Amtrak Acela Express + HHP-8 Brake Mod

Postby Fan Railer » Tue Dec 01, 2015 9:46 pm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzO_uLJB2EA
This is the update to both the HHP-8 and Acela physics mods for TS2016 (12/1/15). Main change is that the Signature JohnS brake fix has been applied to both trains / locomotives. Players may now select any position between minimum reduction and suppression on the auto brake handle among other minor changes. For more information, be sure to read the readme text files that are provided with each mod. Enjoy =)

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 =)

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 =)

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)

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 =)
