KWG ICE 1: Enhancement Pack

This huge collaborative effort in the works since TSW 3's Early Access period finally releases to the public! (for realsies this time)

WARNING: The GSM-R causes crashes with power cars painted with the TSW Livery Designer! Make sure to remove all Livery Designer ICE 1 liveries. This crash issue seems unlikely to be fixed, unless DTG adds support for "Child Actors" with Livery Designer.

Excellent mod as always! TrippleJ814 released a mod back on the 4th that fixed the green stripe color. It seems he pulled that from release. I'm assuming it's not needed anymore after the work you guys did here?

Avatar of Foobian
Foobian 12 Apr 2023

TrippleJ814's mod is for DTG's "DB BR 403 ICE 3 Railbow Add-On", which also featres a green stripe livery for the ICE 1. This DLC is currently unaffected by this mod, and if you want the more realistic shade of green for the stripe you still need TrippleJ814's mod.

Avatar of W2SJW
W2SJW 12 Apr 2023

Thanks - I meant to mention in my first post I was referencing not that one, but 'TripleJ814_LocoAddon2-ICE1-GreenStripeColourCorrection'. I assume the same scenario applies, so I'll put that mod back in.

Fantastic mod. When driving the IGBT and GTO the sounds make you feel they are two completely diffrent trains. I did spot an anoyng problem, after 180 km/h there is strange sound loop (similar to a traction engine noise followed by hissing sound) that keeps looping continously. This ocurs only inside the cab of both the IGBT and GTO variants. Could you please look into this ? It this would be fixed it would make the experience even better. Thank you :)

Avatar of Raphael
Raphael 25 Apr 2023

The sound you described is a rolling sound, they actually sound like that irl ^^

Avatar of TrainhunterHD
TrainhunterHD 31 May 2023

Not really. I watched numerous cab videos out of ICE1 and all of them have a constant running sound without looping noises. And it makes sense because there is no reason for something to start looping itself but only after 170-180 km/h Its like you cough 1 second when passing over a switch or flange lube system sound (if even audible in ICE) and that gets looped over and over.
Maybe its my fault since i don't know how to describe the sound properly :)

I want to thank all involved for this Mod! Until now I have not driven the BR401 much. This has changed with this Mod. I was not even aware that a good sound has such a massive impact on immersion! So, thanks again.
Two hopes, though: I hope the GTO will sub into other routes as well (currently I only see the IGBT on LRS, for example) and I also hope the GSM-R will make an appearance on more loco Mods, as its good fun:-)
Great stuff!

Steam. FWIW, the 401 (both versions) runs fine on the Training Center- it's Kassel-Wurzburg that crashes.

Avatar of solicitr
solicitr 11 Jul 2023

All right, found the problem. It wasn't the 401 at all; it was a bad mod on the 425 (which appears in Kassel-Würzburg only as AI) - that was causing the route to crash (also München-Augsburg and Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr)

the outside horn is not audible in cab, while the window on my right is open, so I think I should be able to hear it from the outside. I don't know if you can do something there cause you recently
"Exterior horn sound no longer audible in cab"
but I think it's possible to make it sound when the windows are open, no?

Avatar of Foobian
Foobian 8 Jul 2023

You are correct, that was a change with the latest update. Unfortunately, DTG's setup uses the "Window open" occlusion setup for when opening the engine room door as well, so you would have also heard the exterior horn in that case

Avatar of Myron
Myron 10 Jul 2023

another thing, I have an idea for the issue with the door sounds, you could look into how DTG managed to do it and then do the same, with the new sounds, because maybe it's an issue with the length of the audio files?

Avatar of Maggus
Maggus 10 Jul 2023

As far as I am informed, we have tried already everything. By making the recording shorter, it wont be realistic anymore. The issue is that DTG in this case made the door animation to fast.

Avatar of Myron
Myron 10 Jul 2023

cant that issue with the door animation be changed, because you also somehow managed to split the ICE 1 in the game up into two different variants, one of them having a musical scale, shouldnt the other thing be possible too then?

speaking of possibilities, is it even possible to add new features to exisiting trains such as openable windows in the ICE 3??

Avatar of Hannah Hermine
Hannah Hermine 10 Jul 2023

the animation thing is a whole different thing than the splitting in two versions,If my knowledge is right you´d have to make the animation from scratch

no,that feature sadly isnt possible,we would have to change the model for that and we are not allowed to do that sadly

Avatar of Myron
Myron 13 Jul 2023

why would you not be allowed to change the model though thats weird

I was hunting for secrets and found some liveries of the "30 Jahre ICE"-ICE while unpacking the mod files, but that's not really a secret anyways since it is listed in the "planned" section of the description here. Will that ICE be in the next update, when the LDV-Variants are done?

and I don't know if that was on purpose but I believe you misspelled "Katze" as "Gatze"

Awesome mod! Do you think it's possible to do a red stripe ICE 3 livery that works alongside the green stripe one? Currently I use this mod to have a red stripe variant, but it overwrites the green one (and I would like the variety of having both liveries present in game) :)

Avatar of Myron
Myron 29 Jul 2023

well, there is a substitution mod that makes it possible to have red stripe and green stripe ICE 3s to run on the same routes (but the green stripe one is then from MAG when the red striped one is the modded KWG one) and/or having the red striped ones be the ICE 3M, the DB Class 406.
