    Nothing is perfect Vern. But it is far more perfect than anything by DTG or N3V.

    Very true Mike.

    I actually had a play around with the editor last night, it is very good particularly the height map import. After watching a YT clip...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GbzEb555qE

    It directed me to this site where you can download DEM data in a grayscale format:

    https://terrain.party/

    Not just Transport Fever and Cities Skylines, could probably also use the heightmaps in Open TTD or even Trainz.

    There is certainly huge potential though getting the settings right for the map size vs. terrain height is a bit of a dark art. Tried importing North Wiltshire with different settings and it alternated between the Himalayas and Holland (slight exaggeration!).

    Hahahahahahahaha, i do not have a clue how to use it.

    So you are a couple of steps ahead of me.

    Considering it is not really a driving sim. They have paid a lot of attention to providing the tools that make landscaping and texturing.

    Much easier than the likes of N3V & DTG. With an end result that could be very pleasing map wise.

    This is what they're using:

    Many moons ago I had a new copy of Trainz 2010 and bought TrainzDEM and tried to make the Cardiff Valleys from DEM data. I managed Cardiff Central 6 and 7 through Queen Street around and up to Caerphilly (or maybe Aber), just trackwork, before it became obvious that the embankment the Rhymney line ran on was lumpy as heck in my version. I couldn't get even a reasonable facsimile of Heath High Level's down platform and the massive stairs, and then discovered that the BrisCard route for MSTS existed AND had correct stock to download and run on it. I set about making some activities for it instead, based on the real timetables, and had a much better time.

    I own TrainzDEM but have never been able to understand it. Never mind do anything worthwhile with it.

    I was using Google Earth with Railworks, until they made it pseudo payware.

    But even that wasn't much good, as the map overlays were all modern era.
