Dave;
I want to stay with American style objects for my first expansion. I knew this would create a bit of a buzz if I included a needed object that's not in RtR and it would be very specific to one side or the other of the Atlantic.

If you cant wait for a second "general" expansion you could import the texture files into an image program like Paint Shop Pro and "mirror" the image. (I can give a few tips and a link to a free .DDS converter if anyone wants to try this.)

The lines are a part of the whole texture and to make them recolorable, they would have to be individual polygons in each model. It would work, but the poly count for a table with a lot of road will go up real fast.

Here's the twelve peices of "road kit", and a couple of quick examples of how they can be combined.

haven't exported the garage yet.
Guess I need to make traffic lights.

OOOOOH!!!
I totally forgot the level crossing!
Don't worry. Wink

Very "Americana"

Who remembers Petticoat Junction?

Up next; a sanding hopper.

(that's my custom ground texture, not part of the model)

Hi Paul,

Fantastic work! I feel like I'm looking through a hobby shop catalogue and I look at these images often. Can't wait to see them on my layouts.

Petticoat Junction. Who knew I would eventually grow old enough to relate to Uncle Joe?

Stay safe out there.
