  • Adding Railway Lines

    Anyone know if it's possible to add railway lines in TGC2019 Designer?

    I'm sure I've seen railway lines on some of the published courses but can't for the life of me find out how to add these via Create Surfact or Create Object menus...

    Guys probably build them out of fences or telephone poles, the maniacs.

      Thanks Chad,

      that's what I assumed too but wanted to check I wasn't missing an easier way before giving that a go.

      (would have been typical of me to spend days crafting some dodgy railway track made out of bits of old stick then later on someone tells me 'you just select this...')

      seems like quite an obvious thing not to have though when we have yachts and farm animals...

          Hard to believe they don’t have farm silos

            We got the big "shed" update a while back. Maybe the collaboration with farm simulator 2019 is coming soon.

                Was looking to add flags but couldn't see a creative way to do it. Any ideas. Spent last night looking at sail boats to shrink them and partially burying them but nothing seem to fit.

                  Tried experimenting with light posts and ad board signs.

                  It kinda works but in the end just scrapped the idea.

                Ugh been trying to do the railway lines with the iron railed fences and walls for sleepers - looks good for one small section but an absolute bloody nightmare doing it for long sections across different elevations. Like water all over again!

                Who needs a railway anyway. So what if the golf club has a railway! lol

                  Very easy really you select low brick wall and just connect them together then use steps as the railway sleepers.(a lot easier now with the connect button) Not perfect but does the job just need your land to be flat really.

                    How do you space the steps so evenly

                    If you use the low brick walls they just give you a little space to place them,just randomly went along and placed them down.For same effect for the rails you could use one of the bridges they connect just as easy

                  Any good ideas for railroad ties at ground level - for example bordering around bunkers (pic)?

                  The difficulty is that the ties need to be level with uneven grass angles so I'm wondering if I'm limited to surface treatments.

                    Sections of wooden retaining walls? I don't know if you can rotate them vertically, though.

                      I think my best bet is using a tall and skinny cart path brush to render the ties. Cart path ties won't look as good as using the mulch brush but the mulch surface won't give the expected bounce. All a compromise I suppose.

                      If anyone has any better ideas LMK! PB Dye Golf Club coming soon...

                    Unfortunately I can't get a small enough brush of cart path to appear. When you reduce a brush to the size needed nothing is rendered on screen during the click.

                    I have to increase the size of the brush considerably to even get a point of cart path to show up, so this idea is gone now too. Not sure if there is a workable solution, I may have to forgo the ties, but if anyone else has an alternate idea gimme a shout.

                      Try burying bench seats so that only the tops of the backrest are above ground. I do this to make landscape timbers.

                        Good idea for flat timbers. Unfortunately most of my timbers need to be placed (vertically) on 45 degree(ish) grass hills which means the exposed timber itself needs to be sloped with the ground. Unless I can tilt benches I'm still stuck I think.

                        Thanks though!
