    Swap out the pine trees for some that are little more fitting for the New England region versus the western United States pines. Added in some more birch trees and a few maples as well. Really need to figure out how to fix the terrain "paint" for the beach.

    I moved the forest line further down the line, but need to tweak that a bit away from the tracks.



    A little video..

    Hopefully this time around, this project I can release!

    I apologize, I feel like I am beating a dead horse with the Sebago area, but did some more edits, path wise for hiking/walking that is visible on the maps, as well as more tree laying. I did forget the hillside in one photo which you will see being bare, except a few pines.

    Anyways, extended the ROW paint works further down the line as well.

    A little ballast run around and "dropping" ballast. Note, Sebago Siding can handle 15-23 cars, depending on the length.

    I am actually really enjoying how quick and easy TSRE makes things be when it comes to route building. So much quicker than the old school RE from MSTS.

    Hi Shawn,

    I've spent a massive amount of time painting TERRTEX.

    Just a couple quick pointers in case you're not aware - are you "Auto Painting" your ROW where you can paint miles and miles with a single mouse click ?

    If unfamiliar - see here - you can paint ROW, road bases, and object foundations with this technique:
    https://www.trainsim.com/vbts/showth...OW-in-seconds&

    If you want to paint straight lines - like parking lots - crop fields - even dirt roads - you can use the "Ruler" in TSRE - it's an object you can place down that's visible in TSRE but not in ORTS - and you can "Auto Paint" the TERRTEX under the Ruler - you can leave the Ruler in place for future reference - placing down as many as you want - or delete them after you paint what's desired.

    More here:
    https://www.trainsim.com/vbts/showth...paint-TERRTEX&

    I'd recommend using at least 1024x1024 sized TERRTEX for best results.

    Have fun...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Thanks for that! That actually makes it even more of a breeze! though some spots do deserve to be messy looking. Nothing is perfect in the railroad world. Especially during the 1980's, when most shortline railroad mainlines were covered with cinders and ash versus ballast.

    Hi Shawn,

    Understood - just wanted to insure you knew what tools are available.

    I’ve used up to three layers of textures to paint my ROW - each layer on top getting progressively more narrow.

    You can do an entire route in an evening or two - where the same task would take weeks with Mosaic...

    Regards,
    Scott

    So Shawn,

    Do Christopher and I need to put Maine Central back on our list?

    While being 1980's and got the GP7's and GP38's in Harvest Gold & Green, I won't turn down a set with Maroon & Gold, and Green & Gold F units, E units, RS units, and GP7's of the 1950's.
