    Very nice. I am making a horse shoe curve route to but this one looks better! I can't seem to get the hills right.

    Being that several of us have 06 ... editing routes between us, by sending CDP's back and forth, would be advantagious ... I could edit your route(s) and make subtle changes ... and send it back to you for your approval and future work.

    A large CDP can be zipped up in a Zip File, and sent by E-Mail.

    Got off school for the week in order to get my wisdom teeth out- plus side get to work on the route, down side, i have u go through the not so pleasant experience of having 4 teeth ripped out of you. Gonna show off some more brilliant content from Jointedrail.com again, if anyone doesnt yet know Joe just released a weathered version of his spine cars which fit perfectly on my route





    Started scenery in Altoona




    Thanks

    Default Nit Picking, and Picking Ticks

    I don't know whether it is 09 that makes it look so darn good ... or you are just better at this than me.

    The "Curve" StoneShed is a little closer to the tracks and a window is not facing the railfan area.

    Also there is a short MOW parking spur on this right side of the MG Tower, off of track #4

    Your pictures look so real ... that I think I picked up ticks, (which is par for he course up at MG Tower).

    Super Job ! Very Impressive !

    What are your gradients like ? Are they true to the prototype ? The track from Antis to Alto is @ 0.41%, from Alto to Brickyard it is 1.22%, 0.12% at the Sag, and 1.47%, (there is a Sag just before the big curve bfore Brickyard), the main trackage from Brickyard to the Curve is @ 1.75%, the curve itself is 1.45%, therafter to Bennington is @ 1.75%, the Slide is 2.36% up to the higher Tunnelhill/Portage Tunnel bore, 1.82% up to the lower Tunnelhill/Allegheny Portal. I think the tunnels are: Portage Bore is 1.39%, & Allegeheny Bore is 1.00% inside. The Galitzin bore is now vacant and fenced off.

    The big sweeping curve at Tunnelhill is Salpino Curve, named after the late Oscar Salpino: PRR Pittsburgh Track Foreman, and self appointed caretaker of the "Curve".

    I have been tinkering with different types of tracks again in TRS2006, it seems that Open GL is the TRS2006 default, but DirectX does not seem to have any difference or adverce framerates, in a Fraps video. I tried RTS 26 track, and the European passenger sound is getting on my nerves, also some people are having problems aquiring RTS tracks, as you need to register ... So I am still stuck on MP Woodv v2 (which works in 09/10).

    Can you make a short Fraps video of your route ? Fraps is a free proram, and is easy to use wth Windows Moviemaker, or Windows Live Moviemaker.

    I didn't make the track, but I honestly can't remember where is came from, it was a French site somewhere. Its called "Rail HD VI" and is brilliant, if anyone can remember the name of the site feel free to stick it up

    @cascade, thanks again for the info, think i have the grades down pretty good. I downloaded Fraps and had a play with it, I tried taking some video but I could only ever get it to record for about 15s donno if im doing something wrong or what...

    Thanks again everyone for such positive comments
