I am experimenting with a tractor/trailer combination on a facility. I would like to have a tractor tow a trailer, as a loc does with railcars. The SDKs mention nodes on the models named 'tow' and 'hitch' which I can add. I also remember seeing a flak gun being towed by a truck in MAW. I would like to do something similar but I need to know how this is done:
a) Can I set up this tractor to tow a trailer on a facility file so that they follow a spline (as moving vehicles do on airfields etc.)? If yes, how do I set this up in the facility .xml?
Trains seem to added through spawns. A recent thread (taxiing aircraft) mentions spawns for facilities.
b) If the above does not work, can the tractor/trailer combo be added through a spawn? How does one make it follow the spline on the facility in a spawn file?
