    That, along with doubling up and some other tricks.

    There's a mod that lets you bypass the layer cap and use (in theory) over 35,000, although I expect at that density Livery Designer (not the game) would get impossibly sluggish.

    New WIP:

    Screenshot (62).png

    This actually is an anachronism, as this particular ad livery dates to 2002, and the company itself (Betriebskrankenkasse Landesverband Ost) was merged out of business around 2009. But the bumblebee colors are really striking. At least it's not red!

    Here’s my latest creation: ES 64 U2 - 037 in BoxXpress livery.

    I learned this weekend that the Livery Editor has a maximum total layer cap for all custom liveries saved under the Livery Editor. I hit this cap with my total 40 custom liveries. After the cap has been reached, there is no possibility to add new layers/custom liveries. As an added bonus the game erases all the existing (saved) custom liveries, once the cap has been reached (at least on PS4). Luckily I had a backup of the save game files on my PSplus cloud. It was quite a huge initial shock after spending numerous hours making my custom liveries, to find out that I had a record of 0/300 custom liveries in the game.

    Do you know, if it’s possible to identify and extract single custom livery files from the TSW2/PS4 save game files, so I could transfer and store them on my PC to free-up layers in the Editor? And whether this method would allow me to restore my custom liveries from my PC back to the TSW2 save game files, when I wish to use them in the game?

    That cap must be console specific then as I’m at just over 100 custom liveries at present.
    I was under the impression the custom livery cap was 300 but maybe that’s just PC?

    Indeed, a player can have a maximum of 300 custom liveries in the game, and each livery has a cap of 300 layers. However, this is just half of the reality (at least on consoles), as there is also a maximum total number of layers that can be saved in total (not just per custom livery). In other words, a console player cannot have 300 custom liveries, which all contain the maximum of 300 layers (a total of 90.000 layers). I don't know exactly how many layers in total a console player can have in TSW2, but I had 40 custom liveries (most of which had around 150-300 layers, so around 6000 - 12000 layers in total) and I hit the maximum layer cap, after which I wasn't able to save any additional custom liveries.

    For some of my lettering I've either constructed letters from scratch or modified existing ones. Most visible on my Freightliner writing.

    Hehe, thanks...
    But as always it could be better. LD is really good tool, just practice, practice, practice.:cool::D:cool:
    When i start my jurney with LD, i was like kid in the fog ... lost :D
    I didnt know what to do and how, than after some hours it starts to be more clear and useful.
    And ohhh on the yesterday stream i was 'wydoje_cie', and as i remember you type to me that in one hour you couldn't do even /Festival.../ sign.
    Believe me if solicitr can make rust, and such details as old paint with streaks... (that is impressive xD) you are able to do many things.
    3000 leyers they propably modified LD tool to be able to do that. But as you see they need that much "space" for leyers when from under their brushes such beauties come out.
    Peace and Best Regards

    Sorry for the quick update already but I've just re-submitted all six Sherman Hill autoracks. I've added a little more weathering to them, Dulled down the KC&S logo on the KC&S yellow autorack and also adjusted the yellow paintwork on the KC&S, CN and TTX autoracks.

    They're all around the 700 layers mark give or take.

    This BR182 / ES 64 U2 009 locomotive in FN Cargo livery was spotted at the Lubeck freight yard earlier today. 103BF52E-A102-413C-8C85-A270D6AC509A.jpeg 2536959E-2CC7-4A9B-A33C-1C60CDE0C5AF.jpeg 34940CE3-AED0-4E97-8D72-E31FFD4404BB.jpeg B07E630A-C47D-421A-80A8-DC2B2EDBC6CF.jpeg

    Has the preserved collection livery thing happened? I haven't been looking at the forums for a long time.

    DA17A5D4-E912-40C7-8797-345F0BC4E10F.jpeg I had a long day at work today, and hence, I wasn’t able to spend as much time on TSW2 as I would have wanted to. Nevertheless, I made good progress and I’m pretty confident that this BR 185 class engine 185 003-4 in HVLE livery will be put into use on one of the German routes tomorrow. Can’t wait!

    I hope everone’s doing great.

    Btw. When I was watching the latest Festival of Rail video last night, I discovered that by doing the mastery challenges, it is possible to unlock additional signs and lettering, which can be used on the Livery Editor. Great news!

    There's also a mod which unlocks them, without doing the challenges or even owning the routes they're associated with.

    I assume this mod is for PC only, as this type of mods are generally not allowed on consoles (due to strict limitations set by the platform managers / Sony & Microsoft).

    I’m on PS4. Do let me know please, if this mod can also be used on consoles.

    Have you raised a ticket yet, or deleted high layer liveries?

    it worked for me when I deleted 300 layer liveries.

    ...it's definitly an 8th gen console problem. It is not related to a lack of space on the hard drive, but to resources released by the system software. Meanwhile we know that 8GB RAM has become too little to continue to be standard, be it in terms of missing train layers or drawing distance. Because I had the same experience with these error messages that appear suddenly while using the Livery Designer, I know the problem well. Since then I make sure to always save the current working savegame and overwrite older liveries to make room for new ones. So all what we can do on 8th gen consoles is to use the little available storage space as best as possible, until sometime next gen consoles are finally available.

