Trains driving through landscapes
The main window shows a landscape with one or several track segments as selected
by the user. The track will be used by trains which are also selected
individually. The game is controlled by the buttons at the bottom edge of
The vehicles are stored in various directories sorted by countries, eras
and types of vehicles. The main frame shows vehicles from one
subdirectory. A train can be put together by selecting individual vehicles. The
complete train is displayed at the top of the program window and it can be tested
running there. The trains so constructed can be saved in a list and associated
with a landscape.
Creating sequences of landscapes
Within this frame, a list of landscape drawings each associated with a set
of trains can be defined. This is the source for running the program as a
screensaver. The landscapes can be presented in a random order or in the
order in which they are defined. The selection of trains within a specific
landcape is always random. The number of trains to be shown before the
landscape is changed may be restricted by upper and lower limits.
Changing program settings
This frame allows the user to modify settings for the program BAHNLAND.
These are saved in an INI-file when closing the program and will be restored
with restart of the program. Modifications which are made within this frame
are displayed immediately in the INI-file shown at the left side of the frame.
Use as a screensaver
If the program BAHNLAND is used as a screensaver, only the frame showing the
landscape drawings without the control buttons is displayed. The sequence of
landscapes shown by the screensaver is controlled by the landscape list which the
user can create in the program's dialog mode.
