    Basically, all I am looking for is the track_ set used for the payload track, only without the wood. For use on pl_waste, since the wood doesn't really fit in.

    That's it.

    Thanks :)

    As I already mentioned in the cart request, I will probably make that too ;)

    But since you also requested it, I will make it :p

    Did you only use the valve models, or also any custom ones?

    I'd thought I'd put this in for good measure.

    Yes, I've only kept to the valve trainyard/track_ models :)

    Is there a major problem with doing what valve did in several places and just sinking the track model into the floor until the wood dissapears??

    That would work. But each track segment probable has 100+ polys for the wood. In most spots in that map you could probably get rid of 1-2,000 polys without the wood. And the models would probably only add 100K to the file size zipped.

    So I think it's a good optimization tradeoff.

    what about just doing brushwork rails? I can't imagine it being that tough

    I think the corners are pretty hard with brushes...

    displacements subdivided should be easy enough to make a descent corner.
