  • Incase you may be interested, I found a helpful tutorial that could possibly suit your needs with regards to optimizing and compiling your propper train track models. [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_CGmelxveQ"]Propper Hammer Modeling tutorial - Optimization [/URL] As you have already mentioned, yes, compiling the brushwork into smaller sections would definitely help. I did this with some fencing for a project I had going on a while ago. This prevented an assortment of model errors from rising. Best of luck with your project!

  • Don't have the track models casting shadows. They are only low on the ground, so their shadow isn't very important at all and you'd be wasting VRAD time for something so trivial.

It doesnt have a specific real world location though.

  • [QUOTE=oskutin;31327043]I vote custom! In mountains![/QUOTE] Go jump in a well and call me titty king, no! I want a snow map. There has never been a snow-themed train map made fully :frown: It should be flat, too, with two tracks at least. Then I could run my successfully running hl2 train around it like I can with drumdevils' map :3:
  • Wondering how to mix high-speed rail elements with street-based systems in the next map, I was quite disappointed that the resources and time were not available to have a street-level Helsinki track in gm_cityrail. It would not be fun to require instantly braking as you switch from high-speed elevated rail to a street, should slower tracks be left out of the next also? I made a quick concept of the sort; [img]http://www.1337upload.net/files/0100_3659.JPG[/img] [editline]e[/editline] No img_thumb tags?

  • Is there anything that can be done about the way trains jump a little bit when they go over switches.
  • [QUOTE=matey9;31380253]Is there anything that can be done about the way trains jump a little bit when they go over switches.[/QUOTE] It depends on the track width.
  • [QUOTE=GameDev;31381384]It depends on the track width.[/QUOTE] Another funny thing about track width, though somewhat irrelevant thing about rail widths is how badly corners and bends can mess up the actual width between the rails. The harder a corner gets, the closer the rails get -- this is typically overlooked because Source physics aren't perfect, but several times I was forced to fix it.
