Thread: Slow lever movement

  1. #1

    Default Slow lever movement

    Hello,

    I run into a problem especially when driving steam that the movement of the levers when using keyboard is too slow, it takes forever to move the reverser forward and aft for instance. Is there any way to speed up the response to keyboard inputs so that these levers can be manipulated a little better?

    Hi...

    In my following image - it's the 3rd field on each control which sets the number of notches - you can speed it up by making the notches bigger. See the highlighted line and the third field highlighted in black:

    Hi Scott (or anyone else). Do you have a reference for what all the cab control values are? Each couple of years when I build another cab I have to relearn everything. A central source of truth would be a time saver.

    Cheers,

    Marek.

    Hi Marek,

    Yeah - honestly - I just copy my old controllers from one locomotive to the next. I use "include" files which makes it pretty transportable.

    Hi...

    Thanks - she's in the shops now - the LHR model is quite old - my skills have improved a bit since then. I'm working on the B&M R-1-A first - I plan on going through the series until I get to the R-1-D again - of which the LHR model was based. There will be far more detail and some better textures.

    Hi Marek,

    Thank you sir - a long way to go - as I suspect you know from modeling but I've been making good progress. Been working on all the piping lately.

    Regards,
    Scott
