À propos de ce contenu

La Southern Pacific Cab Forward est une locomotive à vapeur (brûlant du pétrole) classique datant des jours glorieux de l'ère de la vapeur américaine, et maintenant, vous pouvez conduire ce mastodonte dans le col du Donner Pass dans Train Simulator.

La ligne du Donner Pass a gagné en importance au fil du temps, grâce au développement économique de la Californie. La société gérante du Southern Pacific Railroad a alors rapidement constaté la nécessité de disposer de locomotives plus puissantes pour tracter à travers la Sierra Nevada des trains de plus en plus lourds. Les locomotives Mallet 2-8-8-2 devinrent la solution. Seulement, la présence de nombreux et longs tunnels et de blocs de neige causèrent l'apparition de nouveaux problèmes : à l'intérieur des tunnels, les cabines des locomotives étaient envahies par la fumée du foyer. Il fallait trouver une solution : placer la cabine à l'avant. La fameuse « Cab Forward » était née. Cela peut paraître simple aujourd'hui, mais cette caractéristique représentait un certain nombre de modifications techniques complexes : la chambre de combustion fut montée à l'extrémité avant de la chaudière afin d'être alimentée en pétrole via la conduite basse pression qui était rattachée au tender situé à l'arrière.

La « Cab Forward » de Train Simulator reprend les Consolidations Articulées (Articulated Consolidation) AC-10, AC-11 et AC-12. Le pack comprend deux variantes (standard et révisée), des commandes précises dans la cabine, des sons réalistes et cinq scénarios pour le col du Donner Pass .

Scénarios:


5 scénarios pour la ligne Donner Pass:

As a fan of Cab Forwards, this add-on is fantastic. Unfortunately, the whistle is a bit off for my likings, and the chuff doesn't sound like a huge steam loco would, but there are ways to make your own sounds if you dislike them. The model and textures are fairly decent, and the shaders are also well done.

I wouldn't pay $20 for it though, it's not worth $20 by itself. Wait till a steam sale comes and the price goes down, and then i'd consider buying it. Just remember, this doesn't include Donner Pass, so if you want that, you need to buy it separately.

This model is so-so. The model looks good and the whistle is alright but the engine doesn't feel powerful for its size. I have had a very hard time trying to keep the boiler pressure up and maintain speed at the same time without a significant tradeoff in one or the other. The bell is the very cheaply done audio file that G-Trax uses in their other models. For short trains on flat ground this engine is fun to drive but good luck with a moderate to long train that the real prototype was designed for.

The Southern Pacific Cab Forward DLC is what we need for Train Simulator; Big, mainline, North American steam locomotives. The Southern Pacific Railway was the only railroad to own the iconic engines and operated them primarily on their Donner Pass Route. Because of this, you may want to buy the Donner Pass DLC to get the most out of this loco.

This DLC is by Gtrax, the same conent creator that brought us the SP GS-4, NKP S-2, and S.P.& S. E1. The Cab Forward is a good DLC with many features to recommend it.

Like the older Gtrax engines, this one is a good likeness of the prototype. The textures on this DLC seem to be a little bit better resolution that on the original locomotives. One deficiency it shares with the older locomotives is the use of two-dimensional rendering of smaller rivets like those found on the boiler casing and the tender. However, the larger bolts like those on the smokebox and superheater header access hatch are fully three-dimensionally rendered with nuts (very nice attention to detail). Another nicely detailed exterior feature includes the buckeye trucks on the tender (again, nice attention to detail). In a distinct improvement, the compensating lever (throttle reach-lever on the engineer’s side) is animated and working: watch it move as you adjust the throttle (very nice). The only visual bummer for me was the fact that Gtrax still did not animate the power reverse reach-rod and radius rod for the valve gear which should move when you adjust the reverse lever.

The engine has working headlights and tender back-up lights. However, like the older Gtrax DLC, the class lights are not independently operated and only turn on with the headlight a shortcoming which I find to be disappointing. Additionally, the color of the class lights can not be changed; they are always on white (extra/unscheduled); again this is also disappointing.

