USA Variety Pack V2.0

Version 2 of the USA Variety Pack to increase the variety of steam locos for the American gameplay type. Many of these locos are generalisations of practices at the time and should not be confused with authentic models.

This pack is compatible with USA Variety Pack 1 savegames, as well as savegames with 6-2-0 John Stephens and 2-6-0 early mogul. It simply overwrites the content and the games will still load.

This pack contains 12 locos ranging from 1850 to 1910, and a balanced Passenger Wagon and General.
All engines contain custom soundsets.

my main problem with this mod is how some of the later locomotives have no front pilots or cowcatchers. it really bothers me.

While I love the mod, it always bugs me that a couple of the locomotives don't have front pilots or cowcatchers.

I like the Fairlie

putting variety in early stage of the game is nice to have, do like the engine with both ends driving

If you wish to repaint them feel free, as these are mostly using valilla assets... I will just say to use caution when navigating the mod folder, because it's a total mess!

This is because it was built on top of the old mod, back when I had no idea what I was doing (still don't)

good stuff! You spelled "American" wrong in the tag, just so you can get more subs. Also, any chance we could do repaints on any of these?
Stealthy Apr 1 @ 2:27am 
Understood. Thanks. And good work these, i really like them both. Helps a lot to make the early game more interesting.
SteveM4  [author] Apr 1 @ 2:26am 
If you want to you can unsub from the old one, but any games that use the old one will give you a warning that the mod has been removed.

Honestly depends if you're using an old save or not. If you unsub, just make sure you deselect the old one in the Load Game mod settings.

So when subscribing to this, can i unsubscribe from the old one or should i keep these both?
