    Highly unlikely such a program could be developed prior to the implementation of real spline track by the Open Rails team, where you could manually choose any tangent length or curve radius (and IF...

    Hi Geoff,

    When I did the physics for the engines for Mullan, I took great care to assure accurate tractive effort for all locomotives. It is my opinion that these engines have the most realistic...

    Geoff,



    I never said there hasn't been. I only said, I don't see why there is any problem with a company asking for input from customers.

    Hi Geoff,

    In regards to specifically SPSF: for one, it was just a question, no work had or has begun on an SPSF set to my knowledge. Isn't it a good thing that a payware company is seeking some...

    Hi Jerry,

    Excellent, I know it's a long way coming but highly looking forward to this one. I recognized Headquarters right away. By the way, many railroads, including NP, normally used 0.04% per...

    Thanks Chris. I made some attempts at doing that last night, but will try it again manually with the IMG tags like you indicate when I make my next post in this thread.

    Hi Derek,

    There's actually an interesting reason for that 130% factor for Mullan. I had long felt that the adhesion physics in Open Rails during rain and snowfall were wrong. About 2 months ago, I...

    Paul hit it pretty well that the tractive force curves drive the physics engine. As for being "cheated", pretty much any time you are making more than 10 MPH up Mullan, you are doing great! ;) "Into...

    Yes it does, we secured permission to include one created by a user at ElvasTower.

    Hi Gerry,

    To add to what Geepster said: That signal bridge was taken out of service just 3 or so years ago, and it's functionality replaced by the two signals a half mile or so to the east. Around...

    Jerry,

    Let me know if you need any additional information on the Camas Prairie. That will a huge undertaking, but I wish you the greatest in being able to get it to completion! That region was...

    You are looking at the extreme west end of the route which is intended only for AI (computer-controlled) train spawning, thus why no activities go out there. If you read the route description in the...

    Hi Derek,

    Are you using the Ctrl-F6 (I believe) command to toggle on track names in the yards?

    Hi Gerry,

    Thanks for that. The reason I would argue that is a bad policy is that, if we made a post that suggests a certain solution to a problem, and then we later realize that solution is NOT a...

    Do you get errors with the Milwaukee freight cars ONLY in the MSTS activity editor, or also while running Open Rails? To answer your question, you WILL get errors if you try to open the Mullan...

    Yes, Helena is a quiet zone. There are no signs shown in the MRL timetables for a "do not sound horn" whistlepost, so I do not believe they have them from what I have seen... The quiet zone was...
