    yes, real RR trains operate in a world full of rich sights, smells and sounds around them, things of nature and things of man both: they don't operate in a black void like outer space
  2. no, it's a matter of: 1. adding night sounds...

    no, it's a matter of:

    1. adding night sounds as croaking frogs and chirping crickets
    2. reducing or removing static vehicles parked and people in businesses closed or with reduced activity at...
  3. Thanks John: I might add a croaking frog sound...

    Thanks John:

    I might add a croaking frog sound to my nighttime edition. I just think it exciting and spooky to see bright headlights coming in the dark. My forested areas look totally eerie in the...
  4. Do you have a different version of your model route for nighttime play?

    I have decided to make a modified version of my layout for night play only. The night has different sights and sounds associated with it. Not as many people waiting at train stations. Not as many...
  5. The custom body sidings I made are for static...

    The custom body sidings I made are for static trucks only anyway so they will never move in game play. Naturally I would not do this to driveable content.
  6. One could use wood fence spline to make a...

    One could use wood fence spline to make a stake-side truck out of a flatbed to boot. Is there a way to put stanchions in the boxes of static pickup trucks?

    As a matter of fact, I indeed made one...

    Trainz is much like physical model RR hobby. Scavenging odds and ends to make things. Black thread for telephone wires, a thread spool to make a spool of cable, a match stick for a sign post, etc.
  8. Do your flatbed trailers and trucks have bulkheads?

    I made some out of splines as shown in pictures below. Now the drivers won't get bad headaches should the loads shift forward into the cab.


    For the 45ft flatbed,<kuid2:386914:1007:2> by...

    I was in Germany, 1993-1995, with the army. A sergeant told me the Germans were nuts about their trains. I rode on their U-bahn.
  10. The Tom Thumb was the first American steam...

    The Tom Thumb was the first American steam locomotive, 1830. The first American railway was the B&O, 1827. We imported our rolling stock and rails from the Brits originally.
  11. So America didn't invent rail transportation after all.

    The railway system in Great Britain is the oldest in the world: the world's first locomotive-hauled public railway opened in 1825. Most of the railway track is managed by Network Rail, which in 2015...
  12. Did you know there are locos that think they're boats?

    And there are boxcars that think they are young water-skiing girls in bikinis, talk about stacked freight!

    Now that I have the semi trucks (locos) all fine-tuned on my layout (except for AI...
  13. I will just be satisfied by whatever others have...

    I will just be satisfied by whatever others have made already that I can download and maybe tweak a bit in config. I will dive in no deeper than that.
    I have no endeavors to achieve a Doctorate in...
  14. By steering wheels you mean "front tires" that...

    By steering wheels you mean "front tires" that make contact with the road. Like the rotating bogies on RR rolling stock. The "steering wheel" that the driver puts his hands on doesn't need to be...

    The ATS maps aren't to scale either and neither is the time and the daylight hours.

    The sun simply doesn't rise and set within an hour real time.

    Good luck driving to Sacramento to...
  16. I've actually gotten bored with the truck...

    I've actually gotten bored with the truck simulator and resumed Trainz again. When Trainz bores me, I'll move back to the truck sim. Adding new things as driveable boats and road vehicles makes...
  17. I'll probably then pass with notion of...

    I'll probably then pass with notion of home-rolling asserts myself from scratch.

    I don't need the steering wheel to turn, just the front wheels on the road. In the Kenworth tractors the wheels...
  18. I would like to learn how to convert a static...

    I would like to learn how to convert a static vehicle into a Trainz "locomotive".

    The tires will have to roll when the vehicle moves and the front tires should also steer.
    The driveable car,...
  19. Are there any downloadable driveable "train vehicles" (traincars) in the guise of:

    1. automobiles, ordinary passenger cars?
    2. classic 1950's-1970's cars?
    3. straight commercial trucks? (not tractor-trailers)
    4. yellow school buses?
    5. power boats?
    6. sailboats?
    7....
  20. I've been trying to use the TMS rule to try to keep trucks stopped at crossings.

    I use a trigger and an invisible signal (navy blue cake slice on a stick with red, yellow and green dots).

    Sometimes AI will hold for 10 minutes or longer but other times they drive right through...

    Yes, Brenner as the gunslinger in black gone wild with a vengeance. "Get this boy a bib. He needs his momma."

    Dick Van Patten (Eight is Enough) as "the new law in town".

    I don't think I would...

    Thanks, pware. This is the first time I found out that commands can be given in Driver Setup. Up until now, I thought this was only for assigning drivers to vehicles. Is it true Wait For 5 seconds...
  23. Thanks, but this is over my head. Often I will...

    Thanks, but this is over my head. Often I will have to close down a session and edit the Schedule Library
    itself because there is a problem with AI during test runs.

    A couple of weeks ago I...
  24. No, I don't want to copy any libraries from one...

    No, I don't want to copy any libraries from one session to the next. I want all my AI drivers to all start automatically driving as soon as the initial session in Driver is launched.
  25. Creates a library of driver schedules (driver...

    Creates a library of driver schedules (driver command lists) that can be given to drivers during the creation or running of a session.
