    Update: Engine folder renamed to BSNF for the fix to work with SD75M_BNSF loco. Please redownload

    If you have already installed the patch you can also go to Assets\RSC\SD75Pack01\RailVehicles\SD75M\ and rename the folder "BNSF" to "BSNF" for the fix to work. The engine refers to the "wrong" folder


    Fortunately, the engine script was not compiled so I could fix that.

    Originally it had 4 positions, Off, Front, Back, Front+Back. This did not work.

    I adjusted the .bin files to use 3 notches Off, Front, Back

    and removed the 4th state from the lua script. Headlights work fine now.

    As always, install with Utilities.exe -> Package Manager or as you wish...

    You're welcome. You can also see the switch now resting in the correct position.

    I like this loco. Nice addition.

    The SD75M BNSF has the issue still. I will update.

    Edit: Cause found. RSC named the engine folder BSNF instead of BNSF. I have to adjust the folder name of the patch to that. ;)

    Updated pack to follow....

    Thanks for your reply, there's nothing I can do about it easily. All three locos use the same script, which means they SD75I probably has slightly different light definitions in its blueprint...

    Edit: As this is a non-casting light source the difference is to be found in the GeoPcDx. Nothing I can do about that.
