Is it worth the money? I have to say absolutely "Yes!". I think future editions/versions will further refine the product and make it just about indispensable in the planning processes.


I would endorse this vote for rrtack, but for version 4, not for v5.  I get periodic crashes with v5, and an annoying bug where I lose ctrl-c and ctrl-v for cut/paste.  I've also had many problems with the simulation not working correctly.  I did talk to rrtrack support for the cut/paste issue and he said "it works for me".  So I'm not happy with v5 at all.  (sorry to hijack this thread)...

I didn't buy until V5...and you are correct: V5 has some funky bugs. I've learned to work around them, but it definitely has some stability issues.
