TS2016 Just Trains China Railways HXD3D Physics Tweak Mod

This is the Just Trains China Railways HXD3D Physics Tweak Mod Pack V1.5

In order to utilize this freeware physics & sound upgrade, you must have purchased the "China Railways HXD3D Electric Locomotive + ChengYu Part 2 Route and Rolling Stock Pack" available here: http://www.justtrains.net/product/chi...

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 make minor physics adjustments to the HXD3D locomotive; specifics outlined below.

Version 1.5: Includes new HXD3B physics.

Version 2.0 will include HXD3B traction sounds.

General Parameter Change Log (Physics):

  1. Slight tweak of Dynamic Brake curves; added values between 64 MPH & 100 MPH.

  2. Adjusted ammeter settings to display Tractive Effort (TE) in Kilonewtons (kN).

  3. Created HXD3B physics.

Technical specifications for HXD3D:

  1. Dalian Loco Works HXD3D (7240 kW THP)

  2. Starting tractive effort of 97,000 lbs (420 kN)

  3. Continuous tractive effort of 73,000 lbs (324 kN) @ 50 mph

  4. Dynamic Brake effort of 56,000 lbs (250 kN) @ 64 mph; flat curve down to 8.7 mph, fade to 0 lbs @ 3 mph.

  5. Wheel horsepower of 9,700 hp (7,240 kW) @ 50 mph

  6. Maximum speed of 100 mph

  7. Weight = 282,240 lbs (126 imperial tons)

  8. Max traction amps = 420

  9. Max brake amps = 250

  10. Dalian Loco Works HXD3B (9792 kW THP)

  11. Starting tractive effort of 128,000 lbs (570 kN)

  12. Continuous tractive effort of 114,000 lbs (506 kN) @ 43 mph

  13. Dynamic Brake effort of 108,000 lbs (480 kN) @ 45.64 mph; flat curve down to 3 mph, fade to 0 lbs @ 0.25 mph.

  14. Wheel horsepower of 13,121 hp (9,792 kW) @ 43 mph

  15. Maximum speed of 75 mph

  16. Weight = 330,690 lbs (147.63 imperial tons)

  17. Max traction amps = 570 h. Max brake amps = 480

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

  1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RISC\AIAG"

  2. Open the "Just_Trains_China_Railways_HXD3D_Physics_Tweak_Mod.rar" file

  3. Drag the folder from the .rar file into the directory from step 1.

  4. Physics mod installation is complete.

  5. Run TS2016 to confirm.

OWNER'S MANUAL: Once installation is complete, pack defaults to HXD3D physics. In order to swap physics, follow the instructions below:

  1. Open folders until directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RISC\AIAG\RailVehicles\Electric\HXD3D\Simulation" 1b. You will see two folders; "HXD3D" & "HXD3B"

  2. Open the respective folder that contains the physics set you want to use and copy all (CTRL + A) the files within (CTRL + C).

  3. Proceed back to the directory from step 2.

  4. Paste the selected files (CTRL + V); overwrite when prompted

  5. Physics swap should be complete. Run TS2016 to confirm.

Thank you for downloading and installing.

Please contact me if there is a problem with the functionality of this mod pack.

Enjoy =)
