Über dieses Produkt

Der Acela Express befördert Nordamerika`s berühmten Amtrak Hochgeschwindigkeitszug von Washington DC nach New York City. Der Acela Express, der jetzt für Train Simulator erhältlich ist, ist sehr detailliert und enthält alle berühmten Besonderheiten der echten Acela, wie zum Beispiel die Neigetechnik, die es den Zug ermöglicht mit hoher Geschwindigkeit durch Kurven zu fahren.

Der Acela Express ist der einzige Zug Nordamerikas, der die vom Verkehrsministerium bestimmte Minimumgeschwindigkeit von 125 Stundenmeilen überschreitet. Die Acela wurde speziell für die Northeast Corridor gebaut, um durch belebte Städte, wie Washington DC, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia und New York City, zu fahren. Dieser Zug kann bis zu 150 Stundenmeilen erreichen, aber ist für einen Großteil der Northeast Corridor Strecke auf niedrigere Geschwindigkeiten beschränkt. Jeder Acela Express Zug besteht aus Erste Klasse- und Business Personenwagen , sowie zwei Triebwagen, die durch eine 11.000-Volt-Hochspannungsleitung betrieben werden.
Die Acela Triebköpfe erzeugen 6.000 PS und mit einem Treibkopf an jedem Ende des Zuges können hohe Geschwindigkeiten erreicht und über weite Entfernungen aufrecht erhalten werden. Der integrierte Kippmechanismus ermöglicht es mit hohen Geschwindigkeiten durch Kurven zu fahren. Die Acela hat einige Designmerkmale mit dem französischen TGV gemeinsam, jedoch verfügen die Personenwagen der Acela über kein zentrales Drehgestell und sind außerdem schwerer aufgrund der Sicherheitsbestimmungen der Federal Rail Administration.

BITTE BEACHTEN SIE: Das Acela Express Add-On erfordert das Northeast Corridor Erweiterungspack (separat erhältlich), um funktionsfähig zu sein.

I bought the Acela back in 2013, and boy am I impressed with the updates they have made. The Acela now has the current Acela paint scheme, so if you want the previous version, hopefully you have a backup of it somewhere.

I'll point out main things they have fixed:

Horn - Big issue for me. It looped correctly in the cab, but did not loop at all in the exterior mode. They also changed the horn, makes it sounds much better.

X360 Controller issues - For me, I could never leave the cab in the Acela using the controller. You could use the functions fine, but as soon as you wanted to transition from Cab view to outside view, it wouldn't change. This also happens with a few locomotives I have now. Everything is fixed now, works great on a controller.

Features they added:

New Headlights - Headlights look much better now, they have a really nice Lens flare that appears when you are in front of the locomotive. Real nice touch.

Pantograph Sparks - This may seem like nothing, but this feature is really cool. As you drive along, you can see spark reflections on the pantograph. It also emits a big area of blue light around it, and looks really nice. I personally think it emits too much light, but is still a nice feature.

They probably have fixed and added more features with this loco, but I'm really liking the update for the Acela. It once made a beautiful model suffer from terrible scripting, to an absolute model with great scripting and features. The only thing I can think of to add to this model would be an interior for the coaches, would be a fantastic addition.

Had this since TS2012, but it's been changed/revamped/retrofitted/whatever word you want to use since then. Some changes good, some not-so.

From what I've observed overall, the unit is very easy to control as one'd expect, being a MU. Visual and modeling details have always been a personal high point, with the animation being good, too. Some touches are here and there like the panto sparks, updated livery, and the lens flare as another user has noted. I wouldn't be absolutely sure but I think the specs have been redone since then too, like how in the past it'd top out at 147 MPH in the sim, when the real one, as also noted in promotional material of this DLC here and there, can go up to 162 or 165. Seems to speed up a lot faster so it can be assumed they gave it a bit more juice.

Other bugs have been fixed when you load a scenario partway through that had to do with the Cruise Control, displays, and other cosmetic functions. The "Acela Express" scenario was also optimized a while ago, although the last time I played it, it still suffered here and there from an AI train desyncing and derailing offscreen, the player being held up at Newark by a signal and thus not be able to satisfy the timetable, or be unable to finish the scenario at all with a set of points always set against you.

If you also own or plan to own the New York to New Haven DLC, there are a few more Career Scenarios available using the Acela there too, although the Achievements seem to be broken at the time I write this.


Now, some of what prevents this DLC from being more perfect (in my eyes, anyway):
  • Cruise Control is broken; it either takes longer to kick in than from before this DLC was reworked, or it doesn't at all—the Class 390 is a better example of how it should function.
  • Pantographs can be a bit wonky; by default, the front pantographs are used relative to the direction being traveled, when it should be the rear ones. The cab switch to choose a pantograph doesn't appear to be animated either, and whatever I do seems to cause an indefinite loop of raising and lowering the "unused" pantograph.
  • Carriages leave a lot to be desired; while I did note the modeling was nice, inconsistencies from the real thing include the lack of the Business Class "End" Car (it's like the First Class Car, with two doors rather than four), how the carriages are generally flipped as opposed to how they should be in consists (ex. the First Class Car's—and wouldbe Business Class End Car's—doors should be adjacent to the Power Car, the two middle Business Class Cars, seat-wise, should face away from each other, and the Cafe Car should also be flipped relative to how it currently is (to give an idea, the windows, on the side with less windows, should be closer to the closest Power Car)).
  • In addition to above, they lack a passenger view.
  • The horn does not automatically turn on the bell like it does on the ACS64 (as well as how it did in the original Kuju/MS TS).
  • Whatever updates done to the DLC also messed with the lights; the marker lights (the red ones) on the opposite power car don't always turn on when the front ones are switched on, and the ditch lights can either be on or off; they don't flash or alternate like previously (at least for me).
  • I probably don't even need to mention the sounds, save for the horn and bell really (though, this is only minor personally).

Otherwise, it's a must-have if you're going to drive on either of the Northeast Corridor Route DLCs, especially when you consider the workshop scenarios available here for them. Too if you just like fast trains like I do.

Love the train, and you can take it on a number of tracks, just so long as they support other high-speed trains like the ICE-3 or Class 395.

I would have liked this Train if it had the right sounds. Dovetail games is not putting the right amount of effort in placing the right amount of detail into making the Acela express sound realistic. Now, I don't want to drive that train unless it has the proper sounds.(+ an interior view as the Acela is one of your promotional trains for the game, you may as well put it up to scratch). Could we see these changes ASAP!!
