Tees Valley Line and Peninsula Corridor were the first two DLCs for Train Sim World that I was fully involved in, as a World Builder at Dovetail Games. They were released in May and August 2019.
Using a combination of Google Earth, photographic reference and old maps (of the UK in the 80s, when Tees Valley Line is set), I put together most of the scenery around Dinsdale, Teesside Airport, Allens West and Eaglescliffe stations.
For Peninsula Corridor, a US route in California, I was responsible for the section between Redwood City and Mountain View.
Recreating real train routes in Train Sim World is a collaborative effort between artists and developers of different specialisations. My work as a World Builder involves terrain sculpting/painting, asset placement and technical tasks such as collision setup, all in Unreal Engine 4. The assets themselves (buildings, foliage, textures etc) are created by other artists.
