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 adjust the physics performance of the PCC Streetcar; namely ungovern it so it accelerates and decelerates to spec.

List of changes:
1. Modified tractive effort curve.
2. Modified power ratings @ alternator and @ wheel.
3. Raised top speed to 50 mph.
4. Lowered weight to 42,560 lbs.
5. Raised brake rate slightly.
6. Adjust motor sound code to reflect speed upgrade from 25 mph to 50 mph.

Technical specifications:
1. PCC Streetcar
   a. Starting tractive effort of 9,117 lbs (40.5 kN) to 9 mph
   b. Starting acceleration of 4.75 mph/s (7.64 km/h/s)
   c. Wheel horsepower of 220 hp (164 kW) @ 9 mph
   d. Maximum speed of 55 mph
   e. Weight = 42,560 lbs (19 imperial tons)
   f. Max traction amps = 100

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Locate RScott (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RScott\Addon\RailVehicles)
2. Open TS2017 PCC Streetcar Physics Mod.rar
3. Drag the file folders from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1.

NYCTA Projects / Re: (WIP) Official Update Thread for the R44

Courtesy of Mudwrestle, we now have access to the IRT fleet encompassing contracts R12 to R36WF. I have taken the liberty, with his permission, to sort through the downloads, standardize the trains with proper performance physics, add a few minor sounds, standardize the cabs, and generate consists. Here is the result; a ~2 gigabyte package that is ready for immediate player consumption upon installation, no further work necessary. Enjoy: http://www.mediafire.com/file/db87d9et33gde9b/NYCT+A+Division+SMEE+Mega+Pack+%28R12-R36WF%29.7z

Transit / Re: Bombardier R179 Test Train Thread
« on: November 01, 2016, 03:49:04 pm »

READ FIRST:
On my second try today, 11/1/16, I was able to grab the remaining clips I wished to get of the R179 track testing in the Rockaways. Here is the full compilation of video of the test train I have from both dates, 10/28 and 11/1.

First, we have the shots of the train moving, which provide good sample sound for the propulsion. Basically, the pitch changes follow the same profile as the R160B Siemens sets, but the actual sound itself is of a different type.

Next we have the set walkdown @ Broad Channel. And interesting thing to note is that one truck in the set, the number 2 end truck of 3010, is a trailer truck (unpowered). All other trucks are motorized. Whether this is purely an instrumental testing truck, or if this feature will be part of the order remains to be seen. LoL at the employee joking about dropping the window and telling buffs to stop filming =P

And finally, we have clips of the test train actually on the test track, shot from other A trains passing the test track area. Enjoy the action, and stay tuned for clips from system-wide clearance testing which is to happen soon, hopefully =)

This is the DTG ScotRail BR Class 68 Locomotive ABB AC Traction Motor Sound Volume Enhancement Pack.

In order to utilize this freeware sound upgrade, you must have purchased the "Train Simulator: ScotRail Class 68 Loco Add-on" available here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/376930/

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

THIS IS NOT A PHYSICS PACK; volume enhancement made around existing physics.

The purpose of this pack is to raise the volume of the traction motor sounds on the Class 68, which is far too low by default.


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Class68Pack01"
2. Open the "DTG_Class_68_Traction_Motor_Volume_Enhancement_Pack.rar" file
3. Drag the folder from the .rar file into the directory from step 1.
4. Sound mod installation is complete.
5. Run TS2016 to confirm.

Thank you for downloading and installing. Please contact me if there is a problem with the functionality of this mod pack.
Enjoy =)

Train Simulator 2016 / TS2016: ACS-64 Mod Update (Horn Quill Added)
« on: July 10, 2016, 10:30:35 am »



This is the Siemens ACS-64 Traction Physics & Sound Upgrade Pack Update for TS2016 (Horn Quill & Motor Update; 6/30/16).

In order to utilize this freeware sound & physics upgrade, you must have purchased the NEC: New York - New Haven Route Add-On avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258643/

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

The purpose of this pack is to allow the player to run the ACS-64 in either Boost Mode (6400 kW) or Continuous Mode (5000 kW). It also corrects the E-bell sound so that there is doppler effect.

2016 one-year anniversary update: Replaced default horn with new, higher quality horn recording.

2016 mid-year update: K5LA horn quill added. Details below. Motor sound pitch timing has also been updated; this is preliminary and will be improved upon in the future.

Parameter Change Log (most recent update):
1. Quillable Horn added courtesy of Matt Gorres (OpenRailer90 on RWA). Function is the same as the Pacific Surfliner F59PHI; hit the N key for the quill.
2. Low speed motor sound adjusted. High speed sound adjustment to come at a later date.
3. Numbering range adjusted (600-641, 643-665, 667-670).

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions; REMEMBER TO ALWAYS CREATE BACKUP FILES TO REVERT TO INCASE THE INSTALLATION DOES NOT WORK AS PLANNED!

1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NewYorkNewHaven"
2. Then open the "Railworks_ACS-64_Traction_Physics_&_Sound_Mod_Update.rar" file.
2a. Before proceeding to step 3, make sure your "RSC" folder is NOT set to "read only". You can change the folder settings using the properties function. IF the "RSC" folder is read only, the files will not overwrite existing files when you attempt step 3.
3. Drag all three file folders ("RailVehicles", "Audio", & "InputMappers") from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1. Overwrite if asked.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2016 to check.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

« on: July 02, 2016, 12:26:22 am »



Update made to the WMATA 7000 series sounds: New low speed prototypical motor sound, tweaked motor sound volumes, added new prototypical air brake sounds, and added in a temporary static cab as a placeholder until we can find a cab developer who has the time to undertake the job.

Preliminary motor sound work for the WMATA 7k cars for OpenBVE. Exterior work and modeling credited to Miles and Sim Central. Stay tuned for more progress in the future, which includes the addition of a cab, and lowering of graphics demand, which should lead to increase in FPS. Enjoy =)
