This version adds new options for counting of the tracks and objects in the Parts List (in the licensed edition only), improves several other features and finally presents the long awaited ability to work with tram-track systems. There are several new and updated track libraries, including the tram tracks from LUNA and Kato and also a new object library with several 3D-textured shipping containers (not included in the installation package).
New options for the Parts List
Staring from this version, the Parts List will be able to count not only all parts in the project, but also the parts in the visible layers as well as the parts only in the active (currently selected) layer. To get the required parts count, go to “Tools” > “Parts List” and select the desired option from the sub-menu:
You can also toggle the “Group by layers” option in the sub-menu in order to see each layer and its contents in separate table in the list. If you want to count the parts in the same way each time, you may setup your preferred mode in the “Parts List” page of the settings and get the parts list with a single click as before.
Working with tram tracks
This version brings the ability for working with tram tracks in the program and adds several new libraries with trackage from LUNA and Kato in HO, HOm and N scales. See below one sample tram layout, build with LUNA HO Asphalt tracks in SCARM:
Note that you can add the required asphalt/pavement surfaces alongside the regular LUNA turnouts by use of the figures (rectangles and polygons) in the program, colored in the appropriate color and with height property set to 7.125mm (for HO scale) or 6mm (for HOm scale).
The new Containers library
This version adds support for storing of textured objects directly in the project files. The first library with textured objects is the new Containers library. It has several different colored 40ft shipping containers:
Like the road signs added in the previous version of SCARM, the containers can be stacked one over another. To make a stack of containers, place the first container in the plan, then select it. Now, each next click over a container button from the selection panel will add it on the top of the stack. Here is one example of several stacks of containers:
Note that this library is not part of the installation package due to the size of the textures in the file. You can download and install it separately from the library info page (see the links below) and access it from the Objects sub-menu of the libraries list in SCARM.
