huh.gif Today, I built a route using MSTS's Geometry Extractor. I clicked the new route button, typed C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator\ROUTES\ in the source template textfield, and filled out the rest of the info. After I created the quadtree and did the rest of the route processes (Still in the extractor). I went to the path where the route was put, and it's not there! But yet, it still remembers my route in the Route Editor. Please help me find a way so when I create a new route, the route folder will be there. ex. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator\ROUTES\Southern_California

It's because I want to add more shapes & textures.

Oh and by the way, When I was building the route(not finished), using scalerail, is there such thing as a SR track that has two tracks with a junction, two tracks with a |\| or a |/| in the middle of the track.

It appears your OS is Win7 or Vista. Did you install MSTS using the procedure at Steam4Me.com?

Did you see if perhaps it was placed in the default path of other OSs?

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Tran Simulator\Routes\(Your Route Name)\Tiles

Well, actually, when I installed MSTS the first time I did not have this issue. But, after something strange happened to my computer, I did a refresh, and reinstalled MSTS, then this issue took place. So, that might get you somewhere. rolleyes.gif

Yes, I realize this, but did you see if the program inadvertently placed the files in the path I specified above?

Not that I've ever come across. Crossovers are pretty easy to build -- I've got them in 10D, 6D, 3D, and 5D...

A pair of the 10D's and 5D's can be attached to each other without any other track required; the 6D and 3D will need a short section of track in between them depending on the spacing of your track (yard vs. mainline)...

I had built one like that some time ago, but kept running into node issues so the idea was scrapped.

Then you did not follow the procedure as it has you installing MSTS outside of Program Files(86)

The reason is how Windows Vista, 7 and 8 protect the Program Files and Program Files (86) folders.

Go to your C:\ folder and do a search for your route name file.

Hint: What is the content in the "yourRouteName/path " folder?

If you know how to build a route, why do you not know that a path is required to drive a train in MSTS?
