rear end cab?

Post by mrknowitall on Tue May 14, 2013 11:33 am

So then, recently i have been tinkering with the class 390 cab, i have changed the panel.txt to a panel.animated but instead of adding a 3d cab i have basically added the 2d panel and got all the commands working as on a normal 2d cab but i've added the tilt command in, so that around corners the cab tilts too, but upon having a play with the exterior view, i changed the car to the last cab, so you could watch the train run around the corners with a tilt, and then i thought about a while back when people was asking about a cab working at the other end, so i gave it ago and added the 3d cab inside the last carriage of the 390, with the camera fixed to the last carriage, and changed the position so that you are affectively looking out of the rear cab, and it runs brilliantly, all i have done is changed the reverser commands around so that if you wish to run back from hammerwich all the controls are correct, now i remember a few players on OpenBVE saying they only look at the exterior upon arrival at the station, so would this be more of a added extra for drivers of the game? if it can work as well on the 156's as well as it had on the 390 you could have endless fun going to and from on NWM with no compromise? just a thought that i came about whilst tinkering with the camera position, i wouldn't mind knowing actual players thoughts on this.

That sounds pretty cool. Smile So, you've made it so that when you get to the end, you don't have to pause and jump to change ends after finishing the first run. That's what a lot a people have been wanting. Are you going to try to add that to other trains as well?

Yes that's what I mean, and yes I'm thinking off adding that to all the pioneer train stock

I wonder why this topic isn't getting very many hits? Neutral

I'd certainly like to try driving a double-ended unit, but have you got a downloadable file or example code for a starting point?
