LNER A1/A3/A4 Pacific 4-6-2 Expansion

Description
This mod does the following:
-Adds seven (7!) new trains to the game - an A1 Pacific, and four variations of the A3 Pacific - With and without the German-style smoke deflectors, as well as with either the LNER Corridor style tender, or the more common GNR style tender. These new vehicles all come with aging, tinting, reversed versions, placeable rail assets, logo support, as well as my style of smoke emitters rather than the vanilla grey. The stats are also slightly tweaked.
*UPDATE: I've also now added two version of the A4 Pacific - both using the A3 model's corridor tender, with limited and unlimited speed versions.*
-Adds the Flying Scotsman's second tender/canteen as a carriage with no capacity, like a brake van or one of my other canteens. Basically it just adds weight to the train for no benefit buuuuuuuuuuuut on the other hand it looks cool, so.
*UPDATE: I've also added a version in the A4 blue colourscheme.*
-Fixes a few minor texture issues with the original material and skin - so the vanilla Flying Scotsman engine will now have wheel hubs that tint, and tinting will be slightly less washed out ie black will actually tint to black now instead of grey. (While I didn't want this mod to mess with the original train too much, I consider these two minor changes to be QOL improvements since they bug the hell out of me >.>)
*UPDATE: The A4's material file has been tweaked slightly so that it tints similarly to the A3 now, creating tinting consistency between the A1, A3 and A4 locomotives included in this pack.*

NOTE: Also please note that the vanilla A4's animations are broken by default. It is highly, highly recommended that you use killakanz's 'LNER A4 Fixed animations mod' in conjunction with this file, which is why I've listed it as required.

How about doing the later variants of both A3 & A4 in BR lined green livery with BR logos? Many people would appreciate this.

@tomtalk24: Yeah, I went back and forth on removing the name plaque, but it was like....4am when I updated the A4 model to the current form before I realized. You're right in that I should go back and remove it for consistancy, since I did that with the A1/A3.

You kept the name and plaque on the A4. Looks odd on the Silver Link and Silver Fox.

Nice work though.

did he inspire you then?

oh wait i remember, he inspired you from the 4-4-0 mod

@power man: Yeah, he did. I use it all the time!

didn't stevem4 already modify the A4 with streamlining?

great mod though

UPDATE: Minor mesh changes and fixes. Slight alterations to the gloss textures to diffuse the shine a little, as well as better/more consistant aging. I've also added a new version of the A4 that has the original wheel-coverings. Images of all the included vehicles are now added above as well.

Did you use a 3d model to make the mod?

@Captainamtrak456: I'll do some research and look into it. Shouldn't be too hard. :)
