Description
Add this invisible wagon to the rear of any train to make it reverse

Why this mod? Drive Back is a great mod, but it's global and I wanted to have some trains reverse and some not. This isn't a global mod and the wagon must be added to each train that you want to reverse instead of flipping around. This mod works with all trains, vanilla and modded, regardless of whether they were originally capable of reversing.

Drive Back must be disabled.

Update 23/12/2018: safeguard against mod wagons which have an empty engines array defined
Update 20/12/2018: changed wagon's speed limit and made to work with modded and vanilla locos

Acknowledgement: thank you to the creator of the Drive Back mod (HectorSalazar) for showing how to modify vehicles on a global basis.

With the new 'thank you patch' they should reverse automaticly, but when I tried it (without using your mod) on a Dutch Mat '64 the patch didn't work. When I used your mod on one side of the Mat '64 it didn't work either...Only when I use your mod on the front and on the backside of the train your mod works...

It does however work on a passengertrain where a locomotive on the front is used and a control car is used on the back. When I place the invisible wagon behind the control car the train reversed...Only one thing didn't work unfortunatly and that is the lights. The front light of the locomotive stays on white when the train drives backward and the red light on the control car stays red when the train reversed. I guess you can't change that because lights are placed in the control car itself if you know what I mean...

But still...thanks for a great mod, I wanted to use this for a long time ;)

I choose the mod in my savegame and nothing happend so i have no invisible wagon in my game?

Ok. sorted. I've added an extra check for an empty engines array and made sure other stuff still works.

It's the hopper wagon. It has this engines = { } whereas all other wagons do not have engines array defined at all. I check for engines to be nil to decide whether something is a wagon or not. I'll see if I can fix it without breaking everything else

Hi, Yes it is the combination of these two:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1251470539&searchtext=turbobastard as engine and
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=873149528
as a wagon.

Using the engine with other wagons does not have the same effect. Only in conjunction with those wagons. I checked the model files myself but could not find anything that would suggest that either of them are reversible.
sebastian.me  [author] Dec 22, 2018 @ 1:27am 
In order to not make all wagons reverse (like Drive Back) I only add reversible=true to rail vehicles which do have an engine. Therefore I suspect that those particular wagons must have an engine, or the mod author added reversible=true to them.

Could you link the ones you are having trouble with, so that I can check them out and see how I can change the code to cater for them?

But otherwise, works perfectly.
