    Default Creating Narrow embarkement with TSRE

    HI To ALL

    Is it possible to create a narrow embarkement with TRSE, I tried reducing the width of embarkement by changing the parameter of SIZE to 1 in the Terrain options but nothing happened the terrain is not attached to the track

    IF I use SIZE as 2 in Terrain the embarkement is very width expanding the embarkement over areas were I need to maintain flat...

    I am trying to have something like the picture... a embarkement high 32 ft width 82 ft

    I will appreciate any suggestion...

    Hi...

    I'm no expert - but - I think you would better served by a berm system that fits under the track... I know the Tristate route project has most of their track on berms and Rick's Monon uses a bunch as well... I don't know if there are any publically available berm systems though... In all my years - I've never seen the terrain mesh conform to the shape in your illustration...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Norbert Rieger did a system of berms available in the FL here. I've made a set for my routes as well, but I have yet to release it. Maybe I should one of these days

    Well that's just how TSRE embankments work at the moment. Your best option is to use embankment objects placed under your tracks. I would suggest using db tracks nr embankment set available here

    http://msts-tiefbau.de/pages/Bahntrasse1.html

    Each piece matches xtracks and default track pieces profile, so placing them with TSRE is very simple. You just have to copy the position & rotation of the trackpiece, place the corresponding embankment shape, and paste the position & rotation of the trackpiece on the shape

    Berms are your best bet. I have a set available for a $10 donation on digitalRails.com which are made to go under Scalerail, but could go under a lot of other track systems as well.

    I'd also recommend using WorldFileHacker (also available on that website) to auto-place the berms. It will work with my berms or Norbert's, and I can assist with creating the crossreference file needed to associate individual berms to track sections.

    Disclaimer: 100% of all sales on DigitalRails.com go towards preservation and operations at places like the Illinois Railway Museum.
