    Any Route, Any Railroad, Any Era. ORTS Edition

    Hi Folks,

    I know RouteRiter does it somehow - do we have a tool that will convert to BMP/TGA from an ACE via Command Line Interface? RouteRiter's ACE to TGA conversion fails if the file is larger...

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks much - I'm pretty happy with how it looks - thrilled that I can make out individual stones on the shoreline... The 2048 DDS DXT1 textures in ORTS seem to have no detectable impact...

    Hi Sean,

    One of the biggest glaring deficiencies we have with ORTS for route builders - is that we don't have any (Procedural/Lofted/Spline) objects - like they do in Trainz or DTG products. It's...

    Hi Randy,

    Thanks for the continued interest.

    Yeah - my latest plan is to convert all Terrtex on my route projects to 2048x2048 - to see if it works well. We're talking thousands of Terrtex...

  11. Why is there no modern simulator that offers "best of both worlds"?

    Hi Folks,

    Much of the reason ORTS may "feel" like an archaic sim - falls upon us as modelers. As a community - we don't take advantage of what we do have. Either we don't have the skills or don't...
