What's new in RailModeller Pro

Version 6.2.3:

The latest maintenance update 6.2.3 improves some aspects of the JMRI export (DCC), extends the optional mouse coordinate display to also show Z coordinates for the height profile view and delivers some bug fixes.

RailModeller Pro 6.2 delivers features repeatedly requested by our users, including

  • The option to terminate any open track connection with a bumper/buffer stop,
  • An optional mouse cursor coordinate display,
  • Exporting to a layered PSD (Photoshop) bitmap image with dedicated image layers for each layer in the track plan,
  • New track base textures for the 3D view and the option to use no texture at all,
  • Improvements to flex tracks such as smoother curves for parametric curved flex tracks,

In addition this update includes a number of cosmetic improvements to the Community Layouts browser for track plans uploaded by fellow model railroad hobbyists, as well as numerous updates and new additions to the libraries bundled with the app.

Sorry, Apple allows developers to set a single, global price tier.
Our app currently uses tier 40, which (currently) equals USD 39.99 or GBP 38.99 or about 39 EUR in most countries of the EU.

A complete list of all currencies is available at e.g. http://www.equinux.com/us/appdevelopers/pricematrix.html

MacUpdate says $25.99 to purchase and the app store has it at $29.99. What gives?

US$25.99 was the introductory price to promote the new app and allow customers to upgrade to the new app.
The app is now back to its regular pricing - try RailModeller Express for our free edition!

This new version (5.03) is a very good, speedy Update to the former V4. Even it lacks some features of 4 till today - the author promised to change that with future releases - it has some nice improvements, like several open tracks, insert parallel tracks with specified distance, adding multiple parts with one clik, UI improvements and so on. Overall, no need to switch to Scarm anymore. First I want to give only 4 Stars, because of App store only, but it wouldn’t be fair.

I have been using RailModeller for a while, and as a Mac user, it gives me everything I need to plan my layout. There are many advanced features (3D view, helixes, levels) that require some experience. However, designing the basis layout is extremely easy thanks to the extensive track libraries. In my case (N-Scale, Europe), I have always found the pieces I was looking for. Thanks for bringing model railroad planning to the Mac!

I decided to get back into Model Railroading with a carefully thought out plan to avoid a "mission impossible." I choice my modeling subject, historical period, and scale strategically so that I could actually end up with a working model railroad. Having given myself a fighting chance, RailModeller was absolutely essential in ruling out all sorts of track layouts that would have ultimately been a dead-end. By trying out many combinations in the computer, I managed to narrow down to an arrangement that fit the space where the railroad would occupy. I tried several possible railroad designs. All this was only possible because of RailModeller. After getting started on my model railroad, the best made plans - still didn't work out. What started out as a logging camp and associated railroad eventually evolved into a museum that represented an earlier logging camp. RailModeller once more was invaluable in making the changes to the layout that was in progress. My layout is still not finished, but at least it has purpose and thanks to RailModeller, the design was tested before I started putting track on the benchwork. For the first time I have a reasonable model railroad and I very much thank the developers of RailModeller for this.

Is there a way with this program to have it automatically fill in the gap? What I means is, I layout a section of track that almost completes a circuit, then the program automatically figures out what track to add, and how, in order to connect the ends. If not, is there a program out there that can do this? Preferably on the Mac, but Windows or Linux would be possible if need be.

I think the "close gaps with pieces of sectional tracks" feature claims to to exactly what you are looking for?

This is a top notch program for designing sectional track plans using a large variety of libraries in all scales. The 3D view of the finished track plan is a especially nice feature. Upgrades and improvements are in the works for the future and will add numerous enhancements to this program. Highly recommended.
