... or (not perfect I know but it might do for the time being) keep the work you have done and edit the RotationLimit and StartDirection parameters in the *.eng file to avoid seeing the 'bad' side.

That is correct. I can use two passenger views. One facing forward in one coach and one facing backwards. This will give me views looking left and right, with the parameters in place.

Come to think of it, does the RotationLimit parameter work ih the ENG/Wag files in OR. I'm pretty sure, 360 degrees is in force with any setting ?

Thanks

Yes, I think now that you may be right. Oh well, we need a Plan 'C'

I will try for a short time on Plan C :rolleyes:

As most dedicated passenger shapes do not cover 360 degrees, does the "RotationLimit" parameter for the 'inside Passenger view' not function in OR?

Just need this confirmed before trying "Plan C"

Thanks

In fact it hasn't been implemented.

Thanks for the confirmation.

I did eventually go into the shape file via wordpad and managed to find the UV ( 942 entries ) line to fix the front end of the window. Only with a bit of luck, that UV point was in the top 100 entries. The rear end is too time consuming to find.

The progress so far:-

Having looked at my other passenger views, the Rotation Limit does play a big part to avoid seeing 'fresh air' behind your position.
I will attempt one last try on the above window, unless OR gets there first!

Thanks

There are also a lot of other passenger views where the windows them self are 100% transparent, even if they aren't supposed to be.

Hi

If possible, could you post a picture of what you have described ?

Thanks
