I'm currently using RailModeller Express (version 6.0.12) to make sure I can do everything I need to do before buying the Pro edition to design a large Scalextric layout. I'm having difficulty with elevated track. I've followed the guidance in the online video tutorial and in the help file, and I can introduce gradients and elevated sections using e.g. Hornby 00 scale stock. But if I select Custom Scale --> Slot Car --> Scalextric (Sport or Classic), I can't implement gradients - I can only change the elevation of one or more sections, but nothing I do results in a gradient up to / down from that elevation. Is this a known issue, and is the behaviour in RailModeller Pro any different?
Also, assuming there's a way of getting gradients to work for slot car track, is there a way of allowing steeper gradients than the 1:10 which seems to be the current limit? I understand this is steep for railway layouts, but for slot cars it's not unusual to have steeper inclines than this.
At this point grades are restricted to plain tracks and not supported for complex tracks like crossing, switches or multi-lane slot car tracks.
This may change in a future release.
Hope this helps,
Thank you for your quick reply - OK, understood - it would be great to have this implemented - I'll look out for future updates.
