:wave: OH you guys really now how to put a show on, this Route looks fantastic........Can hardly wait till it comes in........

Thank You JR developers.........Well done.
Guess I don't really need that money...

Looks great! I can't wait to run on it. I love Coal Country, and I think I'm gonna like this one even more.

Amazing ! Will the GM1 come with a custom cab ?

Unfortunately not, the GM1 is not JointedRail Content and will be released elsewhere as freeware as well as being packed into this route, it was a project by Australian Trainz Division and Steve asked if I'd like to skin it for the route so I took him up on it. :)
Looks great!

If I ever get done with reworking old assets, finalizing new assests and upload the entire mass I might even have a minute to work the route!

I agree. JointedRail should have used SpeedTrees. Billboard tress are just so TRS2004.

Despite this it looks so impressive that I've ordered it.

Fair comments you raise, and I'd be interested to see what the route looks like after you swap them out. It's similar to Coal Country in that it uses Speedtrees up close for detail and billboards for distant fill. I did try to use entirely STs at first but they don't have the density or colour I was looking for.

You can see the mix here

I think the main reason why they're not so many speedtrees is because it will lag the route too much
MF01 --

Disagree, assuming, of course, that you use a limited variety of SpeedTrees.

One advantage of SpeedTrees is that they will vary in height -- plant the same type of SpeedTree in close proximity to each other and you will find that their height will vary. Some will be short, others tall, some medium. This gives a much more pleasing effect than identical bill board trees.

As for the fame rate hit. I've never noticed it when substituting SpeedTress for billboards.

That's one outstanding screen shot. Superb.
