Hi all,

Im new to the Railworks community and have been modeling routs in Trainz since the start.

I am now moving more into Railworks, and trying to learn as much as I can and also use what ever knowledge I have obtained through Trainz to start modeling in Railworks, though there doesn't seem to be too much in common.

To the point....

I just bought the payware version of Scailrail for Railworks and am very impressed with the detail of the rail, ties and ballast over the default Railworks.

When I am laying track in the editor, all sections of track are visible. But if I were to save and exit the editor, close Railworks, then start it back up again, go back into the route I am editing and edit or drive on the route, ALL or SOME sections of Scalerail are invisible.

Also, some of the switches seem to render to look like the default Railworks track and not look like Scalerail.

I am running Railworks 3 (Train Simulator 2012)

Could the version of Railworks be the issue or am I missing an update?

I have searched all over and could not find anyone with a similar problem. I have even deleted and re-installed Scalerail 3 times.

Any light shed on this issue as soon as possible would be more than appreciated as I have been very eager to start designing a new route!

Thanks in advanced,

Jordan

I haven't heard of any issues. Can you post a couple of screen shots?

Cheers!

The "Switches vs ScaleRail" look correct - slightly darker, but not with the same 3D appearance as the regular track (it's the way RW handles them). The floating ones and the disappearing track is a mystery, however.

Cheers!

The issue with the switches looking different than the track is one of the things that really irks me about RW. mad.gif

Yes, I would prefer a snap-to solution using one-piece turnouts.

Cheers!
