    1. Locating and chaining arcane rules to set up an activity is no substitute for a one stop system like the MSTS Activity Editor.

    Must say TANE SP4 is looking quite good. Hopefully not too long before the general version is released. Think that is my current "backstop" for Trainz even if it does make me a former customer...

    I don't think there is, only trial and error with different catenary systems until you find one that matches the pan height. Been there, done that - very tedious!

    The fact a software company has no other games in its portfolio (other than the long failed Fury) is not a sign of a thriving operation! (IMHO).

    Not a bad idea. Port the decent built in routes over from TS2010 (with assets from the DLS while I still have a FCT) and away we go. At least it doesn't turn the laptop into a room heater like TRS19...

    Trainz is second to none for route building (though that is largely due to Transdem and not N3V), but it comes far down my list* when it comes to the driving experience. Whether it's the wonky...

    Bit of a bump... I just downloaded the FX textures and some of them blend quite well for a very steep mountain side. Not perfect but about as good as I can get.

    Will give it a go with the LIDAR data, see what the outcome is (might have to upgrade my Transdem version for the data though).
