  • The donations can be done through PayPal. (you can use it without credit card, you can top-up money to your PayPal account with simple bank transfers too)
  • The processing of the donations are NOT fully automatic, so you may need to wait for a while (we try to keep that waiting time within ONE day, at afternoons and evening it will be probably within some hours, or minutes.
  • After your donation get processed, and the minimal donation limit is met, you will get an automatic E-mail on that address that you have used for sending the donation, from us (hrqstudios<at>gmail.com), so check that mailbox sometimes, and check the spam folder too, just in case. The subject of the mail will contain the alphanumeric password, which will be used for the download.
  • If you got the notification mail from us, that means your access to the download is activated.
  • If you didn't get the instructions for long time after your donation, please check your email account spam folder, Maybe it was handled as spam.
  • Follow the instructions in the mail, download the installer application, and use your E-mail address and password to access the download. (to run the install application you will need at least Java 8 to be installed)
  • If the password and email is correct but the installer still writes "access denied", try without copy-pasting these data (browsers usually copy invisible html characters, which will block the authentication), or first copy to notepad, then copy from there (it removes the invisible characters)
  • Select available optional repaints if you want (you can select multiple repaints, and you can resize the window to make the list more visible), if you have the latest base package already, you may check "Only download the selected optional content" checkbox.
  • Select your railworks.exe and wait for download and install. Don't close the program until it not writes "All downloads are done"
  • Read the manual which will be installed in ts folder/manuals/EN/ES64U Taurus electric locomotive.pdf
  • Play. (two scenarios included in pack on Hagen-Siegen route. "Free Roam: Taurus at Siegen" and "Taurus express" and two more on Munich-Augsburg, and Seebergbahn )
  • For new scenario, you need to use the blueprint set filter (the "Blue box") as usual. Select HRQ then check Taurus. The locos name starting with ES64U.




    Special thanks to Csitti and Minyó Anzelm for the nice repaints, and for Csánki Zsolt for some of the textures

    The installer program is JUST an installer. It authenticates, and downloads the files from a server, decrypts them, and copies the files to the appropriate folders in railworks. That's all not collects any information. You don't need to keep it run, just when you want to download this package, or the updated files.

    1. no, not any. It just downloads.

    2. But how would you track somebody who uploaded the loco to a Warez-Site then?

      Delete
    3. The installed game files have hidden identifiers.

  2. Another question, I don't want to get on your nerves, but:
    Why do you hide yourself behind a studioname and an E-Mail-Adress? As a customer I like to know with which person I'm dealing with, where you come from etc. I don't send a payment of at least 14 € to somewhere. I want to know which person/company stands behind a product. This has got to do with public relations, which in this case is not acceptable.

    ReplyDelete
  3. No company stands behind. A little group hobbyist are. For other products, you know who they are? Maybe you get some names, but still you know nothing about them. What is the difference? A company gives guarantee to nothing, see RSC. Do you see the angry messages of scammed persons here or on youtube? Because we don't(no censorship here or there) as they rather say instead "thanks". See the changelog, most of the changes requested by the customers, and fulfilled.
    Actually there are payware developers with a company behind them who have released something with howling flaws, but they didn't fixed any of them.

  4. Hi guys who are thinking about paying for this train, i've purchased this amazing addon, and let me tell you, this wondelful Taurus train has became the best part of the whole RW3. The functions are more realistic than you've ever imagined, the creator used real data to make this thing the most enjoyable part of the game. With this train, finally I feel I really start the engine, all the sounds and systems are working, yeah, they need to finetune some settings, there are a few small problems, but this addon gives the most enjoyable realistic train driver feeling what we fans need. Don' worry, if you pay for it, you will get what the creator(s) promise, and you can get a few more skins from rail-sim.de. This addon is amazing! Thanks HRQ guys, keep up this great work!!!

  8. Hello HRQ,
    I have a problem: when I start with the taurus, after 2,3 minutes, the dynamic brake go at 100% and I cannot report it at 0%, so the train stop.
    How can I solve this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  9. It must be either Sifa, PZB, or LZB, check those or disable them.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hello I have problem,after updating package, 1216 doesn't have cab textures,only strange yellow black squares with text: "missing texture" how to find them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You probably need to be more patient and wait for the installer to write out "All downloads are completed" as such problems indicate that you closed the application before that finished the installation.

  11. Hi HRQ

    I've got the same problem like rikoE402b. In the scenario at Augsburg to Munich with a Taurus shortly after Augsburg Haunstetterstraße the dynamic brake go at 100% and I cannot report it at 0%, so the train stops.
    But I've disables SIFA and PZB.

    What should I do ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Around that place the LZB zone starts, so probably you exceeding the LZB speed limit with more than 20 km/h, which activates braking if the AFB is not enabled. Else the AFB will make the train slow down.

  16. how can i make the n ES64U4 (1216) work in the German section of the three country corner route(shift-b doesn't connect the battery)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just uploaded a possible fix to these (probably) frame rate related problems. Now Shift-B connects the batter, and Ctrl-B disconnects it, thus preventing the rapid on/off switching problem depending on FPS.

  18. Hi,

    i cant get the 1216 up and running. Pressing shift+b or strg+b doesnt connect the battery for me, nothing is changing in the cabin.
    I am using experts control mode, downloaded the es64u4 today with all optional downloads selected using the installer dated to 2014-10-18.
    It`s a scenario from 3dZug, route is Cologne-Koblenz. I am at Cologne Hbf and my framerate is at about 38fps. I do not have any problems with other trains or the 1116. Any help please ??

    Thank you !

    1. Hi

      Did you tried the locomotive in quick drive or something like that? It seems that replacing the original locomotive with 1216 in an existing scenario causes a random bug in game, which sometimes prevents the starting. BTW you may need to press shift+b for longer time (few seconds).

  23. My ES64U4 has stopped working ! The battery will not switch on via "Shift+B". I understand that there may be an update to fix this ? If so how can I get this update ?

    1. Hi

      There is no known problem with that switch. It works. Maybe te problem is with your installation. To update/fix files, just re-run the installer like you did the first time. It will update/fix the files that are not matching with the central repository.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You need to find it, as the installer can't, that's why it asks where the game is. It's in steam\steamapps folder, which is usually in program files or program data. But you can use file search for raliworks.exe
