NEC: Boston - Providence PIS Extension and Fixes

  • by Aran
  • Downloaded 1,033 times

This mod makes signficant changes to the station directory of the Northeast Corridor: Boston - Providence route to, among other things, capitalise all stations in the list in order to make them fit in a lot more with the overall asthetic of the US-style PIS boards, change some display names to make them more true-to-life and correct the numerous mistakes DTG made when setting up the markers on the stations on the Stoughton Branch which fixes the issue of the PIS not displaying proper destination or "Canton Junction" as a stopping point on services to Stoughton.

A comprehensive list of changes can be found below:

  • Capitalises all letters in every station name to make them fit in better with the US-style PIS boards
  • Changes some station names to be more realistic according to reference images:
    • Boston South Station -> Boston
    • New York -> New York Penn
  • Adds a large selection of additional stations to the station directory for use on trains which support them.
    • Amtrak Northeast Regional Stations
    • Amtrak Lakeshore Limited Stations
    • Special Destinations including TOC names
  • Fixes issues with the PIS on Stoughton Branch services by correcting the markers in the Station Directory on the Stoughton Branch stations.

Are you using the TODv4 mod? if so, that's why

Yes as Cash has said, the TOD4 mod on will break the PIS screens on all routes because of how different the lighting is set up, regardless of whether you have my mod installed or not.

Would you consider updating this mod for the Acela services? DTG didn't bother to set up any of the off map destinations so they all just say Providence.

That would need changes to the timetable of the route, as off-world destinations are set there for each service individually, this mod changes the station directory.
I did consider looking into it but the TT is currently being updated internally and that would end up braking any TT mod so I'll wait until that has been released to see if maybe it's already added there.
