Swedish Houses is a town replacement set for TTDPatch and OpenTTD for temperate, arctic and tropic climates. The goal of this set is to replace all original TTD buildings and add extra ones with buildings found in Sweden. This beta version has only a few essential buildings, future versions will include a lot more.
Version 1.1 requirements
OpenTTD 1.0 or newer
TTDPatch nightly r2313 or newer
If your OpenTTD or TTDPatch version is too old Swedish Houses will disable itself.
The set features:
* support for new industry sets (food acceptance in temperate, gas stations accepts fuel oil/petrol hotels and stadiums accept and produce tourist)
* road sensitive graphics for some buildings.
* support for both Swedish and English languages.
Parameter 1: disable original TTD houses:
0 - only Swedish Houses (default)
1 - TTD-houses and Swedish Houses
Parameter 2: Roadside trees:
0 - enable Swedish Houses set roadside trees (default)
1 - disable Swedish Houses set roadside trees
Parameter 3: Flags
0 - Swedish flags (default)
1 - no flags
The drawing is done by Irwe (me) but I could need some help from more experienced artist if someone's interested. The coding is done by as but he could probably need some help since my coding skills are none.

Below are some sample shoots of the set.
Sorry for being unactive again for a long time without any information or progress.
I have to be honest. I dont have time anymore to continue this set for various reasons. My personal life is taking to much time and I find it hard to get back into drawing sprites for this set. But I dont want to just leave this set to slowly die so if anyone is willing to continue this set they have my full support. Back in the day I only did the drawing part of the set and the coding was done by others (mainly as) so I have no knowledge about the coding aspect. I will upload a winrar file including all the sprites and some unfinished stuff that never got into the set. Feel free to continue the set or use the sprites for other projects!
Thanks for a wonderfull time here in this community and dont worry I wont leave for good. I'll lurk around checking the forums from time to time (I also still play OpenTTD sometimes when I'm bored).

That depends upon what you like more and what the house should look like: a lush green resort house with golf court style grass or a house with a more natural garden. Then it would probably suffice to just add maybe a few plants growing and a fence.Irwe wrote:Just a little question, when drawing a house without pavement (non central house) should I draw the grass by hand (like the arctic building) or let the ground be transperent to fit both temperate and arctic climate?
Then maybe it's best to let it be transperent and put some gardens and fences and so on.planetmaker wrote:That depends upon what you like more and what the house should look like: a lush green resort house with golf court style grass or a house with a more natural garden.

I actually had a set like this in mind some time ago, and even started drawing a house...but stopped due to lack of spare time
Good luck anyway, and I hope you will be able to finish this. I will be following this thread!
SAC made a great looking IKEA sprite sometime ago but I havn't decided yet if this set will include an IKEA.el koeno wrote:Will we get an IKEA to fill these houses?
Well right now my ideas are the red cottages, Stockholm town hall (1 per town limit), more cottages (different colours and layouts), maybe the "fiskekyrkan" from Göteborg, some shops and offices based on the stone houses you find in Vasastan Göteborg, more modern shops and offices, more flats also based on Göteborg, some Swedish churches and maybe Ullevi stadium from Göteborg.el koeno wrote:On-topic: Looks good, but I wouldn't want to see an entire town made up of red cottages. What other types of houses do you have in mind?
I'm trying to get 1 house done per day now when I'm unemployed and just sitting home while my girlfriend works and for now I wont make a new post for every building I make but just for the show here are the buildings.

Also, if we're to be Swedish, want me to send you some examples of houses built here about 90-100 years ago? Northern Stockholm city
Yea I've been thinking about them to. I have A LOT of buildings planned to draw but it will take time to draw them all by myself.Chrill wrote:Oh yes. Oh yes. May I "demand" Globen and Turning Torso? Looking really nice, sir.
Sure I need all the inspiration I can get, thanks!Chrill wrote:Also, if we're to be Swedish, want me to send you some examples of houses built here about 90-100 years ago? Northern Stockholm city
I did start drawing Turning Torso once, the resulting sprite is still only two curves...Chrill wrote:Oh yes. Oh yes. May I "demand" Globen and Turning Torso?
But it's an impressive building which would be nice to have.
But will be a pain in the ass to drawAndersI wrote:I did start drawing Turning Torso once, the resulting sprite is still only two curves...Chrill wrote:Oh yes. Oh yes. May I "demand" Globen and Turning Torso?

I just draw every building by hand in paint, I didn't know any other way to draw TTD sprites. Is there any easier way to draw sprites?Hyronymus wrote:Big IF but if there's a 3D model you could use that, much like 3D models are used for other sets.
You can always scale a vector 3D model down to this size and touch the details to get it right. But you have to have the 3D model in the first place... it's not necessarily the better method.Irwe wrote:I just draw every building by hand in paint, I didn't know any other way to draw TTD sprites.

Btw, you could in principle draw in the used palette right away. I took the apartment building and forced it onto the TTD(win) palette: I guess the difference is not big (I don't see any); but you might want to use a programme which can handle palettes right away
I do have Photoshop CS3 if that program can handle palettes but I'm a noob at Photoshop so it would take some time to learn it.planetmaker wrote:but you might want to use a programme which can handle palettes right away
