    O.K. For the last few months, I've been trying to find a free track planning program for the Kato Unitrack. I know that Atlas has a program, and is very usefull. Is there a free download or something that will let me plan out a new layout with Unitrack?

    You may have already tried this. Did you go to Kato's website?

    Kato doesn't have software planning. They do have a purchasable template, but not a free software thing like Atlas does. Xtrkcad does Unitrack, but it's learning curve is pretty high, and I found that it doesn't have the whole library on their basic track in it, so it's limited in its uses. While I am a computer type, I've found with my Unitrack layout, I do some basic planning using the templates, and then refine things by hooking up the Unitrack that I have and playing around... that alone is perhaps one of its biggest advantages. For the most part Unitrack can fit nearly any track plan you come across with some adjustments to compensate for Unitrack's limit of 2 turnout sizes and 2 level crossing types.
