Default Set color of item on transporter


I am sending transporters with task sequences through my model and want to change the color of the item that is currently loaded, e.g. when the transporter travels over a certain network node. How to reference this correctly?

Thanks a lot, Kat

Vadim Fooks will become famous soon enough

Here is a model that changes the color of the transported item as a part of the task sequence.

Alternatively you can use network node's OnArrival trigger to get the traveler and the item as first(traveler).

treenode traveler = parnode(1);
treenode current = ownerobject(c);
int toedge = parval(2); //the number of the edge that the traveler is going to next
int fromedge = parval(3); // the number of the edge the traveler came from

treenode item = first(traveler);
