Nine years have passed since I published this video https://www.youtube....CrEONu6c&t=158s .
In this video it can be seen that the camera is able to follow a detached wagon down the hump yard. This required the generation of a slightly modified OR version, that I never published, because I'm not sure that could have been accepted for official versions.
Now a content developer, who is developing a hump yard activity, asked me about this feature. So I have decided to introduce it in OR NewYear MG rev 101.
To return from the wagon following camera to the train following camera, the camera commands to select the first or the last car must be keyed in.

Carlo, may I ask this:
About a year ago, I seen a nice function, when external camera flew around whole train from end to end, but now I can't find it again. Is it still available?

Yeah, right; numpad7+register keys! Thanks for reminding, Carlo, as I couldn't find that combination at manual once again.
Though, laptop doesn't have separate numpad, but I will try. So fantastic was to fly about my train. Very nice for making presentation videos.

So I definetly like the idea to follow cars, rolling down sorting slope. One day, I tried to descend the freight train at Odessa sorting yard. Using F9 menu.
Pity, the park had no retarders, so all cars ran out of yard tracks.

With rev. 101.2 of OR NewYear MG to get the camera following a detached car on a hump yard, the Ctrl key must be pressed while clicking with the mouse on the wagon coupler in the Train Operations Window to uncouple the car. To get the camera to follow the train again, keys 2 (or 3) have to be selected. This way operation is as usual during standard uncoupling.

Hello, I suppose you mean the Odessa 1.2 route, could you tell me where the hump yard is located?
I don't know Cyrillic ...

Thanks.

Could you tell me which route the video images belong to?

Thank you

Hola, Pedro!
I'll prepare a screenshot of map for you.
But i suspect, version 1.2 is not most recent, so try to search zdsi.kiev.ua for updating patch.
https://zdsim.com/msts/5
Odessa v1.2 enchanced '11.2013
https://zdsim.com/msts/5/odessa_v1_2
Patch v1.3 '06.2017 (new v1.2 is needed) i don't like new catenary models there
https://zdsim.com/ms...essa_v1_3_patch


Thanks weter, I have already downloaded patch 1.3 for version 1.2 that I already had downloaded.
Now you just need to know where the hunp yard is to prove it.

Thank you so much again

So much grace
