So, in the final version of their CPL signals visibility will be limited to 1500 m, as in real life. With maximum visibility signals from 800 to 1500, we note that at large distances there dispersion and aberration of light, so there is no point in making a high visibility signals, namely over 1500m.

By the way, in the above pictures you do not need to use zoom camera, because as the aberration of light increase with zoom control to multiplicity of.

Thanks for the review above  :)

the cab view is what is causing the others to come into view at a different time. i had tested long ago in TS09 the maximum view distance and since it is way beyond what cab mode lets you see they are fine.

I used the Zoom function to make the coronas easier to see. As far as the input and reviews, I'm happy to help any way I can. As far as the cab view comment, I would assume for prototypical simulation, a train would be operated from the cab, therefore I decided to test signal visibility from the cab. They are perfectly fine how they are. I think they're awesome. But, as we are beta testing them, I figured I'd point out the difference, in case Alex wants them to be as prototypical as possible.

By the way, the maximum visible distance from the cab in Trainz 900 meters, but I think does not affect the effect of the corona.

update^

Today I started to do the Gantry signals ))) Then will I do dwarfs CPL signals.
Portals will be do both at the station Cincinnatian and later possibly will do more variety.

Hi guys!
Can not Find blueprints for such gantry.

Maybe you have blueprints? Because of their absence job is very slow :-\.
This type gantry:

Ask those guys.

Pretty sure they have what you need.

More light for the thoughts that I dig
More light in the places I stay
More light on the path that I walk
More light 'round the questions that I bear

2 Justin, is it possible to adjust the signals perpendicularly the axis of the path?
Is very difficult install in some places and junctions. Make multiple copies of a signals with the same value not a solution.

Maybe add the ability to regulate the installation of signals in the menu of the traffic light and make memorization the script properties?



This month I create draftt signals.   :headspin:

Don't mean to drag up an old post but I am wondering if these were ever completed and released.  I am currently working on the Parkersburg Sub of the B&O and a full set of CPLs sure would be handy.
