Class 170 Cab Texture fixes and dial light effect textures24th February 2021
Peter’s Train Simulator Modifications: Small Mod Class 170 Dashboard & Cab Revamp.
Something a friend showed me years ago when I Was messing around with the class 170 Turbostar DMU To try add lighting to the dashboard speedo and break pressure gauge.
Since then I Have never done no more in the terms of working on this type of thing but I Decided to remake the mod once again ! So Basically I Started the mod and was not happy with how the break pressure gauge looked when I Was looking at it there was parts of the old one showing through which did not look right at all ! So it came to the point where I Was sitting and thinking about it but in the end I Have decided to remake the speedo and air pressure gauge from scratch it is not totally 100% Accurate but it’s better then nothing and better then it was before !
You will find 2 versions of this mod in the zip file as well as a read me one version has the orange speedo and break pressure gauge the other mod has the green speedo and orange break pressure gauge. Also included in a separate folder is a back up for the original texture file. (PLEASE READ THE READ ME)
Other mods made with this were most button textures remade from scratch as many as were on the texture file also other mods include the AWS Sunflower being also made from scratch version of it on and a version of it off, another mod was to the original DRA Texture which was replaced in the Armstrong Powerhouse Enhancement Pack ! There is a new NRN Radio Texture which is taking from another train and modded slightly light wise and other parts modded this will be replaced by a newly drawn or a real picture when I Find the time. one more texture remake and replacement was of the interlock door textures also all buttons and interlock lights were made to look lit up where applicable.
That is everything to tell for this mod it also works with the Class 170 Armstrong Powerhouse Enhancement Pack ! Which can be found here: https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/class_168-170-171_enhancement_pack
One side note: The picture showing shows an older image of the speedo needle for the green version it now has a green speed needle on the speedo.
The new lights are nice but do you have a link for rest of the upgraded textures as seen in the picture?
if you look in game, the lights are there as shown in the picutre
Yeah that’s how it should be 😊 The picture is showing the finished product in game. There is only one picture here but you can choose between 2 dials which are the 2 styles seen irl where one has a green speedo the and orange break pressure, the other type has both orange 😊 If there is any other colours ever requested for the dial lights I’m More then willing to add them in too.
All of it is in there 😉
Anything that looks any different is the AP Class 170 EP Pack 😊
This package alone included all of the remaking of the button textures interlock textures lit up and unlit and all lights behind the button textures you can see were all done the same way by hand using adobe photoshop. All that is seen there should be in the pack as well as it should say in the read me exactly what other bit’s and pieces were retextured 😊 😊
I Hope this explains that 😊
great pack! if I was to recommend another texture issue if you are gonna do more, a class 390 cab texture upgrade on the instrument lights would be good 🙂
Which version of the Class 390 Though ? Because one of them uses real lighting by the looks of it which means more the likely child objects used to light up the dials and if they are they can be lit up brighter or more colourful but I Don’t know how as it’s done by the code file of the object.
If it is just the same as this it would not be easy but would be possible I Can’t make no promises after known how hard this one was to do but I Will have a look in to it 😊
the DTG one, re-released on the wcml south :), the instrument lighting isn’t really all that accurate and should look more like the S9BL version, would be fun to see a bit of a texturing upgrade on it in the cab! Thanks!
Okay ! So this is very early shot I Don’t plan on remaking the dial from scratch at this point as the thing is so small it will not be no easy job !!
But down below is a link that I Will ask your opinion of which version of the speedo light to keep ? I’m going to try and do the pressure gauges the way they are but don’t expect it to look very realistic I Will try though 😁Along with these 2 little mods more will be done to try bring this cab up to scratch I Hope you think this looks okay.
If you let me know which version you think looks best I Will keep that one for game. Image showcase link: https://i.ibb.co/NrWLJm4/dash-light-1.png
Version 1 & 2 look very nice! I think version 2 has much more of a colorful brightness if that makes sense which i think is good! They are looking great! In my opinion version 2 is the better looking version right now 🙂
Well there can always be 2 variants in the pack just like this one but this won’t be no easy job again like the Class 170 it’s trying to get it all right and hoping it bloody works in TS 😛
Great texture upgrade. Looks nice and fresh.
Thanks B G !! I Do plan on doing more enhancement’s to this or more little tweaks over time also to other trains that could well need this kind of attention to there dials 😃
Because I Don’t know exactly how to do or use even make child objects I Will be doing allot of them this way but I Do have a friend who done me a few fixes with lights ect in the old days which most still work to this day so they could well come back out of retirement 😋 And be uploaded here too !
Hi mate, I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this, but the file forwards me to Google drive and it comes up saying I need permission, do you know any way of fixing that?
Hi @Louis_Trains sorry about this problem ! I Have changed the link it was working fine then for some very stange reason google drive changed it to restricted !! I Have been changing it back to bloody allow anybody to use link !! And still nothing it keeps doing the same thing but it should all be fixed now 😀 As I Have uploaded a brand new link if anymore problems I’m going to change it to Alans server ! Sorry for all the trouble guy’s got before this new link I Have accepted everyone who asked for the permission this stupid google drive kept making them ask for it’s never happened on any of my links in the past.
I’m So Sorry about this guy’s !!
OMG MY FAVOURITE TRAIN THANK YOU SO MUCHHHHH!!!!!!
Although I have to request access to the google drive file… you might wanna remove that
Hi Taylors Trains Sorry !! About that it was set up as access to all but somehow google had changed it to restricted after all the things I Upload to my drive this has never happened but the one I Time I Expect it to work it does not !! Please anybody who has tried to get this already download again with my sincere apologies !!
It’s all good I’ve got it now anyway!
Great ! I Hope you enjoy this little mod even if it just make it look a little bit better it’s better then nothing ! I Have not got any night-time scenarios to try it out but id think it will work good at night time too at least it should make it look more realistic 🙂 Plus there’s the 2 versions you can choose from on this so if you want to drive for a certain company who has the green speedo then you can if you want to drive for the type that has the orange speedo and orange break pressure you also can 😛
No problem mate ! Sorry about the link all should all be fixed now it’s the first time I’ve ever had this problem with google drive ! As well as chaining the link I Have also granted the permission to all requests you can see other people managed to download it by the time google somehow changed the link..
