i believe that message is a fallthrough that only happens on 06 distant signals. that means its using the wrong signal script type.

there are

04signal.gs
05signal.gs
06Dsignal.gs
06signal.gs
and 08signal.gs

these will be referenced in the JRS_signal.gs script

for instance the top line should say

Code: [Select]
include "04signal.gs"
for an 04 type behavior.

as i said above, if these need functional tweaks as far as the script goes, additional types can be added to the library. it may be easier to construct new aspect set-ups for these than use the ones in the above scripts. for instance showing different lights in the signal state function.

i have updated the signal library to my latest version at jointed rail so you can experiment with that. you can find it here Signal FX Library. this should be revision 6 version 1.61.


also - great job on these they are looking very nice!

Thank you Justin =)
I'll try to do as you said.

If I fail, might you'll be able to make these signals are operable? I'm prepared and will give you all the basic versions of these signals. In fact there were only LODs and configure script, which I did not get.

Justin, I did as you said, and lights working  :headspin:!

But I want to say that the evidence is not a lot do not correspond to the original system CPL.
For example on the main head  aspects can not be "flashing yellow" "lunar white" and so on. This aspect needs to appear on additional lamps at the top or bottom of the main head. (as in the picture below).
I imagined it, and said earlier about the differences in this system.

Justin, can you remake the scripts for these lights?

The main modifications I did was 3 lights with various position under / over the main signal head.

With work lights i have read on this site.

By the way, I even translated the manual into Russian :D! So I fully understand the principle of operation of the system of lights :salute:.

yes that is what i was talking about. if i could have an example of each type... for instance, the absolute single track signal (04) the intermediate single track signal with number plate or G (05) the D marked signal (06D) the signal with the upper or lower arms (06).

Wow; those look great! To bad I don't understand the color position light signal's. Nice job though!  :clap:

Those would be a good reason to learn them.

I spent two days and could do nothing  :facepalm1: ....
Don't figured out a script, no lights not working as it should work.  :-[.

Justin, can you help? I throw off you these 4 traffic lights, can you look?

I  ??? do not know what to do :onfire:.


By the way, the system has a library of meshes, lenses  and LOD.

Justin, I will send you the evening of each type of lights.
I made them according to the type constructor, so they can be combined as want. :cheers:

p.s.
If this works out to make lights, will you not against their placement on your website :duck2:?

Hello everyone  :cheers:
That completed the all the basic CPL system modifications. It turned out 17 lights on the masts 17, 22 and 30 feet.


The first screenshot shows that the visible indication of the next signal at 2000 meters (1.24 miles)

Demonstration of the lens by 14 digit signal.

Demonstration of the corona effect at a distance.

Now I have to send lights Justin and while he was working to make them, I'll create dwarf signals. After the transfer of lights back to me, I'll do them just for the left hand placed on double-track sections and modification of signals Deshler (where the mast with the peaks).
 :headspin:
Justin, do you have ICQ? It would be convenient to discuss the working moments.

Great work Alex! If you don't mind could you make these also available to be used on gantries, and could you fix the height of them to match up with the JR Signal Gantries.



Thanks

 :clap:

Yeah, gantries would be very welcome.

But then....
I think it would be great to have two versions. One that matches JRs gantries plus one with the original height, if that changed (and I suppose it did).
So they can also be used on times before double-stacks.

Anyway, awesome work, sir(s)!
