I have decided to start creating a series of small OR demonstration activities.

These activities will seek to fulfill the following purposes:
i) To demonstrate a particular feature or function within Open Rails and the correct configuration needed to implement it.
ii) To allow a user to test rolling stock configurations of their own. This can be done by replacing the existing consist with their own consist.

Currently it is recommended that the OR MG version is used to run these activities, as some of the features demonstrated are not available in the mainstream OR.

The first of this series of activities can be found on this page.

As stated elsewhere in the forum, I would like to add appropriate sounds to these activities, so if anybody can help in this area it would be appreciated.

Which features are these? Are they on the roadmap or in blueprints, do they have pull requests?

The additional features are described in the latest feature release list for MG, as well as the associated forum topics, and the demonstration activity subject.

I can see four separate features by you in that list; do you need them all? What, if anything, is preventing them being included in Open Rails? Have they been rejected, or not approved yet?

Yes, I believe that all 4 should be included.

As far as I can determine one was previously approved, one was approved in last 24 hours, and the other two are still pending approval. One the (Activity Options) had a lively discussion in the forums, but no solid outcome was reached as far as I can tell, however it is essential to ensure that the demonstration activities operate and display the features correctly being demonstrated.

The effort and timeliness to manage code commits into OR.
