Hello to all,

I am Nick and i am situated in Athens, Greece BigGrin

This is my project


I have created several CS3+ events and I would like to run these events at a specific time of the day, for instance:

I would like to run an event that switches on some of the lights at 06:00 in the morning (event's duration is +/- 1 hour)

I would like to run an event that plays sounds from my central station at 06:10 in the morning (event's duration is +/- 3 minutes)

I would like to run an event that starts the first loco at low speed, then medium speed, at 06:13 in the morning (event's duration is +/- 1 hour)

I would like to run another event that starts the second loco at low speed, then medium speed, at 06:14 in the morning (event's duration is +/- 1 hour)

Additionally I have recorded events for noon, afternoon and night, so my CS3+ runs at a specific time of the day.

Note: All events have been created, and tested, no risk whatsoever for crashes.

Hope this is easy

Thanks

Nick

Hi Nick

Welcome to this great forum of Märklin friends and train friends.

I don't believe this possibility is offered by the CS3 with the present s/w version (I may be wrong though).
These are the system conditions you may add to an event

With Rocrail, this possibility exists as well as real time (your computer time), accelerated time, (set time with a speed of 2,...,up to 100), relative time, hourly (repeats itself after one hour. Weather and Night / day can also be defined.
Cheers
Jean

I agree with Jean. I can't recall any method of setting the real time or date in the CS3, and there does not seem to be a NTP (Network Time Protocol) setting either. Without this capability it would be impossible for the CS3 to know what time it was to run the events properly.

As Jean has noted the only way to do this is to use a PC/MAC with suitable model railway software like Rocrail or WinDigiPet.

Hello Nick!
This is not possible with CS3 because it has not a clock.
You can do it with a CS2, it has a clock.

Hello Sir,

Thank you for the info about CS2!

To be honest I am stuck with this. I downloaded Rocrail, but it seems I am not smart enough to connect it with the CS3, same goes with iTrain. I've spent enough time with negative results with both.

Once I asked Märklin why does not include the clock as CS2 in CS3.
they told me that in a future....

This future is since 2017...
