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......"

"Mate" (Alan Campbell)

The full river set  includes:

bullet

"set-width" river splines

bullet

"Single-river-bank" river splines

bullet

"Rapid" rocks

bullet

"Flat Water" splines (for use with "single-river-bank" splines)

"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.

river4-8.jpg (61356 bytes)

 

river4-3.jpg (65927 bytes)

 

river4-4.jpg (70679 bytes)

By widening the variable width river and you can create river gorges to run your trains through with amazing realism

RAPID ROCKS AND WATER SPLINES

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

There are 4 different rock types with animated water flowing around the rocks and an attached river water sound. Each rock type comes in 5 different rock textures giving a total of 20 different "rapid" rocks to select from.

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