I downloaded and installed the latest version of the P&LE Route from the file library. After running an RW_Tools check of the route, I discovered that RW_Tools reported a missing track item (30m turntable) that is located in this folder:
The functional problem is that the misplaced 30m turntable bin file points to the legitimate geometry, animation, and texture files in the original installation position (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\railworks\Assets\Developer\Addon\RailNetwork\Turntable\30mturntable) and if someone installs the route and does not have the original installation, they will get an SBHH message when trying to load the route.
The unknown problem is how RW3 handles multiple copies of the same bin file in different locations but with the same display name. When a route builder that has both installations selects the 30m turntable from the asset list, which one does RW3 install?
My question is why the illegitimate copy was made in the first place.
