Did you put the proper GeoPcDx files in there? I know they work because I have them.

Here is the path where these guys ought to be.

They should all have HS-4bay-CN1.GeoPcDx in the folder.

I suspect you probably need the default one for these to show up.

Hi,

If in doubt, try copying ALL of the files from the original models from me into the repaints' folders, but without overwriting anything. Maybe more files than the GeoPcDx have been left out.

EDIT: And yes, like Buzz just said, most likely the original models from my website need to be installed too. Depends on how the repaints were set up, but it's worth a try.

Cheers

I had the same issue a while back but I moved on to other assets since I was unable to successfully resolve this problem. I'll get pics of my folders tonight if this is still under investigation.

Reading the bin file that is the issue. You need to D/L at least the CN one.

I found my thread from Feb, I assume this is still my set up and it looks like I have the CP downloaded but not installed.

They are in assets>greatnortherner>hoppers>railvehicles>freight>hscylindrical

I have the following variations installed:
ALNX
ALPX
ATSF-ms
CN-ms
CNWX-4
CPWX
GN-ms
SKPX-1
SKPX-2
plus the Shared and Default folders

the only ones that show up in game are the CN-ms, GN-ms, and ATSF-ms

Here's another idea: those hopper cars got updated at least a couple of times. It is possible that the repaint is based on a newer version than you have currently installed, possibly causing incompatibilities. This is just a guess, but maybe you can try redownloading/reinstalling all of the cyl.hopper base models from my website and see if that helps.
