    Head for the sunny south of France once again with the LGV Rhône-Alpes & Méditerranée route extension, which is available now for Train Simulator.

    Very interesting. I wasn't expecting this so soon after DTG's other releases, but it makes a welcome addition to the French railway network.

    It might have been more interesting if other types of TGV unit were released with this add-on.
    Instead it's just a repaint of the Default unit.

    Disappointing

    I'm loving this new extension. I've always liked TGVs so it's great to have this route in Train Sim!

    One thing I've noticed though, is the physics/acceleration of the TGV seems way off since the update. It seems like something's up with the Tractive Effort curve. I took a look at the TractiveEffortVsSpeed file in the add-on and noticed the values match up with the graph of the real train, except the graph is for the entire trainset (two combined locomotives) rather than one, so essentially in-game each power car has the force of two power cars.

    I halved the Y values in the TractiveEffortVsSpeed file and found that it now performs much more realistically. It now takes over 5 minutes to reach 300kph which is much closer to the real thing, rather than as before where it can get to 300 in around 2 minutes up a steep gradient.

    Apart from that issue I really love driving it, and really looking forward to the Reseau!

    Would it be possible for this to be looked at for a future update?

    I really think that the circuit breaker simulations should’ve been added for the Duplex since it’s very important to open the circuit to switch pantographs and to cross neutral sections.

    Hi Dan,

    I've booked this in to our system for you.

    Best, Steve
