Big Update: Woodchip Gondolas Pack

Unread postby GreatNortherner » Sat Apr 30, 2011 9:04 am

Hi,

Continuing the update program of my older rolling stock, the woodchip gondolas now received the same treatment as the PS-1 boxcar ealier this week.
New to this model are a new main texture with improvements to the general appearance and weathering, new trucks with rotating bearing caps, new couplers with connecting air hoses, and more minor improvements to the shape file. The cars' physics have been updated too. Also, three new Milwaukee Road cars have been added to the pack.

All existing customers can get this update for free, please simply download and install the new package file from the download I sent you after your purchase. Please email me if you would like me to send you the download link again.

Hope you like the new look of the Gunderson woodchip car.

Michael

Hi,

No it does not, you might get missing files when you transfer the GeoPcDx files.
HOWEVER: the RWA woodchip gondola is for 95% already the updated model with new trucks, better texture and physics, and it has Dick's cool couplers.

Cheers,
Michael

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I have a request. Could you make a Hi version of this model? FMC/Gunderson made one for the SP (and I suspect others) in the 70's.
