    First, I want to compliment Cory, Michael, and Ryan for a job well done. Yes, there are rough edges here and there, but that's understandable in a project of this magnitude. The route is a joy to...

    Good explanation of Windows memory management

    When you start a new process, it requests a certain amount of memory. Windows assigns the process memory from the virtual memory pool (this is equal...

    Steve, it seems I've been overthinking this entire thing. I don't know if you recall this thread, but in post #16 bavli mentions the TE curves for the ETR 303. It turns out that this train uses six...

    Steve, in theory it would be possible to calculate the speed in each notch at which the acceleration would start to fall off, but it would require the current/voltage versus TE curves for the...

    Steve, you're probably right about ratioing the speeds in each notch to account for the higher gearing of the Arrows. This makes even more sense in light of this thread. The relevant part is this...

    Do you mean if you use simplified controls? Other than that, I haven't found any way to get MSTS to support some type of cruise control ( and there are several types I'm aware of ). The closest I...
