Just come across is wonderful program and I like it a lot

but one major question - there a lot of Hobby track missing from you list as well as station sections etc

If I buy the program will all these missing parts appear so I can use them to finish my design?




Hi Mark,

I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'll try to answer it anyway ;)

1. If you buy the software, the limit to use only 50 parts will be lifted. For the rest, the software remains just the same. No missing parts will just appear!
2. If you buy the software, all updates will be free for version 3. With a license for version 3, the upgrade to version 4 will be free as well, including all its updates and patches (this version is not yet planned, so in practice, you'll have at least a year of free updates/upgrades).
3. If you find that parts missing, please let us know, and, if you could, give us the part numbers. We will then try to find the exact geometry, and add them to our release planning. We make no promises here, but normally the parts will be included within one or two version updates.

Don't know if this more or less answers your questions. If not, please let me know!

if I overlooked anything hidden in a menu some where can you please tell me how to find these pieces please

Hi again,

Thanks for your clarification.

Part R610 is in the 00 Hornby Standard Track library. You might have missed it because of the drawing scale on the button.
Level crossing R636 is missing indeed. We'll add that one soon.

For the other parts: we're currently working on a way to draw all the other elements that are not really track, but rather structures and such.
However, for that you need to be a bit more patient because we need a bit of time to get it done.

Thanks again for your list!
