Ability to set the maximum grade/elevation
Currently the maximum elevation is set to 10%, hard coded in the SW. For rack rail it is no problem to have it to 35%.
Would be nice when it is possible to set the maximum elevation by the user, 10% for example is already 'a lot' for standard tracks.
Having two limits would be the way to go:
1: The current 10% that can be set by the user, when you go over it, you get a warning, not a message that it is not possible.
2: The upper limit, for example 35%, where you get the message that it is not possible.
thanks for your input. It's on the to-do list but unfortunately resources for a small project like ours are limited.
"Max. elevation per layout will be added soon." was stated November 2016.
I want to model Rackrail, which slope goes up to 35% ..
Please add this 10% maximum to Preferences or add some Override button in the dialogbox.
Max. elevation constraint will be added as an optional setting for each layout.
All layout constraints will appear as messages or warnings and won't prevent users from 'violating' them.
Max. elevation per layout will be added soon.
Grades >10% - which is already very steep, usually 4-5% shouldn't be exceeded - are a problem since at this much inclination tracks are starting to get significantly shorter (as viewed from above) and we cannot guarantee the connections between tracks make sense any more..
