Thread: Troubles Adding FA to Model

  1. #1

    Default Troubles Adding FA to Model

    Being Extremely new to the OpenRails side of the sim I am having trouble adding a simple freight anim to a model

    None of this makes any sense Hopefully someone can point out the obvious mistake?

    I have read:

    https://www.trainsim.com/vbts/showth...t=freight+anim

    While this fixed the issue of adding 2 FA's to that model I cannot get a single FA to add to a different model using the same lines


    based off green river drgw sd45):

    Wagon ( WE_SD45_1823
    Type ( Engine )
    WagonShape ( SD45.s )
    ORTSFreightAnims
    (
    MSTSFreightAnimsEnabled ( 1 )
    FreightAnimStatic
    (
    SubType ( Default )
    Shape ( Exhuast Shroud.s )
    Offset ( 0.0 0.0 0.0 )
    )
    )
    Size ( 3.318m 4.768m 19.85m )
    Mass ( 176.1t )
    WheelRadius ( 20in )
    InertiaTensor ( Box (3.318m 4.768m 19.85m) )
    Coupling (
    Type ( Automatic )
    Spring (
    Stiffness ( 4e2N/m 6e6N/m )
    Damping ( 5e6N/m/s 5e6N/m/s )
    Break ( 5.1e7N 5.1e7N )


    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Although OR (and, of course MSTS) accepts freight animations with a set of lines below the shape, you don't necessarily need all that, especially when the model only needs one freight animation and you can easily add a single line below the WagonShape (xxxx.s)

    Example, you posted the exhaust shroud. It should be added to the ENG file as follows.

    Wagon ( WE_SD45_1823
    Type ( Engine )
    WagonShape ( SD45.s )
    FreightAnim ( Exhaust_Shroud.s 1 1 )
    Size ( 3.318m 4.768m 19.85m )
    Mass ( 176.1t )
    WheelRadius ( 20in )
    InertiaTensor ( Box (3.318m 4.768m 19.85m) )
    Coupling (
    Type ( Automatic )
    Spring (
    Stiffness ( 4e2N/m 6e6N/m )
    Damping ( 5e6N/m/s 5e6N/m/s )
    Break ( 5.1e7N 5.1e7N )

    Back-up your first ENG file before attempting this. I could be wrong. But it doesn't hurt to give it a try.

    This is how I have my FA set up for two FA Wagon
    ( UP_SD40-2_2957
    Type ( Engine )
    WagonShape ( UP_SD40-2_2957.s )
    FreightAnim ( UP_SD40-2_2957_FA.s 1 1 )
    ORTSFreightAnims
    (
    MSTSFreightAnimsEnabled ( 1 )
    FreightAnimStatic
    (
    SubType ( Default )
    Shape ( UP_SD40-2_2957FAb.s )
    Offset ( 0.0 0.0 0.0 )
    )

    Id be happy to look at your issue when I get time to.

    Thanks but this repaint is supposed to have only one FA. Using the previous thread as a reference to try and piece together the lines needed to add one FA, not two.

    Zach- this is how I used to add FA in msts, It does not work in open rails the same.

    Problem solved. Turns out I forgot the underscore and never noticed it in Zach’s post.

    Thanks for the help.
