New Developments

Post  slipperman12 on Sat 18 Oct 2014, 7:13 pm

Hi All,
Perusing the ElvasTower Forum, I came across what I consider to be a very interesting feature being added to Open Rails. I apologise if it's already been mentioned elsewhere!!

An AI train will be able to couple to another AI train, Loose Consist or, even, the Player train. It's only a short sentence but I think it has powerful implications. The question has already been asked as to if it will be possible for the loco of an AI train to be detached and run elsewhere!

There's no point in me supplying a link to the thread because one has to be a member to read it. However, if you are, go to Open Rails > Developing Features > Extended AI Train Shunting; there are some working examples which can be downloaded and run in your own OR, providing it's version X2570 or later.

Cheers,
Ged

Hi Ged,
Sounds Interesting........
Will keep an eye on other developments such as Acts created within MSTS running perfectly on OR and the ability to create detailed models with TSM to run in OR and forget about the Poly size for running in MSTS.... But on the flipside is every MSTS modeller keen on going over to OR, or do we need to keep Poly sizes down after these things have been ironed out?

Hi all,

This is an exciting development which I will be looking forward to using at some point in the future. In one of my SCP activities I coupled the player loco to an ai loco which had already all but coupled to a loose consist - hence my excitement of this concept being taken even further. As stated in my S - Activities Topic I am currently converting one of my BrisCard activities to work properly in OR. This has to done in the MSTS AE but all testing is being done in OR.

Regards,

Stephen

Does anyone know if OR will be coming out with it's own Activity Editor in the future?

Those demonstrations are very impressive. The scope given by these developments is massive. OR looks like being THE future of rail sim.
