Title: Official Railworks: Train Simulator 2016 Videos, Screenshots, & Mods Thread
Post by: Fan Railer on September 20, 2015, 01:52:33 am

Tired of bouncing around like a loose cannon on the original NEC route for Railworks Train Simulator 2016? Then you are in luck. I have managed to isolate the rail stability code (special thanks to Brandon Phelan) and have lowered the instability value to such that the ride over the rails is now smooth at high speeds. This has been done in preparation for the long awaited and highly anticipated release of New Jersey Transit equipment DLC next month (October 2015). Read on for more details:

This is the Train Simulator 2016 Northeast Corridor (New York - Philadelphia) Track Stability Mod

In order to utilize this freeware route upgrade, you must have purchased the Northeast Corridor Add-On pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65232/

This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.

The purpose of this pack is to correct (lower) the amount of track uneveness (which results in a VERY bouncy ride at high speeds). Default line uneveness was set at 50. It has now been lowered to 8.


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the Northeast Corridor asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NorthEastCorridor"
2. Then open the "Railworks_Northeast_Corridor_Track_Stability_Mod.rar" file.
3. Drag the file folder from the .rar file and into the directory you opened in step one..
4. Overwrite if asked.
5. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to check.


Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

This is the Metrolink EMD F59PH & Companion Bombardier BiLevel Cab Car Physics Modification pack Version 3.0.

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "Los Angeles Commuter Rail F59PH" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/277747/

This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.

THIS IS NOT A SOUND UPGRADE PACK. Physics adjustments made around the existing sounds.

The purpose of this pack is to adjust the locomotive weight, fuel capacity, motor amperage limits, and braking effort values for more realistic operation.

Version 3.0 includes the signature JohnS brake fix.

NOTE: This physics mod does not completely integrate with the new Metro reskin pack from The Locomotive Shop (http://thelocoshop.blogspot.com/p/downloads.html) as far as I'm aware. I do know that the physics simulation values are slaved to the default F59PH values, so if you change them normally, the changes should carry over into the reskinned versions of the F59PH. The brake fix does NOT carry over into the reskins.

Parameter Change Log:
1. Lowered fuel tank capacity from 4,800 gallons to 1,500 gallons.
2. Increased locomotive weight to 271,165.8 lbs (123 metric tons) for better adhesion characteristics.
3. Maximum tractive amps is 1785; maximum braking amps is 700.
4. Adjusted tractive effort curve with 2850 wheel hp in mind; independent of HEP load.
5. Adjusted dynamic brake effort rating and curve for more realistic operation.
6. Lowered prime mover max RPM to 900 to fix engine sound issue when reving over 900 RPM.
7. Raised weights of bilevel cars from 57 metric tons to 70 metric tons to simulate passenger load.
8. Adjusted full service brake rate to ~2.0 mph/s

This pack also includes the option to swap in physics of different locomotives (some fictional) into the F59PH body.
Additional locomotive physics included:
1. MPI MP36PH-3C
   a. Starting tractive effort of 72,500 lbs (322.5 kN) up to 16.65 mph
   b. Dynamic Brake effort of 32,742 lbs (145.64 kN) @ 55 mph

No, the NJT content has not been released yet, but I couldn't wait to start on the sound mod packs for the ALP-45DP and the recently announced ALP-46 locomotives, since DTG is notoriously infamous for getting sounds completely wrong (look no further than the M8 DLC for proof). I was able to use existing Amtrak equipment and the sound code that is found in the M8/M7 traction sound mods to create drop in sounds and code for when the content is released. Since I had to test the NJT sounds on non-NJT equipment, I elected to not show the equipment (since it would be weird hearing NJT sounds coming from Amtrak equipment or Metro-North equipment, right?) and instead have you view two still-shots of NJT equipment that I took while out rail fanning this summer.

