An update on the Medicine Hat route...for those who are interested in such things.

by Chris750 on March 21st, 2017 at 09:15 PM
Howdy folks, been since August that I wrote the blog, I have been busy working on the MH route and am now about 70% finished. I am currently putting in all the towns and such but I am too picky on such things, I want them to look exactly like the real thing which is impossible and slows me down to no end, in fact I will spend an hour searching content on and off line for a building that looks exactly right, just nuts.

My gradient calculator

by Chris750 on July 2nd, 2016 at 10:01 PM

This is the gradient calculator I use for track that is bendy and such and the "apply gradient" just doesn't work well. Basically it calculates where to put the spline and at what height to give you the slope shown, works well. Help file is in the zip.
