Class 378

Post by i play MSB all day »

Im not usually one to suggest things on here

But, if the class 378 is made repaintable (if that is possible) many variants could be impersonated.

EG.
Several variants of class 378 gx,gwr, ThameslInk, C2C, Great northern, Southern, Southeastern
Class 375 southeastern
Class 377 Southern and southeastern
New LO livery and 5 car new variant advert livery.

Im not saying the devs should make these im saying they should make the train repaintable so that we have the option to do this.

If there was a repaintable version of the Class 378, then I'd paint it in RanstadRail blue and white livery.
But for fictional two-car diesel version, then I'd paint that in NS Sprinter livery (but we already have the repaintable Class 230).

I would have made a West Midlands Trains repaint for the 2 car 378 based on the class 172s

Correct. I am making some small improvements to trains in the "London.000" package to go along with the 1992 stock release, and these repaintable 378's will be part of that.
The repaint files are being provided here so you can start making your repaints a bit early ;)

It's not just a texture file... The repaintable trains also need separate scripts and seperate exterior object files, which are coded to use the new texture files, instead of the standard set of colors (mostly being single-color 16x16 pixel files, which color specific area's of the exterior) the non-repaintable versions use.
