Virtual Railroading


I want to build a railroad simulator based on the Blender game engine. My first objective would be to create a railroad track of sorts then have an object follow it.

I would very much appreciate information on how I would go about doing just that, to start with, anyway.

Thank-you in advance for any help offered.

Model a segment of railroad track, then make it repeat with an array modifier. Next in your modifier chain, have it deform along a curve object, then animate your train objects to that same curve.

Then, all you need to do is build the rest of the freaking railroad simulator, and you’re done!
