Wow, this looks awesome. I hope that you'll continue to work on this. I hope your going to make the 32bpp trains be a graphics replacement for NARS as NARS contains a good amount of 19th century locomotives and rail stock. Also you may want to make graphics for the eGRVTS Horse Carriages and early gas\steam trucks\trams. It would be nice if later on this could go into the 20th century or at least up till the 1950's
Thank you! Of course I will continue working, but I really need to learn some coding first, because just replacing the standard graphics (as I've done so far) is to limited. My hope is to make the world look more real (and depressing
) and not as "toyish" as the original TT.
My first thought was to make it run from 1830 to 1930 (As in Railroad Tycoon), but I guess it would be cool to make it run until 1950 so that you could include some early aircraft as well.
Actually, I even thought about adding horses (actually I've already modeled a horse) to some of the early steam locomotives, but I don't know if it's possible to animate them yet. It would look kinda silly if they just were frozen...
All suggestions are appreciated, it's great to see that people actually show interest in this project. My goal is to make the game change more over the years, so that you actually play the game and not only use it as a simulator after the 10 first years. New vehicles, new cargo, new industries, new town buildings etc. I'm very excited and I hope that I can present some new images soon.
