Hi all

does anyone know if the FEF-3 has been repainted into RWA colours i use these wonderful engines quite a bit on the rwa route and it would be nice if they fitted in with some of the other stock

Glad you like the FEF-3 :D

The texturing of this model is very complicated, so I wouldn't recommend doing anything other than modifying the "UNION PACIFIC" and "U.P." on the tender (the lettering is in the alpha channel of UP484UnionPacific.TgPxDx). However, you'd still have "Union Pacific" on the shield on the front of the smokebox and that's not something you can change, because it's rendered in 3D (you have to go up close to it to appreciate that detail).

Cheers,

Mike

Yep, very easy to do - just edit UP484UnionPacific.TgPxDx.

I like the sound of that might give it a go. Not to worried about the shield could just say that its a tribute to U.P.

Yes, it's just text in white in the Alpha channel.

Where did you change the name, in the RBG channel or the Alpha channel? You have to leave the RGB untouched (that just defines the colour of the lettering) but modify the lettering (white lettering on a pure black background) in the Alpha channel.

Can you post a screenshot?

Send me the files you changed, in a pm, and I'll see if I can explain what's wrong.

!*cheers*!

OK, I think I know what the problem is. In the version of UP484UnionPacific.TgPcDx for the Overland liveries, I didn't fill the entire RGB uniformly with the colour (silver or yellow) of the lettering. It's actually got the lettering in the right colour, in the RGB too, on a black background. That's why, when you change the lettering in the alpha channel, you see a mixture of black and yellow through that mask. All you need to do is to fill the whole of the RGB with the letter colour. That's how I did it in the default version.

With a little bit of work here and there, it could show as a dirty tender **!!bang!!**
