Route Markers

Unread postby BDWorkshop » Sat Feb 27, 2016 8:39 pm

I was wondering if I can use the RW Tool to remove an old set of route markers and create a new list?

The markers are all included in the \Networks\Tracks.bin file for a route. They are included in blocks of code starting like :-

<Network-cTrackMarkerProperty d:id="480583224">

and ending
</Network-cTrackMarkerProperty>

There are a lot of different types of markers, scenario, platform, etc and each block of code is quite large, so trying to remove them all in a large route would be a lot of work and unless you were very careful would render the Tracks.bin file unusable.

The route that I'm working on uses my own templet that works off the Horseshoe Curve as it's templet. So not only are all the HSC markers there, the markers from my last project are also showing. I'd like to find a way to delete all those markers and create a new list for my current project.

These are the type of markers that allow you to jump from one spot to another in the editor.

I did take a look at the Track.bin file. Wow, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack! Is there anyway to narrow down the search?

I see now that there is very little I can do. I was able to get rid my old route markers, but it looks like HSC route markers are there to stay. That is unless I want modify the HSC files which is not worth the time and effort.

Ahh do you have a Asset file for the route somewhere that contains a folder called RouteMarkers? In there should be a bin file and a dcsv file. The dcsv should contain a series of lat-longs with name that are the markers so you can jump around the route. Is that what you are looking for?

Yes I found the asset file that I thought I deleted a while ago.

What I was looking for was is what Mike pointed me to in the Track.bin file, but I now see in this case that the information he speaks of is not there.

There is confusion here because the word "marker" has two meanings in TS.
1- Route markers, of which there are 2 kinds:
- GPS markers
- Named markers (this is what you want)

2- Track markers, of which there are several kinds:
- destination markers,
- scenario destination markers,
- platform markers,
- etc.

Route markers are in csv files, which you can edit by hand or create with RW-Tools.
Track markers are set in the route or scenario editor.

And to further clarify if that is necessary the Route Markers are in the Assets file which should look something like for instance WJ Sound\Montana Rail Link\RouteMarkers which should contain a bin file and a dcsv file.
