[VEHICLE][WIP] Brown Streak Passanger Train (From GTA:SA)



  • So. Since there's not many train mods yet, I thought I'll try expanding that catergory.
    (Even though I said I'm done with trains lmao)

    Some of you might remember the "Brown Streak" (puntastic, huh) railroad company from Grand Theft Auto San Andreas back from 2004. I for one was sort of disappointed to see that it didn't make it over to V as the resident passanger company. Not nescessarily because of the name, but now V doesn't have any passanger trains at all.

    So one day I decided to completely recreate the model of the train from scratch, along with the textures, and here is the result.

    I present to you -

    The Next-Gen Brown Streak!

    It is very much WIP, and as of now I have no idea when it will be released. I'm posting here to inform the masses that it exists and get some feedback.

    What it does have:

    • Somewhat working collision
    • Fully fledged interior
    • Correct driver position (AI driver will have his hand on the controls)
    • Exterior is mostly UV-Mapped, so it will be easy to create skins with a provided tempelate

    What it doesn't have:

    • A matching coach car (It is modelled and textured already, I just didn't port it into GTA yet)
    • Breakable glass
    • Dirt mapping
    • It is still currently a simple replace, not an add-on
    • LODs
    • Lights similar to the Bombadier Traxx DB BR 145 train mod

    So yes, there is still a long way to go here before this is releaseworthy. Currently I'm trying to fix some problems with the glass being opaque at random intervals, so that might take a while.

    I'll also need some help with some of the features if I want to implement them, so if someone would be so generous as to help me out, I'd appriciate it.

    Until then, have some more smaller screenshots.

  • Small edit:

    Here's a screencap of the re-modeled coach aswell: (The wheels will be added from the default V trains)
