Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Are you ready to go places? Then be sure to pick up Road 'n' Rails. This feature-packed highway and railroad themed set was designed to expand the possibilities of TerraDome 3 even further, although all props can also be used independently.

Road 'n' Rails comprises of a morphing road and a railroad, each of which are sized to fully span the TerraDome AZone, plus a railroad crossing and a variety of highway signs. Also included are hitchhiker props: a cardboard sign with different destination options, and a guitar case and small suitcase, each with a selection of materials.

The 12 material options for the road and railroad are designed to match the full range of current Badlands, Desert and Dry TerraDome 3 terrains. They also blend well with other TerraDome 3 terrain options. The rocks have matching material options for light, regular and dark terrains.

The railroad has a detailed version for close-up work plus a simpler, lower poly version for background use. It was made to standard railroad gauge scale and so can be used with similarly scaled props (e.g. Parkside carriages).

The road has a number of morphs, including a couple that enable it to be used alongside two of the TerraDome 3 AZone terrain morphs.

Additional Details

  • Road hump and raised railroad morphs have matching terrain morphs for TerraDome 3 AZone, which can be found by selecting the AZone and viewing its morphs.
  • There are also a couple of corrective morphs for the AZone which should be applied if you wish to use the road with the Azone Canyon Valley2 or Noise morphs. Use these in addition to the morphs and they will flatten the central area only.
  • Actual road signs (i.e. yellow warning signs, mile marker) use only public domain images and can be used in your commercial renders.
  • Material Options
    • With 12 material options, you can choose the one that works best with your base terrain material. Here are some suggestions for a good match:
      • TD3 AZone terrain material - Road 'n' Rails material option
