    I just deleted the movies in \Steam\steamapps\common\Train Sim World 2\WindowsNoEditor\TS2Prototype\Content\Movies
    They'll probably come back when there's an update, but I'll just keep on deleting em.

    All we need is E Honda to start wrecking one of the many thousands of black cars as the load screen. Alternatively one of the trains

    Depends on one's tastes- after all, you could turn it off!
    Myself, I wind up just following posted maps, because I don't have the patience to go looking for fallen logs.

    I have become a big fan of driving without the HUD, particularly on German routes. However, this keeps me in the cab which diminishes the sound experience on a loco such as the ICE. The view through the windshield also limits my appreciation for the scenery; this is currently the topic of another thread.

    I used to park a 3 camera just outside of the 406 cockpit to enjoy the view and the amazing sounds - try it if you haven’t experienced it. However this makes going HUD- less hard.

    I wish there were a mod that would give us outside sounds even while we were still in the cab. This would improve the experience in many locos where opening a window is not an option. Giving us a not quite so dark view out the windshield would be great as well.

    I´d like a Mod that lets the HBK 182 substitute for passenger services as I dont have the RT Taurus, and the MRCE Version has all the door controls and everything a passenger Loco needs (except a destination screen)
    MRCE Tauri can also be seen quite often in front of rental or replacement trains, when the new rolling stock, like the Talent 2s when they were introduced, has tecnical problems

    I know that there was an M3 sound mod for TSW 2020, but does it exist at all for TSW2? otherwise can someone point me to any M3 sound improvement, I want to get it but those sounds turn me away.

    I'd like to have a mod, where repaints made with livery editor of the DB BR 101 are being places ingame randomly as it is the case for e.g. Dreden-Riesa locos. But please, just the loco, not the IC-coaches.

    I would like to see a mod that removes the pointless red circle when you walk on the tracks. You are a train driver and in certain situations you are supposed to walk on the tracks. The red circle has been annoying me since its introduction.

    I know you can turn off the HUD, but the compass also disappears, so there is no way to keep the compass visible
    and get rid of the stupid red circle at the same time. Can someone please make it disappear forever?

  11. Do you know if the new editor allows for route editing? I am considering learning Unreal Engine in my free time to modify the game as well, but I don't know how far I could really go with this.

    I don’t own the custom made editor, however I don’t believe you can actually edit anything in the route itself.

    Would a mod to increase the run speed on foot be possible, please?

    From what Londonmidland said this might not be possible, but I want to put it out here anyway.

    A mod that would either populate the hills on Arosa with trees, or uses one of the possibilities that I had loosely heard of to apply some sort of fake trees/tree tops would be stellar.

    I must confess though I have no clue about what is possible with the tools at modders disposal right now.

    At least make the texture under the sparse trees a lot darker.

    The removal of the overheard cables and stuff from the Diesels legends pack. I really miss that mod.

    I'm getting in early that I'd love a mod that puts the correct route maps into london Brighton and a good mix of decent and real to life advertising on the route.

    I'll be sure to make an 'enhancement pack' of some sort for this DLC :)

    When you do the enhancements how deep can you go? What do you have scope to adjust?

    I typically do:

    - Branded advertisements
    - Updated route maps
    - Fix any incorrect colour scheme on station furniture
    - Add brands and logos to assets
    - New generic station announcements
    - Make any applicable visual changes to the signalling
    - Ballast texture improvements
    - Train weathering although this may come as a separate pack*

    There are a few things on my mind, that aren't even really requests yet, I just wonder if they're even possible to change with the current modding knowledge in the game.
    • On the Isle of Wight route there is no unevennes to the tracks, so it's a completely smooth ride all the way. It is pretty unrealistic, and to me something that totally ruins the immersion for the route. I suppose the track unevennes is a number value for each track segment, just like it was in Train Simulator. Would it be possible to modify this value for all track segments on a given route? If so, could Isle of Wight be given realistically uneven tracks?
    • Many trains in the game are missing proper headlight flares when the headlights are switched on. Like the LIRR M7 and M3s, CSX locomotives on Sand Patch grade, DB BR 363, just to name a few. But then there are locomotives in the game that do have that effect, like the trains in Boston Sprinter. So could it be possible to add headlight flare effect to locomotives that currently don't have one?
    • Regarding the topic of headlight flares, would it be possible to make them render/appear from a higher distance? Like the same distance as signal flares do, for example? Currently they start rendering really close to the player so it looks really bad.
    • Regarding headlights again, would it be possible to change headlight strength for a given locomotive? Like people complain about the weak headlights on the CRR F7 a lot. Would it be possible to give it or any other locomotive stronger headlights?
    These are a few quiestions that have been in my head for a while. Do you guys think any of these could technically be changed by modding?

    TBH Dinosbacsi anything is possible with modding if they have the tools. With TSW2 I suspect they haven't got all the tools but I still wouldn't be surprised what they come up with.

    I'm still hoping they can update the diesel Legends mod where they took away the overhead cables and all that as I think it was proving difficult. Haven't touched it since and nor will I untill hopefully they can update that mod.

    Do you have in mind the horn of the irFlouz DB BR 187? It should also be included on 146, 185 and 182. It is truly immersive.

    This has been on my radar for a while now and I do plan to get to it.
    I've had a test version of this ready for a while now. I have some more work to do for different DLc combos but it's fully working.
    That was also my mod. I ported it to TSW2 last September but now I see issues I have to fix so it nor the LIRR M1 have been ported to 4.26. Only my MNRR scheme has.

    I’d echo the headlights. I was playing sand patch at night and it’s like the light doesn’t cast any beam forward

    First of all a big thanks for everyone that has made mods for this game, It adds so much to the experience !!

    A small mod I would like is one for the cab rattle sound on London Commuter route, The 377 & 387 has to me anyway a bad ratting sound that plays at a random moment and it is really annoying. To my ears it sound's like a rattlesnake and I hate snakes :) I have driven the Ap versions of the 377 & 387 on TS Classic and the rattle sound is not there so it did not come from Ap, I know sound is a hot topic and not everyone will have the same opinion as me, Thanks for reading and any help will be appreciated :)

    I think the said that was just put in door effect. I do like the consideration of things moving, creaking etc but I guess someone will like and others not so

    So you plan on porting your M3 sound mod in the future? That would be pretty great to see.

    Sometimes I'm also thinking about trying to get into TSW modding to see if I could do any improvements for LIRR (or any other routes). Maybe if I have the time sometimes. Are there any good reference material for TSW modding?

    I'd like one that extends the render distance of the grass and ground foliage.
