Great mod, have you in plan any other trains on any other routes?

Avatar of Myron

+1. would be nice if there were announcements atleast for S-Bahn trains across german routes. Regio trains don't really need it though (maybe, but no idea if that's worth it), and ICEs rather not at all, as those aren't automated irl.

Avatar of Smokey

Yeah, but if he integrated that inside game already. He maybe can add functional G key for it as in Blackpool track.

Yes, I plan on adding more when I have time. Let me know if you have any suggestions for which routes/trains to add next.

Awesome mod! Very clever work, well done.
If you'd like to do Fife Circle 170 and 800 services we have the audio files available;)

Perfect would be any German route which has no announcements (all of them). Same for USA routes.

Not sure where that error is coming from. Make sure you followed the installation instructions correctly.

I would love to see Vorarlberg have announcements or generally the 4024

S-Bahn Cologne and Munich could get some announcements, that'd be great.

Another here for Bakerloo. If ever there was a route that needs announcements, it's that one.

Btw, for the Class 700 timetable on BML, the train announcements do not announce the destination as Cambridge. Instead, it just stays blank!

Avatar of tyler58546
tyler58546 12 days ago

Thanks for letting me know. Its fixed in the latest update.

Avatar of thediamonder11

In addition to this, it also doesn't announce Hitchin as a calling point.

Avatar of tyler58546
tyler58546 12 days ago

Even after the update? Hitchin should be in there now.

Rename the Win64 folder in the DL to WinGDK. and copy over as usual.

Wow this is amazing, good work! Would be nice to see some announcements for the Electrostars too :)

Avatar of Bescot

I've had two crashes on BML which is fine without the announcements, also there is a lot of stuttering on all routes. I hope this can be optimised in future patches. I've had to remove as having smooth gameplay is more important to me, despite the immersion this mod would add.

Avatar of choo_choo_charlie
choo_choo_charlie 12 days ago

Yea I have to say I've had stuttering problems too

Avatar of tyler58546
tyler58546 12 days ago

I've just released an update which should fix the lag.

Avatar of JetWash

With the latest update I'm getting stuttering (actually, not just stuttering but fairly long pauses) on all routes unfortunately. Removing the mod made it stop which is a massive shame because it's an awesome concept!

Avatar of Cash
Cash 12 days ago

After playing a while, I've realised the sturrering is quite bad with this mod installed. If you could look into some optimisation that would be great.

Firstly, This is incredible! Well done!

Do you think you'll be able to add some LNER announcements at some point?

Avatar of Simon

Would it be possible to make the announcements quieter when you are outside and not be heard outside when the doors are closed?

Avatar of Damian_C06

awesome mod really game changing! found a few issues tho.

when on the BML700 timetable it does not announce anything when departing a station and only plays "we will shortly be arriving at" and "PMTGBTTATP this is ______"

when i tested this on the 710 it was a very pleasent experience. however, when going into barking it should say "if you see something that doesnt look right speak to staff or text BTP on 61016"

overrall as I said game changer and I cannot wait to see what plans you have for the future.

Avatar of nahtankski

This is awesome! My biggest critique is that the class 700 announcements dont have any reverb or echo to them. It sounds like the announcement are being played right in my ear rather than from a speaker back in the car. They sound perfect on the 710 so whatever you did to those would be great on the 700 too!

Should I rewrite existing TS2Prototype folder in game directory?

Avatar of tyler58546
tyler58546 7 days ago

To install, drag the "WindowsNoEditor" folder from the zip file into your TSW4 game directory (eg. steamapps\common\Train Sim World 4). If asked to overwrite existing files, choose yes.

Stone Crossing doesn't work. But overally it works even on Southeastern High Speed.

Having just tried this on both the 710 and 700 I can say that I'm truly impressed, it feels very authentic and adds so much to the experience - well done!

Yep, this mod is really revolution in modding (announcements are missing on most routes from DTG, so if author expand this functionality to US or European routes, it would be nice)

Absolutely amazing work, really great to have announcements in. I was really disapointed when the 700 didn't come with them and doubly so for the Goblin so this is a fantastic addition to have!
