    The ability to create prototypical layouts is also somewhat hindered by the inability of Trainz to make curved points and complex slips.

    I have been looking at the Lincoln (UK) area in the steam...

    There are no real activities for Trainz routes, unlike MSTS/OR or the DTG TS and TSW sims. You place a consist or set of consists in what is known as a "Session", decide if some are driven by the AI...

    Just as an aside, with Steam you get a 2 hour "play" window to cancel a purchase and request a refund. However in the case of DLC that includes any time spent doing something else in the base game...

    There is inevitably a degree of compromise. I divide my time between trying to build prototypical routes and smaller model railway style layouts. Even with accurate DEM data and mapping it is not...

    Sorry if I caused offence, however it was the assertion my comment was aimed at, not the person making it.

    As regards why I shelled out 55 quid for TRS19, well you could argue I was simply seduced...

    From what I've seen of the Indian railway scene in MSTS, it leaves the plagiarism and copyright issues of the Trainz Russian stuff in the shadows! Not to mention whether users are even running...

    Not attacking anyone Paul, just pointing out that Trainz functions at all levels and a wrongly worded assertion could discourage people from producing content at all.

    This happened back in the day...

    You can also now, if careful "step" water which is far more effective than using a spline. You just need to approach the join between the different heights very carefully and you will get a...

    From memory though, there's not a huge amount of Swiss stuff on the DLS. A couple of locos (one of which when I tried it had the cab aliased to a UK diesel complete with AWS sunflower!!), some stock,...

    I held out in 100240 for a couple of the weeks, but the problem is if you're building a route you really need to be up to date, warts notwithstanding. There are enough different versions of this...

    There's some JR roads either built in or on the DLS, the dirt roads are particularly nice. Sadly many of the older roads (pre 2.9 build) look very dated and look like MSTS ones, flat as a pancake on...

    It would be good to see some old railway lines re-open but there has to a decent business case, not just out of some displaced sense of nostalgia.

    A good example of this is the Western Rail...

    There's also the fact that, without the end user possibly knowing it, the scripts which drive much of the signalling have been obsoleted and broken by N3V updates. GWR junction semaphores are an...

    Sounds like this is all tied in with the return of the infamous spline detaching from fixed object then freezing bug, which has already come up.

    I will have to experiment John, but with UK routes particularly in semaphore signalled areas, the starter or section signal is typically located at or just off the end of the station platform.
