Control Value

Each Control Value, when expanded, shows the Control Value and one or more Interface Elements attached to it.

 Control Name  This is the link to the Input Mapper Parameter field. For a control to be functional it needs to match exactly, including case, the Parameter (See Parameter in Input Mapper Blueprint) field in an Input Mapper Blueprint.
 Default Value  This is the value that the control will be set to when the vehicle is loaded into the game. In the example image shown above, for the Damper controls on the Black 5 locomotive, 0 is off and 1 is on, the Default Value is 1, so the Dampers are ‘On’ when the loco is loaded into the game. It is possible to use intermediate values, for example, if 0.5 was specified here, the Dampers would be 50% open when the loco is loaded.
 Minimum Value  The control is allocated a numeric range over which the control value will change. This is the lowest value, the ‘off’ position. Numeric values other than 0 or 1 can be specified here.
 Maximum Value  The control is allocated a numeric range over which the control value will change. This is the highest value, the ‘on’ position. Numeric values other than 0 or 1 can be specified here.
 Brief Description  This field is used to input a short description of the control. This will then appear as the mouse of text used in the game.
 Detailed Description  This field is used to input a longer description of the control. This is not used directly in the game but can aid understanding of the function when looking at this blueprint.
 Apply to Consist  This setting determines if the Control Value can be passed down the train, from one vehicle to another as in the case of a Multiple Unit or Top and Tail arranged train.
