TMU-F - Editor blocks?

Post by ElmigoAlmere » 04 Jul 2009 13:52

Hi all,
I have TMU-Forever. I have it for a long time now, but I still have this question: If you have a look at TMO, there are blocks in the editor. But some of that blocks are not in TMU-Forever? Is there a patch, expansion pack or whatever to get that old trusted blocks back?

Yes, some of the blocks from TMO aren't needed in TMU because you can now do what those blocks did using regular road blocks.

Check out my original music @ https://vertigofox.bandcamp.com or look for Vertigo Fox on soundcloud and in other places.

Those blocks were never available in the editor of any public TM release. They were replaced with the metal-grid blocks. All the blocks available in official TMO editors are available in TMUF.

Oh! I thought you meant the blocks that were used to connect to road above a mountain or hill. Sorry!

They existed at Nadeo's offices when TM was first being developed.

What's confusing? That's exactly what we've been discussing. All of the blocks in that image are either in TMUF, or have not been available in any public TM editor, as far as I can tell.

I notice 4 blocks that got changed between the image and public TM releases:

1. The loop, which changed from a solid road to metal grid (227 and 228 in TMUF)
2. The long spiral turns with banked edge, which also got changed to metal grid (46 and 47)
3. The sharp 90° turn with banked edge, which also got changed to metal grid (42)
4. A short straight with banked edge, which also got changed to metal grid (41 or possibly 48)

Are there others? I didn't spot a 90° turn that didn't have the banked edge, so perhaps that got changed to two blocks - one with the bank removed, and the other as metal grid. The banked blocks got remodelled quite a lot of course; in particular, the bank went past the vertical (like stacking TMUF bay block 466 on 463) whereas the replacement grid ones don't.
