Cars Color

You may now specify the color for the car display by adding a carLengthColor array for each preset, for example:

"carLengthColor": [null, "00FFFF", "FF00FF"]

This means:

  • No color change for the 1st car
  • Use color #00FFFF if the train is 2-car long
  • Use color #FF00FF if the train is 3-car long
  • No color change for other car length.

PIDS Variable

A variable is like a placeholder, you can put a text formatted in a specific way, and that text will be replaced with something else (e.g. a dynamic value).
