Trainspotting Activity Creation Query

Post by stefcurtis »

Hi Chaps,
me again!

Once again i am looking to ask some advice.

I am looking at creating a 'trainspotting' activity like some of the others available in some disc activities.

How do you go about positioning yourself on the platform & not in a loco cab?

Thanks once more in advance for your assistance.

Hi Stef,

The trick is to use an "invisi" loco to place yourself in a nice siding out of the way.
Some of these have specific settings added to them for the various views

is a good example - here the author has specifically created the eng files to create the various views.

I've no doubt that if you want; somebody here could create a customised trainspotting engine for your chosen location.
