    This would also imply an ability to open two routes at the same time and being able to toggle back and forth between them otherwise copy / paste will be a rather clumsy operation. Oh well, we can...

    I saw that, so it looks like I'll have to rip up the roads and repave they in the other direction. Will have harsh words with the contractor. :(

    Oneway road direction

    I have a bunch of auto-generated oneway roads for the main highways in my map. Unfortunately, they are pointing in the wrong direction. Aside from removing them and re-laying them so the traffic goes...

    One way to think of it is that the route objects like tracks, rolling stock, etc don't change size but the world they in habit gets proportionally bigger. Sort of the opposite when building a scale...

    Yes, I was referring to the TransDEM generated tiles. Since I'm using 500 m tiles and there is a lot of water in my map, about 24 tiles only had water and so have a single uniform color which...

    A very good summary of what was lost in the effort to improve Trainz. I wonder if there was a code incompatibility that would prevent, for example, the unified interface from working if any of the...

    The more I think about it and the more often I encounter these so-called "improvements" to my uploaded objects, the more I'm resenting the time and effort it will take to obsolete them on the DLS...
  9. TransDEM UTM tiles and uniform color tiles

    TransDEM has this wonderful feature where it can create a set of UTM tiles containing the terrain data as a guide so that objects can be placed in the map with the correct spacial relationship. When...

    IIRC, the people who write the code are not the same people who actually use it to create a route. This seems to be a perfect example of unintended consequences. :confused:

    Oh my, so that's what is happening. Back in the day, I uploaded a bunch of Surveyor objects that helped me when creating a route. I recently revived an old T:ANE version to build a new route and...

    I agree with GM's assessment of the "progress" over the years. A bit of a rough ride!

    I was also an enthusiastic adopter of the improved versions of Trainz with their improved features since the...

    or
    3. return to T:ANE

    Funny how going back to T:ANE feels like a step forward, at least as far as building a route goes. Once the basic parts have been edited from the TransDEM imports, I...

    So where is it or how do I access this 'tightened' function? I'm aware of track / object hierarchy so a simple warning would be enough.

    The issue is that all tracks auto-created by TransDEM are...
  15. Bulk Asset update/replace and layers too?

    Is there a way to move multiple tracks from one layer to another layer in TRS19? Doing this one segment at a time gets old real fast!
    Back in the days of TANE, the Bulk Asset update/replace had...

    As a one-off, it would add a point of interest but you need to consider the impact it will have on the smooth running of your route. It is very easy to add one more object. Remember that straw on the...

    Hmmm, is there an index of LIDAR sourced DEM data available? I've used 30-Meter SRTM Elevation Data Downloader but would be interested in LIDAR data too.

    Further on the amount of objects, decide early on how you want to see your route. Overhead drone or roaming; trackside cameras or only from a cabview. Depending on what you decide, you may need more...
  19. building a map using DEM generated terrain

    When building a route with terrain elevations generated by DEM data, it is rare that there are any truly flat areas. From my understanding of how DEM data is made, the tops of trees, buildings and...

    So this is not an new issue with the gaps? I was about to comment that when they fix the current issues with SP3, portals and who knows what else, can your fixes be easily undone? Perhaps by placing...

    If you let TransDEM paint the landscape on the terrain, you don't really need the tiles unless you need a more detailed view. Plus by having it add the rail splines from a route map, you'll have the...

    TransDEM can place road and track splines, based on the vector maps you can create manually or get from other sources like Open street Maps. Of course they have to be extensively edited which is...
