Well, I had my first shot at using the Surveyor editor yesterday.
(Enclosed is a short video of the end result) - :)

BTW. How do I create water/rivers etc in Surveyor?

Cheers.

To add water, you use the tools in the first tab. there should me a row for adding water.

Hi John, and T.M.

I'm glad you enjoyed the video. Fun for kids of all ages. :)

BTW. If anyone wants this zany (Trainz2004) route,
I'm happy to upload it to my webspace.

Cheers again (and thanks for the 'water' tip, John)

I'd like to get this thread posted on the Screenshots forum, but
I'm unable to post there (I keep getting a message saying I dont have
enough privelages. Even though Ive put in my serial number).

So if anyone would like to link this thread to the screenshots forum,
I'd be obliged.

Cheerz.

Nice work TinTrain. Love the video, and great idea for a layout. I suggest you keep a back-up of it, as you get more skills in surveyor, you can upgrade it later. :) You'll be surprised with how much fun making a layout like this is, then looking back and updating it in a years time.

The thing is the creator of this route is learning, he was trying things. What he was doing is the best way to learn.

When you start making proper routes, in about 12 months time, you can look back and say look how far I've come.:D

Thanks TinTrain, I had some good laughs and hopefully that was your intention.

I found the video a good counterpart to all the prototypical and serious routes one is working on. For beeing a first route - why not...

TinTrain's layout appears to be just for fun. We can have fun in Trainz, right?

Cheers,

With a route like that I am suprised they let him near a computer at all!!:D


Just kidding, I thought it was a great laugh!
I cant believe that someone would get bent outta shape over a very humorous video like that.

But I guess thats why you cant even make a joke anymore without worrying about who will be offended.

Either way-
