Dash 9 Enhancements

· 233×

UPDATE: The file should no longer be corrupt.

Included in this pack:

A set of brand new textures for the Standalone and Donner Pass Dash 9s.

  • The alpha channels have been completely remade to give off a nicer effect of paint; I.e the paint is shinier on brighter colours and vice versa.
  • The CN and Espee liveries have had their colours reworked to be more accurate to the prototype.
  • With kind permission from Monchito5 I have used his BNSF, Norfolk Southern and Warbonnet textures as a base for the respective liveries in this pack. This ensures much more accurate colours on these liveries.
  • All textures have been upscaled to 4K using AI.
    GEVO-12 Pack lens-flare applied (the 7FDL-16 lens-flare was a strange pink colour).
  • I've also removed the horrible headlight glow from the Donner Pass Dash 9. This was still present even after the Searchlight pack had been installed for some reason.

These will overwrite the default textures so I advise you backup the default textures if you want to revert to them for whatever reason.
For lens-flare to appear ensure that MLWAudio > GE-GEVO-12 & MLWAudio > GE-FDL16 are enabled in the scenario editor.
If you experience any issues with these enhancements please let me know in the comments.

Requirements

For BNSF, CN, NS & Warbonnet Liveries
BNSF Dash 9 DLC - Unfortunately this DLC is no longer available outside of the USA. I was lucky enough to acquire it before the ban took place.
MLWAudio 7FDL-16 Enhancement Pack
MLWAudio GEVO-12 Enhancement Pack
Monchito5 Dash 9 Improved Textures (otherwise you'll have strange artefacts like colours that don't match).

For Espee Livery
Donner Pass DLC
MLWAudio 7FDL-16 Enhancement Pack
MLWAudio GEVO-12 Enhancement Pack

If you only own one of these packs then only the liveries you own will be affected. E.g if you only owned Donner Pass due to regional restrictions then you'd get the improved Espee livery without any issues.
I've also decided to remove the clean versions of the BNSF & Warbonnet liveries. I feel they looked too toyish and even when new they would have had at least a bit of dirt on them! In scenarios they'll simply be replaced with their respective weathered versions.

Installation Instructions

Copy the provided Assets folder into your RailWorks directory.
Clear Cache in the game settings.

Additional Comments

A massive thank you to Monchito5 for allowing me to upscale is BNSF, NS and Warbonnet textures to 4K. I recommend you check out his content (especially his UP GEVOs, they're really good)!
