Station platforms updated Version 2.5 posted at: Mon May 21 13:31:27 2012

This pack is the first set of station platforms updated to TS2009+. This is a further extension of the improvements included in the trial version, with a further improved texture and script (including a configurable stopping position). There is also a couple of new versions, with shorter platforms than previously available. As before, they should work in any version from TS2009SP1 upwards.

Station platform update to TS2009+ standard Version 2 posted at: Sat Feb 18 11:26:33 2012

This is a ground up rebuild to TS09+ standards of the VSR 'bare station platform'. It is Error and Warning free in TS2009, TS2010 and TS12. It has a new mesh, a high res texture with normal mapping, and uses the '.m.tbumpenv' material. It should work in any version from TS2009SP1 upwards.

I would appreciate feedback on this first rebuild. I'd hate to rebuild 20-30 more just like this one, and then discover there's a major problem with it...

Kestrel on your Desktop ... Again Version 1 posted at: Tue Apr 1 06:50:36 2008

I didn't expect to be doing more renders of Kestrel, but I've been persuaded to put all the component meshes back together (with the new shape roof), and do some more renders...

Brake Rigging Image posted at: Sun Sep 30 01:07:17 2007

The external brake rigging is now complete, having at last found a good closeup of the original bogie with discernable details. Sadly, the complexity of that brake rigging has added ever more polygons though...

... now to bash the cab roof into shape ...

Updated MkIIIa links News posted at: Tue May 22 02:26:17 2007

Seems like I forgot a vital piece - the new library code!

I've now updated the MkIIIa packages with the library, they should work much better now.

Public Beta - MkIIIa Virgin FO & TSO Version 0.5 posted at: Mon May 21 08:44:23 2007

This is a public beta of my MkIIIa, in Virgin livery.

They use a replacement for BlueStar called Active Coupling Standard (or ACS for short).

These have been built for TRS2004. While they should work in TRS2006, CMP will show both 'warnings' and 'errors' because of the BlueStar tags, which remain for backwards compatibility reasons. Do not try and 'fix' these errors, these tags are included deliberately!

Do not try to reskin these! The mapping is not finished, and I've already got other skins in development.

Possible unreliability approaching News posted at: Sun May 6 10:43:58 2007

I'll be without a permanent internet connection for the next three weeks or so while I relocate myself - and as a result, I have to transfer my DNS provision to a service provider for the duration. While this is happening, there may be some unreliability in getting to my site or emailing me - the site isn't going away, it's just that name lookups on the domain may not be 100% reliable.
