    I'm noticing that the included dynamic track TrProfile.sft is incorrect for both ATracks versions.

      Quick question and maybe I missed something here. Has any of the turntable shapes been updated for use with the default track replacement?

      The reason that I ask is that I am in the early stages of rebuilding my Ohio Division route from the ground up. In the original version, I had called for at least 2 turntables. But I find that there doesn't appear to be any updates to them. It's no big deal if they have not been done. As I can model the diesel areas as derelict facilities. The ones in the file library seem to use the old updated shapes.

      The other option that I have is to go scale rail and use the 37m one available in the F/L.

        New shapes are definitely needed. It's on my personal list to take a stab at the A1t27m.

        The ScaleRail 37m is a fairly good fit with the new default profile.

          Thanks, Eric, it does mesh rather well.

            Something I just noticed - only appears on some single track curves on the inside edge,( possible dynamic pieces). Appears fine elsewhere.
            Notice the track base and ballast berm have a slight separation on the one side.
            This is the Aclean track version.

              Just saw it now on a dual track curve as well:

              In the top shot you can see a shift in the top, track texture mapping, and in the lower it is obvious that rails and ties do not match up.

                Do you have super-elevation on, and did you grab the latest profile I posted? They're attached here:

                There's a discussion going over at Elvas on this, but I thought I'd share some of what's going on... a few of us are tackling replacement default track shapes for the A1T's commonly used with XTracks and the default routes. This replacement project will come out to a couple thousand shapes by the time all is said and done.

                  Super elevation is at 0 and I was using the Vers. from 5/3/24, so will update now, thanks.

                  Edit: This was the first time I noticed that. Also swoped track textures and it wasn't as noticeable with another.

                    Just gave it a run, with the 5/22/24 update and still the same.

                    As can be seen on the curve the ties are stretched so the plates for the rail are not lined up correctly.

                    Going to try another alcean1 texture might be an issue with that one(?)

                    Edit: Same with other track texture

                      It was in the TrProfile.stf -- found a couple mappings that were off.

                      Adjusted and hopefully better:

                          Great, all seems good.👍

                          Eric on a personal note, good luck on your move. We're leaving again for Florida this weekend, get the keys to the new abode next week. Won't be full-time yet, but by July or August should be there permanently. moved the rest of the moving discussion to The Roundhouse

                            Hi Eric,

                            Will there be any 3rd rail sections?

                            EuropeanBahn from the very beginning of MSTS, had developed certain track shapes based off the default track, with 3rd rail 3d modeled in. These are pretty crude by all standards. Missing the ramp rails and point work sections.

                            I like taking screenshots, and I am getting a buzz seeing how good MSTS content looks and runs in OR, to the extent I have been acquiring and trying various fre


                            Thanks

                              A bit late, but I updated the UStracks version of default track replacements I was using and the track profile on dynamic track is not matching the shape of 'actual' track sections. (The track closer to the camera is regular track, the further track is dynamic)

                              I also notice some flickering, though I'm not sure if it's plain old z-fighting, at a distance on the dynamic track sections which makes them clearly stand out from regular track sections.

                              The Atracks set doesn't have those problems, so I'll be sticking to that for the moment despite the hit or miss nature of the original track textures.

                                I'll take a look later - currently without my laptop.

                                If you're good with math, you can mess with the trprofile.stf to see what works. It's the first and last values in the ballast and should be a -2.5 or 2.5 x value if I recall.
