I'm playing jeffryfisher's US History mode and I found it fantastic but they are few minor changes that I want to make. My intension is to make a game more adeqate to 90'-2000' time period. It's all about modding a few trains in the game, and I don't know how to do that.
I know only this:
-It's all about moding RRT2.exe in hex editor
-graphic can't be changed
-names of loco's can be changed in default2.lng file
My intention is to change entry and exit date, reliability, fuel consumption, grade caracteristic, speed and names for SD45, SDP40, GP-18 and Dash-9 . Specifically I want to convert GP-18 to ALCO RS-3, SPD45 and SD40 to GP-38 and SD40-2, DASH-9 to modern GE Evolution Series loco. I think that default game graphic is adequate for that kind of "conversion".
I'm a aircraft modeler, not a programer but I have a benevolent family member who is willing to help me. I only need a basic instruction how to do that. RRT2 is one my favorite game and this project is very important for me.
Thanks for help
