Should push-pull cab cars be compatible with EVERY loco in set?

Poll ended at 22 May 2020 12:48

Yes (I want some extraordinary compositions, I can't check every description to understand will it work or no, etc)

No (I'm fine with existing compatibility)
2

You can add a few more compatibilities (cars and locos are compatible, if operating railroad bought both cars and locos)

Man, I'm torn... can you code this as a configurable option and let the user change it from a default if they wish?
Well, If first opinion wins, I will make all locomotives compatible with each push-pull car (I really don't wanna do it, because it will take minimum a week :D), then I can do a parameter for enabling only compatible engines, but I think most people will not use such exotic combinations to add larger compatibility.

1. Were there instances where companies mixed their locomotives and cars?
2. Are you intending this to be a historic and accurate representation of companies, or are you more open to imaginative gameplay?

Amtrak's "Rainbow Era" is pretty interesting period, would like to do some liveries from there :).

I've been working on new 10/8 coaches to match this set's generic scale (~1.5 px per m), and here's progress:

There are dome, dome-observation and observation cars left, then I will code it and maybe push an update, because there is a mess of new stuff I done since last update :D

Nice :)
But on the topic of length, does that mean that the coaches would get longer? Because I loved the fact that your set has a coach length very similar to original TTD, and it would pain me to lose that, especially if the "silver" look on this new stuff appears to be matching sets like the US Set, which I am using together with yours...

Well, yes. most coaches are going to be longer, so there will be more diversity in types and realism. If You want, I can do an GRF that adds normal length' coaches, so you will not loose them. Also, some locos will also be oversized.
