"This is fun !"

August 26, 2004  |  By usarian

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Been using this for a few weeks now. A few idiosyncracies but basically very easy to use and actually fun in itself ! My 6 year old was able to lay track with no help and has now mastered the other features. Oviously the traffic lights and engine sounds go down very well with him but its also educational as it teaches problem solving and helps him think geometrically.

Addition of labels on the layouts is very useful since some sections do look the same and also it can be difficult to tell which curve is which just looking at them. Glad the power-base has now been sorted, this was a serious flaw.

Seems to be accurate; I've layed out 107 sections and the software agrees with the floor !

I can recommend this. It probably won't suit the serious enthusiast because it only allows two lanes but its fun to use, saves a lot of time and lets you design layouts you'd probably never get round to without it. With the dollar worth so little at the moment for those of us in the UK its a bargain at less than the cost of the cheapest car.

What's new in version 1.3.1
  • The C8202 section was wrongly configured with the angle 22.5 deg. (Thanks to Franco in Italy for spotting this). To pick up the corrected angle of 45 deg you will need to remove the existing C8202 from your section collection and then add it back.
  • The scale slider was not working in version 1.3, this is now fixed
