I have no idea in making the crossroads in Railclone Pro.
« on: September 06, 2014, 05:20:40 AM »
Railclone Pro is super handy in making the roads. But I have a problem after I make all the roads in the city in making the crossroads ?
The crossings often appear in railways , roads , subways even all kinds of traffics.
I tried to model a segment object of crossroads and put it into the corner node in the Generator 1S. But it was very hard to connect the third road to the crossroad.
Any idea doing this in Railclone Pro ? Or I can just convert all the roads to editable poly and model the crossroads one by one ?

I hope you can give me some workarounds.

Unfortunately RailClone doesn't support joints or intersections. There are not workarounds, except as you pointed, to align the segments manually or editing the mesh.

What a pity. Would you consider adding this function in the future ? This will be of great help for making the roads .

Yes, this feature was proposed many times. But although it would be feasible in a specialized road making tool, it's much more complex to implement in RailClone because the plugin must work with generic meshes, multiple rules, etc.
Also, we have tons of suggestions in the wishlist, so unfortunately not all can be done.

Hi Miguel,

Well, as mentioned few weeks ago my colleague Paul: "I'm afraid at the moment is isn't possible to automatically generate junctions using RailClone. This feature has been on the wishlist for a long time, but unfortunately it involves several technical challenges, futhermore RailClone is designed to be a generic tool, so we cannot assume certain shortcuts that would be used in a specialized road making tool. Genuinely we would like to dedicate some time to this problem, but at this point there are too many features in the to-do list, and not all of them can be implemented. We'll continue to look into it."

In the mean time you might find a response from Klonsemann in following "Road" thread helpful.

Best regards,

Miguel Mendes
