Version 3.5 

This is a script addon for the Blender 3D program.  It provides a means to create .S shape files  for Microsoft Train Simulator or Open Rails.   

The script includes a number of optimizations for higher frame rates and better GPU and CPU  usage including:  

­ Primitive consolidation which reduces batch calls by consolidating tris from different objects  when they use the same material  

­ Large primitives, vertex_sets, and subobjects are split as needed to prevent them from  exceeding MSTS's loading limits.  

­ Complex hierarchies are simplified and collapsed to prevent exceeding MSTS's hierarchy  depth limits and to improve effectiveness of the primitive consolidation 

The package includes:

- a custom panel on Blender's material tab, giving you access to all of MSTS shader and lighting options.

- a display panel to preview the effects of your LOD settings.

- object name translations allowing you to export the same model to both Railworks and MSTS

- two example Blend files that demonstrate Texturing, LODs, and Animation

- an instuction manual
