This technology would be perfect for generating a 3-D Amfleet model  (or many other passenger car models):

I'm not sure we're looking at the same kinds of programming. I imagine "C" is part of the BVE/ OpenBVE application itself, but the object files were historically defined with simple text files naming the faces of the object, laying out the various co-ordinates of the faces, and either assigning a color or specifying a bitmap to be assigned to a particular object face as a texture. 

 

I imagine any object converted from the output of the application in the above linked video would need fairly involved editing to reduce the number of object faces, but it might be easier than coding up a carbody from scratch (assuming one is familiar enough with object creation.

And thus begins the Commuter F40PH expansion development. All I am doing is basically giving the locomotive a repaint into various commuter liveries and also repainting the coaches to match as well. I hope to have an NJT version done in the next 48 hours or so. Both will be released together later this week.

Had a random burst of productivity and completed the first three, which are now ready for download (NJT, MBTA, MNCR):
Coming soon = Metra, Caltrans, VRE, VIA, Metrolink, and maybe more (due by Christmas).
Enjoy =)

About the above 4 downloads: Here are the various expansion packs for locomotives that I have released previously that now allow you to operate them with Horizon consists. I have taken the time to paint the railcar into multiple forms (some fictional, and some not):
Coach Class, Business Class, two Cafe (Dinette) cars (one Northeast Regional branded, the other plain), and a fictional cab car. Enjoy =)

Done. However, the windows for the Comet IB in this initial release will have to remain in their current state. I'll probably get around to fixing them some time tomorrow.

^Here is the preliminary version of the ACS-64 Traction Motor sounds for OpenBVE. Since no ACS-64 body exists yet, I am using the ALP-46 body as a placeholder. To watch the video that showcases my developing these motor sounds from start to "finish", proceed here:

Some tweaks in V1.0b, including volume adjustment, and raising maximum pitch at high speeds, providing for a more seamless motor whine. Consist is an 8 car Northeast Regional train. Acceleration on full throttle from 0 to 125 mph is shy under 3 minutes.

Another spin off of the Bombardier built Comet Cars. The video speaks for itself:
A drive-able pack with an AEM-7 should be available before the end of the weekend.

After only 8 hours of development, I present to you SEPTA Regional Rail Push Pull Equipment. Powered by a fictional AEM-7AC rebuild for SEPTA (AEM-7DCs to come later), consists include 6 and 7 car Comet I and Comet II sets. Enjoy:
