Autopilot Function.


Recommended Posts

Just stop all input to the sim, wait about a minute or so, and autopilot will take over,
Tho i noticed it's been tweeted with the latest release, driving a passenger train at 120Km/h i had zero warnings about being idle,

I noticed the czuwak was going off a lot more in the EU07, so i was pretty much having input at least once a minute even when going slower and having 2Km between signals.

That would be a pain, thank you Sean. Surely if the game has an autopilot function. It should be easily usable by the players.

Thanks anyway buddy.

Agreed. You could be driving and something come up and you'll need to step away from the PC for a bit but you don't have the time to wait for autopilot to kick in after however many minutes it is at the moment, but to enable it almost instantly so you can step away ASAP. Leaving the game to the menu and hoping you can have your train back after being gone for some moments shouldn't be the only option.

If you're driving a freight train and need the toilet, get on the radio and ask the dispatcher in your area to put you in a siding... the one nearest the bushes please.

bold to assume someone that needs the toilet has a 3-5 minutes to get into the nearest siding haha 😂😂

well... there is a reason most locomotives have alerter reset buttons near the cab door,

:

i recall reading about a German freight train that was found stopped on the line with no driver many years ago (the safety systems had stopped it)... he'd fallen out the door when having a pee whilst the train was in motion.

That is absolutely not the reason for having DSD buttons near the doors. The reason is that when shunting, or when departing with a passenger train from a platform, drivers may need to look out of the side window while the train is moving. There’s also generally an additional simple drive handle and train protection buttons next to the windows on both sides, for the same reason.

If that story is true, then what that driver did was not only incredibly dangerous (evidently), but also incredibly against regulations.

oh come on,  can't you tell i'm joking about the shunting controls.

I even have a shunting control panel from a German locomotive (not the BR-111 that my driving desk came out of) so i know what it's for.

 

 

And the driver... we'll you can throw the book at him for breaking regulations if you want, but he was found dead on the tracks (the bit i deliberately left out to keep with the jokieness of my comments)  it was also back in the 1980's i believe.

ok, usually with me i'm either trying to be helpful, or joking around, i must make use of the emoticons more to convey this.

i've found the story i read about the train driver falling from a train whilst having a pee, this version is from a UK newspaper distributed on public transport (train and bus stations etc)
