RAILROAD – SOME SERVICE STATIONS

 

I spent some time thinking about stations for giant railroads.

As a rule of thumb, consider 1 voxel = 1 m. That will give you the approximate scale of the places and the trains.

Oh, how I love the isometric renderer.

VOXEL TRAINS – ISOMETRIC RENDERER

I keep doing voxel trains. This time, military trains. By no means realistic.
One of the videogames that blowed my mind looong time ago was one called Transartica, about a giant train crossing a frozen earth and battling other convoys.

I’ve been coming back to the idea of war trains regularly.

Magicavoxel has now a really neat isometric renderer, that provides these really lovely models:

RAILROAD_01.iso
plain rail road
RAILROAD_ARMOURED_01.iso
Armored gunwagon
RAILROAD_ARMOURED_TROOPS_01.iso
Barracks with searchlight
RAILROAD_CARGO_01.iso
Cargo car.
RAILROAD_CHASSIS_01.iso
The basic chassis I’ve used for the rest of the carriages
RAILROAD_COMMS_01.iso
I’m quite sure there’s never been a radar on a train platform
RAILROAD_LOCOMOTIVE_01.iso
Diesel locomotive. Quite sovietic, huh?

And this is how an assembled convoy looks. I wish I knew how to code a wartrain game, now.

Remember that you can do even beter things just playing with MagicaVoxel and give its author some love:

VOXEL TRAIN

For some reason, this week I’m only thinking of trains. I’m drawing trains, I’m modelling them in proper 3d and the I realized I just wanted a cute voxel train.

The head image is the model rendered in Blender3d, by the way.

AS always, I guess I’ll make a few more carriages, maybe a station, and then I’ll move on.

A robo-train s something that excites me, for some reason. I’m pretty sure I’ll do one.
