Customizing appearance of generic bumper/buffer stop

Post by Sheldon Cooper »

Hi Jan, it's nice to have a bumper/buffer option, but how is the position of it on the track determined? By experimentation, it seems to be located about 25% of the track section length from the end, which means the actual distance from the end depends on which track it is attached to. How about making it a fixed proportion of the track width instead, which would make it scale/gauge independent?

Hi Sheldon,

the upcoming version 6.3 just entered the public beta phase today and includes an inspector for generic bumpers where the type of bumper (e.g. classic bracket or Hayes) as well as the position inside the track can be adjusted!

Hope this helps,
Jan

Hi there -
I can see that there are a couple dozen email addresses not yet confirmed on our beta mailing list;
The service we're using requires subscribers to confirm the subscription in order to prevent spam and to comply with regulations like GDPR and the likes.

You can currently access the beta here:
