G'day everyone, Some really good shots lately from all. Really enjoying seeing them.
Almost finished in Benalla north of the Broken River.

Always looking good Graeme. Keep it up mate.
Been working on a new route based on a model HO gauge railroad I'd built years ago. Trainz is far easier than 'kit-bashing' or laying on your back soldering a few wires to a Pico turnout; and overall I think Trainz gives me greater satisfaction on what can be accomplished. Anyway, here's a couple of shots so far.

Wow, Roy. You guys down there really make it tough on field goal kickers, don't you>

Nice work Roy, the new route is looking really good.

Goal posts in Australia vary, depending on the code of football (i.e. Rugby League, Rugby Union, A.F.L. etc) which includes the height of the posts.
In AFL there are five different heights ranging from 6m to 15m depending on grades for School, State-wide or Stadium level. In RL & RU they are generally 16m high on state-wide football gounds, but can have unlimited height for the major stadiums. This is to make it easier to judge goals scored.
So it's not unusual to see really high goal posts 'down-under'.

Thanks Graeme, I appreciate your comments.

Just as well because when I double-check each screenshot, it highlights something else I'd overlooked - like placement of fencing to track-side items. Luckily they are easy to move.

I didn't know that, Roy. I certainly appreciate that our brand of football is pretty tame when compared to rugby. It's hard to imagine how our players get hurt at all with the padding they have, but it happens. I attended a rugby match many years ago when I was in Brisbane on R&R from Vietnam. Great fun! Plenty of rabid fans, including the three RAN Petty Officers we traveled with.

Gosh Graeme, that grass in the last shot looks good enough to lay on mate. You've done a great job.

Went a bit stronger on the SSAO in manual post processing. I changed total strength to 1.000000, Base to 0.300000 and radius to 0.020000. It's grazzy grass A from JR, but the darker shadowing from the SSAO tweak gives it greater depth and the billboard trees are less see through which was the original reason for playing with SSAO.

I'm putting feelers out there for anyone who may be able to help us out. Is there anyone who wouldn't mind setting up the sound and engine files for our XPT? I have sounds files to use but neither I nor Memeboy know how to setup a diesel train.
Here are a few shots from todays run.

Big thanks to Graeme for allowing me to test our train on his WIP Map. Looks awesome mate and I run the whole thing on the real timetable.
