I originally floated this idea in the private devs forum. It has had 21 views and zero comments so far in 7 days. Currently OR is behind MSTS in this area, MSTS will allow 3 bogies plus associated wheelsets, OR only caters for 2 bogies and associated wheelsets. I am looking towards the time when we no longer have to make multi sectioned models to get round these limitations. I am seeking views on providing for up to 6 bogies and up to 6 wheelsets per bogie. I cant see anything that might need more than this.

There is one type of articulation that does give me cause for thought. That is where the bogies are attached to a bolster which is then attached to the locomotive or car. That will probably need some extra code developed in order to use it.

I don't believe MSTS supports Bogie3 and wheels31, 32 and 33. TSM documentation would have you believe this, but empirical testing 10 years ago proved this wrong...

MSTS supports four bogies, but does not apply lateral displacement.
Then, the traking of de loco is false.

I suggested many times supporting lateral displacement in OR, with zero results.

Perhaps this time someone will do....

Regards.

I, too, had a nightmare of a time trying to use the '3rd' bogie for the lateral driveshaft for (my Shay). I'm going to have to agree with Coperpen and request up to six possible bogie attachments for our models for ORTS.

Can we have this somewhere on the roadmap, or maybe a Trello card please. Without it, I do not think that OR will be able to progress beyond the multiple section models we currently have to deal with..

Yes, you're right that there's no card about "bogies" on our Trello roadmap.

But anyone can post a suggestion. Just follow the instructions. Then James will fit it into a suitable point on the Roadmap.

Under the road map for version 1.3 is a new 3d model format. Blueprint is here: https://blueprints.l...ec/or-3d-format

The blueprint seems to be material / texture oriented at the moment. Seems like a good opportunity to lobby for expanded hierarchy / model scripting.

It seems that I am unable to add a card to Trello, with the exception of the Steam board. As for the instructions download of a png, all that says is Instructions. So I sent an email to the link provided.

That added a new card for you.

Thanks,
