Looks real nice Kyle. Though not a UP fan they are done very nicely. Nice textures and a nice cab as well.

Ok, you guys, this isn't a plane forum but a train forum. tongue.gif

Leave Dan alone to work on trains where he belongs.!!!!!!!! wink.gif

Why not??? Thatís what the real thing does, and I thought everyone around here wanted things to be as close to the real thing as possible. Jeez, you all are a bunch of two faced liars... laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

He felt a bit embarassed I think for not kowing where it was, I didn't either but the ground hog with us knew how it worked.
#8139, I think.....thought it was one of the flared SD70s until I nearly hit my head on the flare.

Don't ya hate that, sounds like things are doing well for you. Glad to hear you're having fun. And always remember to duck, I hit me head once stepping down out of the cab, into that little hall way out of the engine, my conductor thought it was funny because I wacked it on the little thing that said "watch you step," more like watch you head, god that hurt.

The only thing I have to really watch my head on is the AC in some of the units....but when I duck to get out the cab doors the stupid RCO box likes to beep and in a few cases I have not stood up fast enough and it has brought the engine to a halt as the tilt timed out.

This job is cool, not what I thought it was going to be like. Some ways it is better and others not. I do like the fact that I am getting more time off and sleep than I did in my previous job. smile.gif

Well, since I'm still waiting for my call to go, I guess I'll let you know that Kyle is still waiting for the sounds from Dan, then I will probably get them real quick for a check up, then as far as I know, they will be done.

You know patience is a virtue and also gets you a better product in the end. You cannot imagine how much work Dan has piled on his desk. I am sure he is working as quick as he can, but remember he does this for 3dtrains and others as well, so give the guy a break here. You will get your engines in due time.

Sounds are not a simple matter of going out and recording a sound and throwing it into the game, nor is lighting nor physics. They all have to come together and then be checked yet to be ready for dissemination. Especially if they are payware. A company's reputation is on the line if they aren't right, etc.

So, I think you should throw on a Gun's N' Roses album and have "Patience"! wink.gif

I'm not worried about the delay of the sounds, I'm more worried about Dan! biggrin.gif
I hope he remembers to eat, and that he hasn't passed out in front of his pc from famine and fatigue! ohmy.gif

Hiya! I'm here and working as fast as I can to get the audio completed for Kyle. The delay has stemmed from my having recently started a new job. I forgot how tired you can get after working a 12 hour shift. Anyhow, I'm done with prime mover audio and have moved on to the smaller details, like adequate horns, air sounds (which seem to be pretty popular with other sets), and other 'new' techniques I promised Kyle. I love the 16-710G3 and wanted to give you all a worthy package.

Just to wet your appetites:

A clip of the SD90s at idle
The clip is in mp3 format, so remember, some quality was lost from what you'll actually hear. wink.gif
