    Hey guys.

    Just thought I'd show off a few enhancements I am currently making for the South Eastern High Speed route. This is currently a WIP and isn't complete.

    Pictures are captioned below. Let me know what you think of it :)

    Brand new LED signal visuals. The default are the black ones, mine are the grey ones.

    Updated and real life South Eastern map, replacing the boring generic looking one

    I’ve not had a chance to look at ini tweaks, however I will do once I get the opportunity to do so.

    I tried importing your TSW2 ones and oh my word :D:D:D:D:D:D
    Blooming awful lighting lol. I think it screws the eye adaptation and 90% of screen was whiteout.

    That said, these made a tremendous difference for the pop in still.
    [SystemSettings]
    r.DFDistanceScale=10
    r.ViewDistanceScale=4.0
    foliage.LODDistanceScale=4
    r.TextureStreaming=0

    londonmidland Looking good! Have you considered improving the lighting inside stations like you did on Cathcart? I know it's a mammoth task but it would go very well with the beautiful night lighting that we now have in TSW3.

    I'm really looking forward to this to complete SEHS, always loved the JNA reskins as well as the posters, billboards and newpapers. My only request would be if any enhancementpacks which include ballast changes could have a version without as sometimes the ballast changes are not to my personal preference.

    I’ll see how many stations there are to do and I’ll have a think about it. No promises though ;)

    I haven’t seen the final version of the ballast changes, as it’s being made by someone else, however for the time being, I’ll probably only release one version with the ballast change.

    Hi londonmidland excellent to see! Are you able to amend the driver passenger screens on the stations ? A picture would be better than a black / empty screen.

    I have barely played SEHS so I can't comment on the rest, but I do love the concrete. Looks very natural.

    The first of the station lighting upgrades, including a warmer and brighter looking station atmosphere, as well as a cold, blue light for the bus stop style waiting shelters.

    A comparison below showing the changes. Top images are default and bottom images are the changes made.

    Changing the station lighting take a significant amount of time, so I’d say at least a few weeks from now.

    Though I’m hoping you guys will think the wait is worth it :)

    Looking excellent, thanks for your hard work.

    It's still a shame they haven't worked on those speed signs yet. I can't remember what was said about changing that, I believe they are default fonts (they appear on the car stop and signal numbers as well) but can the default numbering system be tweaked or is that impossible? (I understand it would change for all numbers using that default font). It's weird, but it bugs me quite a bit! The German routes all have their proper fonts for speed signs, mileposts etc.
    Apart from that, really loving the route, I think they've even changed the track style/ballast as well for the better.

    Hey guys.

    I’ve always found the EWS livery on the 66 to look a bit too new looking and vibrant looking, which I personally found a bit unrealistic, given its age.

    I decided to tone down the colours a bit, as well as give it some slight weathering. The comparison between the default and edited is shown below.

    What do you guys think?

    Hi there! I can’t wait for this mod to be released publicly and have it in my game :) I’m not sure if you’re able to do this, but do you think you could maybe slightly alter the station PIS screens to say “Dover Priory” and “Ramsgate” instead of “Dover P via Faversham” and “Ramsgate via Faversham” (as seen in the image below)? I find it very irritating as the Faversham gets cut off on the PIS, and on the 465 display too. This is something really minor but if you could fix it that would be great! Keep up the great work :D

    Some weathering I've applied to the DB HKA wagons. It is also a lot less saturated and vibrant looking.

    Here's a direct comparison between the default EWS livery (left) vs my edit (right) on the 66.

    [​IMG]

    I've also made it easier for you guys to determine and pick the latest and greatest Class 66 for use, each time:

    Morning guys.

    The Class 66 headlights have had a big overhaul. Gone is the horribly bright and unrealistic ‘fridge light’ looking lights, with it being replaced with something much more realistic. The picture shows a comparison between the two.

    Were you aware that your GWE lightning mod works straightforwardly in TSW3 while CCL one crashes the game ?

    That's most likely because CCL received a minor preservation crew when TSW3 released.

    Will this work side by side with Bescots Origin Mod or will it conflict do you know?

    Yes, I've been made away that the GCC lighting mod crashes the game, although I haven't had a chance to look into why this happens.

    Street lighting has now been updated. I replaced the horrible daylight white lighting with a warm orange glow.

    LED signals updated to offer better colour accuracy, as well as better viewing angles and increased draw distances.

    It also has a nice new looking 3D effect inside the lens.
