TSxx Decal

Following the versions of Google Earth being retired that were compatible with RW Decal, My hunt for takers to sort the code failed miserably late last year mainly due to the size of project but I'm giving it another shot. So if anyone is interested in working to get RW Decal functional with the newer versions of Google Earth so that those including myself who were still using it will be able to do so once again. The code is freely available here: https://github.com/simdeveloper/RWDecal however if functional again the program MUST continue to remain FREE.

I had a chat with a guy who does Python programming and he said it would take a major re-write to make RWdecal work with the latest Google Earth.

It seems the only solution is to use an old version of Google Earth - I’ve no idea how long the old versions will work for ? Have you tried RWDecal with an older version of Google Earth recently ?

I seem to remember that the whole problem was that the Google server stopped to talk to (so) old clients.

My private view is that all of the available options are quite some work and the whole scene is in limbo because of the continued uncertainty and delays in TSW. When and if that is the new thing, then anyone putting in much work will target that. If it fails, some will change from the fence back to the old RW. And some will start dreaming of a new, independent thing again, that certainly will fold again on the first rumour of a commercially backed next product announcement.

The servers for GE 6.1 were turned off at the beginning of the year, thereby making RW_Decal non-workable. It will not work with later versions (I think Jim said that it was something to do with the keys).
I spent a week making sets of decals for the routes I will be building over the next few years. I am willing to share with anyone.

Since then I have had to concoct a few more, by taking screen shots in Google Earth Pro and aligning/sizing using the overlay in game

Once it gone, means it have gone.
Getting an API key for the project is a worty try than betting on a dead horse.
