Comprar Train Simulator: NKP S-2 Class 'Berkshire' Loco Add-On

 

Acerca de este contenido

The fantastic S-2 Class ‘Berkshire’ is a wonderful US steam locomotive and now available for Train Simulator in two preserved representations of these stunning models.

The New York, Chicago and St Louis Railroad, popularly known as the Nickel Plate Road, is famous for its powerful and beautiful Berkshire locomotives, so called due to their 2-8-4 wheel arrangement. The railroad purchased 15 S-2s from Alco in 1934 alongside many other US railroads. Between 1942 and 1949, an additional 65 units were acquired from Lima Locomotive Works.

The S-2 Class ‘Berkshire’ for Train Simulator, developed by G-Trax Simuations, represents two preserved examples of the locomotive, No. 765 operated by the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society, and No. 759, a variation based on the locomotive on display at Steamtown in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

The locomotives are also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the S-2 Class ‘Berkshire’ on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam.

POWERFUL AND FUN
this is a good locomotive, i honestly play this more than most of the other locomotives in my library, would definitly recommend this to anyone who is thinking about getting this.

What a beautiful steam locomotive! If you're a fan of American Steam you might like this one. It's a little slow though. It took me a while to get the hang of it before I could get this engine up to speed with a consis behind it. I do wish there were passenger or frieght cars to go with it and that the whistle was the same one that 765 has, but it's still good.

The NKP S-2 Berkshire is underpowered and I can't get it to hold enough steam pressure to even go at more than about 20-30 mph without having to stop and let the pressure build again. And even though I have other rolling stock, TS won't let me couple up anything to it. So all I can do is just putt down the track for a short while then stop and rebuild steam pressure. It's a very frustrating locomotive. And possibly even worse since it is so distracting is that if you open the firebox to add coal while you are in the cab, the flames textures are apparently missing a frame so it flicker flames for a few frames then a red and white warning that it can find a texture, flickers flames for a couple of seconds and then the warning it can't find a texture. This locomotive looks great but is defective. It should not be on the market as DLC unless you want to pay just to look at it. I really can't recommend this one. Get the Challenger instead. It is nice looking and actually works.

All of the Grax steam locomotives portray famous preserved passenger engines in North American excursion service.

Let me start by saying that I like the prototype locomotives and I want to like these DLC packages. Having said that, these DLC packs are older and are starting to show their age (released in summer 2013). These products have their pros and cons. Their textures look simplistic; an example would be rivets shown in two dimensions instead of three. Also, there is a distinct lack of functioning animations such as the compensating levers ( the throttle reach lever on the engineer’s side of the boiler), and the reach rod and radius rod of the valve gear (which should move when the reverse lever is adjusted). The included sounds are good enough; Clanking siderods, exhaust chuffing, steam hissing, and bell and whistle are all working. It would have been nice if a quill-able whistle would have been included (varying pitch, tone, duration, and volume according to how you pull the whistle cord).

All locomotives have working headlights and functioning back-up lights on the tenders. Class lamps are illuminated, however, they are slaved to the headlights so you cannot turn them off when the headlights are illuminated. Additionally, the colors of the class lamps cannot be changed; they are always on white (extra/unscheduled). I find both of these things to be disappointing. The GS-4 MARS light illuminates but does not operate independently of the Headlight. Cab interiors are fairly well detailed. All locomotives have working cab lights.

I have a few complaints about the visual quality of the locomotives:

1) When you are stoking the firebox of the Berkshire, a “missing texture” message flashes instead of a fire.

2) While cab windows open from the inside, when you change camera view to the outside, the windows appear to be closed, a strange glitch (present on all locomotives).

3) The engineer is placed too low in his seat and his legs are dangling through the floor of the cab (present on all locomotives).

All of these visual issues should have been addressed with a patch.

One of the best aspects about these locomotives is that they have a lot of smoke emitters to simulate the various steam and smoke exhausts (a nice touch). Other than the F.E.F. and Consolidation from Smokebox, these are by far the most glorious smoke and steam effects for any of the stock steam locomotives in the game. They are so good, in fact, it makes one wonder why they were not used for any of the other steam locomotive DLC other than the Southern Pacific Cab-Forward. I have only a few small nitpicks about these emitters:

1) The safety valves/pop valves are always on; newer model steam engine DLC (see Pennsy K4, Smokebox Consolidation, Smokebox F.E.F.), feature animated valves that are slaved to the boiler pressure so that they ‘pop off’ when boiler pressure reaches maximum and shut off again when BP falls.

2) When you open the Gtrax locomotive’s cylinder co-cks, they immediately blow out steam. They shouldn’t do this until you open the throttle (regulator).

3) The S-2 Berkshire has no steam exhaust for the stoker motor; as it is the only coal burning locomotive of the bunch, it should have had an emitter to animate this.

4) There are no emitters for the driving-wheel sanders on any of the locomotives.

The worst aspect of the Gtrax locomotives is their performance parameters. All of the Gtrax locomotives including the Southern Pacific GS-4, the Nickel Plate Road S-2, and the Spokane, Portland, and Seattle E-1 engine are underpowered; they lack tractive effort and horsepower. None of three engines will cruise at track speed with tonnage. They cannot keep up steam the way their real-world “superpower” counterparts do. This severely limits their “fun factor”. However, there are free physics upgrades for the Gtrax engines available at Railworks America.com. The best ones are by a fellow who goes by the name DtrainBNSF1. They are in the Files Library under Accessories and Tools. These mods are free and easily installed using the Train Simulator Utilities executable located in your Train Simulator Folder. These mods will improve the handling of the engines to more believable parameters, allowing you to pull trains of prototypical tonnage and lengths at track speed.

The Southern Pacific GS-4 comes in four liveries, a suprising addition that really enhances it’s value: The standard SP “Daylight” passenge scheme, the all black “warbaby” scheme, the “American Freedom Train” red, white, and blue scheme, and the BNSF employee appreciation special scheme.

All of the Gtrax engines are Quick-Drive enabled, however none of them come with scenarios or rolling stock, a disappointment.

Overall, the train simulator community needs more big, North American steam locomotives. These engines are a good start. However, they have some bugs that could easily be solved with a patch from the developer (if he chose to do so). Among these bugs, the worst is the poor performance characteristics which if not solved, render these locomotives nothing more than “eye candy”. The fact that none of the locomotives were bundled with steam-era rolling stock further limits their value. If you want these, you should wait for a sale.

Final Rating: Yellow Block: Caution, hazard ahead. You may want to wait for a sale.
