    10. ROUTE EDITOR QUESTIONS

    
    CAN YOU DESIGN YOUR OWN ROUTES OR TRAINS?
    
    
    Yes. A route designer is included in MSTS which can be used to create
    original railroads. A 3D modeling program is required to create your
    own locomotives, cars, or other original objects.
    
    
    
    CAN YOU RECREATE REAL-WORLD RAILROADS USING THE MSTS EDITOR?
    
    
    Yes. Creating real-world routes is not so much a question of the
    program as it is of the human doing the designing. If he or she has
    the skill and resources necessary to produce an accurate reproduction
    of a real route, then it can be done--probably to nearly the same
    degree of detail as in the routes included in the game, if not more
    so.
    
    
    
    CAN YOU IMPORT REAL-WORLD TERRAIN INTO THE EDITOR?
    
    
    Yes. You can import some files (DEM) which contain elevation data
    into the editor for use in creating routes. Many such terrain files
    are available for free over the Internet. This is only a starting
    point, though as it only includes ground elevations.
    
    
    
    I CANNOT GET THE EDITORS TO RUN. WHY?
    
    
    One reason is that the editors require you to be running with a
    screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher. If you're in 800x600 or
    lower none of the editors will work. You'll need to change your
    display settings in the Windows Control Panel.
