  • Slow-Speed MPH menu option can now be changed using the mouse scrollwheel
  • Fixed condition causing disappearing tunnel liners at certain angles
  • Fixed late emergency-brake audio from freight cars that were initally too far away to hear
  • Overhead Options Menu is now triggered only if the mouse is in the top-left part of the screen
  • Several signal\block\switch fixes to the following routes:
    • San Bernardino Sub
    • Seligman Sub
    • CSX Mohawk
    • CSX Selkirk
  • BNSF Bakersfield Sub also had some scenery and database fixes
  • Locomotive Failure chance has been reduced (it was reported to be happening too frequently)
  • Fixed the floating window latch on the BNSF ES44 and a missing headlight box on the SP
  • Loco Refueling and Repairing
    • Locomotives can now be refueled and repaired anywhere anytime
    • The Host Option for Loco Servicing Anywhere has been removed
    • Locomotives can be repaired by going to the Stats display and double-clicking the defect
  • TMU - Insert Car at Highlight
    • You can now insert units into the list by mouse-selecting the desired position
    • Units will be placed ahead of the selected position
    • Double-click the selected position to deselect and return to adding units at the end of the list
  • Client AI-Humping
    • The problem before was the client may have selected one of the configs, but the host's was still set for another, so when the client proceeded to AI-Hump, the host simply used whatever config it had. Whereas manual humping still happens on the client's machine, AI Humping happens host-side in V3
    • Therefor, the following changes have been made to the Hump Controller config scheme:
      • When a client opens a Hump Controller, it automatically pulls-down the current hump-config from the Host (the old "Pull Configuration" button has been removed)
      • The client can then select or modify the config as usual
      • When the client Enables the hump, the config is automatically pushed to the Host; the currently selected config is also now part of that data. You can also still manually push to the host
      • The host now matches what the client-humper intended, and if the client-humper begins AI Humping, the host will AI-Hump accordingly
