I often even increase constrast in postproduction, high contrast sprites just fit the game a lot more as they seem more clear what is going on there.

If at all possible, maybe make older buildings look degraded and dull, and new buildings colorful and lively. Especially with wooden structures.
This is already the case. There are six versions of each house; Three for construction, one with a new look, one with an aged look and one for repairs. :)

I agree that the new render settings look more realistic and lively. Hopefully this will make it easier to make stuff with company colors fit in better.

Release date is is the same as with all open source projects. Definitely at infinity, perhaps earlier.
Being a retired OpenTTD developer does not mean I know what I am doing.

I've also upgrade my system, which was a big issue before.

I've spent so many days on this project, so I can guarantee you that it will be released - eventually. Hopefully sooner than later. :)

Oh, and feel free to check out the video as well. It may give you a hint on why I haven't been feeling very well this spring. The support here really means a lot to me.

Hope you are better,

Keep checking back every few months, any chance of a few screenshots for the less patient among us? :P

Hey everyone! Thank you for your support!

I've realised that I'm terrible with updates, but good news: I'm back on track again! :D

I had to make a important decision. I got many complaints that the old graphics were too "dark"... I was okay with that, because I wanted a darker feeling. But, as soon as you apply company colors, it starts looking rather weird. So I basically had to alternatives:

1) Avoid using masks and make new sprites for every color

2) Make my sprites brigther and happier

After posting my Vray buildings here, it felt that people appreciated the new happier look, so I've been re-rendering the old sprites to the new happier look.

My plan now is to release the tileset first, then the buildings, then the industries and so on. This way you don't have to wait forever and I believe I could benefit greatly from positive feedback. :)

Anyway, thanks again. It really makes my day to read your kind comments!

in theory, you can alter the recolour maps to change the company colours to some less bright/saturated look
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)

Screenshots are exceptionally good.

Dunno it if helps, but for industries, FIRS just bans some company colours because they don't look good.

Did I also see you posting at Eurobricks? Or is there another Bad Brett? ;)

Thank you! That's a really nice suggestion. I never realised you could do that.

Yeah, that's me. Proud AFOL (if you happen to have pics of the 42043, please send me a PM) ;)

Off-topic: Bad_Brett - if you're an AFOL then you should check out http://www.swebrick.se - but maybe you are already there under another name?

you know you can "subscribe" to a topic to get an email when something happens, instead of looking every day?

at the current speed, it could be years until something playable comes out. or tomorrow. who knows?

Well, I'm back again, with another update from the never-ending project. The good news is that I've learned tons of stuff and finally have a really good system for generating the sprites. This means that it will be very easy to make adjustments, so that I don't have to redo everything manually.

Things have changed quite a bit since I started the project. I wasn't happy with the colors nor the rendering settings, so the mod will look quite different when it comes out. Hope you like it! :)
