We are all dummies, when we first start out on a new venture. There is an awful lot to learn to be able to create assets for Trainz. There are also a lot of wonderful tutorials out there (see my links-page), but not always a step-by-step guide that will help a total newbie, who finds it hard to get started. When I did not find one for my project, I set out to make one (once I learned how to do what I needed to do).
As I climb the steep path of learning to create for Trainz, there will probably be more of these.
HOW TO MAKE A SOUND FILE (CCP for TRS2006) No prior knowledge of any kind required.
HOW TO MAKE A REGION FILE (and how to use it) (CCP for TRS2006) No prior knowledge of any kind required.
HOW TO SIGNAL AHEAD OF A LIFT BRIDGE (Surveyor for TRS2006) No prior knowledge of any kind required.
ANOTHER WAY TO SIGNAL DIAMOND CROSSINGS (Surveyor for TRS2006) Some knowledge of triggers and rules required (or read above tutorial first).
Gmax : 1) HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE HOUSE (and get it into Trainz) (Gmax v.1.2) (TRS2006, will work for 2004 as well) No prior knowledge of any kind required.
2) MORE TOOLS, POLYGONS, ROOF. (how to make a nicer house) Building on the previous lesson.
