    It doesn't have yet but I'll maybe add them in the future. Currently it uses diesel sounds from the T-series.

    is it just me, or does it look somewhat like an EMD SD40-2? in that case then, why not give it a name such as "DMS division of Gavril BV40-2? DMS of course being Diesel Mobility Solutions and BV meaning better version (joke as to how SD series engines are better than their weaker GP counterparts)

    Did the wheels explode or did the whole train explode?

    So i tried to increase pressure in wheels from 30 to 100 and they become huge... Only wheels not train... My current config looks like this
    Code:
    //general tire values
                {"nodeWeight":0.3},
                {"nodeMaterial":"|NM_RUBBER"},
                {"frictionCoef":1.35},
                {"triangleCollision":false},
                {"pressurePSI":40},
                {"maxPressurePSI":1600},
                {"dragCoef":10},

    NodeWeight is way too low. You seem to be using tires. My train has only wheel hubs and it works very well.

    {"hasTire":false},
    Add this line of code and it won't spawn the tires.

    After hours of work, it finally has working couplers (90% of that time was bug fixing, not actual work)

    BTW, could it be acceptable to add more power to this (maybe +2000 hp or +3000 hp) since with 3000 hp it is REALLY SLOW and it takes A LOT of time to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmh / 60 mph. The reason for slow acceleration could be BeamNG's inefficient CVT transmission which it is using. Real locomotives use efficient diesel-electric transmissions. The CVT was the most accurate I could get but it's still very far from diesel-electric. Increasing its power would make it more unrealistic, but at the same time it also would add realism by making the acceleration faster and more realistic. What do you think?
