    It doesn't look like you handled the transparency correctly. Unfortunately, the TGA format is extremely finicky with transparency, so you'll have to figure out how your image editor handles it. If you're using MS Paint, don't expect to be able to make it work properly.

    You may have better luck with the PNG format.

    Just cut out the logo. Actually, if you wanna send me the files I could work it out for you.

    Thanks for your help, but I'll just use the PNG file format for the cartexture. I'll figure something out!

    Solution: PNG

    I love the turquoise touch! But.. round supports? Why not, but they seem to be a tad big, make them smaller using the .env.
  2.  
    Yeah the turquoise color looks great! But I too disagree with the choice of round supports.
  3.  
    I like the little wire-like ones under the handrails. Everything else.....um..no.

    I like the "wires" and the turquoise handrails. Round supports on a woodie though...?

    Why even would you use tubes? Not to be rude, I'm just curious.

    Well, I was just curious to see what it would look like. Also, I accidentally set the rotation of all the supports to 0, so it made the vertical columns skewed. I was just being lazy, and I didn't want to redo the supports at that time.

    Looks much better now - like a woodie. ;)

    Could you raise the handrails a bit? So that the bents don't poke through.

    I'm wondering about that logo on the train...

    ...do you really mean to say that insufficient and deceased riders will immediately be recycled to Soylent Green ???

    Okay, to make this ride concept seem clearer to everybody, I'll explain it below.

    Well, as part of my high school graduation, I am making this ride to show my school spirit. The school that I go to is Sparhawk, and the colors that I chose on the ride are the colors used in the school's logo. The school's logo is pictured on the front of the train, and the rest of the train colors are what the school's theme colors are. Last but not least, I am building this ride as if it were real, meaning that there IS a river behind my school, AND there will be tons of 3DS coming along the way...

    Here's a quick look at the custom station. I actually found a great method of making 3D structures with wooden catwalks. Well, just create one of the sides, such as the base or the wall, and extrude it in 3DS Max! It saves A TON of time, and it looks better anyway. More to come next week...

    No worries guys, I will fix these issues as soon as I can. The beams and gates are only temporary; the final product will be imported into 3DS Max and fully textured and optimized!

    Alright, it has been nearly a month since the last update on this project, so I might as well show you all a picture of the new station area! Don't worry - trees will be added, textures will be fixed, etc. If all goes well, I will possibly be able to finally upload this ride to the exchange tomorrow! Yeah, you heard that right!

    Please fix the texture on the fence, as it is now it looks pretty dire. Also in that pic the vertical beams are steel again.
