    Duncan.. trust me, people will buy it. If your tamper is any indication of quality, then people WILL buy it.

    Also, this, very embryonic, MTU HST... but I'm aiming to include a lot of extra detail progressively...

    Glad you're enjoying this 3D modelling lark now you've gotten your teeth into it, it's very rewarding but hellish time consuming, I miss doing battle with Blender and ultimately winning but I just don't have the free time anymore.

    Keep at it Duncan I expect to be playing GST Rail Sim before long. :D:D

    On the contrary, whilst I agree in part, at least all of Dunkrez's work postings are more or less in one place...

    If I had any criticism, then it's the thread title...

    Well, this thread did start out as a drains up on what it takes to make TS run and look great... and with over 40,000 views, I'm pretty sure it's one of the most viewed TS forum threads which is fantastic. Makes sense to keep all of my experimentation and development posts in one thread, However, please do feel free to follow me on Facebook or Youtube:

    I've got quite a lot in the pipeline; An MPV, HST and class 47 that you might already be aware of. Then there's periodic tamper updates to follow (quite keen to cover more of these machines). There is more, but I'll tease or announce as appropriate :)

    Thanks for your support guys, without it there would be no way that Gold Star would gain any traction. Also, if you haven't already picked the tamper up... get it today! This project feeds into everything else that I've got on the stove simmering away.

    Thank you again,

    Dunc :cool:

    Has anybody experienced these problems?

    I bought the Tamper, but three of the four QDs are void. Only DR3016 Forwards works.

    Also the tamper lowers, but doesn't tamp and the VDU screens in the operator's position are blank.

    I put in a support request to ATS six days ago, but no response yet from Gold Star.

    I'm here, just finishing up the next tamper update. Even though there are no images on the quick drives, they should work all the same. I can correct the missing forwards driving one, but the wagon first are impossible to do anything with.

    To tamp, lower the tamping bogie, release the brakes, gear position 1, accelerator notch 1... when you reach about 0.4 miles an hour you can press c to begin tamping and shift+c to stop.

    Hope this helps, please let me know how you get on. Thank you!

    I can now get the tamping action to start and the VDUs to display. Thank you.

    I don't understand why the QD images are blank. Surely all they require is a suitable image?

    If there's something deeper then I suggest you add QD presentation and selection to the manual.

    Just for a few more days Eric... It's about to get a substantial update, and will return to the normal price when that drops.

    I'm no AP but damn, I'm determined to work my arse off to get close :)
