SBB CFF FFS RABe 511 (Stadler KISS) Project | Update


As most of you already know by now, I have been working on a RABe 511 ‘Stadler KISS’ Doppelstockzug for TS2017. The project was started in March this year and I hoped to finish it before the end of 2017.

This is an update on the project dated 26-11-2017

Progress has been slowed down due to time constraints. I just haven’t had much time to work on this project. Progress has been made however. Much time has been spent in fixing mesh issues with the original exterior model but time was spent mostly on the cab development. I have been working on the cab animations and screens. This is a lot of work due to the inclusion of some of the sub menu’s. There is a lot of scripting work involved with this too.

X-mas release will be very hard to do now. I am not giving up on it yet but I have to be fair in my projections for the release date. If I manage to ramp up the hours I can spend on this, it might still be possible..

I have included some Work In Progress shots which, as always, are not the final product.

Current progress on the RABe 511 project.

    Du machst immer tolle Züge und der RABe 511 ist absolut mein Lieblings Zug. Ich wollte fragen ob du ungefähr weist wenn der Zug fertig währe. Möchte ihn sehr sehr gerne fahren 😀

      Hallo ‘Sonderer’,

      Thanks for your comment. I am currently working on advanced cab controls and scripting. It should go out to the testers soon. Release will depend on how much issues they find.

      Kind regards,

      Thank you for your interest in the KISS. An alfa version is being tested right now. If all goes well I expect release by end of Februari.
