    This was an excellent post. It shows the direction that the Trainz franchise has been going in. The idea here is not to beat up on Trainz. We all like the program, that is why we are here. The idea...

    I'm not really complaining about Speed Trees, I'm complaining or concerned that nobody is making them. The same can be said with the current modeling standards needed to make content in TRS2019. It...

    Perhaps I'll look into it the next time I give my street lights an upgrade. I also have may LV yard lights I'd be willing to try that on.

    So we both agree the speed tree program was a bad idea.

    There is a way N3V can have best of both worlds by keeping it simple. They have done it before. However it's not for me to tell N3V what or...

    I was told a parking lot full of those would slow a computer down to a crawl. Don't know if that is true or not. I suppose it is, that's why it's never been implemented into the game. Well, at least...

    Yes, that was the point of all my statements. Trainz may be the best that is out there but in some respects it is falling behind the times. Night lighting is one of those. Another issue I see is...

    That is because he uses coronal effects on his lights. That is not really the problem. The problem is how the light shines, or in Trainz case... does not shine on other objects. A street lamp lights...

    Sadly this is the honest truth, however this was not the plan for Trainz in the very beginning...for those who remember. Yes I know, N3V is forced to do it this way to survive.