Sound work includes the transformer idle sound (still needs slight work, going to try to get new recordings when I get a chance), bell sound (specific to both locomotives), NJT K5LA (recorded off of a dual mode; being used for both the 45DP and 46 until I can get a better static recording for the 46), and AC Traction Motor sounds specific to the ALP-45DP (IGBT Inverters), and ALP-46 (GTO Inverters).

Diesel sounds are not my forte, so if the ALP-45DP diesel sounds end up needing to be replaced (won't find out until the content is released on steam), that will probably fall to someone else to do.

I will also be creating an ALP-46A traction sound set for use in the ALP-46 in a few days, so be on the look out for that preview video (once again, audio only for now).

Enjoy, and stay tuned for a LOT of action once this content drops on Steam =)

Post by: Fan Railer on October 07, 2015, 08:24:27 pm
Please note that the initial release versions on steam for both the NJCL and F40PH-2CAT are buggy and inaccurate. If you do purchase it now, please keep in mind that post-release DLC patches are probably in order in the next few weeks or so. If you choose to wait to purchase until the bug fixes have been applied, I won't judge you lol. I will post a separate mod-release video later this week. Still ironing out some last minute issues myself.

NOTE: There is special scripting that is included with the original locomotive that automatically reduces power from the electric mode to diesel mode once you make the mode change. You should notice this reduction of power by inspecting the ammeter while you operate. Kudos to DTG for figuring that out.

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NorthJerseyCoast"
2. Open the "DTG_NJT_NJCL_ALP-45DP_And_Comet_Physics_And_Sound_Mod.rar" file

User's Manual:

Physics Swap; upon initial download, the pack defaults to ALP-46 road numbers, physics, and motor sounds. To switch between 46 and 46A #s, physics, and motor sounds, follow the steps listed below:
1. Locate and open the following three directories:
   a. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\RailVehicles\Electric\Alp46\Default"
   b. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\RailVehicles\Electric\Alp46\Simulation"
   c. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\Audio\RailVehicles\Electric\ALP46\Engine\TractionMotors"
2. Within each of those three directories, you will see two folders; "ALP-46" and "ALP-46A"
3. Once you choose which locomotive you want to emulate, open the respective type folder in all three directories from step 1.
4. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1a.
5. Proceed back to directory 1a and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
6. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1b.
7. Proceed back to directory 1b and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
8. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1c.
9. Proceed back to directory 1c and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
10. If the previous 9 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2016 to check.


Bell Swap; upon initial download, the pack defaults to the steel bell. To switch between bells, follow the steps listed below:
1. Locate and open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\Audio\RailVehicles\Electric\ALP46\Exterior\Horn&Bell"
2. Within that directory that you just opened, you will see two folders; "Steel Bell" and "E-bell"
3. Open the folder for the corresponding bell you wish to use and copy (CTRL + C) all contents within.
4. Proceed back to the directory from step 1 and paste (CTRL + V) the contents you copied into said directory; overwrite if/when asked.
5. Bell swap should be complete; run TS2016 to check.

NOTE: For added realism, remember that the ALP-46 can use both the e-bell and steel bell, but the ALP-46A only comes equipped with the e-bell, so if running with 46A physics, #s, and motor sounds, make sure you've selected the e-bell as well.

This is the Chicago & Southwest Productions Metra EMD F40PH-3 Locomotive & Nippon Sharyo Gallery Cab Car Comprehensive Modification pack version 2.0

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "The Racetrack: Aurora - Chicago Route Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258648/

This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the physics and sound enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.

This is BOTH sound mod and physics mod pack.

The purpose of this pack is to adjust the physics performance of the EMD F40PH-3 locomotive and the associated Gallery Cab Car.

This pack also replaces the mediocre stock bell sounds with authentic bell sounds (exterior and interior versions) for both the cab car and the locomotive.

This pack also replaces the door sounds (audible only while in the cab car at the moment). Sounds sourced to Tyler Johnston.

