In this Guide, you will learn how to professionally plan a layout in Rolling Line.
Planning the track
When creating a layout, the first thing you do is to plan ahead.
In this picture, you can see how I have planned out the track, this of course, is a rough draft.
In this image, you can see that I have color coded the height of the track, as well as the bridges.
When color coding make sure that the colors never coincide to meaning, ore meaning coincide to color. Ex. (Brown meaning bridge and road at the same time).
This is where the blue comes to play. This blue signifies that there is a river. I would higly suggest that you color code your scenery to a specific color(s).
Walls and Tunnels
Here you can see that the lavender signifies the walls, and that the green means the entrance to the tunnel, and red means the end of a tunnel. You will also notice that I moved the river a bit to the right.
Conveying your future thoughts
when designing a layout you should write down on a sticky note in sections what each color means:
Height & Tracks
Black = high
White = low
Blue = river(s)
Green – tree(s)
Purple = Rocks
Lavender = Walls
Brown = Bridge(s)
Green = Start of tunnel(s)
Red = End of tunnel(s)
You can also leave “notes” in map:
For instance, the dotted blue means that I am unsure about making/having a river there, and might move it.
