Welcome to the forums.
I think if you searched a little harder, you would have an answer.
There is no mod to auto repair vehicles while playing. As nice of a mod that would be, that would involve changing the game code (exe hack).
On the other hand. You can use a tool called "wrapper" or "locotool wrapper". That tool can set the reliability of all of your vehicals to "no breakdown". Then you don't have to worry about it any more.

My Trains are made from 100% recycled electrons!
You can edit them using Locotool (search for it, there are a few threads on its operations), set reliability to 0
Read my manual. Sticky!!!

Sorry, I know this is a little off topic.
I couldnt for the love of chirst find that on here (I searched extra hard) but I did find it useing good old Google.
Download the one with the '<--- Download this!' on it.
If you decided to use the Front end, it should be easy enough to find on these forums.
If not, all you have to do is take the .dat file you want to modify (they are normally named something obvious) from the ObjData folder (normally found in C:\Program Files\Atari\Locomotion\ObjData) and drag it over Locotool. This will create an xml file, which you can edit using notpad or somesuch. You'll find the reliability in a bit of code that looks like this:
Code: Select all
<variable name="reliability" size="1">??</variable>
I recomend at this point you save the file as a slightly different name, so it dosnt overried the origanal, you can also change the ingame name by replacing the ?? in this with whatever you wanna call it:
Code: Select all
<description num="0" language="0">??</description>
Rember to save the file (as an XML file) then drag the new (or modified) xml file over the locotool app again, and it'll create your new swanky unit, which you can then throw back into the ObjData folder.
The front end wrapper does this all a lot easier, but it takes a ****ing age to start up the first time (even on modern PCs) and if (like me) you have vista, it wont work anyway. Also I find doing it with the back end code is in the end far more satisfying, and pretty easy to figure out.
Hope that helps, whilst there *is* a lot on the subject, it is all spread out and difficult to find (even with the search fucntion) so I thought I'd try and help as best I can. There are of course things Ive missed, but if you can do what Ive shown you, you should be able to work out the rest fine.
EDIT: Please remember, with new units, you need to create scenarios with them in before you can use them (or edit existing scenarios so the next time you start em they have the unit in).
