Chip,
didn't think that the U.P. set needed anything but these updates have improved them. Thanks a bunch.

I was able to download the updates for the SD-40's and the GP-38's, but not the "http://dekosoft.com/...s/common15.exe" common files. It would appear that Dekosoft has a bad url link since I have never seen an executable files as a part of a link address, but that is what you get when you click on the line to download the common 1.5 version files.

I hope they get this corrected.

We've been having server issues today but the installer should be available now.

hey chip, just wondering, are updatiing all your super set packs to this improved model? I know the bn pack wont need it since it was the first set to have this model, but everything before it are you working on. Im not trying to rush you at all, just was curious. I love how that up pack looks now, thanks so much!!

Yes, the current plan is to update the Super Sets across the board, though the progress is moving slowly. (Note that the latest UP updates are only betas -- the official 2.0 update isn't finished.) There will be some reorganization, too -- particularly, the CSX set is going to be broken up into more logical groupings of early and late paint schemes.

Will any changes be made to the sounds? The complaint that I have with the sounds for the units is that when in idle it doesn't sound like the 645 engine in idle. The pitch seems to be higher than what the 645 sound would be. The other waves for the engine sounds are really good. wink.gif

Honestly, to me the sounds do sound more like that of a jet engine... laugh.gif

Got yet to see a 645 sound set that sounds like THAT! laugh.gif

(Of course that is not meant as offence in your direction, just as a statement. I know that putting together sounds for MSTS is a rather tedious task and very much depends on the samples that are available.)

PS.: Actually, I really do not know of ANY payware/freeware addon which has prototypical 645 sounds tongue.gif

PPS.: Sadly, the closest one came to a good 645 soundset was the SD40-2 sound in Trainz... blush.gif

No sound update planned for the next release, but looking for possible resources.

Maybe not with the next release for sounds but at least you're on top of it and that's what matters. wink.gif. I'm sure there are folks out there that will gladly help in giving you very close to authentic sounds for your locos. wink.gif

Any chance of a cople of other models to go with the UP Set? I'd be willing to pay for more. Here's a couple of suggestions.

UP SD50
UP SD60
UP SD60M

Thanks

Richard

Have you tryed Ron Furto's (645) SD40 sounds in the TS library, I think you will like them; as well as his GP7(567) sounds. Check them out!
