  • Carrera layout track planner software problem

    I downloaded Carrera layout track planner software, and am trying to create a new track, but can't add any corners, anybody?

    File, Tracks and Manager at top menus are all greyed out. Only Track Planner Functions and Help menus are not greyed out and therefore available to use. I've succeeded in adding background grid and a long back straight away, simply can't find out how to add curves. I've changed Section List, Display and Section Styles, nothing works, looks like not compatible with Windows10 64bit pc that I'm using?

    Any good track planners available for Carrera track? Edit: I dont' mind paying for a good piece of software (or donate to freeware creator), if there's one available.

    I've used Ultimate Racer 3.0 (http://uracerweb.org/) with good results - although the free version limits the number of sections you can save. If you're using a Mac things are different - something online (http://www.softyroyal.de) might work then. Good luck.

      I've used UR3 also and the free version does serve it's purpose. As Wax stated you can't save much of a layout but what I've done on the free version is once I make something I like I print out the layout so I can remember it. Try the free version and see if you like it and then pay for it if you do.

          Works pretty well except that I keep designing layouts that don't quite meet up at the ends! Played with it for couple hours lol. Would be nice if it had some sort of smart helper to assist in lining things up. Also doesn't seem to work great, just good, the grid size is what? Can overlay a table size, but then can't edit once it's set. Could use some good non cross-over layouts for 6x12" table that I'm building please.

            When you're dealing with a non matchup that small it's a non issue. Carrera is a forgiving track that can be miniplated slightly without any problems. There are some good design folks here that might chime in.

              There are provisions for gaps in the menu bar - never had any issues with tracks not working out when using the gap adjustments. Grids are typically 12" I believe - think you can specify. There is a support forum at SCI if you have more questions. Here is link https://www.slotcarillustrated.com/f...er-3-0-support
