    Hello Cade!

    Any Frisco-based route is a welcomed addition.

    Are you using Digital Elevation Models (DEM) on your route? If not, you will lack the prototype's terrain setting.

    Very nice!

    Was the 5% grade on the prototype, or are you having to "imagineer" the track, account of lack of data, and that's just how it worked out?

    Have you tried using VT Builder since the USGS has again changed their tif format? I have read VT can on longer convert current USGS tif's into a DEMEX usable format.

    Found it/fixed it.

    It was in the tile ceiling/floor depth menu. Adjusted the tile to a lower floor and all is well. Haven't a clue why this particular tile had a different floor setting.
