All Five Car_s And The Minus Five Preset
For this next example we’ve again created a WagenDaten_ including models for all the Car_ types except for the LinkCar_.
Of course you’ve noticed that this time around we’ve managed to reduce the number of cars in the train to 1. yet in the previous slideshow where we created a 5 Car_ train, all 5 cars placed on the track. You’ll recall that there we were unable to reduce the original number of cars in that train although we were able to add additional MiddleCar_s.
We’ve managed it this time around by using a value of -
What happens, though, if your RearCar_ model isn’t suitable for use on the front of the train? We’ll see in the next slideshow …
The same train is again shown in this image but instead of reducing the car count to 1 we reduced it to 2. Now there is a FrontCar_ and a RearCar_ on the track.
If we want to present our train to the gamer with these two cars to start we’d create our WagenDaten_ with a value of -
Let’s see what happens when we reduce both the aforementioned values to -
Now there’s a SecondCar_ along with the FrontCar_ and the RearCar_ displayed in the previous image. With our -
If we wanted the gamer to have the option to reduce the car count number on this train to two cars we’d enter a value of -
With a value of -
Again, if we wanted the gamer to have the option to reduce the car count number on this train we’d enter a value of -
Finally, with both the CarCountPerTrainMin field and the CarCountPerTrainPreset field each given a value of -
You’ve probably noticed the minus values don’t exactly match the number of cars showing up in the trains in this demo: in fact these values as we should perceive them are off by one car. That’s because CTR Creator counts a single car on the track as zero cars.
In view of that, if we wanted the gamer to place all five cars in this demo train as a preset and we didn’t want them to be able to reduce the number of the cars on this track we’d have an easier time of it creating the WagenDaten_ with a value of 0 in the CarCountPerTrainMin field along with the value of 0 entered into the CarCountPerTrainPreset field.
We’d do that because in addition to CTR Creator counting a single car on the track as zero cars, it will also count all the Car_ types we entered into our WagenDaten_ as a single unit and will identify this unit in the the track’s Vehicles console as zero cars.
