Does that mean that you will soon be creating entire Rail Yard sceneries for importing into other maps? Kind-of-like This:

They would make exellent targets too.

Don't worry slapping on USAF stickers would make it go over 9000 kts/hour

Nitpick: "kts" is "knots", which is already a unit of speed (nautical miles per hour). So if you are talking about speed, you don't need the "/hour" part, unless you are talking about acceleration.

Oh for that we need some kind of steam locomotive. Also WWII German military supply trains frequently has one or two flatbed cars armed with flak attached. (hint hint) ;)

Hmmm... I guess you could get that by putting the flak on a motion path with the train. Would that work?
I don't think I've ever seen a flak cannon move on a map before.

On Mh3w's Porlamar map there's moving SAM and AAA on an island.

But is it the trucks, or one of the stationary SAM/AA ground objects.

This idea i made is really awesome, and combined with my advanced map making skills I made this:

What?

Either way, the AAA / SAM I mentioned are moving ground objects.

At 1:25 in this video you can see them in action.

OK, if one wanted to place tracks in a map, would one draw them in place or insert pieces?
Seems like I read some post about someone having done some? I'm going to go back and look too.

Incidentally, I mentioned Railyards also because I was thinking of the Poland event that was in the planning; thay have a lot of that in G'dansk don't they?

If you where to do a massive rail yard it would be better to draw them directly in the scenery and not inserting a gazillion ground objects.Btw if you are going to be doing more rail yards it would pay to save your first one as a .Pc2 file so you can cooky cutter them as you need them.
