AEM-7AC DC Physics Sound Mod Update by Mike Kam (FanRailer)

EMD_AEM-7AC_DC_Physics_Sound_Mod_Update.rar - 2 MB

Description
 
This is the Amtrak EMD AEM-7AC & DC Physics and Sound Upgrade pack, TS2016 edition.
 
In order to utilize this freeware physics & sound upgrade, you must have purchased the Northeast Corridor Add-On pack available at Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65232/
 
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.
 
The purpose of this pack is to correct some physics errors in the original AEM-7, correct the coupler spacing issue with the Amfleet cars in version 48.9a of TS2015, and add new horn and bell sounds.
THIS UPDATE adds AEM-7AC physics and sounds (and number restrictions). Read the "owner's manual" section for instructions on how to switch between the two physics sets.
 
Sound portion information:
On popular request, this pack comes with two (now three) bell sounds (low pitch and high pitch), both recorded directly off of AEM-7DC units, in addition to the K5LA (which comes with exterior and in-cab loops).
Read the "owner's manual" section for instructions on how to switch between the two different bell sounds.
 
NOTE: The interior E-bell sound is VERY soft, so if you don't hear it unless you're trying or the volume is up, that's normal.
 
Physics Parameter Change Log (DC Unit):
1. Adjusted tractive effort and braking effort curves based on real world figures available online: http://www2.hcmuaf.edu.vn/data/phamducdung/thamkhao/Mark's%20Standard-Handbook/Transportation.pdf
2. Adjusted maximum amperage ratings; 2250 for traction and 970 for braking. Traction amps based here: http://i324.photobucket.com/albums/k329/mestevet/01671s11Kvsm.jpg

TS2016 UPDATE: JohnS brake fix has been applied. Brake pipe pressure has been raised from 90 PSI to 110 PSI.
 
Physics Parameter Change Log (AC Unit):
1. Adjusted tractive effort curve based on real world figures available online: http://www.sonic.net/~mly/Caltrain-Electrification/2000-08-Rolling-Stock-Draft/a7.pdf
2. Adjusted maximum amperage ratings; 517 for traction and 340 for braking. 517 amps = 51,700 lbs TE; -340 amps = 34,000 lbs dynamic brake effort
 
Technical specifications:
 
1. EMD AEM-7DC (7000 THP)
 a. Starting tractive effort of 65,000 lbs (289.1344 kN)
 b. Continuous tractive effort of 45,000 lbs (200 kN) @ 64 mph
 c. Dynamic Brake effort of 15,600 lbs (70 kN) @ 36 mph
 d. Wheel horsepower of 7,600 hp (5,672 kW) @ 65 mph; fade to 5,000 hp (3,731 kW) @ 125 mph
 e. Maximum speed of 125 mph
 i. Weight = 202,823.2 lbs (92 metric tons)
 k. Max traction amps = 2250
 l. Max brake amps = 970
 
2. EMD / Alstom AEM-7AC (7000 THP)
 a. Starting tractive effort of 51,700 lbs (230 kN) @ 0 mph - 43 mph
 b. Continuous tractive effort of 38,240 lbs (170.1 kN) @ 65 mph
 c. Dynamic Brake effort of 34,000 lbs (177.93 kN) @ 64.5 mph - 18 mph; fade to 0 lbs @ 13.5 mph
 d. Wheel horsepower of 6,834 hp (5,100 kW) @ 65 mph - 125 mph
 e. Maximum speed of 125 mph
 i. Weight = 202,823.2 lbs (92 metric tons)
 k. Max traction amps = 517
 l. Max brake amps = ~340 (@ 90% auto brake handle)
 
IMPORTANT; Install Instructions
 
1. Open the Northeast Corridor asset pack until the directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NorthEastCorridor"
2. Then open the "Railworks_AEM-7DC_Physics_&_Sound_Mod_Update.rar" file.
3. Drag all file folders from the .rar file and into the directory you opened in step one.
4. Overwrite if asked.
5. The installation should be complete. Run TS2015 to check.
 
OWNER'S MANUAL:
Once installation is complete, the default bell that is being used is the e-bell. In order to change the bell that is used, follow the instructions below:
1a. Open folders until directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NorthEastCorridor\Audio\RailVehicles\Electric\AEM-7\Cab"
1b. You will see three folders; "High Bell", "Low Bell", and "E-bell"
2. Open the respective folder that contains the horn.proxyxml bell you want to use and copy the file (CTRL + C).
3. Proceed back to the directory from step 1a.
4. Paste the selected file (CTRL + V); overwrite when prompted
5. Bell swap should be complete. Run TS2015 to confirm.
 
Once installation is complete, pack defaults to AEM-7AC physics. In order to swap physics, follow the instructions below:
1a. Open folders until directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NorthEastCorridor\RailVehicles\Electric\AEM7\Default\Simulation"
1b. You will see two folders; "AC" & "DC"
2. Open the respective folder that contains the physics set you want to use and copy the files within (CTRL + C).
3. Proceed back to the directory from step 1a.
4. Paste the selected files (CTRL + V); overwrite when prompted
5. Physics swap should be complete. Run TS2015 to confirm.
 
Once installation is complete, the pack defaults to choosing only the AEM-7AC numbers. In order to change the numbers that are used, follow the instructions below:
1a. Open folders until directory reads "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\RailWorks\Assets\RSC\NorthEastCorridor\RailVehicles\Electric\AEM7\Default\Engine"
1b. You will see two folders; "AC" & "DC"
2. Open the respective folder that contains the .dcsv file you want to use and copy the file within (CTRL + C).
3. Proceed back to the directory from step 1a.
4. Paste the selected file (CTRL + V); overwrite when prompted
5. Bell swap should be complete. Run TS2015 to confirm.
