I want to create a track from scratch, but I have no idea how to use sandbox at all. Is there a good tutorial that can help me?

As a matter of fact, here's the classic ye olde The Pits tutorial from about, what.... 15 years ago? http://www.thepits.us/files/tutorials/SandboxTrackTutor.pdf


Keep in mind that while many of the methods to create tracks have been expanded upon (and even updated to the point where just about everything in the PDF is outdated), it's still better to have that as a starting point and is something you should read irregardless if it's not "up-to-date" on modern NR2003 track creation.


*EDIT* Oh, and depending on what OS your computer has, Sandbox may give you issues (especially on Windows 8 and later) due to it's occasional instability, so do be cautious when using the program as well.

Not to much has changed, and that is a great starting point. It's where I started. It gives a basic lesson on track building and with each track being different, no matter where you start the learning process never ends. As for Sandbox issues, I'm on a newer machine (not top end) running Win10. With this OS and extra memory I have rarely had a problem with Sandbox crashing. The biggest problem with Sandbox was memory issues. Having the camera window open while the height window is also open caused 99% of the problems. Even now I still work on a small section, save often, save at least one backup .ptf file, and restart the program especially if I have been doing any track height/banking work.

There are some tutorials on YouTube, but most take to long to get to the point, and you end up watching them open and close folders looking for whatever they are working on. :|:

I'd start with the pit tutorial and then open a few original papyrus track to see what they did to build tracks. Best way to learn.
