Do you search a certain mutator, mod, skin, map, everything else?

This would make a good contest entry map for someone. Every train map is done wrong, this would be a good chance to get it right for once.

What do I mean? Well, all the trains I've ever seen are movers. That's just not gonna do it. You need more freedom. You need to steer onto other tracks, stop, back up. All the things trains do. It's possible but it's not been done like it should. Think of it like a strangelove on tracks. You can only follow the path of the tracks but you can certainly speed up and slow, turn where there are junctions, stop in place, etc. Hell you could even make jumps and do acrobatics if you wanted to go crazy.

There's a ton of free models out there and I'll bet there are ones with moving wheels. You tie the animation speed to the velocity of the train and you'd have a very convincing illusion even reversing.

Edit: If you consider to do a Thomas map...No. Don't do that.

It's simpler than making a vehicle; we could just have an Actor subclass that would pick every Pawn that jumps on it when it's stationary, move along a few track Actors (killing everything that it touches on its way), and when stationary it "kicks" everyone off a predetermined direction.

As for separating trains and wagons, I'm not sure. Maybe there might be purely decorative wagons?

Did you put all the files in the right sub-folder?

Well, it seems you are really new to UT but that's not a problem.

Guide:
*.unr files go in Maps\
*.utx files go in Textures\
*.umx and *.ogg files go in Music\
*.uax files go in Sounds\
*.u, *.int, and *.ini files go in System\

(I took this out of a readme file ...most good maps come packed together with some info or readme where the mapper explain how to install their maps :wink: )

Looking at the contents of the ZIP, I see the texture files for the Silver Ibex street decorations.
If FNB did not myLevel the the U file into the map, it is missing the actual models for the decos.

Get the deco pack here www.silveribex.com/mt/archives/000038.html

BTW. The install instructions are always included with FragNbraG maps.
If you read through the file DM-XC-EpicTownV2A-readme.txt you would see where the files go.
Many maps come with special instructions, so do your self a favour and read before posting.
