  • Hi everyone


    I have just started process of constructing a Swing Bridge I saw in a satellite image in the Chicago area. After some more research I found these images on a website.


    As the images below show its just starting I am using array and mirror modifiers so at present I am just working with a very small section. I dont have any physical dimensions to work with I am attempting to get the model to look and feel right.

    the question I would like assistance with is do I need to construct the rails and plates as many bridges within EEP select the rail style you are using previously. and if so how is this accomplished within HomeNos.




    PS as jwalt2065 mentioned yesterday some sub sections might be useful within the English Speaking corner as it is slowly growing

    Possibly a few sub sections "Installation of EEP and Models " Track and road construction Signals and LUA Texture section and Blender and HomeNos. :ae_1:

  • Hi everyone

  • I require some direction if possible .. I am Making a swing Bridge .. I have imported it from blender into HomeNos the bridge rotates on the axis as intended. I now get an error when set reference points .. the swing bridge is 52M in length -720 is the first -x reference point and 4480 is the second I get an error here in HomeNos showing the wrong value(-2147.483648) but the reference points display correctly on the model . I have tried to change the values so the -4480 is the first -x value but this does not display correctly on the model .


    I carried on and imported into EEP .. and it wont display a track .. but the 2d image is showing a track.


    What am I doing wrong ??

    There is a track (as you can see in 2D), but it is invisible (as you can see in 3D).

    This is a very old feature of EEP, that tracks in moving objects (such as your bridge) are invisible by default. As far as I know, you can't change that. But you can include some more vertices and triangles into your model that look like a track.

    thank you for your response Benny .


    So I was reading the wiki pages ... (trying to) .. I did see you could assign tracks but as you say it is moving object, so by default it is invisible. I assumed i was doing something wrong when i got the wrong reading in the reference points.


    But thank you again :) .. i will try and construct a track on my bridge :)

    Hello Craig,

    this is a known but not fixed bug in the User-Version of the HomeNos.
    It was almost reported at the Bugtracker.
