This mod adjusts the colour of the FGW HST and 166 to be more true to life!
I felt the FGW stuff in the base game was a bit too bright, and full of wrong hues.
It just didn't really look right at all, so this mod aims to fix that!
UPDATED TSW3 Compatible (05/10/2022)
With another big thanks to Alexander L., this mod is now compatible with TSW3!
You'll have to download the new file for TSW3, and the old one for TSW2!
Do note this only applies to the main pack 'BetterBlueFGW' and the versions that only have the one 166 will still work on both games
Also, do make sure you download the TSW3 updated version of Foobian & Alexander L.'s update fixes!
There are four different versions of this mod:
!Laika-Alex-BetterBlueFGW-TSW3 - RECOMMENDED FOR TSW3: This contains the HST and BOTH versions of the Class 166!
!TS2Prototype-Laika-Alex-BetterBlueFGW - RECOMMENDED FOR TSW2: This contains the HST and BOTH versions of the Class 166!
!TS2Prototype-Laika-BetterBlueFGW-Plain166 - This contains the HST and the later plain blue version of the Class 166.
!TS2Prototype-Laika-BetterBlueFGW-DynamicLines166 - This contains the HST and the Dynamic Lines version of the Class 166.
Compared the colours with quite a few different real life photos so it's as close as my eye thinks for now,
do bare in mind your monitor and your ini settings may vary the result.
I would recommend adding 'r.ToneMapperFilm=0' to your engine.ini for some of the best results.
I've also uploaded my .ini to this site so you can download that if you wish!
If you don't know how to do this, just ask in the TSC Discord and someone will help you out!
This mod also adjusts the reflectiveness of the FGW AND GWR stock, but not by much.
You will need the FGW Enabler mod from trainsim.cz for this to work!
With a big thanks to Alexander L. once again, you can now have BOTH versions of the 166 in one pack!
Because of the recent pres crew update to GWE, you will need to download Foobian & Alexander L.'s 'GWE's First Great Western: June 20th 2022 Update Fixes' for FULL compatability and to allow the FGW stuff to appear on the route. I will add this as a dependancy down below, you will still need the FGW Enabler mod.

Just drop into your DLC folder.
I didn't adjust the size of the decal on the side of the Plain 166, this is because I don't know how to add new decals in the editor yet.
I plan to fix this once I learn!
