Glass Station Release

Post by Lakie » 22 Aug 2005 20:26

Hi,

Finally finished coding Purno's / Born_Acorn's Glass Station.
This is my first ever real attempt at coding a station.
So don't expect it to be perfect. :lol:

Requirements

TTDpatch 2.0.1r Alpha 22 or Higher
The Switch "newstations" set to on in ttdpatch.cfg

If either of these fail the grf will give an error.


Installation

Copy "glassstation(w).grf" to the newgrf directory
Add "newgrf/glassstation(w).grf" to newgrf(w).cfg

Please Note: (w) means only add w there if you have the windows versions


Spefication

Number Of Platforms: 1 to 4
Length Of Platforms: 2 to 7
Custom Layouts for all combinations of the above.


How To Use

Quite simple really.

1. Open The Buy Station Window
2. Click Orientation (A menu should appear)
3*. Select Glass Station
4. You should now see the glass station in the previews
5. Choose the dimentions
6. Place Station

A load more of images of it's development can be found here.


Known Issues

None! If you find any tell me!


Credits

Purno for station concept (Graphics)
Born_Acorn for the graphics (Almost all of them!)
Lakie (Me!) for coding the staton and for fixing some of the graphics

I see some errors in your screenshot (not the stations);

1. The bridge shows wrong roadtexture on the bridge approaches

2. The railway fence doesn't completely show the new graphics

I don't know how to solve 1, but 2 can be solved by reading the 'readme'/'installation guide' at dinges's site or grfcrawler, IIRC. Got something to do with the order in newgrf.cfg compared to elrails or something.

Sorry for OT,

Lakie, thank you very much, finally some of my graphical work is coded into stations :D

I do not think it suits freight trains, I have doubts for passenger ones
but it may be great for monorail
what are you looking at? it's a signature!

Why not for passengers?

I know one tram station that looks a bit like it ...

Well thanks, cause you know, I though I might use a station that obvioulsy would be for a passenger station as a freight station.

But seriously, thats the most obvious comment I've seen today, hell, lets make that this week. God, sometimes you amaze me Shadow.
Yarr, thar princess is in 'nother castle!

very nice station, and good coding Lakie :)
one question: what's that... err... how should I put it... not-so-nice concrete block doing in there?
It doesn't fit this sleek design for sure.

I'll use it for mono/mglv station for sure, maybe HSTs also.

Its where the people get on to the platform, hence why is it always in the middle. (Or as close to the middle it can get)

Yes, it is only meant to be used as a modern (post 80's) passenger station and for Mono/Maglev.

How about glass doors or, a glass porch? :-)

Also, something to join the platforms when there are more than one. Currently that concrete block opens to a wall of glass...

Didn't relise there was a station like that Hyronymus, looks pretty damn cool.
A few things, I believe it might be bugged with multiple platforms in the north-west to south-east direction (\)

And yes, it does look strange with configurations with more platforms, maybe some new graphics for that Born_Acorn?

I'm more than happy to add changes, or new tiles. Or to extend the limits. (Since I normally use 4x8 station configurations myself), It's just I would need some graphics for a 1x1(n) sized station. :)


Anyways Source as I promised.

Please note, that this was wrote / used to debug eis_os' comment in actions grfcodec (diff).
I add a subclass name incase another station had the same type id...

I add a subclass name incase another station had the same type id...
Station numbers are unique to the GRF file, so will not conflict. The only issue is having too many stations per class. Classes are not unique to a file.

It's actually incase it has the same class id (BAGS)

So that the station doesn't end put named some wierd name.
In a class with other stations.

Although I think it's unlightly it would ever be used by another grf (Or station).

But if everyone used a separate class for each station, we'll run out of station classes. At the moment they're limited to 19 classes.

It would be better if you'd add the station to another class, maybe even the DFLT class.

Yes, you do have a point.

I might need t do that, or I could just make sure any other stations I code uses the same class id.
And rename the Class Id?

I'll think about it.

i guess you could add it to one of the Generic Stations-classes. just ask Aegir 'bout the details.
