How to make a track?
Posted Nov 25 2016 - 12:18 PM
My idea is to make the "static" track and when it is finished, to ask for help here to make the AI. Of course I'll study the way it works, but is a question of time and there are good willing people that knows the AI making very well.
But that is not going to happen tomorrow... In 2017 Christmas we will talk about this again

Well, I answer myself:
I thought that a spreadsheet could be useful, but as this is a job that I`ll do once in my life, I think the better way is to put two screens of gpltrk program, one for the ini track and the second for the reverse that will be maked from zero, and then copy the values of each section, the length for straight and curvature & radius for curved sections (changing sign of both).

I begin a new track (the reverse) with section 0 with the values of last section of the initial track, then section 1 with the values of last-1, section 2 with the values of last-2... As I have a 32" full HD screen it's easy to have the two tracks simultaneously, copying-pasting the values

If the former, then you can use John Black's "Track Reverser" program and then extract the 'trk' gtk from the reversed 'trk' file.

Works like google maps or earth. Select "Autoroute" (means by car) find your track on the map. Set your starting point an set up to 10 points arround the track. Your altitute data are created in the bottom half of your screen. You can export them to a *.csv, save them in a txt-file and (not testet be me) import to excel and work with them.
Give it a try, might be very useful.
