First of all, congratulations for this plugin.
I am working for a driving simulation software company (realtime application) and we are using 3dsmax daily. We are intending to buy Railclone soon but I would like to have some answers to the following questions.
1 - A geometry object can be added as additionnal segment . But will it be possible to add in the future a 3dsmax container just for duplication purpose, not for modeling (like the traffic lights objects in the first demo video). I understand well that a container, as it is an "extended" external reference, can't be bended, merged with other segment based on mesh, and so on,.... But It could a great addition, especially when this kind of data may be exported for a realtime rendering engine.
2- In charge of creating and managing city and country areas, I would like to know if there is a plan in the future to manage intersections beetween several Railclone objects to easily build roads intersections (north american intersections or european roundabouts) for example.
3 - In the same scope of question #2, is there a plan to connect roads created with Railclone objects to a terrain mesh (not the native 3dsmax terrain object but simply an editable mesh/Poly object) and keep it updated.
I know these questions are far from the current goal of Railclone but I think that this powerful tool could become a great starting point for an infrastructure road (and more) editor.
