Is it possible to disable boarding sway?

Post by jsiren on Mon Jun 16, 2014 4:28 pm

The physics modeling in OpenBVE is excellent. I really only have one complaint about it, and a minor one at that. So this is no big deal for me, just a minor annoyance. 

I tried general Google searches and several specific to this forum, but couldn't find anything relevant. If any of you have pointers, please advise.

It's somewhat ridiculous when I'm supposed to sit alone in an 80-ton locomotive and passengers boarding the four cars coupled behind it cause it to rock and roll worse than any track or pointwork enroute. Can this be disabled? I only mean the swaying that occurs whilst stationary, not that caused by motion along the track. 

For what it's worth, passengers boarding a European standard gauge passenger car don't cause a noticeable motion even inside the car, let alone in a separate locomotive. A narrow gauge lightweight tram, railcar, or D/EMU might be affected to some degree, and it probably comes from BVE's origins as a simulator of Japanese narrow gauge EMUs. I understand that the sway is also intended to indicate when boarding is finished, but then there should be an "official" way to check, depending on stock and route:
 - a door interlock light
 - the onscreen door indicator
 - a signal from the guard (conductor)
 - a platform starter signal
 - a stationmaster (or other person) giving a departure signal
 - a radio message giving a permission to depart
 - mirrors or CCTV for a visual inspection

Ah the sway, I totally agree that it's not very realistic.

It makes the whole external sway and that includes the wheels bouncing on and off the rails!

The odd train that's available with what actually is the body and the bogies configured as separate cars have both bogies plus the body swaying separately to each other.

I've always thought that the separate car config for the bogies and body should be avoided because of that.

@Stevegr: Have you ever heard of the boogie dance? Very Happy  But really, the swaying is a bit too much. :-D

Hi,

You can change the passenger ratio to 0. When the passenger ratio is 0 there is no boarding sway.

Have you tried in the station command (within the route file) setting the passenger loadings to 0?
