That's why I hate the snakeditor. All is way too simple :/

You are free to think what you want.

I spend my whole week to seek innovations in Generally (I'm on vacation and I can not go to my parents, to see friends ... etc.).

I try to return the game in all senses to see what can do:
Unusual POV, 1 vs 1 races, stairs, an entire track in wood ... I'm trying, since 3 days to develop a [stg] circuit with the purpose of preventing the IA's who comes across.

But if nobody cares, I will keep my next research for me and my girlfriend.

And I am not an artist, I'm an engineer ...

I make lot effort in THINKING tracks, not by painting

No, isnt. At first you need to come with an idea. And no tool will think instead of us. And also an idea is imho the more rated point, not a technique.

Hopefully this tutorial will open some more eyes, that the SnakeDitor isn't just about generating trivial layouts with walls around and red-white kerbs. In good hands it can do great things, to bad hands not tool will help, no matter how good.

I don't use SnakeDitor myself, but this seems like an excellent idea. Good job, I hope your engineer brain will come up with more useful stuff (and maybe a new track with this idea). :bg:

Don't worry, don't worry about it! :)

And feel free all to use it (that's why I posted it!)
If you want to make more details, just add other chains!!!

And thank's to Garbre and his Landpack that give me the idea!

Post Re: How to make railways with Snake Editor
I personally don't use the later version of SD as I find them too complicated, so I use an older version just to make the basic layout of a track.

However this has opened my eyes a little, I previously made railways using Photoshop, and to be fair, it is probably quicker than this so will stick to it, but for other things, like wall placement on ovals (having seen Maciej's curved walls), maybe i should try learn to use a newer version.

I know that it's possible to do it with photoshop, but I don't have it any more, and here with the snake editor, you can in the same time set up the Hmap.

You too! Hi, partner! :D But who says you can't be that two at the same time. I'm happy my landpack inspired you, funny it was not my tracks that gave you ideas :rofl:. I suppose giving the rails some drop shadow effect would not be difficult at all, right?
