If “Check for Updates” feature in older releases reports that there is no newer version of SCARM, download the installer directly from the website. The old release info file may be cached on your PC and it may need some time to expire. If the website also shows older version, press F5 key to refresh it.

This version adds option for applying of the layers visibility also in 3D viewing mode, updates the License Manager in order to work also in Wine, improves the workflow of downloading and installing of the rolling stock libraries in MTS Power Edition and adds several new libraries, including traffic signs used in Europe and USA.

Layers visibility in 3D Viewer

By default, all layers are always visible in the 3D Viewer, regardless of the visibility settings in the Layers window. Starting from this version, if you want to apply the layers visibility also in 3D viewing mode, you can go to “Tools” > “Settings” > “3D view” > “Layers” and toggle “Apply visibility in 3D” option. Note that the terrain mesh in 3D viewing mode stays in its own layer and can be toggled between On, Wireframe and Off from the buttons in the toolbar of the 3D Viewer.

New Traffic signs libraries

If you have roadways in your SCARM track plan, you can now add also traffic signs from the two new object libraries – RoadSigns-EU and RoadSigns-US. To select one of these libraries, open tracks selection menu, navigate to the Objects sub-menu and select either EU or US traffic signs library. Now you should see the chosen traffic signs in the selection panel on the left. To place a road sign, just drag and drop it next to the road.

If needed, rotate the traffic sign to align to the road section (if the roadway is on angle) by use of “Edit” > “Rotate” menu command. You can also attach several traffic signs one above another on a single post. To do that, place the first sign and ensure that it is the only selected object on the plan. Now click over the next traffic sign in the selection panel, that you want to be placed over the first one. In that way, you can add as many signs on a post as you wish, but note that in the reality, there are no more than 4-5 signs on a single post as the drivers need time to see and perceive all them while passing around.

Note that the road signs, placed on a single post are packed as one object. If you want to edit the pack, you need to delete it first and start over again.

License Manager compatibility for Linux/Wine

Starting from this version, the SCARM License Manager is upgraded and is now working in Wine, which means that the licenses can be activated and installed also in Linux and Mac OS X under Wine. To do that, perform the activation of your license from SCARM by use of “Help” > “License Activation and Installation” menu command. Login in your SCARM account when prompted, click over the license file in order to activate it and then save it on your HDD. Go back in SCARM and use “File” > “Open” menu command to open the license file. After installing of the license key, restart SCARM to reflect the change. Please note that while the License Manager is now compatible with Wine, SCARM is still not fully operational there and is not supported in Linux or Mac OS X environments, so purchasing a license for these operating systems is on your own risk.

  2. Yes, one of the textures is not loaded correctly. I already fixed that in DR G car file so please, download and re-install it in order to fix the problem in MTS 3D viewing mode. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  3. Mixy, I bought a licensed copy of your software, yesterday. Thank you for creating something which I hope I will be able to use to build my first layout. For the last five years, I have been collecting and reading books, magazines, and online documentation on all the various aspects of model train design and operation. I believe I have now decided what I want to create, and am at the point of moving my design (and layers of notes) from paper to a Computer Aided Railway Modeling Software application. I look forward to the many happy hours ahead, using your software, to make my plans begin to take on their physical transformation. Your ‘New’ Uncle,

  4. Even if you try to install KATO flexible truck diagonally, will not you solve the problem of not snapping at this distance?

  5. I have a question. I understand that you need money to pay for the sit and all. Why couldn’t scarm’s license thing just be a bunch of extensions instead of getting an infinite amount of track and such? Scarm used to have an infinite amount of everything. I was just wondering.

  6. Hello!

    I wonder if it is possible to use Märklin Transfer Table (for example 72941) when you buy the license key?

  7. Marklin 7294 is already included into the M-track library in SCARM. You can use it in your track plans with both free and licensed versions of the program.

    If by “use” you mean to “operate” it in the Model Trains Simulator, I am afraid that this is still not possible, regardless of the Starter or Power edition of MTS.

  8. Thank Yoy for the quick answear!

    Hadn´t a thought of changeing track model during fixing of new layout…. and I´m in no way near any simulation yet….

  9. I’ve loaded SCARM 1.1.0 (a). When I start SCARM, I get a message ‘One or more track libraries are missing, corrupt, or not supported on this version, Please reinstall SCARM as it cannot run properly without it’s track libraries.’ I’ve done that several times with no success. What should I do next? Thank you. Pete

  10. This message is displayed when SCARM is unable to find its track libraries. Perhaps there is some problem with the installation. Try to uninstall the program from Control Panel > Programs ans Features and then make a clean install. If that does not help, write to and I will then look more deep on that.

  11. Dear Milen,

    I am planning to use SCARM for designing my layout – I consider to buy the licence key. But I will definitely use transition curves. I know it is now not included, I also have read to you plan to add it. Could you give any estimate when this will be included into SCARM?

    Best Regards.
