Thread: New to Route building

  1. #1

    Default New to Route building

    After being with MSTS and Open rails route building thought Id try to take a stab at Trainz. Ive looked though various threads about DEM importing is there a easy tool to use for terrain from real world DEM data like we have for MSTS. Don't want to jump through 'a million' hoops just to grab and use data. Thanks!

    Transdem.

    There is a learning curve involved but the programme comes with several tutorials you can walk through to grasp the basics. The main danger is, once up to speed, you will be extracting and creating so many real world locations, "just to see what it looks like", you will never actually build on and finish anything!

    Vern -Thanks I'm debating 1:1 scale or have real terrain for "HO" freelance road. Wanting to base upon the Chicago and Northwestern , MIlW grain and mainlines of Iowa the route building tools look to be so much easier to use then MS/ Open rails are.

    Curious: Is Transdem usable in a general sense (can be used to create terrain for MSTS), or is it proprietary to Trainz?

    Two versions buddy, MSTS & Trainz.

    Not sure but i think it supports Zusi as well.

    Can Google marker files be imported to Trainz? Im not able to find anything along those lines in searching.
