Train Simulator 2016 Pics/Vids/Mods Thread

Recommended Posts



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 =)

Enjoy this mod development tutorial:


This is the DTG Feather River Canyon Locomotive Physics Modification pack version 1.0

Welcome aboard the UP 844 Feather River Canyon excursion. We will be taking a consist of 24 cars up the 1% grade from Oroville to Keddie Wye and back. Settle back and enjoy the trip =)
Table of contents:
0:00 - 30:20 - Assembling the consist in Oroville Yard and proceeding to Oroville Depot to pick up passengers.
32:08 - 3:44:12 - Departing Oroville, 844 powers up the 1.0% ruling grade towards Keddie. Along the way we experience an issue with the water pump from the auxiliary tenders, necessitating a slower than normal speed and a short stop at Paxton to trouble shoot.
3:44:12 - 3:56:53 - After correcting the issue at Paxton, we continue the final few miles to Keddie.
4:00:20 - 4:13:44 - Following a brief breather stop at Keddie, we reverse the train over the wye in preparation for the return trip.
4:14:50 - 6:50:40 - The return trip downgrade to Oroville.
6:50:40 - 7:10:51 - Bringing the train back to the yard and laying up the locomotive.

READ FIRST (EXPAND):

Section 1: 0:00 - 17:58 (Phase V w/ HEP sounds on NEC)

Section 2: 17:58 - 27:59 (File manipulation)

Section 3: 27:59 - 48:54 (Pepsi Can w/ no-HEP sounds on San Diegan)

You tell me which sounds better =)


This is the Amtrak GE Dash 8-32BWH Sound & Physics Modification pack version 1.0


In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "Train Simulator: Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH Loco Add-On" pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/376931/


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 sound AND physics mod.


The purpose of this pack is to adjust the traction characteristics values for more realistic operation. It additionally replaces the default horn and bell sounds with files that are authentic to the locomotive.


This pack includes the option to operate with or without HEP (changes acceleration characteristics and prime mover sounds).


Credits to Callum Beatson for the no-HEP engine sounds and sound code, and to Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418) for the new K5LA horn recording.


General Parameter Change Log:

1. Weight set to 274,890 lbs.

2. Traction characteristics adjusted; see below for more details.

3. Dynamic brake values enhanced.

4. Blend air-dynamic brake delay increased to 10 seconds (originally set at 0).

5. Replaced horn/bell sounds.

6. Includes no-HEP sound pack.

7. Removed coupler slack on Superliner cars.


Technical specifications for the Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH:

1. GE Dash 8-32BWH (GE 7FDL-12; 3300 GHP); HEP version

a. Starting tractive effort of 60,260 lbs (268.054 kN)

b. Continuous TE of 38,500 lbs (171.26 kN) @ 26 mph

c. Wheel horsepower of ~2,450 hp (~1,830 kW) @ 30 mph; assuming ~200 kW HEP load

d. Maximum traction amps = 1800 (60,260 lbs)

e. Dynamic Brake effort of 37,390 lbs (166.319 kN) from 41 mph to 9 mph

f. DB resistor grid rating of 4,084 hp (3,047.76 kW)

g. Max brake amps = 900 (37,390 lbs)

h. Maximum speed of 103 mph

i. Engine RPM range = 400 - 1050

j. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 20

k. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 4 - 158

l. Fuel capacity = 1,800 gallons

m. Weight = 122.71875 imperial tons (274,890 lbs)


2. GE Dash 8-32BWH (GE 7FDL-12; 3300 GHP); no HEP version

a. Wheel horsepower of 3,000 hp (2,239 kW) @ 30 mph

b. All other characteristics unchanged


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions


1. Locate Dash8_32BWHPack01 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\Dash8_32BWHPack01)

2. Open DTG_Amtrak_Dash_8-32BWH_Sound_And_Physics_Mod_Pack.rar

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 folders from step 3.


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 =)

In preparation for the release of the NJT Multilevels, I have updated the ALP-46/ALP-46A mod pack with a new file structure that eliminates the need to manually switch between 46 and 46A sounds and physics outside of the game. You can now select both locomotives simultaneously in the quick drive consist editor. Read the readme file for more info. Enjoy =)
