    Default Acela by J.A.V. Open Doors

    Hello again, a minor issue with the new download. The Locomotives look and function great, Thank You!
    My question is about the Animated Doors. When in a Station OR shows me the Doors are open, they are not. Shape Viewer does the same, but there the doors are Open??? and will not animate Closed.

    This is using the Animated coaches as provided and updated, any suggestions? Otherwise a really good download to update some "ancient" files that works, for the most part.

    Thanks. Means a lot.

    Regarding the doors, I just did skins on the passenger cars. No editing the .s files inside out other than the quiet car. This has been a thing since the original acela files by Adam: the doors open when the pantograph is down.

    Thank you for that, I had hoped that the issue would have been solved by now.

    What portion of the Car File contains the door information? The doors seem to work fine on other models, particularly the VIA Coaches with the Drop-Steps.

    Oh well, thanks for the repaints, they do look great!

    Actually, I first wanted to take a crack at that in sfm too before I released the set. Didn't go well. If you want to, the section should begin with something like this in notepad when you uncompress it:

    Thanks. I and many others appreciate your contribution and talent!

    I kind of figured it would be in something to do with animation. I will have a look at the ones that work and see if I can find something similar to work with.
