So, here are a few more little objects to add to my growing collection 🙂
The first four of these are based upon stock in the NNR goods train.

Public domain, although not a replacement for anything this time!
I’m very pleased to announce the release of TrackGen v1.4 (Those following the BVE Worldwide forums will have seen most of this in the v1.3 Alpha series)
This adds the following:
- Platform generation added.
- Fence generation for platforms added.
- Texture selection available for main textures.
- TrackGen will now convert input images to your selected format.
With several new items added to the site recently, I’ve decided it’s time to write a short-ish piece about the history of this site, the Plymouth Route, and why things have gone the way they’ve gone!
As always, development is ongoing, and I’ll also try and explain some of the reasoning behind the current developmental direction.
So, I’m incredibly pleased to announce that BVE Cornwall is the new ‘official’ home of the Somerset & Dorset route by Richard Scott.
Way back in 2001, this was one of BVE2’s crown jewels, and it’s now available again for all to enjoy!
I’ve repaired all the errors for OpenBVE, and reposted it here:
So, readers of the BVE Worldwide & BVE Terminus forums will have seen this all before, but I’ve decided it’s good to post it on the blog too 🙂
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a considerable amount of work on TrackGen, to implement Platform generation as a replacement for a utility that has recently been withdrawn from the community.
I’m pleased to announce that as of v1.3 Alpha 6, Platform generation is now included.
At present, no fences are generated, but otherwise any objects generated from this utility should be 100% compatible with any from the withdrawn utility.
Texture picking for all main components (Ballast, sleepers, embankment & platforms) has been implemented, although you should be aware that the embankment texture will be being modified shortly, and that development is ongoing in this regard.
