    Hi Chris,

    I think I can read TSM files - what format will Blender accept - I have a ton of export formats available to me... When I model for Flight Sim - I export in DirectX "*.x" format and convert from that with Flight Sim tools...


    OBTW: I just updated my old 19" 4:3 monitor to 32" 6:9 - OMG - the screen real estate available for modeling is absolutely fantastic - I don't know why I waited so long... I'm free - LOL...

    Regards,
    Scott

    That could be the intermediate format translation tool I'm looking for. Import .dst into free version of 3DCrafter and then export as one of three or more formats (Collada [dae] preferred; 3ds, or fbx) into Blender. Got to test in the near future to see what works the best.
    Thanks Scott

    After a typical MSTS RE scare, rebuilding of Westernport continues. Pushing east toward Keyser.

    Indeed. What a route. The track just looks so right. And so do the hills.

    So if you are just about to Keyser, does that mean you are almost "done?" Can it be?

    Hi Folks,

    I plotter the route on Google Maps - yep - I think Keyser is the end of the line for now from what Chris mentioned...

    The Blue is Chris’s Route - the Red is the full Sandpatch all the way to Connelsville...



    Regards,
    Scott

    My plan right now is as follows:

    1. Keyser yard + about 1 mile towards Cumberland will be the 'end of the line' for now

    2. Will offer an alpha download WITH NO INTERACTIVES for people to test and comment. Hopefully I can distribute with basic trainsets included, so it's a fully functioning route without the need for MSTS

    3. Do alpha fixes - don't know how long that will potentially take. This will lock down trackwork.

    4. Add interactives to route and release as beta

    5. Hopefully, distribute v1.0 with beta input included

    And Scott has the route nailed

    Chris, how soon is your initial alpha release? I'm asking because we (BLWZT) have a set of B&O equipment about 3/4 done. Do we need to light a fire under us to move it along?
