    If you have questions after seeing the new livery designer, this is a good place to ask them.

    Get more details on what's included in the Livery Designer here and come up with a way to make your train your own.

    68E8D128-FDC9-4C4E-B0A8-659029D8455B.jpeg I am definitely not going to re-create this Guilford livery (Whistles).
    Actually, I am way excited to attempt to...not do that.

    Why do I have an urge to do a rude livery? Rude liveried train going into a tunnel and all that.

    It really did not occur to me that I could make liveries of trains on my local railroad. Very very enthusiastic about trying!

    Well I can't wait until tomorrow to try this puppy out. But so far I've ony see the locos getting painted and not a single image of the rolling stocks (other than the EMU trainset) getting painted. And yes, I'm talking about the US wagons.

    If your worried we won’t be able to customize the USA freight wagons we will be able too, even though we haven’t seen it. Graffiti those things up!

    My worry isn't about if we can paint them. My question is, are we gonna paint them individually, or as a consist like the EMUs?

    I see! That’s a good question. I would assume we would be able to pick the type of wagon we wish to edit and it would randomly put it on some of the wagons in the route. That way if you had 3 different liveries for one wagon, it would randomly place those 3 on wagons throughout the route. I do recall them a referring to this in one of the Q&As but can’t remember the exact answer. I bet we will get a real answer from Mr.Protagonist as it’s a good question!

    I've read and watch everything available, so please correct me if I'm wrong in saying, I was so excited in the Livery Designer element of TSW 2 that I was already planning a total redesign of all the UK diesel's i.e. class 31, class 45 etc. and run them on West Somerset add-on, as an avid model railway enthusiast I model in the 1960's and the switch between steam to diesel, but am I correct in saying there will be no logo's available for example the BR logo in any form? 118215739_310875266826179_3520095848695039835_n.jpg

    DTG Protagonist just out of curiosity, re: the FAQ about custom images being added to the livery designer, is that a definitive "no," or is that an "officially, no, but some enterprising individuals may find a way"?

    There are no logos included in the livery designer, and you can't design liveries on preserved content like the Class 31 or 45.

    I've not seen anything saying there are limited loco's that you can customise, now I'm confused, I've read "In Train Sim World 2 you can create custom liveries for your locomotives" I hope this will be the case and I hope this will be possible as route add-ons become available.

    With this new feature, DTG should totally make a contest out of it. Also, if we get an editor, maybe a group could finally get some ATSF or BNSF diesels in the game. BNSF/ATSF SD40-2s and GP38-2s would look awesome.

    They've confirmed we won't be getting an editor, at least not to be released for casual players due to licensing issues.

    A BNSF Warbonnet AC4400 would look pretty cool.

    Place a shape over the railings, then set the bottom projection slider to the left until it only covers the railing. Then set the top projection slider to the right so that it covers all of tge railing.

    Is it me or is there no way to accurately set the paint colour? I pain one loco in a nice colour, then have to select colours for the other locos.. But there is no way to ensure you select the exact same colour. Another gripe is the inability to actually type text. It's terrible to have to select each and every letter one by one. Sorry if this is the wrong thread for this.

    As mentioned above, hex codes are coming at some point in the near future. A work around for now though is:

    1) Create a layer
    2) Select a square shape
    3) Place square on side of loco/carriage
    4) Stretch the square until it covers the whole of one side of the carriage*
    5) Set the colour**
    6) Press options and set both projection settings to 100%, which will replicate that layer on both sides of the car, ensuring consistent colour
    7) Copy that layer to ever other loco/carriage in the consist

    *You can change the camera angle to see when the square covers the entire side of the loco/carriage.
    **You cannot go back and change the colour without having to redo the whole process and delete the previous layers so choose wisely

    The whole train could look like one, maybe with eyes to remove any offence.
