Hi gents, despite many attempts, I cannot get this loco and stock to work. I get the following message every time I try to run it.  Can't add car DEE__BOB_SR_21C152 ( uid 2000000 ) to world .
Can any of you kind chaps tell me what I am doing wrong, or explain how to get it to work. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.
Many thanks in anticipation ,

Hi Len,
Was that error message preceded by another ?

Where does that loco come from?  I don't have in my archives and am not able to find it in the UKTS library !

Cheers,
Ged

EDIT : OK - I've found it - in the TSSH library !!  Will have a look at it Smile
EDIT 2 : I can't get it to run in MSTS either Sad I wonder if it's only meant for Open Rails, in which it loads OK? There's no readme

Hi Len,
Sorry to say that I've tried all I know to get this loco to run in MSTS, but without success Sad

The .eng file is functionally identical to that of Danny's 34062 from his South East route.  Most of the texture files are the same as those used in that loco - there are 5 which have different sizes/format; I've replaced these with the 34062 versions without any luck.  There are also 4 textures which are unique to 21C152, but replacing them with renamed similar files didn't help!  Also, the loco is not too large for MSTS to handle - at 11859 polys, it's only 100 polys more than 34062 and quite a bit less than 70004, which is also from the South East route.

I think we need help from someone who knows about shape files because I feel that is where the problem could lie.  Open Rails successfully runs 21C152, without any pertinent warnings in the log.

Cheers,
Ged

EDIT : Just found Danny's thread (https://tsforum.forumotion.net/t982-danny-s-models) - Sorry, Len, but Lord Dowding is only for Open Rails!!  It seems strange (to me!) that locos using more polys run OK in MSTS, but not this one - maybe it's how the polys are arranged!
