LMS Expansion Pack

Description
In 1923, the LMS was formed out of the constituent companies of the London, Midland and Scottish region. This pack contains 8 locomotives from 1923 to 1930, ranging from mixed traffic to express passenger. There are too many to list all the stats of here, but you can find out the fun way when they appear in your game!

All models include:
- Customised animation
- Low impact textures
- Shared tender mesh for optimisation
- Shared wheel meshes for optimisation
- 3 custom whistles: peep, poop and toot.
- Cab detail. Water gauges, regulator and reverser lever represented.
- Reversed tank engine models for suburban workings
- Custom emitters on 'Fury'


Engines included:

- 4-4-0 4P 'Compound':
This was a design first created for the Midland railway in 1904 and resumed by the LMS in 1923. The model depicted is in LMS livery but available from 1904. Slightly anachronistic but you can't win them all.

- 4-4-0 2P:
This design was intended to be an improvement on a small 4-4-0 Midland design. While it did improve on the original, it still wasn't up to scratch with its contemporaries.

- 2-6-0 'Crab':
A mixed traffic engine, Mogul could pull coaches, trucks or anything quite happily. Its odd motion and inclined cylinders earned it the nickname.

- 4-6-0 'Royal Scot':
The cream of the crop, rise to the top, the Royal Scot, the best of the lot. This was the LMS answer to Gresley's A1/3 design.

- 4-6-0 'Patriot':
A smaller scot. Bit less powerful, bit less speedy. Very stylish however with smoke deflectors and clean lines

- 4-6-0 'Fury':
A one off experimental high pressure engine. In reality it didn't save on fuel or really do a whole lot, but I liked the design of the engine and it was very powerful in its time. Sadly it killed a guy so they got rid of it.

- 4-6-4 'Hughes Tank':
A gigantonormous tank engine for short and speedy passenger work and sometimes freight work. This 4 cylinder behemoth was one of the largest tank engines built for UK railways at nearly 50ft long!

- 2-6-4 'Suburban Tank':
A smaller and more efficient version of the Hugh-mungus 4-6-4 tank. This engine proved to have much advancements when pulling suburban services, and went on to inspire the Riddles, Fairburn and Ivatt tank locomotives.

@Commander Scott. @SteveM4 I also have issues with sound not playing on Some vehicles in this pack. I know I've had intermittent issues with the Black 5/8Fs and Hughes Tank, in a previous world save I had, but they did mostly work.

But at the moment. I can confirm the Patriot and Royal Scot have no Audio on my latest World.

Some filesystems and operating systems are case sensitive. It is recommended that lower case is used for all TF mod filenames to avoid crashes.

For example vehicle/train/LMS_2p.mdl references vehicle/train/LMS_Royal_scot_lod_0_coalcar.grp but the actual filename is vehicle/train/LMS_Royal_Scot_lod_0_coalcar.grp

Hi does anyone else have the problem of the sound files not playing, and if there is a way to fix it can anyone help.

Cheers Gr1m, criticism taken and (hopefully) applied. I did initially plan on this being one of my last mods but after playing with these I simply can't just leave the LMS stuff finished at 1930. I have couple more that I plan to release with more intricate model and texture work. After that I intend to update and maintain my other releases by applying my new methods to old mods (a la Crampton).

Thanks once again :)

It's good to see you're doing more and more texture work and proper uvw remapping - it's a tedious process, but it gets easier the more you do it. A fair few of your earlier engines could probably do with a second pass on that front, but these look nice. As a bit of constructive criticism the textures are still a bit flat, so maybe look at adding a bit more noise rather than just flat colours?

Your skills have come a long way, for sure, I just want to try and provide some constructive feedback that will hopefully elevate your work further in future. Keep it up! ^.^

Time for me to produce new mods is sadly not a luxury I have any more. I will still plop the odd thing on the workshop, but I will mostly be maintaining and updating my existing stock, so keep checking out my entries to see if any get updated.

Still, fantastic work from you my friend. Adds alot more variety since there isn't alot of Tank/Medium sized engines from the UK lines. Keep up the good work <3
