Coming Soon: Springfield Line Visuals Update

Coming soon to a Train Sim near you: a big visuals overhaul of the Springfield Line route!

This will apply some of the new tricks and models I've collected over the past years to an old favorite, the Springfield Line (version 3.0 for those who remember its beginnings). The update will be free of charge but exact details about the how & when are yet to be determined.

What will be included:

  • much better looking lineside 3D trees courtesy of Wayne Campbell
  • environment visuals (longer view distances, new skybox with better cloud textures, improved lighting and now also with moon phases)
  • weather visuals
  • my new GP9 model
  • and more!
Stay tuned for more!

And meanwhile, to whet your appetite:

Here's my contribution, to replace the ALCos that got lost on the Springfield Line some years ago:
