    Default Trainz Model Railroad Noob- Help Please?

    Hello! I am an old Trainz player, and I thought I should take a stab at making a model railroad in Trainz. What assets would I need to download to get features for the room, supports, benchwork, etc? Buying TMR2017 is not in the cards for me.

    Thanks,
    Kramp

    It contains assets lists, HowTo's, instruction video; all you are looking for.
    Thanks for the fun

    Kramp --

    This is the video that got me started:



    But I now use a different method. If you download this layout and take it to pieces (as a first step, remove the fascia), I use terra-forming to drop the floor:

    Dig holes only allow rectangular baseboards. Terra-forming allows a 45 degree edge.

    As for the process I generally use:
    Lay the track.
    Scenic terra-forming.
    Add the structures.
    Texturing.
    Drop the floor, add fascia and texture the floor.
    Add walls.
    Fiddle to get things right.

    Be advised that the last takes an eternity.
