Andy,
I have Repackaged the file and re-uploaded. If it isn't working for Ged, then I definitely know that there is a problem! Apologies anyone who has downloaded this corrupt file. Embarassed 
Cheers

The file size should be 180.80MB
Is that the size of the zip file, or the size of the unpacked folders?
I ask because the zip file, as currently downloaded, is 75.9MB with an unpacked size of 143MB

Have you tried unpacking the zip file, before submitting it?

Cheers,
Ged

EDIT : May I just clarify Andy M's last comments?  The zip file downloads without problem - it's the unpacking of the zip file which fails, at Tawfront.ace in 35020's Cabview folder, thus preventing any further unpacking.

Ged,
148MB is the size of the zip file, so there was obviously an issue when I last packaged up or when it was uploaded to UKTS. So that tells me in itself that there was an issue. Lets hope it works next time around correctly.
These things are sent to try us I guess!
Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy,
Sorry to be pedantic (but you know me!).
You have repackaged the files/folders, but I think the problem is with the file before packaging.  If you haven't done so, before you re-submit it to UKTS, may I suggest you try unpacking it yourself.  It's possible that the archiver you're using doesn't find the error and unpacks fully - which one do you use?

Cheers,
Ged

EDIT : Following on from your last comments, it would seem that there could have been a problem with the actual upload to UKTS, in which case you wouldn't know, unless you'd downloaded it as soon as it appeared in the library (which is something I did with my (very few!) uploads).

Hi Ged,
No problem. I had already been through that routine of checking them all through Shape Viewer prior to re-uloading to UKTS. So all good to go now on the Western Front!  Wink Very Happy
So you know I use WinZip. I obviously didn't check these prior to re-uploading last time. A minor mistake I know! But we all live and learn!
Cheers

180MB for 13 steam locos seems an awful lot.

Were the ace and shape files all compressed?

Hi Niall,
I can't answer for the texture files, but the shape files are all compressed.
Each loco's folder takes up about 21.7MB, but included in that are 4 .tga files of just over 1MB a piece.

Just a thought - may be Andy's ISP has a limit on the size of files which can be uploaded; if the same happens again, this is number one suspect!  Or, even, UKTS might be choking on it.

Cheers,
Ged

Hi Niall,
I have just checked all 13 of them in Shape File Manager and yes they are all compressed. I forgot to mention that I meant 148MB and not the 180MB that I said!  Embarassed

Sorry Andy.
Its happened again, have just downloaded version 2.  size 75.9MB
Excatly the same problem with the Taw front ace of 35020 Bibby Line. 35021-35026 do not open.
Cheers
Andy (M)
edit: Have again scrapped first download and tried again, with the same result actual download from UKTS took
4mins 20 seconds.
Im afraid I can not copy the extraction across from UKTS but it stops at Trainset\AAC_DEE_MNR_35020\Cabview\Tawfront,ace.
It stops at 99% and shows 2 errors.

Hi Andy, I also have tried the new download and ended up with same result as the first one, it is only
half the size it is supposed to be and is still missing the 35021-35026 loco's.

Hi Andy,
It is as I suspected - a size limit is being exceeded somewhere!
May I suggest that you upload them in separate parts - your original (Part 1) was only 67.3MB. Recently, mickrik has uploaded an 88MB zip file, which unpacks without problem.

Cheers,
Ged

Hi Andy/Ged.
As all of the Locos up to and including 35019 have downloaded without problem, I agree with Ged that it would now make sence to repackage the last seven Locos seperatly.
Andy, I would like to thank you for your efforts renaming and renumbering all those MNs, there are only two missing now
35011 General Steam Navigation and 35015 Rotterdam Lloyd though I think Danny is going to do the latter for his route, probally with
Golden Arrow headboards as this was a regular loco on this service.
Cheers
Andy

Thanks everyone for the reply. I think there is an issue with UKTS somewhere? I have noticed that all downloads are showing at 0?! It does state that there isn't a limit to the file size that can be uploaded?? But obviously there is??
I am away from my Laptop currently, so I am unable to do anything about it. But I will have a look later. I know there isn't an issue with the Zip file as I checked it myself prior to uploading.
Cheers

I have just sent the following to a member of the team over at UKTS;

Hi,
I have recently uploaded (twice now) my 13 re-textured Merchant Navies to UKTS and for whatever reason the UKTS site is leaving out some of the locos and the files. Please can you tell me why this is? I have checked the zip file that I created and all the models are there and all complete.
It is obviously an issue with the amount of MB (Mega-Bytes) that can be uploaded? It does state though that there isn't a size limit.
Please can you or someone else in the know come back to me with an answer please?
Many Thanks
Andy


Sorry everyone, but this is out of my control currently. There isn't an issue with the zip file as all locos and files are there and complete. As soon as I hear back I will come back to you all. Apologies one and all.

