I've decided to start anew. I won't be revisiting the Cass #5 or Class C Climax projects or any other previous projects I began as I find the methods I used then outmoded.
As such I've started a new set of locomotives, the first of which being a Class B Climax of 36" gauge:
I'm really happy how the mesh, animations, and especially the textures turned out on this one. I finally have a technique I personally approve of!
I'm running into the stumbling block of making an enginespec, cab, and loads for it as I've never done these before (I've always used DCC). Also, some form of "hack" for an 8 chuff-per-wheel-revolution sound needs to be done. I'm not good with complex scripts either.
Where do I begin?
