    here you can discuss what you want to use your thomas the tank engine train simulator/tainz add-ons for, (I.E I want to make films with my MSTS ones) or tell us which ones you've got and/or made yourself.

    i have for train sim:

    DOWNLOADED:

    Thomas

    James

    Toby

    Duck

    Oliver

    Donald and Douglas

    MADE:

    Gordon (Flying scotsman reskin)

    Henry (Pendennis Castle reskin)

    Daisy (KIHA 31 reskin)

    Annie and clarabel (Resemble the RWS annie and clarabel much more than the TV series ones)

    I plan to make my own episodes with my train simulator stuff.

    I downloaded donald and douglas from either train-sim.com or uktrainsim. as for daisy, I haven't uploaded the model, but really all you have to do is reskin the KIHA 31.

    I tired to download Thomas for trainz railroad simulator 2004, as well as his branch line, from magandy.net. But every time I tried to play the branch line, the game kept closing down.

    I can remember when i had trainz as well. i had:

    Thomas

    Edward

    Henry

    gordon

    percy

    james

    toby

    emily

    duck

    bill&ben

    Donal' & Douggie

    Scruffey

    trucks

    oliver

    rheneas and the other NG engines.

    As for you Alexanderprice6, I can remember that happening as well When I had TRS2004, so I made my own thomas' branch using the route editor. As well as that, Originally, When I got thomas for the first time, HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY WHEELS! I was'nt allowed to drive him cos the computer always crashed! (I think That the reason is that i originally Got Oliver that needs parts from thomas in order to work before I got thomas.) When I reinstalled the program, I re-got thomas and he had all 6 wheels and he worked just fine!

    All U have to do is go to C:\Program files\Microsoft games\train simulator\samples and find the picture file "Kiha31colour" (Not Kiha31acolour) and do it up like daisy. then go to C:\Program files\microsoft games\train simulator\utils and find the program "Makeacewin". Open it and where it says "Input file" find the bitmap "Kiha31colour". then go to output file and find C:\Program files\microsoft games\train simulator\trains\trainset\KIHA31\Kiha31colour.ace then press the convert button. It should have changed your KIHA 31 loco into daisy!

    Does that mean I have to write over the file? And I can` t figure this all out. Can you give me a pic?
