Hey Engineers! after little break im happy to present you my new creation. This time I tried to find a compromise between design and technology. I was always worried about what excellent technical solutions remain good design. in the stage of early access we have a bunch of cool stuff to create mechanisms, but few tools to make them look beautiful. So, this time I used a lot of tools just for design. Аnd my own challenge here was to create a real engine, without using the wheels, as this steam train. I spent all night working on only small details like machinist's cab, small tubes, etc...and here is what I got. I hope you enjoy.






I put a lot of small parts. You can explore the train and see for yourself) controls are very simple: Q/E - forward and back, no turns - its a train. Press 1/2 to let off steam.
Train work very stable without invicibility mode, but as in reality, do not start to go back as soon as went forward, there is a risk that you damage the engine) Ofc, this train is huge, but for me, its work normaly on 50-60% game speed.

Can you elaborate about the real engine part? I don't quite understand but I'm interested. I hope it's not too much trouble for you.
Without using the wheels? Do you mean "Motor Wheels"?

I've looked at the mapping but I can't get it to move. Can you explain about the controls? This might be helpful to your fans too.

Hey! yeah, i mean "motor wheel's". i've create engine with powered Cog's and attach them to the unpowered wheels. for attachments i've use wooden pole, hinge's and brace's.
also i've use mod from old forum which adds an extra angle control to all parts, like 45-90-135-180%
