Dynamic tracks with positive angles renders wrong.

Fix is easy, just use -radius for positive angle http://i.imgur.com/cnPtHmo.png

If you don't have route with positive angles in dyntracks, here is one: koniec.org/ccc_dyntracks.zip

goku,
as I understand you have programming skills, you could have a look at DynamicTracks.cs and see if you can provide a patch.

Maybe I missed something, but how do you define dynamic tracks with positive angles? The MSTS editor doesn't provide the ability to do this. So one could argue if it's really a bug.

That explains why it's not come up before and I can relax about this issue for 1.0. Thanks. :lol:

I think that absence of positive angles in dynamic tracks is just a bug in RE. MSTS creates track sections for both negative and positive angles and if you change angle value in .w file and sectionidx in route tsection.dat everything works fine in game and RE.
In my editor it'll be core feature for track placing.

Hi Goku,

Help me understand; By "positive" or "negative" angles do you mean track curve to left or right as viewed along Z axis from the shape pivot?

best,
vince

I thought that MSTS dynamic track only curved one way. To get an opposite curve you make a second piece and flip it?.

That's the normal way. Goku has implemented the dynamic tracks in his route editor with both directions. MSTS knew only left curves.
