This is the Amtrak Acela Express Physics and Sound Upgrade pack (TS2015 version).

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the Amtrak Acela Express EMU Add-On pack avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65231/

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 some physics errors in the original Acela pack and swap in the HHP-8 Hybrid K5LA horn and bell sounds.

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 amp ratings so that 1 amp = 1 kN of effort. Maximum traction amps = 225 amps @ 0 mph.
3. Adjusted individual car weights based on real world figures available online.
4. 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.
5. Top speed has been unlocked from 165 mph to 205 mph. Based on available power from power cars, balancing speed is 186 mph for 7 car set.

IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

3. Drag the folders from the .rar file and into the directory you opened in step one.
