This is the GE PRR GG1 Tractive Effort Upgrade pack.

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the PRR GG1 Loco Add-On avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65242/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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 the blaring tractive effort curve errors in the GG1 locomotive as it was originally released.
Specifics about the TE values can be found in the first few posts of this thread: http://railworksamerica.com/forum/viewt ... 31&t=10728" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I am not responsible for any damage that installing this pack may cause your machine. ALWAYS be sure to back up original files incase you need to revert back to them.

Parameter Change Log:
1. Created passenger-geared version's TE curve.
2. Created freight-geared version's TE curve.
3. Lowered maximum traction amps to 2800.

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the GG1 asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\GG1Pack01\RailVehicles\Electric\GG1\Simulation"
2. Then open the "Railworks_GG1_Tractive_Effort_Mod.rar" file.
3. Drag both file folders named "Passenger" and "Freight" from the .rar file and into the directory you opened in step one.
4. The premise of this pack is that you can only run one version of the GG1 at one time.
5. Before playing TS2014, choose the version you want to run (passenger or freight), then proceed to copy the contents in the respective folder into the directory from step one. DO NOT DELETE THE FOLDER afterwords.
6. The installation should be complete. Run TS2014 to check.
7. If you wish to change the version you are running at any time, exit out of TS2014, and repeat step 5.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

This is the Amtrak EMD F40PH Physics Upgrade and HEP Version Addition pack.

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak F40PH ‘California Zephyr’ Loco Add-On pack avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/208296/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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. Physics adjustments made around the existing sounds.

The purpose of this pack is to correct some physics errors in the original Amtrak EMD F40PH pack.

ALWAYS MAKE SURE you back up original files in case you need to revert back to them.

Parameter Change Log (so far):
1. Change RPM range to 260 - 893, and adjusted fuel consumption (3.6 gph - 174 gph).
2. Adjust Tractive Effort to EMD F59PHI values. Original Tractive Effort values are all messed up
3. Adjust Braking Effort curve to simulate realism.
4. Adjust amp limits so that the in cab ammeter displays properly.

This pack also converts the No-Conductor 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 893 - 894, and adjusted fuel consumption (40 gph - 174 gph).

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the F40PH asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\F40PHPack01\RailVehicles\Diesel\F40PH"
2. Then open the "Railworks_F40PH_HEP_Addition_and_Physics_Mod.rar" file.
3. Drag both file folders named "Simulation" and "AmtrakPhaseIII" from the .rar file and into the directory you opened in step one.
4. Overwrite if asked.
5. The installation should be complete. Run TS2014 to check.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ArT8lRXyr8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak Acela Express EMU Add-On pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65231/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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. Physics adjustments made around the existing sounds

The purpose of this pack is to correct some physics errors in the original Acela pack.

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 individual car weights based on real world figures available online.
3. 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.

For more specifics on the specific values that were changed, proceed here: http://railworksamerica.com/forum/viewt ... 31&t=10774" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the Acela asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\AcelaPack01\RailVehicles\Electric\Acela\Default"
2. Then open the "Railworks_Acela_Express_Physics_Mod.rar" file.
3. Drag all five 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 TS2014 to check.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)

FR: I looked at the GG1 simulator video - and it really impressed me remembering the G's as I do...

I want to add these ideas to make this accurate remembering the restored Amtrak PRR GG1 4935 in Brunswick Green and NJT's 4877 in Tuscan Red...

First-as noted change the GG1 hauling the Amfleet cars number to 4935 -and- the Amfleet color scheme should be their as-delivered Phase Two (?)
which was to be exact blue and red coloring on white Scotchlite reflectorization...along with a "Power Car" - a 48 or 51 foot former baggage car
with a center door that was equipped with a generator because the GG1 lacked HEP compatibility with the Amfleet...This car would normally be
at either end of a Amfleet train using a GG1 behind the engine or at the rear end...I believe these PC's had 690 to 699 numbers used...

This should help make this simulation historically more accurate remembering how Amtrak utilized their GG1s when the Amfleet was new...

All these "fixes" seem to indicate a rush job to get this route out for sale. How about that the signals get attached to something instead of being suspended in midair? :(

The northeast corridor has been out for sale for a while, and if your talking about the New York-New Haven route that is in development there is a rumor the ACS 64 is a good chance to be the prized horse on that route

No, I'm not talking about that route, or scenario as they're known. I'm referring to the current New York-Philadelphia scenario. And it's not just this one that has problems. Marias Pass physics is a mess, too.

In any case, thanks for the fix.

No problem. I can say that the original NEC segment is also getting a minor update, hopefully, with the release of the new segment.

This is the Railworks Pacific Surfliner Cab Car Bell Replacement & Horn Volume Adjustment pack.

In order to utilize this freeware sound upgrade, you must have purchased the Pacific Surfliner Route Addon avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/222606/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This is a freeware pack; in no way is it to be used for commercial purposes. You are free, however to further modify the sound enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose.

The purpose of this pack is to replace the original default bell sound and adjust the horn sound volume in the Surfliner Cab Car.

The bell sounds (both the interior and exterior sounds) used in this pack are recorded off of the Alstom built Comet V cab cars that run on New Jersey Transit. Both the Comet V and the Surfliner Cabs were built by Alstom around the same time period (early 2000s), so their bells are fairly similar, if not actually the same make.


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions; Remember to ALWAYS create a backup file in case you need to revert.

1. Open the "PacificSurflinerAssets.ap" pack file with .7z and extract the contents into the PacificSurfliner Asset Folder.
2. Proceed to open folders until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\PacificSurfliner\Audio\RailVehicles\Passenger\CaliCar\Cab".
3. Then open the "Railworks_Pacific_Surfliner_Cab_Car_Bell_Mod_Pack.rar" file.
4. Drag all three files from the .rar file into the directory opened in step 2.
5. Overwrite when prompted.
6. The installation should be complete. Run TS2014 to check.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)
