    When messing around with the track width you get a default of 1.000.

    What is this size in meters/feet? I need to make my track 48 feet across, so what would that value be in BTB?

    thanks :)

    duh, sorry noob question. I'm guessing the factor of 1.0 for the width = 10 meters?

    so 48 feet = 14.6304

    or 1.46?

    If you want 48 feet wide road, then in BTB you have to make it 14,63m

    Cheers I worked that one out fella,

    thing is when you go to edit track width the default settings is 1.000.

    so does that equal 10 meters?

    Track width is a multiplier for the width of the track sections, so doesn't relate to directly to measured size.

    The default track section width is 10m however so effectively without altering anything you do get a 10m wide track.

    You're right : the default width (1.000) is 10 meters width. You have to set the width to 1.463 to have a 14,63 m large track.

    It'd be better to adjust the cross-section of the track.

    this will now make your default track width approximaley 48 feet wide.
