Trainz route building question

Post by fakenham1 »

I've been playing around with TANEs route editor for the first time and I must say I'm very impressed with the amount of excellent terrain textures and vegetation. It's also great to finely adjust the terrain. The amount of assets available and their quality is also very good.

Now I have a bit of time spare (and no sign of TSWs editor), I'd really like to have a go at creating a shortish UK route. So, first of all, it is possible to easily import DEM and GE images into the editor? Also, would you recommend buying TRS19 for the purposes of route creation? I believe TRS19 has a few more features. Many thanks.

TransDEM is a third party software to import custom DEM data in Trainz.

TRS19 is revamped version in terms of Graphics to physically based rendering, the technology which TSW uses.
I can not comment about new features since I am newbie to TRS19 :D

Many thanks Digital Rails. Have you tried transdem yourself, just wondering how straightforward it is? I guess you can import GE overlays with it as well, I've just skimmed over the video..

Hi --

I'd suggest joining the discussions over at the N3V Trainz Forums, here:

https://forums.auran.com/trainz/

You will find that the folks over there are generally welcoming and helpful. This site, UKTrainSim, is just a remote backwater as far as Trainz is concerned.

Your question about TRS19. Many of us consider it a massive step forward over all previous versions, in particular the new PBR textures and the TurfFX grass effects. But it can take a while to master for best effect.

I've posted several youtube videos showing what can be achieved in TRS19. Search youtube with "philskene". Compare them to T:ANE.
