    I do understand the reason why OR doesn't model derailments. Some players might want to deliberately derail their train just for fun--something we DO NOT want to encourage. I haven't obtained OR...

    Why WOULDN'T we want OR-exclusive content? OR has the capability to have custom physics parameters that Kuju overlooked or ignored. In MSTS, simulating anything not within Kuju's programmed...

    If you want an illuminated interior, the secret is not "lighting" per se, but assigning parts to be "bright" textured instead of "normal." (It's been years since I've played MSTS, but I believe that...

    How about operating feed valves? This way freight locomotives can be used as helpers in passenger service and vice versa. Previously, this kind of flexibility required two .eng (and tender .wag)...

    One thing is for sure, in general, I'd like to see them introduce new physics tokens that reflect what MSTS/Kuju had neglected or overlooked (especially in the steam department--not all steamers are...

    Sorry, I think I got ahead of myself. Bottom line--given the difference in brake pipe pressure between passenger and freight trains, how can I give my locomotives flexibility for say, freight...

    Thanks Ragtimer. Just one more question. Let's assume that the locomotive's Brake Cylinder needle will hit zero (or "peg") at 70 PSI. However, the brakes on the passenger cars will not release...
  11. Passenger/Freight Brake Pressure Difference

    In the steam and early diesel eras, the train line pressures were 70 PSI for Freight and 90 PSI for passenger trains (since then they have been increased, of course). However, to allow for...

    Are you specifically referring to exterior or interior track sounds?

    If you are referring to exterior track sounds, these streams do indeed exist, however, they are very faint in volume. Next...

    "Focal Length" of Cabview Camera?

    Hello. After a hiatus of several years, I want to get back into train-simming.

    One of the tasks I wanted to do was create my own cabviews. Unlike some perople, who simply take a photograph of the...
  15. Steam Cabs--Engineer or Full Backhead View?

    Hello.

    What is your preference for steam locomotive cab views as far as the front view goes? Some people prefer a view from the engineer's (driver's) seat (forcing the firedoor to the left of the...
