From the Scrapyard: Union Pacific Reskin for the DTG/Steam CSX C30-7

A while back, we were working on a full-fledged Union Pacific version of the C30-7. However, this was going to take a lot more time than first anticipated. On top of that, we do not have proper licensing for UP sales, so we decided to make this one a freebie. The skin DOES NOT make changes to the sounds, operations, or anatomical structure of the locomotive, so in the end, you will still have a CSX locomotive with UP paint on it. But hey, it’s free, so enjoy it!

WARNING: This requires a manual install, and it is recommended to who are considered ADVANCED USERS of TrainSimulator and know their way around a computer and the TS file system. Just make darn sure that you back up (or are able to do a file verification restore from Steam) your Steam installation before you do this, in case you mess things up and need to revert to the original. Oh, and read the installation instructions! You have been warned!

General Electric U28CG Santa Fe add-on pack

Returning for your digital railfanning pleasure is the original U30C from Virtual Rail Creations! These were released as add-ons in early 2016, but were pulled while the U30C Chessie was being reworked for sale on Steam. This is the original “unimproved” version – it is NOT sponsored nor sold by Dovetail Games (please read the EULA and disclaimer before you agree to the Terms and Conditions), and has not been through their rigorous QA program. The only changes that have been made to it are so that it does not require the VRC Conrail or the DTG Chessie U30C’s in order to run – it is a standalone download.

Santa Fe

In 1966, with the death of passenger railroading on the horizon, no locomotive maker offered a unit specifically for passenger service. At their request, General Electric adapted a freight locomotive specifically for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe railroad for passenger service. Now, VRC has recreated the U28CG in Warbonnet paint for TrainSimulator 2016.

Package Details:

  • U28CG Santa Fe passenger scheme (1966-1968)

VIRTUAL RAIL CREATIONS END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT

All VRC Products License ver. 04302018.0357

It’s big, bold, in your face, and in plain English. You need to read it because if you purchase a VRC product, you are bound by it!

Important Info:

– Our 3D models are both operationally and visually challenging on most computer systems, meaning you will need a robust computer to run them. The software has been tested on mid-range laptops, but this is by no means an optimal play experience. We recommend at least a new generation quad-core processor, 8-16GB of memory, and a GeForce 650 or higher graphics card. Even better would be running your train simulation games from an SSD drive.

As we said at first, you can try running our models on lower end systems, but if they stutter, don’t say you were not warned!

1. General Licensing

– A). THIS LICENSE IS NON-REFUNDABLE. The reason we warned on our web site and at the beginning of this EULA about making sure your computer is up to snuff is that once you purchase and download the software license, it is yours whether the software performs to your expectations or not. The reason for this is simple; software can be copied, and there are enterprising individuals that may copy the software and then demand a refund. There is no way for us to know if he has deleted his refunded copy, so we are not even going to go there in the first place.

– B). You are not buying any software from this site, you are simply buying a license to use the software on your computer system, with the appropriate core simulation or game. If we sold you the software itself, we could be giving up ownership to you, which could be bad for us and anyone who may want future improvements and updates.

– C). This license can be invalidated (that means it ain’t no good no more and you don’t have the right to use it) if you do not follow the rules as lain out in this EULA. We are not asking you to do anything hard, just simply follow a few rules that will help us to continue improving our DLC offerings and encourage future development.

– D). This is a single-user license, meaning one software license purchased can be used on one computer that has the appropriate core simulation or game installed. We are not going to call out the S.W.A.T. team if you decide you want to install it to a second computer you own in the same house, or on a laptop you own so you can take it on the go. But installing for others (defined as anyone who is not you), whether it be family, friends, or anyone else, requires that a license be purchased for each individual who will use it. Please support us by encouraging others to purchase their own licenses. We got to pay for our licenses too!

– E). You can, and are strongly encouraged to make copies of the licensed software for your own personal backup. We are not affiliated with Steam, so we cannot recover backup copies of your licensed software if you somehow lose your game, OS, or computer.

– F). This licensed software is for your personal use only, and you may not give away, sell, or redistribute any part of it to anyone else. Redistribution in any form, whether for sale or free, physical or e-media, is considered an act of piracy, will immediately invalidate your license, and may bring legal action against you. Please see section three of this EULA for information regarding repaints and reskins.

– G.) We make no warranties or guarantees, explicit or implied, that this licensed software will perform as you expect it to, that it will even perform at all, or that it will not somehow cause damage or even destroy your computer and it’s associated software. We seriously doubt anything bad is going to happen, as we have tested the software for hundreds of hours. But since all computer systems differ in composition, it is difficult to predict every performance situation. By purchasing the licensed software, you have agreed to this EULA, and Virtual Rail Creations, it’s associates, and if affiliates are held blameless if something does happen and damages occur.

– F.) This license is a product specific EULA that is an extension of the general EULA that is posted at http://vrailcreations.net. That general EULA supersedes this one, and should be considered the final authority in this matter. If changes are made to that EULA, notice of the change will be posted on the same website, and this product EULA will be changed to reflect this as soon as is practically possible.

2. Other Rights or Limits

– A). You may not decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble this model and it’s associated software.

– B). You are forbidden from inserting malicious software, which includes viruses, Trojans, malware, or heretofore unknown destructive code into our software, whether for malicious or benign purpose.

– C). No part of the models that we produce and license may be used to build, rebuild, or enhance any other model. There is no other purpose for the core models or child objects than to serve this model.

3. REPAINTS / RESKINS

– A). In the past we have offered re-skin kits of our products, and we were threatened and slandered by an individual who would not read the manual or EULA and could not figure out on their own how to use them. For this reason, we don’t offer these kits anymore, and we will not condone reskins or aid of any kind to individuals who wish to modify this product.
