  • Four performance modes: beautiful, pretty, balanced, and efficient
  • Passenger mode setting, for when you only want trails on trains with a player in them
  • Optimized for minimal UPS impact, however please be mindful that using this mod on maps with tons of active trains creating trails may have a noticeable impact on game performance

Companion mod to:

                                 
  Player Trails             Rainbow Trains         Rainbow Character       Rainbow Vehicles

Consider also: trainsaver, Automatic Train Painter, and Vibrant Trains


A note on performance:
While a lot of time was spent optimizing the script impact this mod has, it is still asking the game engine to do quite a lot, especially on maps with lots of trains creating trails. If you encounter any performance issues please make a post on the discussion page or message me on discord (and include a save file too if possible!) The mod is a work in progress and any feedback is greatly appreciated :)
