London Underground (LUG) Set [WIP]

Post by csuke » 16 Dec 2005 00:24

Ok this is very much in the first stages, we haven't even got a tracking table up yet, but it will be basically everything from londons underground network through the years, a small teaser is available already though

I am hoping to code this all myself, thought this might change when i find the inevitably hard bits

The tracking table will soon be up at: http://www.users.tt-forums.net/lug/

Thanks very much to orudge for providing the hosting space and url :)

I think there was one, it was originally the "LUL set topic" until some people complained its similar to a swear word. I think it was merged with the BR Set.

IIRC it was Hyronymus who 'complained'
'Complaining' is a too big word, cause I think Hyr only mentioned it.
And yes "lul" means "dick" in Dutch

Hehe, I tried to draw a London Underground train once, I'll post it as soon as I find it for you all to laugh at! :wink: Great idea though. We could ask Jim Powers to make a 'London' scenario, like his NYC scenario, with subways and space for stations. I'd play that! :D

Here's the one I tried to draw! Laugh away... Image
It looks like a completely circular train at the back, and square at the front

Remember I never finished it, so it doesn't have the red end or anything like that. It's really hard drawing a train with a circular top! :?

Maybe you should do the _ view first, its the easiest, and its size also determines the size of the rest of the views.

ok i've been playing around with some truck graphics, nothing to show yet though

the way i was planning it the passenger/mail/armoured cars will all have over-rides to go with each specific tube train

the rest of the trucks will be suited for either deep line or sub-surface work depending on the loco hauling them

@lws194: i wasn't sure whether to include your graphics yet as you said some of them were missing the middle door or something? also i'm not sure whether we've got any duplicates with the ones we've drawn so far, as i haven't had that much time to organise things yet, when i get the tracking table up we sohuld have a clearer picture

i've spent a while today completely (almost) reworking the 1995 northern stock, as i suddenly realised it looked nothing like the original, here's the final product so far:

'Complaining' is a too big word, cause I think Hyr only mentioned it.
And yes "lul" means "dick" in Dutch
Me? I can imagine I commented about it but it must've been with a smile from one ear to my other ear on my face. I shall take pictures and upload them next time :roll:.

It is I, lws 1984, great bump-er of topics. I only bump because a) I liked this project and b) am starting to rework my sprites into usable form! (i.e. including the middle door. I have been working on stuff all day (i'm sick) and hopefully can finish at least one today.

EDIT: That's odd. I could of sworn the trains had 3 doors per car per side, but it appears to be only 2 (with the exception of the A stock). Less work for me! All i have to do is some tweaking and shading.

csuke, if you are still here, do you want the Croydon trams reworked for the new trams function?

RE-EDIT: I think I'll post up the sprites I have, but I mistakenly made them all shorter. So, I'll post them in review, then later I'll post the lengthened, re-shaded, re-worked versions.

More:
The 95/96 stock had something we were toying with for the BR set, the emergency door as breakdown graphics. Also, the A/C stock is actually only for the C stock, the A stock needs two more doors.
