I see nice uniform sweeping curves, and properly straightend turnouts, and adjacent splinepoints perfectly matched side by side ... asside that your TGA screenshot needs to be converted to a JPG ... Looks great ... Keep up the great werk !

If I may add on the subject of the screenshot, be sure to crop the image to leave out that white space. Otherwise, from what I can see, my thoughts concur with cascade's.

if you dont mind, i can get the route the dalles to north powder done, witch will connect both of out routes if you want. the only thing i cant seem to get right is the texturing.

June 19th, 2011, 08:43 PM
I can help you guys with that if you want

the jointing of both of the routs need to be made with the middle dem set so that his and mine dont get chewed up to much. i can do the modifing if stmsoccer is willing to do the texturing on the routes. the only problem i see is that we will have different track marker names for our routes. JackieG what track are you using for you route? if the three of us work on the whole thing making the track seamless will look the best. let me know ok. bye for now -inprr

You've been around long enough to know not to quote images, don't be lazy and remove the link. The elevator is on the DLS i believe.

i have good news for people that love long routes. i have merged the dems from the dalles to pocatello witch means that maybe i can get it to go all the way to portland. if i cant get the cmp to make a cdp i will put them where they can be merged without much work.:hehe: -inprr
