TSW4 | Train Lighting & LOD Fixes v1.9.2

  • by JetWash
  • Downloaded 26,303 times
  • Class 801 Azuma | East Coast Mainline | Reduced the cab light intensity to usable levels, reduced the carriage interiors to a more realistic intensity, improved headlight throw distance as well as softened the tone
  • Class 700 | South Eastern Highspeed | Reduced the cab light intensity, significantly reduced the intensity of the carriage interior lights. Fixed the headlight LOD issue that caused the lights of trains to spontaneously appear right in front of you
  • Class 158 | Midland Mainline | Fixed the LOD issue affecting the passenger compartment lighting disappearing once the player or camera was a few feet away from the train
  • Class 142 | Preston Blackpool | Increased the LOD of the interior passengers. A work-in-progress as there is a core issue involved, but better than it was
  • BR103 | Left Rhine | Improved the headlight draw distance and brightness
  • RABe 523 | Lucerne - Sursee | Improved draw distance of the headlights and fixed the headlight LOD issue
  • ICE 3 | Kassel - Wurzburg | Fixed the headlight LOD in the same way as the Class700, with the lights now visible from a realistic distance
  • Class 385 | Edinburgh - Glasgow | Fixed the headlight LOD as above
  • DB BR 628 | Niddertalbahn | Increased attenuation and intensity somewhat to throw a realistic amount of light ahead of the cab
  • 1972 Tube Stock | Bakerloo Line | Added a fix to significantly reduce the intensity of the saloon lights to realistic levels
  • Class 465 | South Eastern High Speed | Fixed the headlight LOD and reduced the intensity of the bugged and 'always on' cab light to make it less jarring and more realistic
  • OBB 4024 Talent 1 | Voralberg | Increased the headlight intensity to make night driving a much more rewarding and realistic experience
  • BR Class 314 | Glasgow Cathcart Circle | Increased the headlight intensity to make night driving a much more rewarding and realistic experience
  • RhB ABe 8/12 Allegra and RhB EW1 Coach | Bernia Line | Improves the headlight intensity and LOD (too short, yet again!), the cab light and the passenger saloon lights for both the unit itself and the EW1 coach
  • EMD F125 & Rotem Cabcars | Antelope Valley | LOD fix for the headlights on both these units
  • DB BR 143 | Dresden - Riesa | Headlight LOD fixes and increased intensity
  • Class 43 HST | Midland Mainline | Includes changes to the cab & desk lights as well as increases the intensity of the headlights a bit as I believe they were unrealistically dim Other packs altering elements of the MML HST are not/cannot be guarenteed to be compatible

New additions

  • LUL 72 Stock | Bakerloo Line | Increased the brightness of the headlights on the LUL72Stock to make them more realistic
  • Railpool BR 193 Vectron | Voralberg | Fixed the headlight LOD pop-in
  • Class 710 | Goblin Line | Reduced the intensity of the headlights on the Class 710 as they are unrealistically bright by default

This includes and is compatible with Laika's Orange PIS fix where appropriate. Huge thanks to Laika for helping make it compatible. The Class 801 is compatible with Aran's PIS mod

NOTE The passengers and/or the lighting on some of the units have been set up incorrectly by DTG. With no mods installed, at night, the passengers are just pitch black outlines of characters. Unfortunately this isn't fixable via a mod and where you see it with this installed is default behaviour

Additionally, if you use my Lighting and Graphic Enhancement EP I would strongly recommend that when driving at night you follow the instructions in the manual and temporarily set the legacy emmissives to 200 through GodMode. Doing so will vastly improve your experience


Highly Recommended & designed to work with this mod

Just for clarification - what pre-existind mods need to be removed before using this one?

Avatar of JetWash

The 700 lighting fix and Class 801 lighting fix. Hope that helps.

is the 700 this one? !!!JetWash-Laika-TSW4-Class700CarriageLights-OrangePIS.pak ?

Avatar of JetWash

Yes, that’s the one. Sorry to change the format but I can imagine it could fast get out of control with a number of small mods. It makes much more sense to roll them into one.

hey, could you perhaps make the light cone from the KWG ICE 3 render when farther away? it disappears when not even 100 meters away, it really sucks!

Avatar of JetWash
JetWash 31 Dec 2023

I’ll have a look. Increasing LODs on ToDv3 trains is tricky (slash impossible) but you never know. I’ll have a look next time I get chance. Which route is that?

Avatar of Myron
Myron 31 Dec 2023

Kassel-Würzburg (KWG, as said), it's actually a TOD4 route/train, so it shouldn't be that bad I guess :)

not at the moment, and luckily the other two ICE 3s don't have the same issue, but I will let you know if I discover another too short headlight LOD :)

For me at least, Niddertalbahn TSG 628 has really short light cones. Would be nice to have it fixed, specially after that route has become usable thanks to your ini settings mod! Thank you so much!

Avatar of Myron
Myron 2 Jan 2024

well actually there is the Railbow ICE 3 but I am not sure if it's worth it as I plan on making an ICE 3 enhancement pack in the future which may or may not also include a Railbow/rainbow livery variant, where the KWG version would pick up the LOD fix from the mod aswell, I hope. we'll see.

Avatar of JetWash
JetWash 2 Jan 2024

I’ll have a look at the 628 but don’t own the Railbow ICE3 so can’t do anything on that one unfortunately.

Don't need the Railbow ICE 3 DLC anymore anyways as Nagiphaaa is working on implementing that in the next version of her ICE 3 Enhancement Pack, as she revealed. I agree, the DLC itself isn't that great/accurate. Luckily we'll have a better alternative for it sooner or later.

Do these work in TSW3 as well?

Avatar of JetWash

I'm don't think they will unfortunately although you could give it a try. If they don't just remove the .pak file.

Avatar of Dinosbacsi
Dinosbacsi 4 Jan 2024

Yeah, they don't seem to work in TSW3 sadly. Tried the BR628 headlight mod and the game crashed instantly when trying to load the BR628 :(

Big sad, would be nice to be able to see at night on the Niddertalbahn.

Hi! Perhaps it's me or my graphics configuration, but I find Glasgow Cathcart Circle Series 314 too short and weak in its headlight cone. Maybe IRL was like modelled in game, but personally I find it a little uncomfortable to drive at night compared to other same age UK units. Would appreciate your comments. Thanks a lot.

Thank you so much for pursuing my suggestion of adding it for the 72 stock, the lights seemed way too bright and unnatural so this mod really helps my immersion! :D

Hello there! Thank you for all your fantastic work. I am quite new at this, so have to ask... Is it actually impossible to make outside things visible at night when headlights are on? I still see pitch black outside in front of me e.g. in OBB4024 at night. Yes, some poles are illuminated and when headlights set to "Bright", I can see railroad 10 m in front of me, but that's it. The rest is pitch black. Is that the limitation what the mod can do? Thank you for the answer.

I’ll have another look at it when I next get chance. Remember I recommend adding a touch of Volumetric Fog when driving at night.

Avatar of Broskev
Broskev 5 Feb 2024

Yes, if there is fog, somehow the whole scenery becomes illuminated. I understand the options might be very limited...

There is one DLC folder, all mod .pak files go in there.

When I use the F125 LOD fix, it reverts CabCam improvements back to the default camera position.