Sound NOTE: The interior bell sound on the locomotive is very soft, so if it is barely audible, that's the way it's supposed to be. Also, once again, you will only hear the door chime if you are operating from the cab car. You will NOT hear it if you are operating from the locomotive.

SIDE NOTE: To obtain Metra logo and decals for rolling stock, download this pack: http://railworksamerica.com/index.php/download-library/accessories?view=document&id=1858:metra-signage-logos&catid=24:accessories (http://www.facebook.com/groups/720469151375805/files/)

List of general changes for v2.0 release (from the v1.0 release):
1. Incorporated the JohnS brake fix. Brake pipe pressure set back to 90 PSI and brakes are now graduated release.
2. Removed HEP physics option
3. Increased traction motor load time from 5 seconds to 25 seconds
4. Packaged the sound mod into v2.0 release

NOTE: The F40PH-3 locomotive comes default with a neat HEP mode toggle ability, this only affects engine RPM; tractive power is not affected.

Technical specifications:

1. EMD F40PH-2 (EMD 645; 3200 THP; no HEP)
   a. Starting tractive effort of 65,000 lbs (289.1344 kN)
   b. Continuous tractive effort of 38,240 lbs (170.1 kN) @ 16.31 mph
   c. Dynamic Brake effort of 35,000 lbs (177.93 kN) @ 55 mph; extended range sawtooth curve between 55 mph and 36 mph. Fade to 0 lbs @ 0.5 mph (not in use)
   d. Wheel horsepower of 3,000 hp (2,239 kW) @ 30 mph
   e. Maximum speed of 103 mph
    f. Engine RPM range = 410 - 900
   g. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 20
    h. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 4 - 155
   i. Weight = 260,142.8 lbs (118 metric tons)
   j. Fuel capacity = 1500 gallons
   k. Max traction amps = 1785
   l. Max brake amps = 700 (not in use)


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions:

1. Locate BNSFChicago (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\Barnez\BNSFChicago)
2. Open TS2016_Metra_EMD_F40PH_&_Gallery_Cab_Car_Comprehensive_Mod_Pack.7z
3. Drag the file folders from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2016 to check.
5. If installation is botched or does not work, to back up to original files, delete the folder from step 3.

NOTE: When trying to run a career scenario after installing any physics mod, you will have to bypass the "track.bin" error message that pops up by pressing "F2", then hitting save. The scenario will then be playable.

Title: TS2016: Amtrak GE Dash 8-32BWH Sound Mod Preview
Post by: Fan Railer on February 01, 2016, 03:58:18 pm


Here is the preview for the sound portion of the Dash 8-32BWH mod package. Sounds were tested on the P32AC-DM and are sourced to Callum Beatson for the no-HEP engine sounds and sound code, and to Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418) for the new K5LA horn recording. I also take no credit for the last two image thumbnails; credits go to the respective photographers behind those photos.

I have not yet decided whether I will be porting these sounds over to the P32AC-DM as a mod update or the P42DC versions. If I do, I will announce it.

Stay tuned for the sound and physics mod release announcement. Enjoy =)

User's Manual:
Upon installation, the pack defaults to using the HEP physics and sounds. In order to switch physics/sounds, follow the steps below:

1. Open the following directories:
   a. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Dash8_32BWHPack01\RailVehicles\Simulation"
   b. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Dash8_32BWHPack01\Audio\RailVehicles\Diesel\Dash8_32BWH\Engine"
2. In each of those directories, you will see two folders (one for each set of locomotive physics/sounds):
   a. "HEP"
   b. "No HEP"
3. Once you choose which set of physics/sounds to use, open the respective type folder in both directories from step 1.
4. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1a.
5. Proceed back to directory 1a and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite (replace) when prompted.
6. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1b.
7. Proceed back to directory 1b and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite (replace) when prompted.
8. If the previous 7 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2016 to check.

For adventurous players/developers, there are actually two sets of no-HEP notch 8 engine sounds included. If you can figure out how to swap between those two subsets, then have fun and decide for yourself which sounds better.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)
