Morning all.

I haven't seen this mentioned here or the N3V forum but is nobody else infuriated by the totally ridiculous cab sway in TANE? I'm not referring to the internal sway but that of entire carriages in the external view. As they pass an external camera or in chase mode, the level of sway would be vomit inducing for any passenger on such a train. How do I get rid of it?

My track condition is all set to 100% and it doesn't have the slightest effect. Cab sway is turned off and again, no effect. There must be something I'm missing as I can't see how people would accept this sort of physical behaviour as it is totally unrealistic.

Cheers,
Innis

Not sure if people already know about this, but in Interface Settings, there is an option to disable cabin sway. This in addition with setting JR cab sway settings to off has made the cab sway stop entirely. However, this has not changed the external sway of the train. Hope this helps.

Hi,

Yes, I have the cab sway disabled. It's the external sway I want to go places far away. :D

Afternoon, folks.

I don't know if a solution was ever found for this, so I will share the solution I found. Also, I apologize for bumping a dead thread, but again, I never saw a solution get posted here.

There are four modifiers that control suspension that can be added to a config file of a train.
suspension-stiffness "0.1" (Defaults to 0.75, 0 is floppy and 1 is rigid)
suspension-damping "0.1" (Defaults to 0.3, 0-1 is underdamped, 1 is critically damped, and >1 is overdamped)
suspension-pitch-limit "10" (Defaults to 0.5)
suspension-roll-limit "25" (Defaults to 4)

After testing these modifiers out on Peter's EMT Class 222, I found some good numbers for the pitch and roll limits. I haven't played too much with the stiffness and damping modifiers yet, but if I find anything useful, I will post it here. My numbers are "0.125" for the pitch limit and "0.3" for the roll limit. These numbers provide for a much more realistic sway at 125mph.

No need to apologise. As N3V don't seem to have implemented a solution I'm open to all suggestions. I though it was related to track condition but this appears to have no effect on the rough seas rails.

Cheers,
Innis
