How to install an .rwp file
This is a little aid for anyone building, editing or testing a route. Missing items are identified with a tall pink chimney rather than a small milk bottle, making it easy to locote the missing item(s).
I got the idea for this after using Mully's Cooling Tower which, whilst easy to spot does make it difficult to sort out the problem if their are several items missing in a small area due to its large footprint.
If you want to revert to the original Milk Bottle then navigate to Assets\Kuju\RailSimulatorCore\System\Original files and copy the files from there into Assets\Kuju\RailSimulatorCore\System\ overwriting when asked. Clear your Blueprints
Scenarios - the
quick way: Tutorial by Wotawally
Testing scenarios, especially long ones, can take several hours. This tutorial shows you an easy way to do most of the testing using two Command Line Options when starting TS: “EnableAsyncKeys” and “-followaitrain”.
These options allow you to test the scenario at up to 5x normal speed whilst the computer controls the "Player Train" for you.
Full instructions to cover starting TS2017 through the Steam Library page, a Desktop Shortcut, or in the Windows 10 start menu.
All of this information has been around for years but I haven’t seen any clear, detailed instructions anywhere. Hence this tutorial.
Whilst many know these command options already, there are many more who are either aware of them but don’t know how to use them, or are totally unaware that this sort of thing can be done
Track Protection Tutorial by Wotawally
When you are route-building or just editing a route, it is so easy to damage the track by mistake. this can have serious consequences, especially if it is not noticed immediately.
This Tutorial shows you two easy ways to prevent that ever happening again. One method is just for scenery, the other allows you to edit roads and lofts and use all the tools normally available for creating scenery whilst keeping the track safe.
Thanks to RolandBP for his help with this little project
OverSpeeding Script for TS20** by Wotawally
This is a script for use in scenarios for helping to prevent locos exceeding their permitted Maximum Speeds. Unlike others that I have seen this doesn't engage Emergency Brakes or end the Scenario.
A demo scenario for the Class55 Deltic on the GWML is included.
Also in the download are instructions to include the script into your own scenarios and information on altering the permitted speed and number of warnings.
There is a lot I don't fully understand so any help tidying it up and improving it will be appreciated.
Laying Lofts using the Offset Tools by Nick Hudson
Laying a loft is straightforward, but it can be done much easier and more accurately by using the offset tools. The offset can be made using ANY previously laid loft, road or track. The loft to be made will automatically follow the gradient(s) in the previous construct, and also keep a fixed distance from the centre line.
On the same line as "Play" go to the right past "Achievements" and you will see a cog symbol. (Before the info and star symbols)
Left-click on the cog symbol.
Scroll down to "Manage"
Select and left-click on "Browse Local Files"
This will open your Railworks folder.
