[0.16.47] Train turns in the wrong direction.

Post by Wizard Marcos » Thu May 31, 2018 10:39 pm

After the latest update, when fixing the way trains turn when reversing, driving while inside locomotives in reverse does not turn in the correct direction if you are not accelerating.

Notice the following 2 screenshots (taken at night to show the headlight):
1st example - facing forward
2nd example - facing backwards
In the first case, if I press right while the train is moving, I switch right at the intersection.
In the second case, if I press right while the train is moving, I switch right at the intersection if I'm also pressing forwards (accelerating). If I am not accelerating, the train goes straight (and turns left if it finds such intersection).

I believe that while this is the intended behaviour for train cars, it's not for locomotives.

EDIT: Thanks Jap2.0 for the spoiler fix.

The text you want to be the title of the spoiler should be inside the first pair of brackets. Additionally, spoilers are ridiculously picky about what goes inside them, so anything other than alphanumeric characters (i.e. colons and parenthesis) won't work either - yes, it's annoying - so instead of

Code: Select all

[spoiler=]1st example (facing forward):[img]https://i.imgur.com/MjuT97U.png[/img][/spoiler]
and

Code: Select all

[spoiler=]2nd example (facing backwards):[img]https://i.imgur.com/BZaSnwz.png[/img][/spoiler]
You would have

Code: Select all

[spoiler=1st example facing forward][img]https://i.imgur.com/MjuT97U.png[/img][/spoiler]
and

Code: Select all

[spoiler=2nd example facing backwards][img]https://i.imgur.com/BZaSnwz.png[/img][/spoiler]
Which correctly results in
1st example facing forward
and
2nd example facing backwards
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

I also experience the same issue randomly, not all the time though.

Thanks for the report. It's now fixed for the next version of 0.16.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
