    Default ORTS Container Crane?

    Seems there is a method to get a working pickup object for shipping containers. The only thing missing is a model with animation with a hierarchy similar to the default 27m turntable that has been animated in ORTS. http://www.elvastower.com/forums/ind..._1#entry226723

    A bit more complicated than just animating it. Physics will need to be incorporated into the container model and added/subtracted to/from the train physics when the container is loaded or unloaded.

    True, But no one wants to work on the subject because of the lack of a animated crane to make the effort worth while.

    I don't think that is the reason at all. There are only a small number of people writing code and there are lots of things that need to be done if OR is to move on from just being an MSTS emulator.
