Exterior of the R68/R68A will continue development
« on: September 25, 2012, 12:35:50 pm »
I just want to announce that I will be continuing what I started. And yes, you read it correctly - I will be making both the R68 and the R68A. I was supposed to make the R142A as well, but I decided to go on hiatus, so that was passed on to others. (I have no regrets though, and I wish the developers of the R142A good luck as well!  :) )

Some things that I want to point out before I end this post:
- I haven't started anything yet - I just want to set out a goal and work it out from there. So, no pictures here.
- View my old threads for what I have done so far. I'll continue from there, but may have to study them again to remember what I did. All those textures will be replaced though, as they are not mine.
- I have a good-quality camera myself, so I will be the one supplying nearly all of the textures. But if you still want to send textures to me, particularly the ones that you think I might find useful, then sure, I'll take a look.
- What I will need: textures for areas that I have no access to, such as the cab. I plan to make a 3D cab.
- This will NOT be animated. Maybe I'll look for someone who can animate it when it's almost finished, but for now I'll work on it and see if I can learn it on the way.
- I am not over-exaggerating. I know I can make something as good as what Rikabs or BStyles have made. So, that is what everyone should expect - a highly detailed R68/R68A exterior.
- I am in college, and I am at a point where I need to think of a major, my career, and what my future will be. Of course, I will have a lot of work and stress from college. Don't be surprised if there aren't any updates. But I will try some kind of time management so I can work on the exteriors a little bit.

Feel free to use textures from my 68 cab or use that as a cab for your project, and good luck.

Yeah, Mr. Railfan has essentially done all the work on the cab already, and it doesn't lag like a 3D cab, you might as well use that...

The cab could use a little touching up, sharpening the edges and what not, but flat out agreed, you already have a cab for this train.

Great news. But you should just take over Pacific's R68 project and work on from there, it will be easier.

I have the sounds for the howling motor if you need it.
