I have updated the physics and sound modification packs for Amtrak's Siemens ACS-64 and EMD AEM-7DC to TS2015 standards. I am also releasing, for the first time, the Bombardier HHP-8 Physics mod pack. Included are simpler installation instructions, and minor detail updates. Also, the physics and sound mods are merged into one download for ease of access in case you need to re-install the mod after verifying steam files. Make sure you READ the readme file before doing anything with the packs, and definitely do so before you ask any questions about anything to do with the packs.

TS2015 Acela Pack Updated
« Reply #18 on: November 26, 2014, 10:11:38 pm »
Updated the Acela Pack yet again:


This is the Amtrak Acela Express Physics and Sound Upgrade pack (TS2015 version).

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak Acela Express EMU Add-On pack avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65231/

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 some physics errors in the original Acela pack and swap in the HHP-8 Hybrid K5LA horn and bell sounds.

I also added in brand new door sounds and idle sounds.


Parameter Change Log:
1. Adjusted tractive effort and braking effort curves based on real world figures available online. Original figures used were much too high and lead to an unrealistically fast train set.
2. Adjusted amp ratings so that 1 amp = 1 kN of effort. Maximum traction amps = 225 amps @ 0 mph.
3. Adjusted individual car weights based on real world figures available online.
4. Added the ammeter feature on the HUD, and tweaked the cab TE display to read a maximum of 50,000 lbf of starting tractive effort.
5. Top speed has been unlocked from 165 mph to 205 mph. Based on available power from power cars, balancing speed is 186 mph for 7 car set.

For more specifics on the specific values that were changed, proceed here: http://railworksamerica.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=10774

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the Acela asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\AcelaPack01"
2. Then open the "Railworks_Acela_Express_Physics_&_Sound_Mod.rar" file.
3. Drag the folders 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 =)

TS2015: M8 Physics Mod Updated for DTG Patch
« Reply #19 on: December 02, 2014, 08:04:35 am »


I have yet again updated the M8 physics mod pack to ensure compatibility with the patch that was released by DTG for the M8 on December 2, 2014. The patch address several issues, but fails to correct the physics values, horn, door, and traction sounds. One important issue that WAS addressed was the dynamic brake behavior in relation to the master controller position. Dynamics will now apply as soon as a minimum reduction application is made. This mod pack has been updated to accommodate that fix.

This is the Metro-North Kawasaki M8 Physics Upgrade Pack, 2015 Edition (12/2/14 M8 Patch Compatible).

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Metro-North Kawasaki M8 EMU Add-On available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258647/

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. The Leslie RS2M + door sound pack will be released separately from this pack.

The purpose of this pack is to improve accuracy of the tractive and braking effort curves, reflect the TE limit in the on-screen TE monitor, and tweak car weights slightly.

Parameter Change Log:
1. Modified Tractive Effort and Dynamic Brake curves based on 806 kW power rating per car and 11,582.7306 lbf (51.52255 kN) starting effort and 16,216.4234 lfb (72.134 kN) braking effort.
1a. Starting acceleration is now calibrated to the specified 2.0 mph/s from 0 mph to 35 mph.
1b. Maximum braking rate is now 3.0 mph/s attainable from ~25 mph to 0 mph.
2. Maximum sustainable speed limited to 100 mph via changes to TE curve file.
3. Ampere parameters adjusted so that cab TE monitor display accurate to the actual tractive effort being applied to the rail.
4. Weights modified to match those in manual; A car = 65.7 metric tons, B car = 65.22 metric tons
5. Updated brake pressure specs to be compatible with the M8 patch that was released on 12/2/14.


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Proceed to open folders until your directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\M8Pack01\".
3. Then open the "Railworks_MNR_Kawasaki_M8_Physics_Mod.rar" file.
4. Highlight all folders in the .rar file and drag them into the file directory from step 1.
5. Click "OK" when if asks you to Confirm File Copy.
6. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to confirm.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

TS2015: DTG Miami AMTK P42DC Comprehensive Mod Pack Release (Sounds & Physics)
« Reply #26 on: December 18, 2014, 11:16:29 pm »
Well, that was a relatively quick turnaround for a release :P


This is the DTG Miami P42DC Physics & Sound Upgrade and HEP Version Addition pack.

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased BOTH of the following for this pack to be fully functional:
1. Miami - West Palm Beach Route Add-On available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/222627/
2. Metro-North P32 AC-DM 'Genesis' Loco Add-On available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258655/

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 BOTH A PHYSICS AND SOUND UPGRADE PACK. Sound mods were made to accommodate the physics mods; more details below.

The purpose of this pack is to correct some physics errors in the DTG Miami P42DC locomotive, swap in the horn and bell sounds from the P32AC-DM, and add proper door sounds for the passenger cars.

General parameter Change Log:
1. Adjust Tractive Effort down to real world values. Default TE ratings are too high.
2. Adjust Braking Effort curve to simulate realism.
3. Adjust amp limits so that the in cab ammeter displays properly.
4. Increased fuel capacity from 1800 gallons to 2200 gallons.
5. Increased air brake application and release rates. Original rates are painfully and unrealistically slow.
6. Adjusted values in the AmtrakP42DCEngine.proxyxml file to accommodate the change in the RPM range for the non-HEP locomotive and the HEP locomotive.
6a. Prime mover sounds should now play all the way up to 1050 rpm, and idle pitch has been moved up from 315 rpm to 468 rpm.

This pack also converts the NC locomotives (the locomotives that do not have crew members in the cabs) into HEP running versions.
The parameter changes for those locomotives are the same as the ones for the non-HEP versions except for the following:
1. Change RPM range to 900 - 901 and adjusted fuel consumption rates based on information here: http://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?4,1871287.
2. TE Ratings for the HEP versions are lowered realistically, since power is reduced by HEP draw. Specific values used are stated below.

Technical specifications for both non-HEP version and HEP version:

1. GE P42DC (GE 7FDL-16; 4250 THP; no HEP)
 a. Starting tractive effort of 63,000 lbs (280.25 kN) up to 23.087 mph

Appreciate the release! Everything sounds great judging from the videos, although the Amfleet noises seem a bit too loud! By the way, would you recommend the Miami route? I'm tempted to pick it up, but the engine sounds for the P42 sound atrocious, which is a major factor of me not impulse buying it. Don't know if this has been answered but does this also feature the ENTIRE Tri-Rail network? It only mentions the Amtrak stops, so that's a bit unclear.

By the way, do you ever plan on updating the M8 motor and track noises? That way make driving the NEC an even more immersive experience now that DTG has finally fixed the FPS issue on them.

Once again thanks for your awesome releases!

Yes, it is still worth buying. The route spans the ENTIRE tri-rail system, and tri-rail DLC is coming sometime in 2015. The P42 sounds are the old G-TRAX sounds, but I have plans to sub in the P32AC-DM sounds sometime in the future; in fact, I already started by subbing in the horn sounds released in the pack above and below.



And yes, I am going to update the M8 motor sounds. I don't know about the track sounds yet though.
