    Question How to do scenery?

    Is there a basic guide for scenery? Making realistic routes is one of my goals
    I am very bad at scenery, and need help.

    But stop before you make the house move along the track.

    Static Scenery items are Grass, Trees, Buildings, People etc. Scenery Splines are alot like track, and are walls, roads etc.

    Textures are painted on the baseboard grid. Best using radius to almost small or just a tab bigger, and scale to minimum.

    The baseboard grid is topography, which 10m x 10m squares can be raised, lowered, and apply gradients, cuts & fills. There are many different techniques to build mountains, and cut valleys. Track & roads can be used to carve and raise the topography. Most times you never venture (drive/view) more than 100' from the track. Others use a DEM to create topography on a grand scale.

    Work in small areas and have patience. Landscaping can take up most of your time as you are building a route. Use Alt-Y to get in close to the ground to see what the scene will look when looking out the cab window. Use this tool also to look for stupid things as trees in the tracks, floating roads, tracks, crooked tracks, other annoyances.

    I forgot to add that there's an awesome sticky in the Surveyor forum on scenery tips.
