BPE/NYT Horn Upgrades

This mod changes both the Acela and Metroliner Cab Car's horn and bell. Full change log below:

NYT AMTK Metroliner Cab Car:

  • Replaced bell
  • Replaced horn
  • Added doppler effect to bell

BPE AMTK Acela Express:

  • Replaced bell with a modified version of the ACS-64 E-Bell
  • Replaced only the high horn, including the internal horn

In the future I'd like extend this mod to the ACS-64, with no current plans to change out the NJT stock horns.

Installation Instructions

Simply place the .pak file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Train Sim World 3\WindowsNoEditor\TS2Prototype\Content\DLC (note: not verified to work on anything other than the Steam release of TSW3)

Not sure why the acela bell neeed to be changed when it's direct recording from the Acela. Nice to see doppler on the cab car bell though.

It sounded nothing like the real Acela. The bell sound I've mashed together from the ACS-64 is much more correct than what was present in the game. https://youtube.com/watch?v=Ak39OnmbE44&si=EnSIkaIECMiOmarE&t=15

The Acela horn was taken from a real K5LA Hybrid. Same with the Metroliner cab car which had audio taken from a real cab car. While I'll agree Dovetail did a great job on the audio on the Acela, this simply changes out the audio to be correct to the prototypes.
