Baby Sulzers

Post by thehoviskid on Fri Jul 05, 2013 1:20 am

It's been a bit quiet lately, so......

There's a Class 24/24 passing object available courtesy of Alan Hudnot "East Lincolnshire Railway), with a bit of tidying from Chris Lees (BVE Cornwall) and a bit of code from Graymac (some Island off to the left somewhere), ans using original textures from Jamie Course (behind a Class 31 somewhere, and so a long way away, moving very slowly but with a great deal of noise)

Well, thats thought, it's worth a tinker, that is!  So I did.  One external view in place

There's no driveable Class 24 or 25 (trivialities, eh?) but the BVE TMD Class 27 will fit the bill as a substitute.

Pictures?  Oh, go on then....



Yes, i know it should be one stripe or the other round the body, just working on lining things up here.....


Hopefully, an inaccurate headcode....


You shall have rain!  Just to make Graymac feel at home.....




Dutch livery on a Class 25?  Why not!







It's still WIP and there's a few things to iron out.  Ballast Hoppers courtesy of Mr Lees.  There's a few approximations to reduce the number of underframe variations, and as an experiment, there's only two image files for the whole thing, one for the inside and one for the outside, so it should be easy enough to colour your own in.
Here's the outside:


And here's the inside:

The glows are borrowed from the OpenBVE program files, but I need to work out where I found the picture of the engine.....

And here's the Change-it-Yourself code, just comment bits in and out as you like.  If you want it No.2 end leading there's options for that, just use Reversed = True in the extentions.cfg file
Code:

I think that can be arranged.  EWS looked quite good, although I've not reskinned the early body yet, all those grills might not help......

Well, I was rather thinking about the current, red branding. Though it is rather modern and thus designes for modern engines, I think it looks surprisingly good on old engines as well, sometimes complimenting their forms even better than the traditional livery.

Schenker Rail in Poland:
Polish light diesel engine (bahnbilder.de), Polish not so light diesel engine (zughalt.de) and not so Polish not so light diesel engine (rynek-kolejowy.pl).

DB Schenker Rail in the Netherlands:
Netherlandish class 1600 (French built, based on SNCF class BB 7200) electro engine (modelleisenbahn-nettetal.de)

DB Schenker Rail in the UK:
Class 59 (glotransvn.com.vn) and class 37 (railpictures.net) (is talking about railway vehicles in the UK enough to trigger GHCQ's Tempora's interest...?)

DB Schenker Rail at home:
BR 232 (former GDR) diesel engine (stephan180sbahnbilder.startbilder.de) and BR 218 (former Germany-West) diesel engine (Wikimedia Commons)

DB Schenker Rail in Romania:
Some Romanian electrical engine I don't know, though construction details make me think it's a heavily modernized old engine (Flickr)

Well, GCHQ will know where you are by now....  (Hello Chaps!  Cracking weather isn't it?)

Actually, it's not bad as liveries go, as it's not swooshy and swirly.  The colours are a bit 1990s-office-furniture, the old maroon and black was a little more restrained.

Hopefully they don't know how "Innenreinigungsanlage" (innen = internal, Reinigung = cleaning, Anlage = site) is abbreviated, cause I'm being there several times a week, might prove disadvantageous when I'll be doing my British Isles railway tour with the FIP (free international pass).Shocked silent pale

Hi, a few corrections on the recent post you made, i was a bit dissapointed to see the results of the 24/25, whilst i am in no in a position to judge others work, i feel i need to comment...the original passing object is, in my opinion, better than this result, when i agreed to let you alter things, i presumed the result would be better than the original, however i dont think it is, i would prefer if my member name was used in posts, (spelt wrong anyway), the original pics were not Jamie`s, although he has been a source of many brilliant pics, and i dont think my uncle Graymac had any input into this, anyway enough grumbling.....the pics supplied show the original, plus a class 33, pics from Jamie Course....

While I think it is hard to beat BR blue I think it looks the part in Dutch especially with those matching wagons.

As for my livery suggestion, well trainload freight may look fantastic especially paired up and hauling a fair bit of coal  Very Happy

Hi, I think there may be a little misunderstanding there bud as I was just sharing my opinion on the Sulzers, I am not involved in this work just a big fan of bve  Very Happy 

I know what you mean though as I used to do reskins for MSTS back when that first came out, hard to believe that was 15 or so years ago...

Only just spotted this!  Embarassed 

Looking nice there!
Glad my pics were of use for you!  Smile
Hopefully these have progressed a little more since.
