Help:TRS19 Driver UI
TRS19 introduces a new Driver UI (User Interface). Many of the functions will be familiar to Trainz users, although there are several new systems introduced.
General Driver UI Buttons
At the bottom right corner of the Driver UI are a set of buttons that will appear in your Driver sessions.
Driver UI Buttons Panel
The Buttons Panel provides a selection of buttons for driving your train. Different buttons will be available to use depending on the train you are driving; these buttons are available in all UI modes.
See Driver UI Buttons Panel for further information.
Driver UI Mode
Driver UI Underlay Toggle
The Driver UI Underlay Toggle will turn a shaded underlay for the new Driver UI on or off. This may help provide some extra contrast to the UI in some situations.
Note: This has been moved to Display Menu > Interface Underlay
The new Track Profile feature provides a brand new way to view the track ahead of you, showing you the grades ahead along with a variety of track features.
The features shown on the track profile can be customised by right-clicking on the track, and then selecting the features you would like to see.
You can also zoom in and out to show more, or less, of the track depending on the speed you're travelling at or the density of trackside objects ahead of you.
See the Track Profile page for further information on using the Track Profile portion of the Driver UI.
The Simple Controls HUD allows you to drive your train in Simple Controls mode (formerly DCC Mode).
See the Simple Controls page for further information.
The Realistic Controls HUD allows you to drive your train in Realistic Controls mode (formerly CAB Mode).
There are two different versions of the Realistic Controls HUD, one for Steam locomotives and the other for Diesel and Electric locomotives.
