TS2018 DTG NJT EMD GP40PH-2B Mod Pack

This is the DTG New Jersey Transit EMD GP40PH-2B & Comet Car Physics & Sound Mod Pack Version 1.0


In order to utilize this freeware physics & sound upgrade, you must have purchased the "Train Simulator: NJT GP40PH-2B Loco Add-On" available here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/325991


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 & sound 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 GP40PH-2B locomotive, and will introduce more accurate sounds for the DLC in a later update.


Version 0.8 update: Updated Comet Car drag coefficients to Amfleet standards (drag reduced).


Version 0.8b update: Artifically tweaked engine simulation bin dynamic brake values to compensate for the brake pipe blend delay and maximum attainable DBE percentage from a fully service reduction.


Version 1.0 update: Sound updates included; new horn for the Geep and Comet V. Door sounds also carried over from ALP mod packs.


General Parameter Change Log (Physics):


  1. Slight tweak of TE and Dynamic Brake curves.

  2. Changing the rated power.

  3. Modified coupler slack performance.

  4. Modified fuel capacity.

  5. Raised brake pipe pressure from 90 PSI to 110 PSI.

  6. This fixes issues when operating from Comet V cab car.

General Parameter Change Log (Sounds):


  1. New horn for Geep recorded off of 4303.

  2. Comet V Cab Car horn carried over from ALP mod packs.

  3. Comet door sounds carried over from ALP mod packs.
