    While they may not be tutorials, I would advise in putting in Pikes Signals .lua for the simple fact that there are notes in there that explains which line of code does what.

    I myself would like to see someone make a tutorial on how to make a assest folder to put content and how to change the scripting on reskins to make them work. (I tried to do this with my Overnight reskin but couldn't make it work) also mabey we can have a mod sticky this as this thread may be helpful to new users.

What worked perfect in one may give you completely different results in another.

    Oh and let's not forget this one either.

    tis true though I am not as bad with the layers though

    thank you I have been trying to find this tutorial for a while now as it deals with weathering.

    Texturing is easy once you figure it out. though I think I will break the tutorials up into diffrent sections for ease.

    RS Route Setup, Marker, And Terrain Tutorial

    (Tutorial created for RS, but the process is almost identical in RW)

    Fast and Accurate Marker Creation

    A tutorial in 11 pictures: How to set up markers for RailWorks - fast, accurate and everywhere in the world.

    Export a SketchUp Model to RailWorks

    A tutorial in 27 pictures: How to export a textured (simple) SketchUp model to 3DCanvas and subsequently to RailWorks. Requires some knowledge of how to use 3DCanvas.

    Cheers!

    Thank you they have been added to the Downloadable Tutorial section.

    Awesome you're going to do one for the texturing part. I can even fathom trying to explain the 30 layer mess I create when I'm in my repainting mind frame. Look forward to it.

    Hi! I just checked out the Tutorial for Scenario/Set a stop at instruction. The explanation is correct, but very basic. It does not continue with the best instruction on how to set way points (pass through or stop at) over a fairly long route, where the markers are not within easy reach from the scenario marker.

    This is just one point, and I am sure that there are many others examples with each Tutorial. IMO, the tutorials are just too basic. Cheers; Chuck F.

I know that we have an online wiki but I have seen people say that it can be hard to understand. What Good tutorials already exist? post a link and I will add it to the list. Also what tutorials do people want to see? I might make a couple of tutorials myself but they will be focused around Reskins and importing models into RW.
