Trainz 2009

I tried the beta 2009, there is no change in the IM file format over 2004.
The 3DC exporter supports all the ‘new’ texturing features in 2009 (that have always been there)

It is mostly a sales exercise.
There is a move towards an xml export format, but then it needs the Auran program to convert it to .im
This might prove useful if they ever do change the graphics engine for the next TRS version.

Has anyone looked at this yet? From what I have read they seem to be leaning towards using Blender mostly. But they claim it is backwards compatible, so older content can still be used.
I’m still using Trainz 2004. Not sure if I want to spend money on Trainz 2009 until I hear more about it.
Thanks.
