    Smile ConBuilder 6.0 with Test Tools for ORTS


    The ConBuilder team is pleased to announce
    ConBuilder Version 6.0.
    Now with testing tools for ORTS.

    New tests include:
    • Tests for ORTS 3dCabs - Just like the test of the CabView line, ConBuilder will test the ORTS3DCabFile line to verify the presence of the referenced file in the CABVIEW3D folder or produce an error message if the file is not found.
    • Test for ORTSFreightAnims Shape files - When an ORTSFreightAnims section is used in an ENG or WAG file, ConBuilder will test to verify the presence of the referenced Shape file in each Shape line or produce an error message(s) if the file is not found.
    • Name line test for double quotes - It has been found that when a typo produces double quotes ("") in an engine Name line it causes the ORTS menu to display "<Load Error: eng-filename> in the list of Drivable Locomotives. When ConBuilder finds this typo it will produce an error message with the path and filename of the ENG file so that the typo can be fixed.


    Tests for other ORTS features are planned for future versions.

    Other New Features:

    • The maximum number of items in a consist has been increased to 250.


    Those who have already purchased ConBuilder can upgrade from downloads posted on the ConBuilder Support Forum. (PM me if you have trouble logging into the forum.)

    Those considering purchase of ConBuilder can get more information at www.conbuilder.com or by clicking on my signature graphic.