Cab interior looks good and has all of the important gauges and levers working. The cab has working lights and gauge lights. All windows open and unlike the older Gtrax Locomotives that had a glitch where the windows would not appear open from the outside, that is no longer an issue on this engine. Windows have dynamic weather effects.

Like it’s predecessors, it has some of the best smoke and steam effects in the game, adding immensely to it’s immersion factor. However, like it’s predecessors, I have a few minor nitpicks with these:

1) The emitters for the injectors and feedwater pump are not aliased to the HUD and so they never shut off; they should only be on when you are using the injectors/feedwater pump.
2) The cylinder ♥♥♥♥♥ exhaust when you hit the “C” button (open cylinder ♥♥♥♥♥); they shouldn’t start to exhaust until the regulator (throttle) is opened.
3) The boiler safety valves are always on. On newer models like the Pennsy K4, they “pop-off” when maximum boiler pressure is reached and then shut off again when boiler pressure drops.

It’s sounds are good, if not great, on par with the older Gtrax locomotives. Whistle (not quillable), bell, clanking side rods, and the cross-compound air pump exhaust are all included. The best and most important of these is the exhaust; it sounds fantastic. What’s more, attention was paid to the fact that this is an articulated locomotive and so has a distinctive exhaust. A two cylindered locomotive will “chuff” four times per revolution of the driving wheels. On an articulated locomotive, there are two sets of cylinders; the front and back engines will each “chuff” four times per revolution of the drive wheels. The cool thing is that the front and back engine will get out of step with one another, causing a staccato rhythm, 8 “chuffs”. In railroad vernacular, this is called “hitting a double lick”. Gtrax got this detail down perfectly. The other U.S. articulated steam locomotive DLC, the Union Pacific Challenger and Big Boy got this part wrong; their sounds were from a simulated 2 cylindered locomotive, and a poorly produced one at that.

The locomotive has a basic and advanced operational mode. You can run it with the cab controls or the HUD. Also, you can turn the automatic fireman on or off. I prefer to run with the fireman turned off because he isn’t very good. Besides, the engines were made to be run via the HUD so running and firing is not as hard as it first sounds; you will get much better performance out of the locomotive this way.

Speaking of performance, this locomotive is far better than the older Gtrax DLC locomotives. The older models did not have enough tractive effort or boiler horsepower. They could not start a heavy train nor sustain high speed like their real-world prototypes. The Cab Forward is the polar opposite; it can start a train and keep running with it, although on Donner Pass you are going to have a difficult time keeping it moving because gradients and curvature are so severe.

This DLC comes with 5 Scenarios. It also comes with late steam-era rolling stock as well, including “Pacific Fruit Express” refrigerated box cars in Union Pacific and Southern Pacific livery, as well as Western Pacific and Southern Pacific Boxcars. There is also a Southern Pacific Caboose with interior detail. All of the rolling stock is period appropriate and nicely detailed, a real bonus for this DLC and something that should be included in ALL locomotive DLC.

This DLC is one of the best packages offered for North America and one of the best values in the game. Gtrax have really stepped up their game on this one; visual details are good, sounds and features work, and the included scenarios and rolling stock really makes this a good value and a must buy. If you like North American Steam locomotives then you need this DLC.

…If only the RSC Challenger and Big Boy had been this good…sigh

:(

Final Verdict: Green Block: All clear! You may proceed and make your purchase!

Good game, but is way overpriced. Each time I buy a new DLC, it's about the same cost as buying a brand new game. Although, I really enjoy this loco and the scenarios it provides. I regret it when I pay but I can enjoy it as long as I want after.

The cab forward is a nice add-on pack for Donner Pass, and is an overall need-to-get engine for the game. The details are amazing, and the sounds are wonderful. This engine comes with Two cab-forwards: a clean and weathered version. It also comes with 2 versions of Pacific Fruit Express cars, SP boxcars, WP boxcars, and Cabooses. Personally, i bought it for the cars, but that shouldnt be the reason why you but it.
