RailGen Update?

Post by Dexter on Thu Apr 19, 2012 10:20 am

Hello folks,

I got an idea on improving the railgen utility... I was considering making it compatible with the Bender uitility and I think I have come to an conclusion. I will make RailGen, that will only create a straight rail - but the segmented way, so it will be easily bendable with the bender. Options would be all three gauges, wire on/off, third rail and fourth rail. No switches at this time, it will be enough work on its own.

Ideas?

A new rail genrator sounds like a good idea...

But in designing it , please can you consider making it so that it can generate pointwork for different gauges?


Also there a set of GWR Tables that may be of interest, somewhere online

Make sure, that if you bend the rail more, then the number of vertices/faces will go up as well.
(Not to confuse how long you want the rail)

No, the vertex number depends on the number of sections other than the radius.

No because otherwise, we'd end up having 'sharp' rails.
