AEM-7AC (Realistic Sounds) Development (V1.0 Released)
« on: July 31, 2012, 12:58:47 am »
7/13/13 UPDATE:
You can download this train now here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/5xo7c1vn1xcbh2n/AEM-7AC_Train_Pack_V1.0.rar
OpenBVE HD EXCLUSIVE: Amtrak AEM-7AC Train Pack V1.0 RELEASE (Full Sound Update, 7/12/13)

Found the NEC objects pack a while ago, but I never got around to playing with the files and slapping them together until now. The locomotive is a bit funky, and doesn't quite turn properly, but you can barely notice it. I've also managed to take the Railjet Taurus sounds again and mold them to mimic the AEM-7AC sounds. Not 100% perfect, but it is pretty close. Just a few things to work on with the loop sound and the train physics, and she will basically be complete.

That's a blast!  We badly need an NEC route for this train.
One note: the original Amtrak paint for the AEM7 may better match those coaches.
I need to try running that route and train combination.  Wow!

FanRailer,
Thanks for that paint fix, much better.
Now do your magic and quickly whip up a real NY-Washington-Boston NEC route for this train,
then the world would be perfect (joking).
Good work!

Haha thanks guys =P lol if I was able to build a route, I'd b doing so. But quite frankly, I don't have the time to devote to learning how to and then building one of such proportions. Someone else expressed the intentions to build part of the NEC, but I don't expect that to be done for another decade or so lol.

OpenBVE HD EXCLUSIVE: Amtrak AEM-7AC Sound Development Update (6/14/13)
I have restarted development on the sound pack for the AEM-7AC after rediscovering the backup files, and I am pleased to say that I have made significant progress. Only a few things remain to be fixed before I daresay that the train is above 90% accurate in the sounds and physics department. The exterior is an entirely different story. The one in use now is only a place holder, and I am not at liberty to freely distribute it. If someone wants to take it upon themselves to develop a new one, that would be greatly appreciated.
Here are the main reference videos I used to update the propulsion:

AEM-7AC V1.0 RELEASE
« Reply #13 on: July 13, 2013, 06:31:18 pm »
Here it is folks: Version 1.0 of the AEM-7AC, available for public consumption. The next logical update would include a new exterior, panel, and perhaps some Amfleet stock, if someone gets around to building that.
