The Americans are going to love this update!
The very popular Double-stack freight car is now officially in the game.
This is the Compact Comp winners choice of freight wagon.
Also, let it be known that despite Ze Trackmeister winning first place in both the Color Comp and Compact Comp, he hasn't claimed the actual first prize either time! both times he has generously passed on the first place prize to the runner up, and opted to choose a prop instead.
Also a huge thank you to Long who built the original double-stack quickMod which was modified for this update!!
You can find the new double-stack wagon in the "freight 2" drawer along with a bunch of variations (2 containers, 1 container and empty):
Just like the old NZ-style container wagons, these new double-stacks have randomized container colors.
The colors are randomized every time you clone the wagon, but i have added a new feature where if you hold SHIFT while cloning or placing the wagon, its randomized colors will stay the same. This feature applies to all the wagons that use randomized elements, including the old NZ container wagons.
These new double-stacks also feature custom liveries of course!
In fact you can already find some examples on the Steam workshop.
You can find the new livery template in the "Rolling Line -> modding -> templates" folder, or download it here:
The 2 container, 1 container and empty liveries all use the same template! The container parts of the livery are just ignored depending on what livery type you use.
e.g. if you make a single container livery, only the bottom-left container on the livery template is used, and the bottom-right is ignored.
Since the double-stacks are very tall, I've also added a new taller style of tunnel to fit them! You can find this in the track "tools" drawer.
There are also a couple of other small things included:
- The text input limit (for naming workshop items, saves etc) has been removed.
- The particles from the coffee cup prop have been fixed (they previously had a shader error)
I hope you enjoy the new wagons!
Next up is likely to be some new Brazil-themed buildings and urban props.
I'm also looking at releasing the Rolling Line soundtrack on steam (for free of course) using Steams new game soundtrack features.
