Installing Basemapz
Posted by N3V Games (Paul) on 30 November 2016 10:31 AM

Basemapz is a 3rd party utility provided by community member "ModelerMJ" that assists in creating your new layouts by providing an easy to use "import" function for your favourite 2D "track plan". 

The Basemapz installer comes as part of your installed version of TMR17 and requires a couple of manual steps as follows:

  1. Ensure that TMR17 is installed
  2. Locate the folder where TMR17 is installed (e.g. C:\Program Files\N3V Games\TMR17)
  3. Open the "extras" folder
  4. Double-click on basemapz.msi
  5. Choose the "allow" options to install the program
  6. The program will be installed by default to: C:\Program Files (x86)\ModelerMJ\Basemapz
  7. Once installed, double click Basemapz.exe to launch the program
  8. Click the Help link at the bottom for any assistance in using Basemapz

NOTE: Once installed and launched once, you can then launch Basemapz from the TMR17 Launcher > File > Launch Basemapz menu option
