        I never tried Run8 yet. Is there a route world editor available for use? I would also look for a 3D import/ exporting tool for Run8 as well. Would love to build the CN Wainwright Sub.

          I appreciate that gives thumbnails. I'm talking about the image size when you click on it.

              Hello Tie V2 currently has no editors. The only thing you can do I believe is swap out horns, or with experience write your own train consist files. My software RTS in V1 was able to do this, but I never updated it for V2.

              Way back in V1 for about a year they talked about a SDK (Software Development Kit). It was set to approximately come to being 1 year after launch. Unfortunately it eventually faded from the Run8 site. The only explanation that I've seen is that the editors they use are too buggy or too far away from being a reality (I'm paraphrasing John lead programmer's quote on this). That was 7 years ago approximately?

              V2 never included such talk until I think over a year ago when John also quoted "making some of the editors available". Mikey who developed the northeast is on my forums. Jason and Jim can be found here. I'll mention it to Mikey as I'm curious. V3 was last rumored by Brad in a FB post for the end of the year. There has also been a few health issues to deal with by some of the above mentioned developers.

              Anyways we are off topic being this is a screen shot forum. But I thought you deserved an answer.

              Take care

                  Thank you Sean for the information. I guess I'll stick with Open Rails for creating content for the time being.

                        Yep that's better.

                        Seems like your fellow Run8 users are less keen on contributing screenshots though .

                        There are loads of videos on YouTube of Run 8 trains ....recorded at night, in the dark..... ?!?!?! I know that Run 8 users like the "realism" ...and that the reality is that trains run some of their trip at night, BUT, and its a very BIG BUT, there's a reason that folk take pictures and videos during the day ....when some of the best Railroad photographers have actually proved beyond reasonable doubt trains also run!

                        Eye Candy might not be Run8's main objective but those of us interested in Train Simulators like to see what ALL software has to offer.

                          There is plenty of videos and pictures both in the daylight and night. People don't purposely take photos or videos at night to tick off potential new buyers. Since Run8 doesn't get as much exposure as the eye candy sims. That also includes the popular youtubers out there who a few weeks ago quoted TSW for the console as being "the best train simulator ever". Meanwhile they youtube 100's of other games.

                          As far as YouTube goes their changes this year requiring more than 1000 subscribers to even get ad revenue hasn't helped anyone wanting to contribute videos.

                          As far as screenshots I know for a fact Run8depot (when I was permitted to view) had plenty of screenshots mostly in the daytime. Even the ones I see here mostly daytime.

                          Perhaps not as many people here, or even bothering with Run8 at this time? Lately I see more comedic relief posts than any serious discussion about Run8. But I'm sure they are not purposely trying to annoy me or anyone else either.

                          Thanks

                            Wanted to share some screenshots of when I got Run 8:

                              I ran CSX Q177-13 on my older PC i7 4790K, GTX980, with some mild framerate drops. I REALLY wish Run8 included articulated well and spine cars as well as military equipment loads. Still, I recommend this game. After a few months, I have templates that give me the ability to either run locals (printing is helpful), or, as in this case, conduct a long haul.