Andy

Hi Andy,
I hesitate to ask this question, as you're a professional in this field  Shocked 

Which upload procedure are you using? Web Folders or FTP. Could it have some bearing on the matter?

HiGed
just taken a look at the UKTS front page and there is a problem or problems ith their System test and their administrators have been paged.
So it looks like its not Andys fault after all, must be very frustrating though.

Hi
That sign has been there for at least 3 weeks now it showed first about the time every up load had a continuous count by it,I have a feeling no one can be bothered about things any more,unless you complain about any thing regarding DTG,
Just my opinion.

Hi Ged,
I have used both web and FTP and still the same issue. I am starting to think this is now an UKTS issue now...... As I have said all folders and the Ace and other texture files are showing correctly and are opening in Shape Viewer. I have had a reply from a Moderator Easilyconfused over on UKTS to say the following to my last message which isn't exactly helpful. But anyway I have forwarded it on! so here it is;

"Hi Andy.

I can assure you there is no file size limit. However, the moderators do not have access to the file library functions. You will need to send an email to support@atomic-systems.com and the site admin / file librarian will reply."


This is very frustrating to say the least!!  Evil or Very Mad 

Cheers

Andy

Hi Andy,
I have every faith that the zip file is perfectly OK on your PC and, without confirmation to the contrary, I also believe UKTS when they say there is no limit on file size.  This is supported by evidence of much larger zip files already existing in the library.   This, to me, leaves one other suspect - your ISP!  Do you know if they impose a limit on uploaded files?  I've tried to find out if mine (Orange/EE) has such a limit, but I'm not able to find any info!

To determine if it is your ISP, you could use one of the sites (DropBox, HighTail, etc) which allow you to transfer large files for free (initially!).  You could then check if the complete file has been uploaded, and download it, if necessary, or one of us could try it.

Cheers,
Ged

Hi Ged,
I assume you have a Dropbox account. If so; I am currently uploading the zip file to dropbox and will send you an Invite/share to the email address I have for you.

As an aside and to bring my workshop thread back on track, here is what I have done from the last post on the LT 20189;





So everyone knows I have cleaned up the lines and have done some more texture work.

Cheers

Andy

EDIT: I have uploaded the complete file to Dropbox and have sent Ged an Invite to it to check it out. I too have downloaded this now to check out for myself.... And no issues for me..... I am hoping Ged says the same. I have never had an upload limit....  Neutral

Thanks Ged,
I sent the Zip file to Pete over at UKTS via Dropbox as he can't seem to understand the issue either. Very strange!!  Shocked 
It is now over on UKTS as file File ID: 33057.
I have also been working very hard on the Class 20 over the past couple of days shaping it to near enough correct and doing the Bogie correctly from scratch.
Here is a shot;



I hope you will all agree that it is coming on well.....

HI Andy.
Yes, that class 20 is certainly coming along fine.
I have just downloaded the Merchant navy pack File UKTS 33057 and all are now "Present and Correct Sir."
Thanks also to Ged for the tip, only I looked at the UKTS site around two to three hours ago and noted that the file had gone missing.
So i guess the boys at UKTS were sorting it out.
Cheers

Funny you should say that Andy, Only, I put the act together a couple of evenings ago and ran 34053 to Southampton
without any problem.
I intend to try one of your MNs on this activity but have to sort out all of the cabview files first.
Cheers

er: Perhaps someone could do a MN activity for This route?

Hi Andy,
You are more than welcome to use my Act as a template and attempt your first go at an Activity? I am more than willing to give you some pointers as I am sure Ged will be more than willing to help as well?
I might do an Act for these Merchants for this Route further down the line, but in the meantime I am concentrating on the Class 20's and the 4TC as well as doing my Business Plan and other stuff in-between.

Um, I think the possibillties of making an activity myself are Zero.
What I actually meant was, I was looking to swap 34053 for a Merchant Navy to see how it performed, Obviously I would back up the original activity first.
I have looked at the Steam 4 me site and creating activities looks horrendous, defently not for me.

Hi all,
Well after a bit of time and with some help from Dave Robinson (TwomanyDJs) help.... Thanks for the help mate!  Very Happy Very Happy - Certainly help from others keeps this Sim alive!!!  Smile 
I have finally been able to crack on with some work on the 4TC Unit! Lots of work still to do, but finally getting some more modelling done on the unit! Air Vents and Internal work is near enough done... Pipework still to do and some minor adjustements. Re-done some of the rounded work on the Cab Front.
Thought I would take a break from the Class 20..... It's nice to mix and match and revert back to photos and to take a step back.....  Smile 
Some work also done to he TFK and also work started on the TBSK..... some shots of the work and then finally with all 4 coaches together...Oh and with 20189 to give you an idea....

















