Omaha 0-6-0 Engine and Tender
Rigged and Animated Version
OMAHA 0-6-0 Rigged and Animated update Lightwave version 7.5-8.5 and 9.5 and up
This is an updated, Rigged and Animated version of the same Engine and Tender I have for sale as a 'static model'.
Due to Newtek's updating the IK system in LW 9.5 that makes animation of the wheels MUCH easier, I have:
1) a version of the Rigged model that works from LW 7.5 to version 9.4 (it has been absolutely tested in versions 7.5 8.5 and 9.5).
I also found that the LW8.5 version worked somewhat in LW9.5 but was problematic, so if you have LW9.5 buy that version of the model please.
2) a version just for LW9.5 and up
There are two "Rig Tester" zip files that you can download to test the rigging in your version of Lightwave before you buy:
"PISTON TESTER-LW75-93.zip" should work fine in all versions from 7.5 to 9.4
"PISTON TESTER-LW95.zip" should work in LW9.5 and will not even load in earlier versions.
Download and test on your version of Lightwave first.
The maps have been updated, and the model remapped.
I have added a terrain model with straight track and a tunnel at each end.
Also, there are short sections of straight track and of curved track so that you might add them into your own scene.