    Yesterday I opened a new thread under the section ”Creation centre”. I attach my comment below, cause it might give you an answer to the issue, which you have in the Livery Editor (especially, if you are on a console)

    - - -

    Good evening to you all train enthusiasts.

    Have you experienced problems with the TSW2 Livery Editor - the Editor won't save your layers/livery, the Editor crashes and erases all your custom liveries. I experienced this problem last weekend, but luckily I got some help (unfortunately I can't remember the name of this kind train enthusiast), found out the reason behind this failure and was able to fix the situation. Some people on the TSW Facebook groups encouraged me to share this info also on this forum, so here goes.

    1) Each custom livery can contain a total of 300 layers.
    2) Each player can have a total of 300 saved custom liveries.
    A limit, which is not directly referred to in the game is that there is also a maximum number of total layers that one player can have in the Livery Editor. This number is not 90.000 (i.e. 300 layers per livery x 300 saved custom liveries), or at least on consoles this number is much lower. I had a total of 40 custom liveries, which all contained about 150-300 layers each on the average. With this amount of total layers (6000-12000) I hit the limit, which created a situation, where I wasn't able to save anymore layers/liveries in the game, and as an added bonus, the failure erased all my existing custom liveries (the game indicated that I had 0/300 liveries, although a minute earlier I had 40 custom liveries). I don't know, what the exact total layer cap for all custom liveries in the game is, and whether this is only applicable to PS4, or consoles, or if it applies to PC as well.

    After I had deleted a few of my custom liveries (from 40 -> to 26), the Editor started to work again and the problem hasn't emerged again.

    Nevertheless, remember to take a backup of your TSW2 save game files (either to PSplus cloud if you have it, or to external memory stick or something similar), so that you can restore your custom liveries, in case you hit the layer cap and the game erases all your custom liveries. It would be a shame to lose all the custom liveries for good, which you have been working on for several hours..

    I’m on the same boat with you. I’m currently spending more time creating new custom liveries than driving the trains. Althoug this week I’ve been driving a bit more just to get those Mastery challenge rewards, which I can use in the Livery Editor. :)

    I currently have a blockage, something prevents me from playing until I transfer the Ghostbusters logo to the BTC-3 and CTC-3 wagons to make a mini logo. Massacre, well, I can't start the route, because I want to go to the Boston Sprinter with my complete squad. Hehehe I put the chains on myself.

    My Livery Editor just crashed and erased all my custom liveries (although I had only 26 saved liveries). The sad thing is that I had not copied my game files to the PS cloud for a little while. Hence I lost my BR182 FN Cargo livery and the BR185 HVLE livery. Quite a few hours of work down the drain.

    Unfortunately there's a point where lettering gets so small it pixelates into illegibility. The best one can do is hope the blurry blob has the right shape!

    Solicitr, your BR101 BKK livery looks absolutely amazing. The differrence what one can do with the Editor on PC in comparison to consoles, is gigantic.

    Papi, I can see why you wanted to first finish the livery for all the modules, before putting this train into use. Looks amazing.

    I decided to give a small uplift to my latest custom livery, which I did for the BR185.5 (as I had to re-do it after the Editor erased it). 996B0743-CCD7-4B5B-8A26-8B450FFB8569.jpeg 3F9D468B-BF20-4D11-8271-D31B600A1B1A.jpeg E8523546-8F69-4B15-A64C-CE88894BA979.jpeg 267559AF-2243-47C2-A3CA-2ACE06628BBA.jpeg Are the yellow stripes a bit too much - what do you think?

    BR 185 003 - 4 pulling a mixed freight consist on the Köln- Aachen route. Crispy & clear winter day with snow. Thoroughly enjoyed the journey.

    I decided to go into the fictional business of liveries, and made my own TOC: GLASGOW!

    They operate a small fleet of some Class 387 Electrostars, one preserved Class 314 (314201) and a couple of "modified" BR 143s from Germany, primarily for depot movements.

    The 387: 2cc2e673-6d63-4d51-ae31-29364f54c4d8.jpeg ad1ec8df-cd74-4fc3-8bf1-89fe62385c2a.jpeg 0f42c8bb-647d-45f2-9728-e5afb7ff098f.jpeg 9692dfee-9a34-4932-b449-f159222a1c23.jpeg 79fdbaaf-176c-4b92-a0a2-9e472890fa75.jpeg

    Inspired by a Bluebonnet F7 livery someone uploaded recently, I decided to make a boxcar to go with it so it's not just hauling Clinchfield stuff.

    Unfortunately, the Livery Editor logo pack does not include any ATSF decals. Thus, I spent many hours doing the lettering of the logos and that darn cursive. I also tried to put a lot of fine detail into the weathering. All in all, it took 677 layers. I think it turned out alright, for what it's worth.

    This is the reference photo I used. It is a very different type of boxcar obviously but I think it served as good inspiration.

    Maybe I'll get around to doing the refrigerator too to make it a little more authentic but that's all the effort I can muster for now.

    Cheers

    Inspired by the livery on the Mk1 coaches used on the West Somerset Railway and by DMUs I've seen on other heritage railways, here's my custom Class 101 livery, which I hope to bale able to use on other routes other than LOTGW. Made on PS4. PSX_20220130_110149.jpg PSX_20220130_110337.jpg
