Train Sim World 4 - Improved signal visuals

Hey guys. This mod dramatically improves the look and behaviour of the signals and its flares in TSW, but especially so for new TSW 4 British routes.

Nonetheless, this will benefit ALL TSW routes. The details of what routes are benefited from it and how it affects then is listed below:

TSW 4 British routes ONLY

  • Brand new high-resolution signal textures
  • Brand new signal emissive visuals (brighter looking light source coming from the signals)
  • Brand new signal emissive colours (more colour accurate reds, yellows and greens)
  • Brand new lens flare visuals (much more realistic looking, with the old low-resolution variant replaced)
  • Brand new lens flare brightness (much brighter from a distance, especially so at night)
  • Significantly increased lens flare render distance, especially so at night (lens flares can now be seen from MUCH further away)
  • New lens flare behaviour (the flare size responds to the distance away from it in a much more realistic way. It no longer 'grows' unrealistically)

ALL other TSW routes, even older ones

  • Brand new lens flare visuals (much more realistic looking, with the old low-resolution variant replaced)
  • Brand new lens flare brightness (much brighter from a distance, especially so at night)
  • Significantly increased lens flare render distance, especially so at night (lens flares can now be seen from MUCH further away)
  • New lens flare behaviour (the flare size responds to the distance away from it in a much more realistic way. It no longer 'grows' unrealistically)

OMG, this mod is a lifesaver! Signals once again visible out past a half-mile, like they were in Sand Patch and GWE! Makes all the difference.

Hmm. That sounds like an add-on manager problem, which I don’t think I’ll be able to do anything about.

Unfortunately a lot of mods break with TSW 4 due to this.

Hi, with this mod, red signals at high distance with a view angle are displayed like orange signals. (tested on Eastcoastway route)

Wow, what a great enhancement to the visuals. Never expected this mod to have such a great effect! Thank you for that.

Question, though. Do you think this kind of treatment would also be possible for the headlights of trains that come towards you? They always come right at you from nowhere...

This mod seems to make ECML crash.
It worked fine until the most recent update from Dovetail.
Now, while all other routes seem okay, ECML crashes regardless of what you do - even trying to spawn on foot.
I removed every mod and added them back one by one. All worked fine apart from this one.
