Big Boy Turntable

To install:

1) Unzip the file Big_Boy_Turntable.zip

2) Start TrainSimulator 2012

3) Open the PackageManager Tab

4) Select the Install Button

5) Navigate to the Big_Boy_Turntable.zip file that was unzipped in step 1

6) Double click the rwp file, and TrainSimulator 2012 will automatically install

To use in a route:

In the World Editor Mode Use the asset selector  and check provider RHam and product Addon Select the Track icon Select the Turntable Icon In the list of assets, the turntable is called 'Turntable Big Boy' Select it and place it in your route Choose the paintbrush icon and use the height tool to push down the terrain inside the turntable to reveal the turntable bottom

This asset was made for fun and for free.  Authors of Freeware Routes may package this turntable with their routes. Payware and donationware authors must contact me (dick8299) in the forums if they wish to include this asset in their routes.

Also included in the package is a 'clone' of the Big Boy engine that has been modified to be less likely to tip when activating the turntable.  The ease of derailment line in the engine and tender bin files has been set to zero. This package will not overwrite anything in your Steam folder, it will place three new files in the Assets\IHH\Big Boy\RailVehicles\Steam\BigBoy\Default folder. 

Note, you MUST ALREADY OWN the Big Boy DLC from Steam for these files to work.

The files are Assets\IHH\Big Boy\RailVehicles\Steam\BigBoy\Default\Engine\BB_FrontFrames_Blueprint - TT.bin;

Assets\IHH\Big Boy\RailVehicles\Steam\BigBoy\Default\Engine\BB_RearFrames_Engine_Blueprint - TT.bin;

and Assets\IHH\Big Boy\RailVehicles\Steam\BigBoy\Default\Tender\BB_Tender_Coal - TT.bin (the TT suffix designates Turntable)

The asset names of the three files are: 

BigBoy  Frontframes TT;

Big Boy 4-8-8-4 TT;

and Big Boy Tender TT;

select them and place in the scenario the same way you do the default Big Boy engine asset.

A note on disappearing turntables:

With the advent of RW3, turntables (and manual switch stands) can disappear after saving an edit to the scenario.  This affects both 3rd party addons and default items.  The turntables are still there, but do not become visible until called on by the simulator.  Once called on, they remain visible for any subsequent restarts of the scenario, until the scenario is edited again.  To work around this (if it is a problem to you), when editing the scenario, add a locomotive and driver to a track approaching the turntable (making note of the service name); save the scenario; select the locomotive and press g (or shift g) to align the turntable with the active track.  The turntable is now visible and will remain so.  If you do not want to leave the engine and driver at that position in your scenario, exit TrainSimulator 2012, and edit the scenario using RW_Tools to delete the added locomotive, save the changes to the scenario, and then also use the delete empty consist button for the scenario.  The scenario should then be usable per your original intention and the turntable will be visible.

This asset works on my computer and was beta tested by another community member.  It should not cause any harm to your system or TrainSimulator installation.  If there is a problem with it, first delete the turntable from any routes you added it to using the World Editor, then use the Package manager of TrainSimulator 2012 to uninstall the package, or simply delete the Steam\steamapps\common\railworks\Assets\RHam\Addon\RailNetwork\turntables\BigBoyTurntable folder.
