New! Updated to version 2.0! If you've downloaded prior to June 29th, 2021, please download "SPG_CSX_MP15DC_YN3_V2.0.zip" and overwrite the original files to update. Requirements Train Sim World 2 Caltrain MP15DC Diesel Switcher Loco Peninsula Corridor: San Francisco - San Jose What This Mod Does Gameplay Adds the CSX MP15DC in YN3 livery and replaces the GP-38 in 15 Cumberland Yard Services as well as adding it to the Cumberland Switchback Scenario. This effectively makes the MP15DC YN3 the yard goat for Cumberland Yard. This is not a reskin. The original Caltrain MP15DC CT is still fully available for use on the Peninsula Corridor route, this mod simply adds a variant of the MP15DC, in YN3 livery, that is completely independent of the Caltrain loco for use on Sand Patch Grade. Locomotive The model itself had to be modified just to allow for a proper CSX logo on the loco, not to mention the new paintjob and decals. I had to modify and re-import both the Exterior and Cab meshes of the locomotive. The resulting model is a fairly accurate representation of an actual CSX MP15DC in YN3 livery. Furthermore, once imported into Unreal, proper paths had to be set to the assets used by the locomotive to essentially make it possible to turn it into a stand-alone locomotive independent of the Caltrain one (although they do share some features). Optional Feature Also provided in the zip file for Version 1.1 is "TS2Prototype-TS-SPG-CSX-MP15DC-FlippedFormation.pak" (created by Anna_AWVR a.k.a. Yuri), which is an alternate Nose to Nose formation for the majority of the services to spice things up. The default formation for the MP15DCs is cab to cab, noses out, so you drive looking forward. However, if you wish to use the alternate nose to nose (cabs out) formation, please install this file along with the main mod pak following the instructions below. Changes Version 2.0 ⦁ Separated the loco into it's own entity, thus leaving the Caltrain version of the MP15DC intact - this part actually entailed a whole lot of development ⦁ Adjusted the glossiness of both inside and outside of the loco ⦁ Other miscellaneous tweaks Version 1.11 ⦁ Corrected some vertices weight issues for decals (issue was visible only when rear cab door was open) ⦁ Adjusted color of CSX logo text ever so slightly to better match it's counterparts Version 1.1 ⦁ Edited the textures and made sure there are no parts with bad texturing, also changed the tone of the blue color ever so slightly to match existing stock more, and a bunch of other touchups to other maps (MRAO) respectively ⦁ Corrected various smoothing issues on both the Exterior and Cab meshes, overall presentation should be better ⦁ Removed Brake Cut-out and compartment from the Exterior mesh (it was on the right hand side, on top of the Emergency Fuel Cut-off) ⦁ Removed roof scoop from the Exterior mesh ⦁ Removed the 2 blank screens from the Cab mesh (top of control stand) ⦁ Added more decals (Watch Your Step, F (front) decal, etc.) ⦁ Added proper CSX MP15DC road numbers 1140 - 1149 (initial release used only 2 from original release) ⦁ Adjusted MP15DC reflectors to match default CSX stock slightly better, although still limited by the fact that default CSX reflectors are their own material ⦁ Other misc. corrections Version 1.0 - Initial Release ⦁ Substituted GP-38 with MP15DC on 15 Cumberland Yard Services ⦁ Added MP15DC to Cumberland Switchback ⦁ New menu Thumbnail ⦁ Modified Exterior Model of MP15DC ⦁ -- Removed the polygons for the old Caltrain decal along with the hinge covers ⦁ -- Extensively changed UV map to allow for new livery ⦁ -- Added CSX logo decals to both sides, and remapped the hinges underneath the Logo so that the paint on the hinges matches ⦁ -- Added a bunch of decals all around the loco ⦁ -- Changed road numbers to all be 4 digit ⦁ -- Modeled and UV mapped new ditch light box, moved up all ditch lights to be accurate and on the same height as all CSX locos ⦁ -- Removed number board hood from the front of the cab, moved Horn to main roof (was on top of the removed hood) ⦁ -- Added number boards to the front of the nose ⦁ -- Deleted cup holder looking things that were above the left ditch light on both front and back of loco (it's not present on CSX MP15DCs) ⦁ Modified Cab Model of MP15DC ⦁ -- Changed road numbers to 4 digits ⦁ -- Modified/Removed some other decals ⦁ -- Fixed Rain FX/wiper not working on the front left cab door present on vanilla MP15DC ⦁ Besides the glass and like and some cab textures (dials and whatnot), all other textures and maps were changed, some created entirely from scratch ⦁ Changed interior color to better match CSX stock Legal Notice This add-on contains the usage of non-licensed materials.
