Gmax - Shadow roof meshes

Virtual (Trainz)

Last updated: 30.07.2009 07:03  
Hi, and welcome to the Virtual side of this page! In here you will find things related to the game Trainz, and info/pictures of my model(s) of the Railroads of the Cripple Creek District!
But, you will also find stuff about other things I've done in Trainz/gmax not so much related to the District, as I felt a need to be able to also show things I do to sort of sharpen my skills so I will learn and do a better job with Cripple Creek!

There is not much in here for the moment, but I hope that will change soon - as soon as I'm over this sort of emptiness feeling I have for the moment. I'm sort of having a mental/creator block for the time being.
Not done much for the Cripple Creek projects lately, but I did help out a friend with his Gilpin Tram projects, using that as sort of a way to learn new techniques and ways of doing stuff for my own projects.
I do hope I will be back south soon... J

Just thinks I need a new computer, more powerful and better for 3D work then the one I'm at for the moment.

Explaining of words...

HOG Hand Of God - made by a user of Trainz to help assist the making of landscape with the help of DEM files.
DEM's Digital Elevation Model - form for 3D digitized topographic maps, almost all of USA is available free on the Internet. Use MicroDEM - or other programs - to read them.
MicroDEM A program to read/convert DEM's and other digital maps.
TIGER Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing system - sort of a digital road map showing roads, rivers, tracks, powerlines and so on, is being used with DEM/MicroDEM to see where roads, tracks and so on are.
