Fife Circle Enhancement Pack (WIP)

I had no intention of buying this, but was nagged to provide some kind of improvement to support a future TT mod. This will work alongside LM's mod when it's available.

Here were have a work in progress project

  1. Swap of vegetation
  2. Swap of track, ballast. Thanks to ROB S for the donation of these textures
  3. Bag Piper removal is now done by a seperate optional pak from 28 Mar 24
  4. Merged with Edinburgh to Glasgow. **Will work for timetabling in the editor, but you can't drive there in freeroam unless I can fix some things. **
  5. Sound update to remove clicks/pops from cab engine audio 28 Mar 24
  6. Removed dependancy of SouthEastern High Speed (hopefully) from 30 Mar 24
  7. Added an extra pak file for some quick fixes for class 170 sounds. Changed internal run sound (they were some really weird motor sounds from Rivet). Increase cab audio volumes for guards buzzer and joint sound, click/pop removal from cab engine audio removed from main pack, and added to the sub pak. Balanced run sounds
  8. 31 Mar 24 - Further updates to class 170 internal audio. Thanks to Dan/GBRf66715 for supplying new authentic in-cab buzzer sounds. Another re-balance of internal audio so that there isnt such a huge differential between window open and closed volumes. I found compared to other similar trains in the game, internal audio was really quiet.
  9. 31 Mar 24 (2) Changed PIS announcement chime to a 170 version, and removed big gap between chime and start of announcements

Also requires Edinburgh - Glasgow

Will add extra foliage and some other assets where required, but its up to Rivet to add & fix scenery first. I don't want to go editing existing tiles to swap out until they provide their own fix/update
That's it for now.

Requirements

ScotRail Express: Edinburgh - Glasgow

Additional Comments

To get the most out of the pack, you need to do one of two things. Either use Jetwash's Lighting and Graphic Overhaul (https://www.trainsimcommunity.com/mods/c3-train-sim-world/c105-ini-tweaks/i3889-tsw4-lighting-graphic-enhancement-version-35) which means you don't need to do anything as this is already set up for you or, if you don't use it, you should ensure that these values are higher than 1 in your main engine.ini . I'd recommend a value of 3

foliage.LODDistanceScale=3
grass.CullDistanceScale=3

Your engine.ini file can be found in Documents\My Games\TrainSimWorld4\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

It won't work properly yet, I just did the prep. All the scenery is there but the map in the game needs fixing to show destinations.

When I install this, almost all vegetation has no textures. Am I missing something, or is it a faulty download or something?

EDIT: Turns out it wa a conflict with mjkcp's Class 801 coupler mod. The issue occured when the replacement version was installed, the variants version never caused any issues.

mjkcp fixed the issue in the newest version of the mod. It can now be used together with this one.

Do you have south eastern high-speed, as it's currently a requirement

Vegetation swap results in grey textures only in freeroam, and I have SEHS

Avatar of JustusLM

After some testing, I found out that it was a conflict with another mod, and managed to figure out which one exactly (see the edit in my initial comment). In any case, that means there is no issue with this mod, and I was indeed missing something.

That's a bit strange! I can't see how a coupler mod would stop the materials for foliage from loading.

Avatar of finnabarr

I don't have the coupler mod, and it still yields the scenery error :(

I cannot reproduce this problem. With LondonFaversham DLC it works as expected. You will have to do your own troubleshooting as just 2 of 226 downloads have a problem.

Avatar of Bescot
Bescot 22 days ago

I've now seen that the materials fail if you load the route in Free-roam. I may fix that in the future but for now avoid that.

Added the mod, thanks for removing the bag pipe noise, that was annoying. Nothing shows up for the merge yet on the map for EG but i take it you are working on this, great mod.

Thanks. Yes, more work required to get free roam working in the merged section .

Hello ! When you say route fusion, what do you mean? . Are the routes of the two complete routes combined into one?

Another thing, in the Fife Circle, the road between Linlithgow and Glasgow Queen Street does not have decoration, are you going to add it later?

Avatar of Bescot
Bescot 22 days ago

Honestly. I do not know what I'm going to do. I'd really prefer the developers to pull their finger out and fix this themselves. Until they make a decent attempt, I am done for now.

The guard buzzer sound is wrong - if I was to provide one could it be changed?

Avatar of Bescot
Bescot 21 days ago

Yes, I thought they had. The problem is they used the saloon beep instead of a buzzer in the cab and the setup shares the same sound

Thanks for this - question though about the amendments to the below:

foliage.LODDistanceScale=3
grass.CullDistanceScale=3

My engine.ini file doesnt have any setting or these parameters? am i missing something or do i add them in?

At the very bottom of the dlc list, leave a space & then copy & paste this

[SystemSettings]
foliage.LODDistanceScale=3
grass.CullDistanceScale=3

Loving the improved 170 sounds, however the tunnel & bridge reverb is louder than before.

Avatar of Bescot
Bescot 20 days ago

It is. There were no internal running sounds before. I've had to allow the external ones to be heard inside the cab. Cabs aren't as quiet irl as Rivet would like us to believe. Yes engines are, but running sounds are louder at the front that anywhere else.

Avatar of Bescot

Rich84, just revisiting this. Have tried the HST and Scotsman on this route, and they have the same reverb as the modded 170. It's much louder than other routes. The 170 driven on GOBLIN has barely audible underbridge reverb. Rivet!!

Avatar of Rich 84
Rich 84 18 days ago

I noticed that as well with the HST

Avatar of Bescot
Bescot 18 days ago

I know what's causing it, but it's something Rivet need to look at because it's route based. Their reverb volume is almost twice as loud as DTGs routes.

What's the significance of 'Merged with Edinburgh to Glasgow'?

Does that mean foliage and ballast improvements will apply on 385 routes between Edinburgh and Glasgow as well? Hoping it's a yes, pack looks fantastic.

Avatar of Bescot
Bescot 17 days ago

Well, no. Not like that. The intention is to have the Glasgow line included as part of the Fife line with a combined timetable. But. That's a longer term aspiration.
