That bloated feeling.

It's audience participation time!

Having had a quiet week with various things sapping time away from the modelling there's a sparkly ex-works 102t tanker (without bogies) sitting here. As the paint has gone on thoughts have turned to what people want to see in stock packs in terms of dirt and weathering while not bloating their system too far.

Presently thoughts have been along the lines of ex-works, lightly weathered and filthy versions, which obviously creates three versions of each model. As we intend to include both loaded and empty versions (with physics to match) that then increases the number of individual items to scroll through to six per model and then naturally any other variable doubles the numbers again. Obviously this isn't so much of an issue for those of you who just use included scenarios and those you've downloaded from elsewhere, but for people who use the scenario editor you can end up with a long list very quickly even if you use the available filters.

We'd really like to strike a balance on this one and would really appreciate your thoughts. Please add a comment to this post, pop something onto the Facebook page discussion or drop us a line using the contact form on the website and we'll try and make as many people happy as possible!

Hi guys, when considering the number of different liveries that you may decide on, I'd prefer just light and typically downright filthy.

although, whatever is decided, I'd much rather have an extensive stock list to look at rather than limited choices. The prospect of a long list won't ever be a problem for me. Good luck with it.

I think you've calculated enough models to give us with the information shown, don't forget the community has many reskinners, so vast amounts of different liveries will undoubtedly occur in the future.

Looking forward to these tankers, thanks..
