Train Simulator

Part 1: Background and Train.

OK. to start off, open Flash and start a new document. We'll start with the background.
Make sure that the properties are as follows: Background = White. Frame Rate = 12fps. Actionscript=2. Flash Player = 7. Size = 550x400 pixels.
Make a medium-grey box at these dimensions: w:550 h:93.7 and put it at the bottom of the page. Make another darker one with the following dimensions: w:550 h:92.3 and place it just over the other one. Make a white box to fill up the last space. If you want to do some design on the wall (which is the white box), do it now. You can also do a track piece if you like. Next make a new symbol (insert>new symbol) and call it "train". Make sure its a movie clip. Now draw your train. Make sure its length is 530px and the height is 73px. do whatever design you like, as long as its that size and also, make 3 carriages with 2 doors in each. That’s the first part, the next one is hard, if you do it my way.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
