TS2016 DTG New Haven FL9 Physics & Sound Mod Pack

This is the DTG New Haven FL9 Physics & Sound Mod Pack V2.0


In order to utilize this freeware physics & sound upgrade, you must have purchased ALL THREE of the following for this pack to be fully functional:


  1. 1. New Haven FL9 Loco Add-On Loco Add-On available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258...

  2. Metro-North P32 AC-DM 'Genesis' Loco Add-On available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258...

  3. Pacific Surfliner® LA - San Diego Route available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/222...

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.


The purpose of this pack is to correct physics errors in the DTG FL9 locomotive, provide FL9AC operating physics, swap in the horn sounds from the P32AC-DM, add in a Hancock whistle option, and replace the default Shoreliner horn and bell sounds.



General Parameter Change Log (Physics):

  1. Adjust Tractive Effort down to real world values. Default TE ratings were recycled from the GE Genesis P42DC DLC.

  2. Adjust power ratings.

  3. Fix locomotive weight.

  4. Set fuel capacity to 1200 or 1500 gallons in cab car.

  5. Fixed air brake application and release rates.

  6. Adjusted brake pressures.

  7. Created separate physics set for FL9AC locomotive.

  8. Locomotive with engineer does not supply HEP; locomotive with no engineer (NC locomotives) supply HEP.

  9. Corrected amount of power notches in cab car.


General Parameter Change Log (Sounds):

  1. Raised volume of Prime Mover and Bell sounds.

  2. Swapped out recycled horn sound from F7 with K5LA from P32AC-DM or Custom Hancock Air Chime.

  3. Fixed door sounds on Shoreliner Coaches.

  4. Replaced Surfliner horn and bell on Shoreliner Cab Car with proper RS2M and Shoreliner Bell.

  5. Added Amfleet brake release sound to Shoreliner Coaches.

  6. Subbed in EMD 710 sounds from Pacific Surfliner F59PHI into the FL9AC physics pack.
