Welcome to my Trainz corner of the Internet. First a bit of my history
I'm currently discovering the latest version of trainz from Auran, TS2009
If you have questions about this or any other version of trainz, great
places to visit are the Trainz Discussion Forums
There you will find some of the friendliest people on the web, freely
giving of their time to help and support their fellow Trainzers.
One of the most satisfying aspects of Trainz is the ability to create
your own world and everything in it. The game comes with many objects
built-in and to those who have registered, thousands more are freely
available at the Download
Station. This is place were creators from around the world upload
objects they have made which can then be downloaded by the rest of the
Trainz community and used in their own routes.
Another way to get more objects is to build your own. Using 3D modeling
programs like GMax and
ordinary users can create objects that they can use in the game. GMax
was the little brother of the professional 3D creation program 3ds Max.
Even though official support for GMax was stopped in 2005, it is still
from the support site in the above link. You can also get GMax
from Auran . While there, don't forget to pick up the Content
Creation Pack which you need to export your newly created objects
into a format that trainz can use. Another piece of software you'll
need is an image editor to create and
manipulate the texture files you will use to cover your objects.
One place you should definitely visit if you're new to creating is the Learning Centre.
There you will find many tutorials to help you get started making your
To see some of the objects that I've created, have a look in Martinz
