Bombardier BiLevels now available on DLS

Posted by PerRock (Administrator) at 14 Feb 2014, 18:57. 0 comments

Over the next few weeks I'll be uploading my Bombardier BiLevels to the DLS. The process will be a bit slow as I will be updating the older releases to be more in line with my more recent releases. The first batch are currently being upload and will show up on the DLS in a few days; They are:

  • Go Transit Can-Car BiLevels
  • South Bay Commuter Express BBLs
  • Tri-Rail BBLs

The Metrolink ones (all 3 different types) will probably be next after that, there are some minor adjustments to be made on them.
I've also made some new unreleased ones that will be uploaded around the same time (maybe later today!) They are Montreal's AMT and NCTD's Coaster. When applicable I will also be uploading an F59PHI with matching colors (AMT, Metrolink, etc)

The rest of the BBLs all need some adjustments and will be rolled out when they are complete here is the list in no particular order:

  • Amtrak California (fictional)
  • Amtrak Cascades (fictional)
  • Amtrak Surfliner (fictional)
  • Sounder
  • Rail Runner
  • Frontrunner

Pictures of the new BBLS, as mentioned earlier, there is still some tweaking to do:

Trainz: A New Era

Posted by PerRock (Administrator) at 14 Nov 2013, 00:58. One comment

N3V has opened up their Kickstarter campaign to support the next version of Trainz: A New Era (TANE or T2). They tease lots of new features & advancements, the biggest being a whole new game engine.

For those who don't know how Kickstarter works, basically you pledge to support a certain amount, then if N3V reaches their pledge goal you will be charged for the amount you pledged. Different amount of money pledged can earn you different levels of rewards ranging for $5 to $8000 (AUD). Here are some stuff explaining more.

For those wishing to be apart of our second AMTZ Live! event please RSVP. We will have an open discussion Skype call this Saturday evening (exact time TBD). It'll probably be around 8pm Eastern, I also hold the right to move the call back to Sunday. Exact times will be posted on Friday.

In order to participate you need to add me as a friend on Skype (click the little Skype icon in my profile here). When you send your friend request please make sure you mention your username here on AMTZ as well as telling me you wish to RSVP for the call. You do not need to be present for the whole call, come and drop in for a little while. The call may last for a few hours, depending on discussion.

Content Upgrade Program

Posted by PerRock (Administrator) at 22 Jun 2013, 06:01. 0 comments

Here are some more details on our Content Upgrade Program. We plan on filtering through all of our currently available content to ensure that it is error (and in most cases warning) free in Trainz 2012 SP1. When updated content is released they will get a special TRS2012 download button (it's green). The updated content will replace any currently installed content, using the KUID2 system, so no work on your end.

The following is a list of known items that need to be updated. This list is in no way a complete list, nor a release order list. Just simply a list of items we know have issues. We will continue to update the list as items are discovered and released.

Problematic Content:
Phase IV Viewliner
Phase IVb 1700 series Dining Car

Updated Content
Phase III Amfleet (jefff944 beta)
Phase IVb Amfleet (2nd car included!)
Phase IVb 1700 series Baggage
Phase IV 1700 series Baggage (jefff944 beta)
Phase IV High 1700 series Baggage (jefff944 beta)
Phase III 1800 series Baggage (jefff944 beta)
Phase IVb Viewliner
