Thread: BLW/ZT PRR Centipede Lighting Issue

    Default BLW/ZT PRR Centipede Lighting Issue

    I was wondering if anyone could help me with the headlights on BLW/ZT release of the PRR Baldwin DR-12-8-3000 (Centipede)? The lights on the second unit light up but there is no sphere of light. I have been messing with the binary for the last three days now and cannot get anything to work.

    This appears to be an Open Rails issue, I'll notify the developers:

    Hi Rick.
    You not coding for two spheres of light on at same time? I have a single engine that has a sphere on each end with dim/bright switch controlling each. If it helps, here's a clip of the light code I ginned up for the rear sphere:

    Code:
    Lights	(	nn
    		Light	(
    			comment( Sphere of light High Beam )
    			Type		( 1 )
    			Conditions	(
    				Headlight ( 3 )
    				Unit ( 2 )
    				)
    			Cycle	( 0 )
    			FadeIn	( 0.5 )
    			FadeOut	( 0.5 )
    			States	(	1
    				State	(
    					Duration ( 0.0 )
    					LightColour ( ffffffff )
    					Position ( 0.0 3.5 5.0 )
    					Transition ( 0 )
    					Radius ( 200.0 )
    					Angle ( 20.0 )
    					)
    				)
    			)
                Light	(
    			comment( Sphere of light Rear by Vince Cockeram )
    			Type		( 1 )
    			Conditions	(
    				Headlight ( 2 )
    				Unit ( 3 )
    				)
    			Cycle	( 0 )
    			FadeIn	( 0.5 )
    			FadeOut	( 0.5 )
    			States	(	1
    				State	(
    					Duration ( 0.0 )
    					LightColour ( ffffffff )
    					Azimuth ( -5.0 -180.0 5.0 )
    					Position ( 0.0 3.5 -5.0 )
    					Transition ( 0 )
    					Radius ( 88.0 )
    					Angle ( 30.0 )
    					)
    				)
    			)
    Rear sphere comes on when headlight switch is in dim position. Really neat for nighttime switching jobs.

    On the The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor there is a Tablet. On it is written:
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    regards,
    Vince, that is VERY cool. I will definitely find a use for that!

    I have had confirmation from the OR team that the cone of light will not work on anything but the 'lead' engine. The approach that was suggested (which I will try) is to make the lead articulation a 'wag' instead of 'eng', then the car body would be the lead 'eng'.

    More later
