Canadian Pacific Railway's Mountain
Subdivision: Field to Revelstoke
British Columbia, Canada 2010 (TS 12)
MBC 2010 was originally created in Trainz 2010. Assets for vegetation were
selected to achieve a prototypical look in Trainz 2012 (TS 12).
MBC 2010 represents the Canadian Pacific Railway's Mountain Subdivision
in the year 2010. Other eras to follow.
When directly ported into TS 12 the look of vegetation is drastically changed.
Grass and some trees show a “billboard effect” which spoils the appearance of
the scenery. Some tree are automatically substituted for trees which do not look
Recently I have been converting the route to TS 12 using some of the newer
vegetation developed by JVC. The down side is that it is payware (MBC 2010 in
Trainz 2010 was done with all freely available assets). The upside is that it looks
great. Jankvis uses a new technique called “turn-to-camera” which allows him to
make great looking stuff with out the billboard effect and which should perform
well, as it is of poly count.
What follow is a series of pictures being taken as the route undergoes a change
in scenery in TS 12.
