Track position (Track namespace)

Post by liquid_ on Thu Apr 17, 2014 5:34 am

What does exactly "track position" mean  in .csv route file: is it measured along the track or is it a projection onto axis (z I suppose)? It matters when track turns in which case the two are not the same.

It follows rail 0, and is amount of meters from the start of the route.

In case of curved track (which is a piece of circle), is it exactly track length (in perimeter sense) or is it projection onto axis (which is a bit smaller than perimeter)? Of course, in case of straight track it makes no difference.

The centre of the track, which its index is 0.

The command Track.turn is discouraged by openBVE, and it actually does the track changing effect in a quite awkward way.

The former one.
