    Default Stuck Locomotives

    Hello All,

    I have recently noticed that all of the older Uboats will not move in Open Rails. U 23's, U 28's, U 33's. They work fine in MSTS but will not move more than .05 mph in Open Rails. Is it possible to correct these loco's.

    Thanks
    Kenny

    They have the wrong Units in the maxpower lines of the eng file. They have kN but should be kW. N=newtons which is a unit of force, W=watts which is a unit of power.

    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    The problem is that MSTS was programmed to only parse the first non-numeric character in the MaxPower line. If the character was "k" then the numeric was for kW, if it was "H" then numeric was HP.

    Thanks guys.

    Changing that one line with a "w" solved the problem. I've got a bunch of them to change.

    Thanks again
