    A few comments here;

    Not to doubt you, but what reproducible "proof" do you have to what you have stated here?

  8. Consist editor sudden death, observed fails that are without explanation.

    Of recent I have re-tried the Consist Editor which is part of the TSRE executable.

    I have tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions on a Win7-64 machine. I have also played around with the texture...

    First, thanks for pointing out what I hesitated to write. As I read, governments are looking at "tax leakage" and how to curtail it. There is considerably more to write about this topic, but I do not...

    Hi Scott,

    Alas, I wish you had the time and/or courage to use Blender. I do not want to be branded as an evangelist here with this. 3DC had its time, and as we both know the MSTS exporter was not...

  17. Maybe give this a try?

    Yes, these are impossibly TINY little numbers. That "8" is in fact an "S"...for setup I guess. I pulled the code from a SLI Conrail SD-40, which seems to work/display correctly for the dynamic brake.
