bridge gfx newgrf feature request

Post by thgergo » 07 Feb 2008 20:49

Now its possible to alter the bridges any way I want, change the sprite order, change the names, speed, length, except I couldnt make a solution to replace the graphic in the bridge building dialog. Yes, its possible to swap the sprites through Action A, but having different gfx for each cantilever bridge is seems to be impossible. So, will the OTTD/ttdpatch developers provide a newgrf feature to change the sprite, what is displayed on the bridge purchase dialog? (For example add an extra properity for bridges, let say bridge properity 13 should be a spritenumber, the next unused number, which points to a sprite what should be displayed on the purchase dialog)
Also, will be extending the number of maximum bridges someday with newgrf? I`d be happy to include more shiny bridges for my bridgeset, (a wooden bridge for example).

I doubt I'm going to touch bridges any further; much more than the current strength wants 1/2/3 support, and I don't want to think about the work that would be. I also don't want to conflict with newroutes. Maybe if Lakie or Oskar show up and comment on what would and wouldn't conflict with newroutes, but definitely not before then.
To get a good answer, ask a Smart Question. Similarly, if you want a bug fixed, write a Useful Bug Report. No TTDPatch crashlog? Then follow directions.

Why, is the NewRoutes project still alive? Nothing has been posted around here for ages...

As I don't spend much time for TTDPatch I doubt there will be any progress... Note it's possible to write own sprite layouts, but TTD does recoloring... (And this means most topics are found by accident... )

Expanding the number of bridges is possible in Open. There just need to be sure it would not affect TTDP.
Plus, maybe a better mechanism should be put in place, since there will need to be some substitute/override pattern.

As for the sprite stuff, maybe there is a better solution than Action 05
Action 05 could be interesting to play with. Talking about purchase icon, right now...
Action 1/2/3 is something a bit big to work on, not really a priority for now.
Not that it does not mean it will never be done, just .. not now :)
If you are not ready to work a bit for your ideas, it means they don't count much for you.
OpenTTD and Realism? Well... Here are a few thoughs on the matter.

I see... any chance we can ever see NewRoutes on OTTD?
