Summary

Options on replacing graphics of vanilla locomotive, nuclear-powered locomotive, armoured locomotives, or any mix of above, with nostalgic graphics used till 0.12.

Motivation

As per request of player DTSephiroth, I have digged out the sprite sheets of the old game 0.12.
Although the request was to apply these sheets to armoured locomotives of my Schall Armoured Train mod, I have all individual options so to apply on vanilla locomotive and the unarmoured nuclear-powered locomotive as well. All up to your choice!

And one more reason: nostalgia!

Method

Simply apply the sprite sheets of 0.12 locomotives. No modifications, no PS touching, simple as that.

There is length inconsistency too! Dimensions are right when vertical, but appears longer when horizontal. (That was why devs decided to make a new model in 0.13.)
So do NOT ask me to fix this! I am simply applying the original sheets. I am neither graphics artist nor 3D modeller.

Tint

Since 0.17.2 / 0.18.1, sprite sheets of mask layer are added, so supporting tint of locomotive colours. (Colour change was not an option in original sprite sheets, during base game 0.12. It was always having the default light red colour.

Usage

This is a simple graphics replacement mod, does not change any actual content of your game.
Go to "Options" → "Mod settings" → "Startup" tab, then choose which locomotives you want to get changed with 0.12 nostalgic graphics.

Uninstallation

This mod do not modify any existing content in the save game. This mod should be safe to be disabled/uninstalled at any time.

Mods Dependencies

  • Schall Armoured Train is strictly required! This DLC is dedicated for this mod after all!
  • Schall Tank Platoon is strictly required, since it is the parent mod providing all the vehicle grid system.
  • Schall Alien Tech optional but recommended. The armoured locomotive MK3 comes from it.
  • Schall Transport Group is optional but highly recommended, since it puts vehicle-related items into a new group tab, making the crafting menu more tidy.
  • Schall Gun Pod is an extension mod, introducing several ammo-consuming turret equipment, designed to work with tanks. Still, the armoured locomotives and cargo wagons can mount some of these gun pods.

Mods Related

  • Schall Railway Controller provides an easy to use GUI to help users finding and managing the trains. No longer need to spend time and guess which is the train you are looking for!
  • Schall Overseas Railway allows construction of rails over water tiles. Nice and easy way to explore overseas!
  • Vehicle Wagon would be an excellent addition (updated to 0.16 only) to this mod! Attach some of these vehicle wagons to your train, and mount some tanks on them. Good for fast reaction to enemy attacks, or throwing your expeditions units to the front line! For 0.17, Vehicle Wagon 2 should be used instead.
  • Schall Oil Fuel provides alternate fuel sources. The otherwise useless (in 0.17) heavy oil and light oil become fuel when barreled, usable on locomotives.
  • Schall Perpetual Machine provides some infinite energy source (though expensive) that can be installed on locomotives, no longer consumes any fuel to operate!
