    Road shapes and the tsection file

    I noticed the current tsection file no longer contains the definitions for the trackshape section. I wanted to review that before building some roads that are slightly arched, not flat. IOW the...

    Last year I downloaded a bunch of DEM files from the national map and using an open source program called qGIS converted the raster image I had downloaded to a (geo)tif format that DEMEX knows. No...

    WRT corrupt .tdbs... anyone who has been around for more than a couple of years knows already that many, many routes were destroyed by some screwup in the .tbd. IMO the primary cause was the lack...

    Monogame is mostly an internal technical change because Microsoft killed a library OR was using. Because MG is alive it opens the door to OR migrating to a newer version of DirectX. If that occurs...

    I could do 2-3X as much in Sketchup compared to TSM about a week after trying it. I've never looked back.

    PRR 133lb rail profile.

    AFAIK within OR, the Super-elevation only applies to dynamic track, but i wouldn't bet as much as a nickle on that.

    No. What MSTS does is reduce the mesh resolution from 8m to 16m whenever the terrain mesh is further than a specific distance away. Offhand I don't know what that distance is but I suspect it is...

    Well over a decade ago.

    Cal pushed the limits on realism and in the MSTS days it was a push too far. Everybody crabbed the fps were too slow. The problem was largely that he had set the display...
