  • Nova Maquete 2014

    This is the same old Nova Maquete, but saved with version 3360 of 3pi.
    There are 2 files, the layout itself and a folder with the textures.
    Both should be unpacked in the same directory to work.

    When you open Nova Maquete in 3D it will put you in a location suit to benchmark performance.
    This is the spot I use to compare the FPS (frames per second) between versions of 3pi and my own OpenGl Demo programs.

    Nova Maquete is a layout that uses many of the 3pi features.
    It was created for operation, so you can operate the trains like a real layout, in 3D.
    It features 2.5 milion triangles, 700+ textures, transparency, animations, sounds, etc.
    It has even a locomotive with moving rods and sound (Montanha).
    It is really big and demands a lot from 3pi.

    As Jeff reminded me, there are some settings that should be twicked before benchmarking:

    In File/Settings-3dDisplay set:
    Native Line widths
    Include full detail
    Native Line Colors
    Do not display objects closer than –> 100mm
    Do not display objects farther than –> 12000mm

    In Tools/Settings set:
    Apply same color to front and back...
    Smooth shade polygons
    Smooth shade objects
    Show textures
    Show ballast textures
    Level of detail
    Truck Visibility

    In View/Show set:
    Ballast Texture

    Hope you enjoy!
