Please place this mod above any Sound and Traffic mods in Load Order.
This mod must be placed above any other third party mods that affect the trains, except for my own addons and graphic mods that change the skins or appearance of trains. if you want the skins I created to be displayed in the game. DO NOT put real companies and logos packs above my mod.
I recommend using this mod with mod Realistic Vehicle Lights by Frkn64 (this mod need higher priority than improved trains)
The Mod is not compatible with other Train mods (Except for mods for which compatibility addons exist)!
The mod does not support versions of game older than (1.39.2x).
For this mod not recommended increase setting “g_traffic” higher than value 1.0 or possible bugs and drawdowns FPS
