View Full Version : Class 66 High Beam (illumination)

November 21st, 2011, 11:43 AM
I recently ran trainz at night...and found a class 66 thats High Beam illuminated the track and objects in front of it.
So i tried all the other class 66's (about 30 of them that i have) and not one had this.


Is there anyway to put this on the other class 66's ?
I have tried copying bits from one train to the other in config files with no joy.
I even tried different tracks

Is illumination of the high beam in the mesh or Config files ?

Hope someone can help out

Except that the 'high beam' lighting isn't very accurate either, it's far too bright and illuminating. I think that's why many creators don't bother with using that style of lighting.

That said, if freightliner were to strap led lensers to the front of their class 66s, they could probably get lighting somewhat close to that :)
