Now that I’ve got the track rules working, it’s time to have proper overhead tram wires. Most trams around the world are just a single overhead wire, so here it is.

RailWorks Tram Test 1

Why are there less than 5 known existing tram mods for Railworks? A couple aren’t even released. Maybe it’s because it’s so confusing to mod the game…

Well I’m hoping to get some sort of base working, maybe release it as a pack for others to create content with it. First, I’m trying to make a track with a small curve radius, attempting to mimic an existing track (Oxford Concrete Clean), though I couldn’t get anything to appear in the editor, even just a track rule. In this video, I ended up modifying the track rule for ‘MainLine’, but modifying existing game files is way too sloppy.

UPDATE: I got custom track rules working.

TTC Streetcar Papercraft

Here’s a papercraft of a TTC streetcar (tram) that was given when visiting the TTC bus garage during Doors Open Toronto. Now the instructions are really vague… I had a hard time building this. For example, the trolley pull just says ‘Join parts B and C‘: Does the slit face the front or the rear? Which way do I angle the trolley pole? I ended up using a little tape to keep it from falling in either direction.

Anyway it looks alright. I want to make some others, like these cool Team Fortress 2 ones. Maybe one day I’ll design my own.

It was too big to scan… but also the design is a bit lame anyway.
