What is included?

New sky and sunlight colours. White sunlight at mid-day warms to an orange glow at sunset.

Realistic dark nights with subtle moonlight

Accurate sun angle and sunrise/sunset times depending on season (for the south of the United Kingdom)

New cloud visuals

Vastly improved mist which blends into the surrounding environment and is no longer unnaturally blue

Fog can now be used at night/dawn/dusk

A wide range of new weather patterns, many of which are dynamic and change within a scenario

Random weather option

Thunder and lightning weather patterns*

Improved rain and snow visuals

Rain and thunder audio

New weather compatible with Quick Drive

New 'Adaptive Bloom' shader to increase brightness, especially at night

Glass now appears more transparent at night as per reality - allowing train interiors to be seen more clearly from outside

A prototypical 50 minute scenario for the AP MML: London to Bedford Enhancement Pack which shows off the new thunderstorm and fork lightning functionality**

* Fork lightning is only visible in the included scenario and any scenarios we may produce that feature it. It can not be applied to your own scenarios. However, thunderstorms with just flashes of sheet lightning can be applied to your own scenarios.

** Due to a recent update to Train Simulator Classic, the weather in this scenario now works unreliably. Sometimes you will see the thunderstorms as intended, sometimes they will look broken with fork lightning permanently in the sky. This scenario is therefore provided on a 'no support' basis in case it works for you.

A trailer for this pack can be viewed below:

We recommend you take a look at the manual below to find out in more detail exactly what is featured in this pack and how you can apply these new weather patterns to your existing scenarios.
