Haha, if you're referring to the signal at Trenton, that one is ALWAYS red when you start out of that station in quick drive for some reason (hence why I tab passed it).

 

On another note, bell has been replaced (volume fading adjusted after I recorded this video):

 

Again, same download link.

NOTE (READ FIRST): This video was SUPPOSED to have commentary, but I forgot to hit the "save settings" button on Bandicam before I initiated the recording. Bear with me. Things I mention: READ THE DLC MANUAL and README file for this mod for your own sake. The FP7 dynamic brake handle is wonky; will report to DTG. Note the difference in acceleration between FP7 consist and F9 consist. F9 brake response rates in video is default; this has been adjusted in the mod to behave more like the FP7 brake response rates. Note the Mars Light on the F9 that activates when the horn is blown. Didn't notice if this is also on the FP7. EMD FP7 test lasts up until 35:00 min in the video; EMD F9 test follows.


This is the DTG Western Pacific EMD FP7 & Rio Grande EMD F9 Physics Mod Pack V1.0

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 =)

I gotta be honest.... If my desktop wasn't being such a Windows Computer... :P I'd quickly download the quill. I watched the video from MET-TRE and was saying OH SNAP!!! I'm a hater! :P It's just a real shame that they really screwed things up with the entire NEC package. Even more so what they currently have on the Acela Sets... I watched you go from a Clear to I'll guess a Limited Clear.. On top of that there is an interlocking just west of MET. Can't think of the name off the top of my head. Then you're coming into Trenton and you get an Advance Approach and then a Medium Clear. They failed pretty bad...

This is the Metro-North P32AC-DM & Shoreliner Cab Car Comprehensive Mod Pack V2.0 for TS2016 (7/27/16)


In order to utilize this freeware sound & physics upgrade, you must have purchased the "Metro-North P32 AC-DM 'Genesis' Loco Add-On" pack 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 use the sound & physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.


THIS IS BOTH A SOUND AND PHYSICS UPGRADE PACK.


The main purpose of this pack is to make use of the proper horn and bell sound files that were somehow overlooked by DTG in the beta test process, introduce authentic Leslie RS2M horn sounds (exterior and cab versions) and authentic bell sounds (exterior and cab versions). This pack also replaces the door sounds and adds brake release sounds.


From a physics perspective, this pack introduces new weight and tractive effort values to give a more realistic operating feel.


Included is the signature JohnS brake fix. Additionally, the number of throttle notches on the Shoreliner Cab Car have been fixed.


Finally, this pack gives the user the ability to switch between GE P32AC-DM physics and MPI HSP46 physics. Follow the instructions provided below to switch between.


V2.0 update includes new GE 7FDL-12 prime mover sounds and sound coding courtesy of Matt Gorres and Gregory Grice. Also includes minor coach car sound updates from Matt.


Technical specifications:


1. GE P32AC-DM (GE 7FDL-12; 3300 GHP; no HEP)

a. Starting tractive effort of 62,000 lbs (275.8 kN) up to 14 mph

b. Continuous TE of 45,051.7 lbs (200.4 kN) @ 25 mph

c. Dynamic Brake effort of 34,500 lbs (153.423 kN) @ 35 mph to 5 mph; linear fade from max brake effort @ 5 mph to 0 lbs @ 2 mph; resistor grid rating of 3,216 hp (2,400 kW)

d. Wheel horsepower of 3,000 hp (2,239 kW) @ 25 mph; assuming 0 kW HEP load

e. Weight of 124.5 metric tons (274,472.7 lbs)

f. Max traction amps = 620 (62,000 lbs)s

g. Max braking amps = 345 (34,500 lbs)

h. Engine RPM range = 315 - 900

i. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 25

j. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 29 - 160

k. Maximum speed of 110 mph


2. MPI HSP46 (GE GEVO-12; 4700 GHP; no HEP)

a. Starting tractive effort of 65,000 lbs (289.1344 kN) up to 24.832 mph

b. Continuous TE of 20,176 lbs (89.747 kN) @ 80 mph

c. Dynamic Brake effort of 35,209 lbs (156.619 kN) @ 50 mph to 5 mph; linear fade from max brake effort @ 5 mph to 0 lbs @ 2 mph; resistor grid rating of 4,690 hp (3,500 kW)

d. Wheel horsepower of 4,300 hp (2,239 kW) @ 24.832 mph; assuming 0 kW HEP load

e. Weight of 131.543 metric tons (290,000 lbs)

f. Max traction amps = 650 (65,000 lbs)

g. Max braking amps = 352 (35,209 lbs)

h. Engine RPM range = 315 - 900

i. RPM change rate (rpm/second) = 25

j. Fuel consumption range (gph)= 35 - 210

k. Maximum speed of 110 mph


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions


1. Locate P32Pack01 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P32Pack01)

2. Open Railworks_Metro-North_P32AC-DM_and_Shoreliner_Cab_Car_Comprehensive_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 folder from step 3. Then proceed to contact me and let me know so I can fix the issue.


User Manual:

Upon installation, the pack defaults to using the GE P32AC-DM (3300 GHP) physics. In order to switch physics, follow the steps below:


1. Open the following directories:

a. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P32Pack01\RailVehicles\Diesel\P32DC\Simulation"

b. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\P32Pack01\RailVehicles\Diesel\P32DC\Engine"

2. In each of those directories, you will see three folders (one for each set of locomotive physics):

a. "P32AC-DM (3300 GHP)"

b. "HSP46 (4700 GHP)"

3. Once you choose which set of physics to use, open the respective physics 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. If the previous 7 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2016 to check.


Thank you for downloading and installing.

Enjoy =)
