Thread: scenery design program

    Default scenery design program

    Hello I am wanting to design my own vehicles including animation. I have windows 7 so I am not sure where to start. Any help on inexpensive programs would be nice. Thank you

    Blender is free and open source and will do anything you'll want to do with trains. Or just about anything as far as that goes.
    Lots if tutorials and help on the forums.

    Agree. Blender. Anything else is very old and/or unmaintained or very expensive.

    If you want to keep up with the latest, Windows 10 is a free upgrade from 7.
    You can keep everything in place or do a clean install. I done six or seven upgrades and haven't lost anything.
    I really liked Win7 but I love 10.

    Version 2.8 or later. It's a bit less user hostile than previous versions and has lots of beginner tutorials on youtube.
