Locomotive Speed Adjuster

Subscribed

Description
Adjust the maximum speed of all Locomotives, either by a fixed percentage or set all to a fixed speed.
Slower locomotives are cheaper to buy, and have lower ticket prices enabling longer routes (especially useful for cargo).

Default settings scale locomotive speed to 50% of their normal value, you can adjust the configuration values in
\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\446800\1471880075\mod.lua
You can set locomotive speed to either a fixed percentage of their default values, or set all locomotives to a fixed maximum speed, or limit all locomotives to no more than a maximum speed (but not increase speed for slower locomotives).

See also Wagon Speed Adjuster for the equivalent mod for wagons.

@SoftwareSimian Thanks for the response. :steamhappy:

@Old Soldier: There is no differentiation between locos that pull cargo vs locos that pull passengers so it's not possible to filter them differently. However, the speed/cost of a train is based on its slowest component, so if you limit the speed of your freight wagons (using the Wagon Speed Adjusted linked above) and leave your passenger cars unlimited then you will achieve your goal.

@Omron360: yes, the screenshot does illustrate an SD40-2 set to an explicit speed of 567km/h

Hm, is it correct that on the right side the SD40-2 has a top speed of 567 km/h?

Can this be applied to individual locos, or must it limit all locos across the board? I'd like to slow down my freight trains but leave my high speed passenger rail unaffected. Possible with this mod?
Nice work in any case. Well done. I never could figure out why my cargo was always giving me such trouble.

@SoftwareSimian Nevermind I got it figured out. Thanks anyway for the help, I know I wasn't very clear. Love the mod, cheers!

@flegare01: just open mod.lua with your favorite text editor, like Notepad.

@SoftwareSimian It's the part where I have to change the values that confuses me. How do I even open the mod? I opened it as text using a browser, explorer I think, but I couldn't change any values.
