Summary0004793: You cannot select trains in the map editor

You should be able to select trains in the map editor.

Im not sure if this has been overlooked or if its actualy intentional due to a bug or something.

To make the editor more complete this should be included for release in my opinion.

TagsNo tags attached.

If you spawn a train (IN-GAME) they spawns on the rails

thats not the point
the point is you want to be able to create one with the editor and not have to go and use notepad or whatever to create a train or trailer or railcar etc

Issues I found:

They are lacking names in browser because getVehicleNameFromModel has no return. This could be hacked in.

This would be a lot harder because when you create one and move it around with keys it will become lost because the physical element can not move with the red box. The element viewer would also need changing to a place where the train ended up so people can preview it.

I really thought that returned trailernames.

Nice, but when they're spawned it still says "vehicle () (1)"

Well I was trying to add trains but unfortunately trains are such weird things it won't work.

When you place and move a train, the element position is set incorrectly and the bounding box becomes no where near the train, the editor does a setElementPosition if you hold left key for example, the position of the train updates and so does its bounding box. However the actual train does not follow, so the element position becomes mismatches with the actual position of the train.

The train element becomes desynched with the trains position because of GTA SA forcing it to the nearest train track, and the trains element position becomes wrong.

So this issue is currently, not possible to fix and the only possible work around would be to let people only place/delete a train. Not much point in that really when trains are so many issues with them.

Did you try it with setTrainDerailed?

I did, but to confirm I tried again and it worked, so maybe there is a chance trains can be added to map editor.
