Sound & Physics Mod for ALP-46 & associated Comet Cars

Description

 

This is the DTG New Jersey Transit North Jersey Coast Line ALP-46 (46A) & Comet Car Physics & Sound Mod Pack V1.5

In order to utilize this freeware physics & sound upgrade, you must have purchased the "Train Simulator: NJT ALP-46 Loco Add-On" available here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/258658/

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 make minor physics adjustments to the ALP-46 locomotive, include an ALP-46A Physics set and road numbers, and introduce more accurate sounds for the DLC.

Version 1.0 includes updated horn and bell sounds from Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418). Many thanks to him for allowing me to use his sounds free of charge for this mod.

Version 1.5 includes horn sound for Comet V from Chris Reynolds (MilwaukeeNorth418) and interior bell sound from me.

Version 2.0 will include the signature JohnS brake fix.

General Parameter Change Log (Physics):
1. Slight tweak of TE and Dynamic Brake curves.
2. Include physics and road numbers for ALP-46A; follow instructions below to switch between physics.

General Parameter Change Log (Sounds):
1. New K5LA horn and steel bell recorded directly off of an ALP-46 unit.
2. New Comet IV door chime included.
3. Replaced default traction motor sounds and code with custom code and new traction motor sounds (for both ALP-46 and ALP-46A).
4. Includes option to choose between stell bell and e-bell; follow instructions below to switch between bells.
5. Removes the annoying non-mono brake sounds from the Comet cars.

 b. Continuous tractive effort of 57,840 lbs (257.0447 kN) @ 47.7 mph
 c. Dynamic Brake effort of 34,000 lbs (150 kN) @ 83.53 mph; flat curve down to 5 mph, fade to 0 lbs @ 2 mph.
 d. Wheel horsepower of 7,456 hp (5,480 kW) @ 53 mph
 e. Maximum speed of 100 mph
 f. Weight = 198,400 lbs (90 metric tons)
 g. Max traction amps = 710
 h. Max brake amps = 340

2. Bombardier ALP-46A (5600 kW THP; IGBT Inverters)
 a. Starting tractive effort of 71,000 lbs (316 kN)
 b. Continuous tractive effort of 53,279.71 lbs (237 kN) @ 53 mph
 c. Dynamic Brake effort of 34,000 lbs (150 kN) @ 83.53 mph; flat curve down to 5 mph, fade to 0 lbs @ 1 mph.
 d. Wheel horsepower of 7,504 hp (5,600 kW) @ 53 mph
 e. Maximum speed of 125 mph
 f. Weight = 202,822 lbs (92 metric tons)
 g. Max traction amps = 710
 h. Max brake amps = 340


IMPORTANT; Install Instructions

1. Open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46"
2. Open the "DTG_NJT_ALP-46_Sound_And_Physics_Mod.rar" file
3. Drag both folders from the .rar file into the directory from step 1.
4. Physics & Sound mod installation is complete.
5. Run TS2016 to confirm.

User's Manual:

Physics Swap; upon initial download, the pack defaults to ALP-46 road numbers, physics, and motor sounds. To switch between 46 and 46A #s, physics, and motor sounds, follow the steps listed below:
1. Locate and open the following three directories:
 a. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\RailVehicles\Electric\Alp46\Default"
 b. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\RailVehicles\Electric\Alp46\Simulation"
 c. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\Audio\RailVehicles\Electric\ALP46\Engine\TractionMotors"
2. Within each of those three directories, you will see two folders; "ALP-46" and "ALP-46A"
3. Once you choose which locomotive you want to emulate, open the respective type folder in all three directories from step 1.
4. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1a.
5. Proceed back to directory 1a and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
6. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1b.
7. Proceed back to directory 1b and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
8. Copy (CTRL + C) all files you find in the opened folder located in directory 1c.
9. Proceed back to directory 1c and paste (CTRL + V) the copied files into the directory; overwrite when prompted.
10. If the previous 9 steps were completed properly, the physics swap should be successful; run TS2016 to check.


Bell Swap; upon initial download, the pack defaults to the steel bell. To switch between bells, follow the steps listed below:
1. Locate and open the following directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\DTG\NJT-Alp46\Audio\RailVehicles\Electric\ALP46\Exterior\Horn&Bell"
2. Within that directory that you just opened, you will see two folders; "Steel Bell" and "E-bell"
3. Open the folder for the corresponding bell you wish to use and copy (CTRL + C) all contents within.
4. Proceed back to the directory from step 1 and paste (CTRL + V) the contents you copied into said directory; overwrite if/when asked.
5. Bell swap should be complete; run TS2016 to check.

NOTE: For added realism, remember that the ALP-46 can use both the e-bell and steel bell, but the ALP-46A only comes equipped with the e-bell, so if running with 46A physics, #s, and motor sounds, make sure you've selected the e-bell as well.


Thank you for downloading and installing. Please contact me if there is a problem with the functionality of this mod pack.
Enjoy =)
