Siemens ACS-64 Traction Physics & Sound Upgrade by Mike Kam (FanRailer)

TS2015_Siemens_ACS-64_Traction_Physics_Sound_Mod_Update.rar - 3.3 MB



This is the Siemens ACS-64 Traction Physics & Sound Upgrade Pack Update for TS2015.

In order to utilize this freeware physics upgrade, you must have purchased the NEC: New York - New Haven Route Add-On avaliable at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258643/

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 allow the player to run the ACS-64 in either Boost Mode (6400 kW) or Continuous Mode (5000 kW). It also corrects the E-bell sound so that there is doppler effect.

Parameter Change Log:
1. Three different "tractive effort vs speed" files included; one for boost mode, one for continuous mode, and the default text file that the game engine reads.
2. Maximum sustainable speed increased to 125 mph via changes to .bin file parameters.
3. Regenerative brake adjusted to operate down to 1 mph. Maximum effort (34,000 lbs) available from 75 mph down to 3 mph.
4. Ampere parameters adjusted so that 1 amp is = to 1 kN; maximum tractive amps/kN = 320, maximum braking amp/kN = 150.
5. Adjusted traction motor sound proxyxml file so that traction motor sound voume is unaffected by ampere parameter change.
6. Bell Sound File is in mono.
7. Bell Sound File is 16 bit.
8. Bell Sound File is 44,100 hZ
9. I have also played around with the volume of the K5LA in respects to the bell, tuning down the originally loud bell and raising the airchime volume.
10. This pack also corrects the coupler issue with the Amfleet coaches exhibited in Version 48.9a of TS2015.


1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NewYorkNewHaven"
2. Then open the "Railworks_ACS-64_Traction_Physics_&_Sound_Mod_Update.rar" file.
2a. Before proceeding to step 3, make sure your "RSC" folder is NOT set to "read only". You can change the folder settings using the properties function. IF the "RSC" folder is read only, the files will not overwrite existing files when you attempt step 3.
3. Drag both file folders ("RailVehicles" and "Audio") from the .rar in step 2 into the directory you opened in step 1. Overwrite if asked.
4. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to check.

Utilization instructions:
1. The premise of this pack is that you can only run the ACS-64 in one mode at any one time.
2. The default mode of the pack is "boost mode."
2b. Notice that in addition to the "TractiveEffortVsSpeed" text file (default file), there are two other files; Boost = "TractiveEffortVsSpeed (6400kW)" and Continuous = "TractiveEffortVsSpeed (5000kW)".
3. Before playing TS2014, choose the version you want to run (boost or continuous), then proceed open "TractiveEffortVsSpeed" AND the text file that corresponds to the mode you wish to operate in which would be located in the directory stated in step 7 of the install instructions.
4. Select (CTRL + A) and copy (CTRL + C) all contents in the text file that corresponds to the mode you chose, and then select (CTRL + A) all contents in the "TractiveEffortVsSpeed" file and paste (CTRL + V) over the text until both files open are identical.
5. Save the default file.
6. Repeat steps 1 and 2 from the install instructions.
7. Drag the "TractiveEffortVsSpeed" text file into the .ap file directory and overwite when prompted.
8. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to check.
9. If you wish to change the mode you are running in at any time, exit out of TS2015, and repeat steps 3 through 7.

Thank you for downloading and installing.
Enjoy =)
