Thread: OTTO controlling hand throws bug or test?

  1. #1

    Default OTTO controlling hand throws bug or test?

    Just an observation, but when i ran some engines under AI control from West Colton receiving yard to the service road, and had it set to relinquish when stopped and i had the manual switches set against the engines, OTTO reset the road for the engines to continue out the other side, i even reset the switches again and OTTO again reset them.

    If OTTO is off the switches would not move.

    This only happens in V3.

    Maybe RUN 8 is testing this or it is a bug with my install either way i hope they revert it back as it means i have to baby sit engines that are heading to the fuel roads while i am trying to switch or work other trains, and i really do not want to switch off OTTO every time i have make a move.

    I have not tested anywhere else where this happens.

    I believe I've seen hand throws in certain places as well. Not so much in the SW that I'm aware but certainly I recall somehting in Barstow around Old Yard once.

    Thanks

    Switch if you can recreate this that would be great and post in the thread for possible bugs with what you did and possible screenshots as well of culprit switches..Thanks

    For me it only happened once I think near Old Yard when a train was coming in. I know the switches reset to a certain position before coming to an area (sort of like the crossing gates are on when you come in rapidly). Haven't seen this issue in the SE, have you Switcher?

    Thanks
