Fictional Early British 2-6-2

Description
My first attempt at 3D modelling, inspired by M4's British 4-4-0 mod and utilizing some of his modified textures with his permission. A very serious, very major thank you to them for inspiring this mod.

This is a edit of the vanilla Borsig model modified heavily to look more like a cabless British locomotive typical of the 1860's. This 2-6-2 is a fictional design of my own creation, and any likeness to any historic model is purely by accident, but is meant to serve as an early game stand-in for a more British looking locomotive than others that are currently available.

Comes complete with aging, tinting, logo support and a reversed version.

Available: 1865-1910
Lifespan: 30 years
Top Speed: 60 kph
Weight: 42T
Power: 180kW
Tractive Effort: 60kN

@fluffyoat: It's an addon script to blender that can be found here: https://www.transportfever.net/filebase/index.php/Entry/2-Blender-Import-Export-Addon/

(The site's in german but the download link is right at the top, just above the first image in the description)

Open blender, user preferences, install the addon zip, save etc etc and then import the .msh from there. I hope that covers everything :)

Dubsy102, Just be thankful that gr1m, has taken the trouble to create these locos for TF. He has stated that these are just fictional locos and may only resemble certain British locos of the period. If you can do any better, I'm sure everyone would be happy. As the author has shown below, they do ressemble the loco here.

@Dubsy102: Let me just stress again, this is a _fictional_ locomotive. Historic accuracy was never my intent. You're criticising the mod for something it never set out to do in the first place.

That being said, the styling for both my mods has more than a passing resemblence to this: https://artuk.org/discover/artworks/manchester-sheffield-and-lincolnshire-railway-060-goods-engine-no-49-sphynx-9420 but if that's still not good enough for you then this probably isn't the mod for you anyway. ;P

@Dubsy102 This is Where My Regularly used Exuse is used This Could be an experimental But Failed For Whatever Reason Not saying that you are wrong or right just saying...
