Digital Traction have another 40% Sale on...... I just could not say no LOL
Both sat at red signal waiting to enter York station ..... Given the choice which would you prefer to be driving?
The 150. I like to drive steam but the game limitations annoy me: I can't see forward properly and sound is completely panned to one ear.
My set, with a bit of a delay as I swamped myself with NSE shots.
1) A green Class 33 leads a Darlington-Durham train on a muddy banking
2) A BR 189 with a short transfer, exhibiting my tunnel fetish
3) One of the wayside industries between Altoona and Johnstown
4) The grayness of the old NEC gives way to colors and shades during evening hours
5) Amtrak crosses a stone banking over the seaside swamps on the Pacific Surfliner
By the way, a little game of my development journey. Very optional, of course.
This was my pool, if you think I should have picked something else, let me know and why.
I like number 3 because rs11 are very similar to rsd16 running in my country, but your selection was great as usual
That's some very nice mood, Ardaeshir, like it
1) A BR blue Class 37 branches off the East Coast Main Line, leaving Alexandra Palace towards Bowes Park
2) An Alco RS-11 duo takes some goods into the woods on the Coal District
3) During early BR blue times, a Class 33 takes a string of mostly GWR wagons towards London
4) EWS 33030 with a short passenger special from Settle towards Carlisle
5) NSE 33114, the Ashford 150 with a stopping service sprinting towards Portsmouth
Caledonia Works have an October 30% off DLC Sale on till 10/10/21

Just could not resist these pair.
Similar to an earlier screenshot of mine, this scenario usually acts as a reference point for my graphics.
Oh... and just nabbed this CR812 for £0.00 YAY!!!
For a moment I thought it was TSW
TS2022 is old but not dead and at certain occasions as great graphics
Absolutely, long live the TS2022
No wonder I'm addicted to TS20xx an hour ago I was driving a Stroudley Terrier on the Stainmore Route ...............
........ and just now am sat a red signal in ths beauty, must admit I am blown away with how good this unit is.
The features and sounds are beyond anything I have ever witnessed in Train Sim, and talk about driveable it is so versatile it's unreal.
My next set. Hope you enjoy the sights
1) Class 101 approaches Exeter on the wrong main - Love the open, endless spring view
2) GE P42DC climbs up a cut on the Pacific Surfliner
3) GE P30CH at one of the Pacific Surfliner stops
4) View from a dome car is gorgeous, with a P30CH climbing to Cajon Pass eastbound
5) A secretive ID GP40PH-2B works towards Hoboken during typical Fall weather imported from the UK
Nice screenshotos triznya.andras !!!
Thank you Nacho
I feel like it's been a minute since I made a scene in TS, so here's one that I've been working on for the last few weeks. I've been experimenting with using real-world terrain data. The data I used for this scene is from roughly the same area as the Durango and Silverton's famous high-line.
Its a sunny summer's afternoon at Kingswear and 7827 'Lydham Manor' is simmering gently, as a recent arrival from Paignton disgorges its load on the other side of the platform.
A balmy evening in 1952 sees a tired old lady hauling her load across Belah viaduct.
A screen taken in a new scenario that required the reskin making first as well. D1015 on a loaded test run for a mainline outing that ultimately didn't make it. In case you can't tell the first shot is in the scenario, the second is my photo I took to record the event for real
It shows how far we still could go for weather, lighting and material simulations when we compare the two images.
I agree, I may have a few hints though, hope it helps.
Some routes come with near-realistic scenery. I only play the new PDL because reasons, but you may have some.
For a long while I was a big fan of Clear weather with Quick Drives. Gives good lights, with a few issues on the side.
For better skies, you can use the route-specific (2D) Cloudy or 3D Cloudy weather. Initially I dabbled with 3D, only to find 2D prettier. You can also go for the AP enhancement, I find it a little cartoony but still nice. (See Limeyfox above, that's AP I guess.)
Cloudy weather comes with a bit less light, so either play with the Escape menu settings, or shoot around noon, unless Summer.
You may want to shoot with the light source (Sun) behind you.
Going against this can work, the train is going to have contrast and shadow.
In Summer, noon sunshine is practically from above, which favors shots from above. I like 9am / 4pm.
Doing an Autumn run now, and the sun is fairly low even at noon (well, noon might be 1pm due to DST).
Some of it is photographing basics, others are simply the result of years of experimenting, cherry picking and looking at other artists' works.
You posted some nice screens this week, both trestle shots are great, as is the Kingswear overview and the double header.
Here is my selection for this week, a little story of seasons:
1) As the winter sun shines on a blissful North Jersey afternoon, an NJ Transit EMD F40PH runs north not long after leaving Bay Head
2) As spring arrives to Southwest England, this BR Blue-Grey Class 101 sprints towards Exeter
3) With summer in its full glory, a Class 101 in matching BR Blue colors travels through lush land near Carlisle
4) As lush turns to parched, an EMD DD35A duo takes a string of hoppers to Granite for loading
5) On a peaceful, moody Cornwall evening, a Class 08 with ballast hoppers takes the trip of struggles from Truro to Falmouth
Early morning in Sutton Coldfield and D1015 emerges from the freezing fog with a Lichfield City to Plymouth charter.
Not one of my best captures, but not bad either. A Caledonian Railway class 812 on West Lines of Scotland:
This documents my first drive of the 812 since applying CW's recent 'update'. The original version featured a unique reverser / regulator relationship. The old manual went out of its way to let us known that that's how CR locos of that vintage functioned. The update converts 812 to CW's usual reverser / regulator scheme. While I in some sense regret the switch to normalcy, I readily admit that I seldom drove the original version due to needing to relearn its unique driving characteristics each outing. In other words, I'm not displeased with the change.
The bar is high. I like this capture a lot.
Need find some synonyms for lovely mood though, it's getting boring.
Separate names with a comma.
