iR | KWG DB ICE 3 Enhancement Pack BETA

  • Downloaded 4,448 times

Once again, this mod is still in beta. It is still missing multiple features I originally planned for the first release, although I decided to publish it anyway due to personal reasons possibly holding up progress in the future.

This mod is a complete remake from scratch of the older iR ICE 3(M) enhancement packs for SKA and HMA. As it's still in beta, it misses the sound improvements since proper samples are missing at the moment.
The mod, at this stage, fixes or improves the following things to make the ICE 3 more realistic:

  • Added the wider black lines on the sides of the doors

  • Adjusted the colours of the green/red stripe

  • Replaced fonts on decals where necessary (Bordrestaurant & Klimaschützer text)

  • Changed/adjusted the headlight texture

  • Lowered the camera position in the driver's seat

  • Added the seam of the front window covering in the cab

  • Added multiple details in the DMI as well as reworked most indicators

  • Reworked the textures of the "Fahren/Bremsen" screen

  • Changed the colour of the external PIS to orange

  • Removed the red interior LED screens (a black square is still left behind)

  • Removed the duplicate "ICE" from the interior displays (thanks to TaskPlays)

  • Fixed most typos in the MTDs (with the help of TaskPlays)

  • An AddOn which overwrites the "Klimaschützer" stripe with a full traffic red one is available. For this, install iR_KWG_93805403_EP_!AddOn_VRed_BETA1.pak as well.


Update v0.1b (BETA 1b), 11/11/22

  • Readjusted seating position after feedback
  • Added "ETCS not equipped" indicator in the DMI
  • Adjusted colour of the LED headlights
  • Other minor fixes (originally part of BETA 2)

If the older ICE 3(M) mods are installed, this can operate along side those (I'm assuming this is just for the KWG ICE 3)?

Exactly, the older mods by irFlouz/FloribertHD are for the other ICE3(M)s, this one is only for the KWG one. Everything should be compatible.

For some reason the mods don't work for me, I drop the .pak file in the DLC folder and nothing changes in-game :/

Great mod! Would be nice if you could also fix the "Nächster Station" issue and also the issue with the green "TÜR AUF" - LEDs showing up even when the doors are closed.

This mod makes the ICE 3 so incredibly much better. The colour of the stripes is way more accurate and I love the thicker black lines of the doors :D

Very nice mod. I wonder how were You able to change drivers camera position. Is there any tutorial how to do it? There are so many trains where drivers view is wrong and needs correction. In TS 20xx I did it myself using editors but in TSW it seems to be more complicated, not so accessible and certainly requires knowlidge on UnrealEngine. I know how to unpack TSW .pak files but haven't tried to mod something yet.

Love the mod, it makes driving the ICE so much more enjoyable. Especially things like the PIS colour and spelling mistakes were really frustrating so it's great to have a fix for them. However I feel like the driver's height is now too low and that something in between what it was at and what you set it too is more appropriate. Would really appreciate a patch that adjusts that at some point if you are able to do that.

No way is the drivers view height too low. I think it's still 3-4 cm-s too high. Most of drivers views are too high in TSW3. I'm sure they (DTG) wanted to improve the driving immersion, but outcome is unfortunately very unreralistic. Watch videos and ICE-3 in-cab photos. Confusion is made here by absolutely unsuccessfully modelled drivers seat. The backseat is abnormally high.

I have seen images, I know that it's too low. The standard one is too high but the change is too strong and now it's too low, it's very clear when passing any other trains that it just makes no sense the way it is now. The head barely gets to the bottom of the windows on the ICE 1

I think drivers desk is not in right place too in ICE-3 cab model. It's height is wrong (too low). And drivers seat model is completely wrong.

Whenever you have the time, could you possibly consider making the red stripe 403 a seperate reskin please? It would be greatly appreciated 🙏

Could you possibly make both liveries into one so you can access them from the menu?

the mod works fine for me. you should check if you have anything else that could cause an incompatibility.
