Timetable Editors are on the way!
response to many requests, we have been busy developing Editors to
enable customers to create and edit timetables to run on our
simulations. The first of these, for Portcreek Junction, is now in the final stages of testing and will be available within the next few weeks.
Please note that the Editors will
ONLY work with Registered copies of the simulations - they cannot be
used with the demos. If you therefore would like to create your
own timetables, but have not yet purchased a full license for
Portcreeek, you should do so before purchasing a Timetable Editor.
Please keep an eye out for further announcements over the coming days.
Our next completely new simulation will
be Crow Nest Junction - not the recently-closed plywood wonder, but the
former L&Y box of 91 working levers.
We are also working on an "Advanced"
version of Exeter West which includes permissive working and a much
wider variety of traffic including Pilot Working to Central "B",
wrong-line working to and from Exeter Goods etc. This version has been
on test in the real Exeter West box over the past 12 months which has
uncovered a few issues which are currently being worked on. Because it
is only suitable for very experienced operators, this simulation will
be made available as an "add-on pack" to customers who have already
purchased a full licence for the standard version of Exeter West.
Target release date is April
Improved user interface.
We have updated the simulation screen to allow the Train Information windows to be resized by dragging the side and top borders.
This long-requested feature enables users the flexibility to choose to
allocate more or less screen-space to the simulation display -
particularly helpful for those with unusually low, or high resolution
monitors. The arangement also allows the simulation to operate fully
even when the window is "restored down" - particularly usefull if you
wish to run the simulation whilst also displaying the "help" files,
Train Register, Bell Code or Locking Information at the same time. All
future simulations will include this feature and existing ones will be
updated in future versions.
Our Portcreek Junction has been already
been updated with this feature - please download and install it to see
the effect. Remember that if you have purchased a License, all your
registration details are preserved when you update.
Licences for our
Demo versions of all of our
simulations are available for free
