone can join in!

What we need is new car exterior textures, these can be composed by any means. i will be making the model, and help will be coming from others too!

Whats needed

image size is 2058 - 512 no more, no less

5 types of car images. with left and right sides ( if you have writing on the sides)

1. power front
2. power back
3. restaurant car
4. normal class
5. first class

You dont need to add windows as this will be done after, but bear in mind space for the doors Very Happy

Front images will be done by me as the exterior is yet to be made.

Anyone is welcome, and let the fun start Very Happy

Are you looking at a specific train, or a mixture of locos, eg class 390 joined by a class 421 Very Happy

All you [ the community] need to go is get a blank piece of canvas, re size to 2058 - 512. and then create a new livery. ill do the rest.

No TVG, 390 or suggestions, We have already got the basic information and such ( we have being brainstorming for ages) now we need a livery.

All you have to do is design Smile

Just nothing that has already being out (virgin,FTPE,GNER) just a new concept.

Bear in mind, that the livery needs to look good, at around 250mph.

We need better specifications: height of doors, height of carraige, length of the "nose", the position of the doors and so on...

Oh, BTW, here's a livery I came up with in 15 minutes. Unfortunately I included my own doors and windows... The HS2 logo is to be replaced with the proper one, which I don't have.

That’s great ! It’s good to see something collaborative.

For power-of-two size, it is 2048 × 512 (211 × 29).

Nando's won't be the only franchise to open a restaurant on HS2 - well...the Nando's restaurant is an example of how HS2 could recover costs, by offering brand name restaurants onboard services.

It think we need to also include a digital display at the doorways, especially as there are going to be different zones onboard the primary HS2 service.
