TS2017 EMD F40PH Physics and HEP Mod

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak F40PH 'California Zephyr' Loco Add-On pack avaliable at Steam:

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 =)
