NEW ROUTE EDITOR UTILITY EASES ROUTE CONSTRUCTIONFebruary 10, 2003 - JUMPER V1.0, a new utility to aid in MSTS route construction, is now available at the JUMPER website.
JUMPER works with the MSTS Route Editor and standard MSTS marker files to save the route creator hours of time and frustration. Allowing the route creator to "jump" to a location by simply clicking on a list of locations from a marker file, JUMPER eliminates scrolling from location to location in a route using the arrow keys, entering coordinates by hand, or changing the route's start position in a configuration file.
Instead of copying a location's coordinates to a scrap of paper, JUMPER lets the route creator capture a new marker location based on the camera position with a single mouse click. JUMPER can also measure distance and bearing of a position in the route from a selected object or the camera position without using clumsy ruler or protractor objects. Uniform placement of poles or finding the length of a bridge needed to cross a terrain feature is easily done.
Purchase Info: JUMPER is available for online purchase and download. It is priced at $10.00 (US).
