Hi all. Just wondering if there is a way to get templates of routes to use in surveyor. I am getting stuck when making a route as I am all over the place. Would be nice to have a guide to get some ideas. Just starting out with this any ideas would be great.
Thanks, Steve

Well I am working on a route with another user. He showed me somethings that are on google. They are track plans. They look very nice. Just look up something like "track plans" or such.

You could look (and invest) into TransDEM.

Out of curiosity, i have noticed that there is a free (albeit older) version out there. Should this exist?

Be careful with such links. In the worst case, you catch a Trojan Horse or some other malware, in the best case you get one of the in-version updates/patches which you could also download directly from my website. And these are free, indeed.

Hello Steve,
When I started out I looked at routes I downloaded on the DLS and examined ideas from various builders, including the content they use. Just open the routes in surveyor. Also, I give a short tutorial here https://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?118040-1930s-English-Mainline-Truro-to-Penzance/page13 Happy to provide you any tips, advice/assistance you require. Just private message me.

Regards
Bob

Reason I ask is that the page number depends on how many posts you show per page (defined in forum settings). For me your topic has only 9 pages for example.
For a link to a specific post, click on the post number in the top right corner of the post.

Reread what I wrote:

The number of pages depends on forum settings.
The post number, however, is the same for everyone.
