    One follow-up:

    If I bump up the resolution, do I need to edit the .s or .sd files as well?
  6. Improving resolution of file library buildings

    I've downloaded several of the buildings in the file library, and have poked around their contents.

    This turned out to be the case.

    The Dakota division route profile book also includes the Milwaukee Road's mainline, and I was able to find signal notations there.

    I'm not sure how to read them,...

    Sorry I keep adding new topics...

    As I'm rebuilding a stretch of abandoned route, all of the signals are long gone.

    What resources--if any--are there for recovering the original signal...

    Route interconnects

    Hey,

    So the Milwaukee Road route that I'm working on terminates in a small yard in Rapid City that has a single track at the west end that connects with the old CNW (now RCP&E) yard.

    Hi,

    I've written a script that converts MSTS world files into KML and ESRI shapefiles that can be used in other GIS apps, as well as uploaded to the USGS National Atlas download client.

    It is...

    Here's an update...

    So, the .5M USGS geoTIFFs are embedded in a UTM grid which DEMEX does not recognize (when you load one of these geoTIFFs in DEMEX, it reads the easting & northing as longitude...

    I actually have your Milwaukee Road section from Mobridge west! (Did you know 'Mobridge' is actually named after the Milwaukee Road's bridge over the 'mighty Mo'?)

    I'm an inveterate tinkerer, and I honestly don't mind fiddling with stuff to get it to work.

    So ... it took me until earlier this afternoon to realize that I don't need to use the "Load Heights" tool in TSRE5.

    And because TSRE5 is MSTS compatible, I could create a route in TSRE5 and then...

    I actually went poking around in the TSRE5 source code and found a couple files (geotiff.h & geotiff.cpp) that suggest that functionality was at least anticipated for files covering 1 degree square,...