Cheers

Thanks for the reply Alec. It's great that we can all work together when we all need help in order to get the final result.  Very Happy 
BTW, this is probably a long shot, but is anyone able to help me please in locating the 4TC TFK Coach/Seating arrangement and any photos please from the compartments and from the corridors please?
I have managed to find this one; http://thewandererphotos.smugmug.com/International/2010/UK-Trip-Sunday-16th-May-2010/i-zsRg7mt

Can't help with the 4TC but remember thet they were converted from conventional Mk1s so I imagine they recieved little alteration apart from re-upholstering with current EMU material.

The class20 looks a bit too long.  They were 14.25m long over buffers.

Not sure why but 20189 half is below ground and positioned to the side alot....Half of the Diesel is in the first TC coach (But that may be a bounding box issue)... Is this how it is positioned in TSM for 20189 to be like this?

Make sure all parts are centred to origin except bogies and wheels which should be centred to the pivot point.
You can move the centre by holding down SHIFT.

Hi Ian,
Thanks for your help. I have just checked and now the whole of the Class 20 is in the air! Any ideas what I am missing or doing wrong? Here is a screenshot;



Looks like I have some work to do also on the 4TC coaches as the length looks incorrect.....  Crying or Very sad 

Thanks

Hi Andy,

Given the screenshot, I think the head code is quite appropriate.

Regards,

Stephen

Hi all,
Have managed to resolve some issues and spent a couple of hours adjusting the .wag and .eng files. Here is 20189 and the 4TC set in OR;





Will give it a good run fresh out of the paintshop and will then concentrate on some pipework, some final texturing and some cabview's from the outide.

Cheers

Andy

On the plus side, it's saving wear and tear on the wheels and track!  Laughing 



Seriously though, don't worry too much about the problems, like Alec's contributions, you are improving as you go along and for a sim well past it's sell-by date, it's great to have two new people building models as it keeps the sim alive.

All I'd say is don't lose your source files as a) Open Rails opens up new possibilities and b) as you'll get better you'll be able re-visit and improve older models as your knowledge of modelling improves.

Thanks Niall for the feedback. Last night I also did some texture work to the roof of the Class 20. Got the Coupling to make and Pipework left to do. I resized it as well and I might have to redo the frame as it curves in slightly at the front. I've had a brief look this morning and I haven't got enough points from what I can see to curve it. I'm also going to redo the texture for the side of the frame. I will be doing the Cab's Internal controls looking at it from the outside later on today.
For the 4TC this has now been resized on all coaches. Pipework remains. Not sure whether or not to do some Internal Window texturing yet? But still some texture work to do for the sides for the TFK and TBSK.
But any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Cheers
Andy

Hi all,
Here is 20189 nearly finished..... Internal Cabview now has the control panel and seats. Just a couple of minor pieces to do before I see it as completed and testing. Alot of work has been done in connecting every part properly. I am going to put some headboard stands on the buffer beams for a possible London 150 Board as well. Then onto the other Class 20 and the finishing off the 4TC set;





Cheers

Andy

Hi all,
Is anyone able to help me with the Met 4TC Emblem that is on the side of the unit please? I have made a slight change to the main coach with the numbering and will need to make another coach unit with numbering 76297. I have sent 20189 along with the current 4TC unit as it stands for a test after making some changes to the Eng file. Hopefully it tests okay...
Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy,
Looking at the various videos and images on 'tinternet, the crest on the side of the 4TC coaches seems similar to that on "Sarah Siddons", although none of them can be seen very clearly.
My question is - Is it the Metropolitan Railway crest?  If so, have a look here : http://www.vaguelyinteresting.co.uk/?p=2258  

Cheers,
Ged

EDIT : I think I've answered my own question :


You can see a much larger image here : http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/15667-metropolitan-4tcs/

Thanks Ged, I think that gave me the right direction to follow on in going on youtube and having a look at the link you sent me along with a video I found and comparing (Albeit blurred) when pausing in on this video exactly at 1m 16 secs here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Te8YU10Bbw

Hi Andy,
Yes, that's the clip I saw first and thought the badges were similar. When I found the image on the rmweb site, that's what clinched it!!

I love "Sarah Siddons" - she's a real blast from the past! I see we have one in the UKTS library, but she only has her number and not the MET crest, although reskinning shouldn't be too difficult (I'm not offering, though!).

Cheers,
Ged
