It's been a while since I've posted to this forum, mostly because my old computer was too crappy to run Trainz half decently and I lost interest. However, I've recently built my own kick-butt computer and can run TS12 without skipping a beat... even on the most detailed routes. I'm finally getting back into Trainz.
So, that being said, I'm getting back on the route-building scene. Some of you may remember my long-since-dead Florida S-Line Project or Bone Valley routes. Obviously, both of those are gone now and I've lost interest in them since I moved out of Florida. I'm now a Tennessee resident and would like to build a local route. The line I've set my sights on is the CSX KD Subdivision between Corbin, KY and Etowah, TN, running through Knoxville, TN. It's a great line to model that I feel I can do fairly well now that I have a good computer to do it on. Plus there is a TON more content (particularly from the fine folks at Jointed Rail) that I can use to make the route better and build it faster.
Therefore, my first inquiry has to do with TransDEM. I plan on using a DEM to create my route, but have no idea how to use the program. And before I blow 30-40 bucks on the program, I'd like to get some input from everyone here on how easy it is to use. Would it be simple to use for a newbie like me?
Any help from you guys is much appreciated. I look forward to getting back on this forum. You've got a fine group of content-builders that I can learn a lot from, especially since I feel like I'm having to relearn it all. Thanks in advance!
