BETA TESTER COMMENTS

"......First impression - Astounding!....Second impression - even more astounding!
Easy to use and very believable scenery with very little effort and not too much skill. If I can do it, then someone who knows how to make Surveyor fly will produce a masterpiece......I was amazed at the ease with which I could create an almost photorealistic scene with your waterfalls. A scene comes alive when an active waterfall becomes a focal point.....'" 

"Narrowgauge" Peter Pardoe-Matthews  (Climax creator)

 

.....After trying the animated waterfalls I can say you have created a set of objects that help route creators add an extra realistic dimension to their scenery. The sound and sight of the falling water is something special........

Features
ANIMATION!

Each waterfall contains breathtakingly realistic animated water flow that captured the feel and looks of a real waterfall.

SOUND!

The addition of sounds to each waterfall helps to bring the waterfalls to life. Different sounds have been applied to each waterfall with the sound being selected to match the individual style and type of waterflow.

VARIETY!

There are five (5) different types of waterfall to provide for most modellers requirements. Each type of waterfall comes in seven (8) different textures offering a wide variety of choices.

While the set is primarily intended as a river waterfall, the waterfalls have been designed to be inserted onto your layout from the top point. This will allow the waterfall to be easily lowered into the ground to provide very realistic lake and sea-side waterfalls when used in conjunction with TRAINZ standard water system.

wfallcomp.jpg (41273 bytes)

This feature also means that all the waterfalls can be adjusted in height from major high falls to lower falls as per each modellers requirements.

BETA TESTER COMMENTS

"......positively, absolutely, without doubt the finest scenery I have ever seen in any sim. Superb!
I can now have trains running beside fast running streams in narrow confines. Water that appears to move brings life to a scene, so much better than the water texture in Surveyor......" 

"Narrowgauge" Peter Pardoe-Matthews  (Climax creator)

 

"......For making a realistic river Mikes river splines are the answer. I have tried them and they make the installing of different types of rivers and rapids dead easy......"

"SET-WIDTH" RIVER SPLINES

Using "set-width" splines for rivers allows the most inexperienced modeller to create amazingly realistic rivers in seconds.

To reduce the unrealistic repeating pattern that's common when using a repeating spline we have created each river in 5 different connecting splines including both standard river and rapid splines. By mixing the splines the modeller can achieve unique variations in each of their rivers.

4 different "set-width" river types:

Sunken river

 river1a.jpg (104514 bytes)

 

For embedding down into the ground or between steep hills.

Flat-side river

river2a.jpg (90359 bytes)

This allows the modeller to flow their own terrain into and around the river.

Rocky mountain stream

river1.jpg (134504 bytes)

 

 

A jagged rocky mountain stream.

The transparent water with no river bottom will appeal to the advanced modellers as they can apply their own textures under the water and flow their terrain around the river to provide a variety of river beach effects

"SINGLE RIVER BANKS" AND WATER SPLINES

Where you want real variety then you can use the individual river banks and flat water splines that we've developed. These allow the modeller to add infinite variety to their river widths & river bank height and achieve a greater degree of uniqueness and realism

4 different "single river bank" river types with a variety of "Rapid-water" and "Slow-water" splines

Sunken river

river1-2.jpg (65500 bytes)

With "single river bank" spline set you can close up the rapids and widen the still water

Flat-side river

river2-2.jpg (81279 bytes)

Merge your terrain into the flat river for greater variety and the unique personal touch

Rocky mountain stream

river3-2.jpg (57638 bytes)

By varying the width of the "Rocky Mountain Stream" it can become an ever-changing scenic backdrop as your narrow-gauge logging line follows it down the mountain valley

 

Canyon river 

river4-2.jpg (80356 bytes)

By moving the spline up and down you can add infinite variety, add beaches and much more.

The single side Canyon River can also be used for beach front cliff faces.

RAPID ROCKS AND WATER SPLINES

To add still further to the realism we've also included a set of animated "rapid" rocks.

By placing these randomly in the river or by the waterfalls a further level of reality can be obtained.
