    This is indeed great news, and will probably require and edit of AI locomotive sms files to use the same variable trigger and the lead engine. But it's worth the effect. Now if we can get him to change the brake application association to the engine brakes as opposed to the train brakes, we will have total success and realism acheived with regards to trailing engines. This old sim does indeed have some good life left in it.

    This is one of the best news I have listened about MSTS steamers.

    It's time for me to move to BIN.

    I'll need some change management (and a date with my psychiatrist :D :D :D )

    That shouldn't indeed be necessary. A helper loco uses in the ...eng.sms file Scalabilty values 1 to 5, and not Scalabilty value 0 like AI locos. Therefore the same ...eng.sms file used for that loco as player loco should work also for such loco as helper loco.

    I'm hoping the AI locomotive access the player versions sms file and not the lead engine's sms file. This will not work if it does. What if you mix EMD and GE power. The trailing units need to access their own type so they produce the correct two or four cycle sounds.

    The demo video has two distinctly different engine sounds so it would appear that each engine is using its on sms.

    Regards,

    So it should be, maybe I was unclear in my preceding post.

    Is there no end to what George can do with this old sim?
