Improved Trains [Final]

Read the description before asking anything!
BlueOrange made a double stacker traincar, but it's no longer in the mod.
satrnv: various textures (notably the tankers, the boxcar and the bogies)
Walter: trains and traintracks.xml

This mod will alter how the game spawns trains, making them longer and with more engines. Trams have a chance of spawning with two cars, and sometimes freight trains might spawn in the city. Optional traincar reskins are included.

Recommended mods:
New train sounds - Train sound improving
Railroad Engineer - Train driving!

  • Different train spawning system. The game can spawn up to four engine trains, aswell as single engines. The longest train is about 80 cars long. (The game doesn't allow more than 100 cars on a train.)
  • Train reskins.
    • Freight engine - Union Pacific
    • Boxcar - BNSF
    • Container car 1 - Maersk
    • Container car 2 - Various railroad companies. CSX on the side.
    • Tanker car - Black metal texture

  • The trains now stop at stations like they do in GTAOnline. They also stop at new stations all around LS!

Q: I installed this mod, but now there are NO trains whatsoever in game!
A: Make sure you didn't disable them with any trainers by accident. This has also happened to me, and I have no idea why it's caused. So, sorry about that.

Q: My game always wants to download an update when I install this mod, what do I do?
A: Use OpenIV's mod folder. You can learn more on their website.

Q: I followed the instructions, but I still get normal trains in-game. What do?
A: Use OpenIV's mod folder.

Q: Can you add xy feature with scripts?
A: No. I'm not a scripter.

Final: Welcome to the "going-out-of-business" update. The mod is no longer in development.
Custom models have been taken out as they crash the game.
As a last resort, there are now new bogie textures made by satrnv.



Patch! V5.1: Possibly fixed issues with the tankercar.

V5.0: Double stackers! New textures! New tanker cars!

Changelog has been emptied. Old changelog can be found here.

The mod shouldn't conflict with any trains in missions. Do not use it online, though.

You are not allowed to reupload this mod. For y'all good people who are continously reuploading this to other mod sites and copying the description as a whole, you can be a dear and at least link back to the original.

    @More Textures Yes, if you look for his edited stations in trains1.dat, he has them named, so beginning Lumber Mill you can see last number is 2 and so all of those he named. Change them all to 1 and doors will stop flapping, it's not that many. Make backup in case of any mistake.
