HSTCab.pak (NEW 13/2/23) -Revamp of the cab textures, tweaked Cab lighting, weathered windows, faint non descript GSMR display.
(should work with TSW2)

GWRFGWRVV.pak -Default Driver position and Longer draw distance for Headlamps with lowered intensity to reduce ground shine.
HSTRVV2.pak -All of the above RVV but with a higher Driver position. (Wont work with TSW2)

exfgwHST.pak -Removes FGW Branding from the train exterior, as the case with early ScotRail HST sets. Will work with the better Blue FGW mod found on TSC. (Should work with TSW2)

If you can remove the FGW text, is it possible you could make a HST livery?

No Boa. Its not painted on the side of the loco as you may imagine. Decals are kept in a seperate folder that the game knows to apply exactly where and when. Any new addition would need to go in that folder and the game would place it exactly where the original was.

Are you able to 1) make the cab camera viewing height of the HST and the Class 166 a fraction higher ? 2) disable doors closing on moving off on this HST please ? if you could do a separate mod for the HST / 166 with just those two adjustments, I'd ever so grateful
thank you

Could you make a sort of unreadable texture for the screen to the right of the speedometer, so that its not just blank, even if its just unreadable stuff?

I’ll upload a higher one. Thought it was in there.

Thank you. The original height of the higher one is definitely more enjoyable for me, but nice to have two options because I know some people prefer the default. Such a lovely driving view compared to the default.

Keep up the amazing work. ( we all appreciate it )

GWRFGWRVV.pak doesn't work on TSW 2, I think because of the POV change, as none of your other POV change mods work, kinda annoying as the others work, and the headlamps seem cool. - also same thing with the 166.

The headlamp change is part of the same file needed for the POV change. Its within the trains RVV file. The RVV file must be a different version for tsw3.
