I have a more deep question. How I can change the signal type?

What type do you mean? Country or setup?

Both. As you can see https://i.hizliresim.com/6mRZ1k.png when I activate semaphore, I only see this type of signal.

That's the default signal model. Traffic lights are directly assigned to countries, so if the prefab nodes are assigned to i.e. Germany, it will get German signals, if available. If not, it will keep on using the default signals. The signal models are defined in "/def/world/semaphore_model.sii". The item name is structured in such a way that you have the item type first, then the signal type and then the country code it is used for. Example, this is the definition for Slovenia (slo):

Code: Select all

tr_semaphore_model : tr_sem_mdl.city.slo {

	name: "city-slo"
	
	model_desc: "/model/traffic_light/slovenia/city_slo.pmd"
	model_coll: "/model/traffic_light/slovenia/city_slo.pmc"

	dynamic: false
}

tr_semaphore_model : tr_sem_mdl.single.slo {

	name: "single-slo"
	
	model_desc: "/model/traffic_light/slovenia/single_slo.pmd"
	model_coll: "/model/traffic_light/slovenia/single_slo.pmc"

	dynamic: false
}
So you need to model those, but this can be a bit tricky if you don't know how the traffic light lamp overlays work. They use some very specific UV system, so stick to that.

If you want to change the setup itself, you have to change the prefab, which is a whole lot more complicated and I'm not going to explain it, since it requires you to know how to model in ZModeler first...

Thanks Mandelsoft and yes this is a bit hardcore to me. I will just go back mapping.

Thank you anyway :)

More than 2 years ago. This topic saved me while I was working on my own South Bulgaria-Turkey project. Now, 2 years later it again saved me on a completely different project. Thank you Mandelsoft and Promods :) and thank you SCS for not changing its file structure :P

You cannot add semaphores to the roads. You can only add them to the prefabs.
