Outstanding work as usual, Cesar. I loved the original, I know you totally rebuilt this from the ground up and it shows. Now If I can only figure out how to light up the cab gauges at night. !**duh*!!

Manual is all... *!!wink!!*

Ctrl+H: Cab Lights
Ctrl+Shift+H: Step Lights
N: Strobe Light
Shift+N: Number boards Lights
M: Front mirrors
Shift+M: Rear mirrors

However, so far I noticed, the Step Lights are not exactly lighting the steps (ladder?) up but lighting instead the front/rear deck which is named by RSC in other locos as tail light (DD40X has one on the front, two on the rear).

Hi
Thanks for the quick response Cesar. Outstanding new model. I loved the original so this will no doubt get a work out.

Is it me, or is the Dynamic brake a bit strong? I only have to move it up to like 13% and the train rapidly decrease in speed from 50mph.

I absolutly love the DD40X!! !!*ok*!! She is a magnificent beast! I took her out by herself and got up to 80mph, then whipped out the dynamic break and slowly dropped to 5mph in a matter of seconds. haha you can truly feel the raw power of the 6600 horsepower dual engines. I only wish every time i turn the lights on it wouldnt lag, but thats my own problem :D

Holy cow! Animated brakes!
This is top-notch work, LordMannu.

I would add simer4's sounds for even more awesomeness.

Did you get to add them? Is the same way of adding to SD40-2W Wide Nose? It worked?

I haven't bought the DD40X yet, but I presume there would be no problem adding the sounds by changing the 3 proxyxml files, as I did for the different SD40 DLCs.

I gave a look into and noticed that the DD40X proxyxml files are different. Only copying the 3 files probably won't work, some editing will be needed.

BTW mine Widenose has the simer4 sound in cab, but is the next line of your bat correct?
Code: Select all
COPY /Y %src%\Cab\"SD40 Cab.proxyxml" %rw%\Assets\RSC\%%i\Audio\RailVehicles\Diesel\SD40\Cab\"SD40 Cab.proxyxml"


Shouldn't be the next, once in original simer4 pack his file is "Class SD40 Cab.proxyxml", instead "SD40 Cab.proxyxml"? Just to be sure... *!!wink!!*
Code: Select all
COPY /Y %src%\Cab\"Class SD40 Cab.proxyxml" %rw%\Assets\RSC\%%i\Audio\RailVehicles\Diesel\SD40\Cab\"SD40 Cab.proxyxml"

hey, the update of the DD40AX that you sent me didn't come with a file to turn on the keyboard shortcuts, and i can't get it to move unless it is a light engine, and anything over 50% throttel no matter the speed it will spin the wheels.

Hi there!

Hey what file is that which turn on/off keyboard shortcuts? does it means that I can edit it to turn on/off some keys like 2, 3 etc. also?

Thanks,
Doc.
