    You can rename or delete SCARM project files in Windows Explorer like any other files. Just keep .scarm extension when renaming and everything will be OK.

    Two small bugs in SCARM were reported last month so far:

    - "Integer Overflow" error message may appear in some situations when modelling flex-tracks
    - Arrow keys in the 2D editor stop working after pressing of Esc key

    All these will be corrected in the next release of SCARM, but you encounter another problems, let me know about them in this thread.

    Here is a nice collection of Quick tips, that may be useful in your daily work with SCARM: Quick Tips in SCARM Software

    And here is the list with articles in the blog for February 2014: www.scarm.info/blog/2014/02.

    Two more tutorials about road crossings were published in the blog. See all here:

    All tutorials about roadways in SCARM

    The articles are showing how to assemble the crossings, IS adapters and IS approaches in order to get various intersections and combinations, like the one below:

    Here is the list with articles in the blog for May - www.scarm.info/blog/2014/05.

    Some users are asking about roundhouses for their virtual layouts and some others wants SCARM to perform faster on their very large projects. So check these recent posts:

    How To Make a Roundhouse in SCARM - if you want to represent a realistic roundhouse in the track plan and 3D viewer.
    How To Speed-Up SCARM - if you have problems when editing a large layout because SCARM is working slowly.

    Here is how may look one example roundhouse in SCARM:

    Hope all this will be of help :)

    SCARM v. 0.9.25 released

    The new SCARM v. 0.9.25 is ready, coming with new figures and many new and updated track libraries. Read more about it here:

    SCARM Free Railroad Layout Software 0.9.25 Released

    The new figures are horizontal and vertical cylinders, so the way of creating circles / vertical cylinders given in the above post is now obsolete. With the dedicated cylinders you will be able to draw more complex objects and rolling stock, like the small steam engine below:

    Hope you will like the new version and the new features in it ;)

    Some users reported for a problem with the new SCARM 0.9.25 after update. This is probably due to corrupted download of the installation package. It seems that the installer is able to run even if it is not downloaded correctly, but after that, the program crashes on startup. If you also experience such problems, follow the steps described in the link below:

    Resolving SCARM Installation Issues

    This should help for fixing of the corrupted setup package.

    By user's request, one of the articles is about the Favorite libraries in SCARM...

    ...and shows how they can be turned off (if you don't want them in the selection panel).

    Many users asked about the file with the small steam engine that I used for demonstration of the new cylinder features in SCARM v. 0.9.25. Here is it:

    Drawing of Prussian T3 Steam Loco in SCARM

    The article shows most of the steps in the drawing of a close representation of Prussian T3 loco in HO scale. In example, here is the wheelset - as parts and assembled:

    In the beginning of November, I launched the new SCARM website with modern new look and responsive design, which is coming with a lot of new and updated information and resources about the program and its features. See it here:

    www.scarm.info

    [​IMG]

    The site now works well not only on PCs, but also on tablets and smartphones too. Contents section is rewritten and optimized for easy navigation and access to the most important pages. The same is valid also for the documentation - it has new structure with many new and updated topics. See the new help page here:

    Online help & FAQ about SCARM layout software

    Hope you will like the new site :)
