German Trains Substitution Changes & Fixes

  • by TaskPlays
  • Downloaded 8416 times

This package contains a number of changes and fixes to the substitution of German trains (for now mostly locos). The mods are completely modular, just download what you want and need. Some of the mods disable substitution for the respective loco completely, some just disable a Geographic Region and some have tweaks for the Commonness Weighting (how likely is the loco to appear).

For now this package contains the following mods, if you have any wishes, hit me up (on Discord), it's planned to expand this package in the future.

  • BR 112 [HBK]
    • Substitution Disabled: This doesn't work for custom liveries, they will still substitute.
  • BR 143 [RSN]
    • Substitution Disabled
  • BR 143 [DRA]
    • Substitution Disabled: This doesn't work for custom liveries, they will still substitute.
  • BR 143 [DCZ]
    • Substitution Disabled
  • BR 1442 [RT]
    • Substitution Disabled
  • BR 146 [MSB]
    • Substitution Disabled
  • BR 155
    • Substitution Low: Decreases the Commonness Weighting from 1.0 to 0.1 so the loco appears 10 times less. The current value of 1.0 seems to not be intentional as it's higher than for every other German loco.
  • BR 182 MRCE [HBK]
    • Substitution Moderate: Increases the Commonness Weighting from 0.1 to 0.5 so the loco appears 5 times more often.
  • BR 182 [RT]
    • DB Regio Disabled: Stops the RT BR 182 from substituting into passenger trains.
    • DB Regio Disabled + Substitution Moderate: Same as above + Increase Commonness Weighting from 0.1 to 0.5 for freight trains.
    • Substitution Disabled
    • Substitution Moderate: Changes Commonness Weighting from 0.1 to 0.5 so the loco appears 5 times more often.
  • BR 185.2 [KWG]
    • Substitution Fixes: Removes passenger train substitution and add freight train substitution. Also increases the Commonness Weighting from 0.1 to 0.5 so the loco appears 5 times more often.
  • BR 204
    • Substitution Disabled
  • HBK: BR 112 Formations
    • Substituted 5x: Increases the Substitution Probability from 0.1 to 0.5 so a different loco should appear 5 times more often in the BR 112 consists on Hamburg - Lübeck.
    • Substituted 10x: Increases the Substitution Probability from 0.1 to 1.0 so a different loco should appear 10 times more often in the BR 112 consists on Hamburg - Lübeck.
  • KWG AI Stock
    • Substitution Disabled: This disables the KWG AI stock (BR 146, Dostos and BR 442) from substitution and removes them from the menus.

It is already very helpful but as I like the 143 infront of Cargotrains, is it possible to create a 143 passenger Substitution disabled and a Version, where the 112 can Substitute on Dresden-Riesa RE15 and RE18 services, as they are used there

It isn't easily possible to let the 112 only substitute onto the RE 15 / 18 services. Maybe I will try a more complicated solution for that sometime later though. What I planned is to do a mod that only disables the 112 for freight services.

Do you plan to remove the 112 for cargo services?

As it turned out my 143 Cargo remover didn’t work properly I don’t have that mod planned anymore, no.

Thank you very much for those nice little mods. Do you think you can make a mod that swaps all the DCZ cab cars with the DRA cab cars, because the DCZ one is pretty broken at the moment...

Question: I'm a little unclear on the titling of the files. Does for example "BR 143 (RSN) Substitution Disabled" mean that the BR 143 from RSN will no longer substitute anywhere, or that on the RSN route there will no longer be BR 143 substitutions?

Avatar of TaskPlays

Your first assumption is correct, the BR 143 from RSN won't substitute anywhere.
