  1. Natural features like waterfalls, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, etc.

    There is another thing I miss. Would be great to have library of natural features like waterfalls, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, etc. And it would be ideal if feature like stream, river would have functionality of free hand adjustment of curvature so it could be fitted into landscape. This would allow us to plan water features flow along layout.

  2. Export as 3D file for using in SketchUp, Blender, or similar apps

    An export of the entire layout as a standard 3D file format would allow further editing in 3D apps, adding scenery, animate the layout, etc.

  3. The ability to highlight multiple sections of track and create a parallel section of track

    So if you have a highlighted curved section, section with points included or "S" section of multiple track elements. I would be handy to have the ability to create a parallel of it with the options of setting distance apart, exceed minimum and recommended radius warning, follow inside or outside curve of track so as to create parallel track to points radius.

  4. Establishment of minimum required height when one track over another (Over/Under Clearance)

    During design process tracks can be placed over another. Software immediately establish a minimal distance between tracks and asks for slope definition which is allredy defined as function in the RailModeller.

  5. An indication of wiring blocks

    It would be nice to be able to identify wiring blocks, i.e. identify sections of the tracks that are connected electrically. This is very important when planning a layout. Also, the program could identify reverse loops that need special isolation.

  6. A way to force two tracks to connect [Lower Precision, Higher Tolerance]

    Two tracks can be very close but not connected. I would like to be able to select both tracks and ask them to be connected. This should be extended to a whole selection. Sometimes selecting adjacent tracks the mouse moves slightly and a small disconnection appears somewhere. It is very difficult to find it. I would like to be able to select all tracks and say "connect"

  7. the ability to align shapes drawn with the shape tool where you are able to align the tops, centres or bottoms vertically or horizontally.

    I'd like to be able to select multiple shapes and align them but clicking a button. Being able to align the tops, centre or bottom either vertically or horizontally would be great when drawing buildings along the side of a road or track.

  9. The possibility to flip the layout

    After spending hours on perfecting a layout it would be great to be able to flip the layout horizontal or vertical. Basically left turnouts becomes right turnouts etc-

  10. A way to force the track into ideal geometry [Precise Alignment, Zero Tolerance]

    Currently, there's a small error tolerance at each connection. When you move track around, the exact geometry is kept. This means that slowly, over time, the errors can add up. The only way to get rid of all the errors is to manually reconnect each individual track piece. It would be nice if there could be a way to just force all the tracks into their canonical alignment, with zero error. (If there's loops, this might force certain parts of the layout to disconnect. That's ok. It's the whole point. Finding what the actual error is.)

  11. 3D Cuts with metrics of my 3 dimensional plan

    To realize a plan with multiple levels it will be very helpful to show and print cuts of my 3D plan to realize the wooden infrastructure for the rails

  13. Easements / spirals to a specified minimum radius for a specified degree of curvature

    For example, having an easy way to position and connect two perpendicular tangent tracks (a 90° bend) with a smooth spiral in and out of a 24" minimum radius curve.

  14. Export as a 2D vector file - .ai or .cdr or SVG as 1:1 scale use on plotters/laser cutters

    This will make printing/cutting at 1:1 and image manipulation so much easier

  15. Easy way to save / load "track snippets" (Macros / building blocks)

    It would be nice to save/load special combinations of tracks (brace cross roads < Hosenträger-Weichen) etc.

  16. Add a minimum radius highlight feature

    A minimum radius is set in the project properties and whenever a track radius is chosen or flex track is bend below this radius the location is highlighted on the worksheet

  17. Better 3D view with the ability to see rolling stock and basic building shapes instead of flat images

    The available 3D view is not really much help when trying to imagine building placement or the appearance of a populated railway.
    All I am asking for is that the presently flat shapes of buildings (i.e. self drawn rectangles) and rolling stock gain some height in the 3D view.
