Quotetractive effort is generally higher than tractive force by the amount of rolling resistance present, and both terms are higher than the amount of drawbar pull by the total resistance present (including air resistance and grade).

Quote from: RanRAnI recently read the code on acceleration, but the power used for acceleration is multiplied by gear. That is, the force used for acceleration is the value displayed at the top of the convoy detail dialog.
Quote from: jamespetts on January 06, 2020, 11:28:01 AMChanging the power will also affect acceleration to an extent, especially at extreme settings.
Quote from: Ranran on January 06, 2020, 12:39:43 PMIf power is changed by gear but tractive effort is not changed, then these balances will break and the rated speed should change.That is, the characteristics of the vehicle may change. This can be inconsistent with the nominal specs of real-world vehicles.However, no such behavior is currently seen.
