Re: Is there a good website that shows all the various track
Deacon I'm a Visio user (waving hand in the air). Would love to see template once you've finished it.
Doc, sorry for the delay in responding to interest in my work...
I've been reworking things, in light of the new expansions. I got my copies of the new pieces late in December and am now trying to get all of the shapes to work correctly for the new pieces (and the old ones at the new angles that the second extension allows track to run at!). I have made some trial tracks with the new extensions using the Visio shapes I have created, but I am not yet entirely happy with the results. In particular, the 45% angled track does not seem to align well with snap and grid enabled.
The current file has gotten pretty large, as I have created layouts for all of the example tracks that Ferti has had on their website and on the inserts in the packages. Also, I have made layouts in Visio for many of the tracks pictured on BGG in the many listings for PitchCar, PitchCar Mini, etc. I will need to break these into smaller segments before I release them (and I need to get shapes that are 100% stable before I do that!).
Note that I only own the full-sized PitchCar - I would be very interested in the exact measurements of the mini pieces, if anyone has the inclination to make them for me.
My next project will be a lot less virtual - I am getting the measurements for the chicanes for the Carabande Action Set and plan on trying to make a couple of them (since they are not (yet - who knows what expansions are coming in the future...) available from Ferti.
