[OTTD] FISH....FISH FISH FISH FISH (work in progress)

Post by andythenorth »

FISH is Ships ...and this is the development thread for FISH.

>> Click here for the latest FISH release (in the release thread)

'Nightly' builds of FISH: http://mz.openttdcoop.org/bundles/fish/nightlies/

What does FISH mean? Who knows. Could be Finest Ship set, could be because it's Inland and Inshore Shipping, or perhaps it just doesn't matter; however you look at it, FISH is Ships.

Finished FISH will feature ships in fine sizes from 15tons to 1080t. I'm debuting with diesel, then I'll shovel in steam, then (maybe) we'll see about sail.

There is literally no point in submitting suggestions or bug reports at this point, I will simply ignore them :twisted: .
However when the time is right, let the suggestions begin ;)

cheers,

Andy

You have indeed taken a different approach to graphics. The detail in those are stunning, especially the large and medium Coaster. I mean, wow :shock:

Isn't that what ships look like?! Don't you remember the huge green and red box in Titanic? :wink:

Ah. It sounded like Xander were the only one having problems. I'm on my iPod now, so I couldn't test it myself.

Andy - from the names alone this set surely raises expectations.
Why - it may be the best ship-set out there with some suitable sprites. :]

I have to agree. That is an unusual approach. But it sure compresses well.
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.

I'd say you've taken an unusual approach to the whole process of making a newgrf. First the coding, then the graphics? Never have seen it that way before... ;)

I hope you're only taking a creative break from drawing FIRS industries, and not stopping completely - it'd be a shame to leave it half finished, in my opinion ;)

<Lakie> Well, they do the same thing but the code is different.

Having knocked through 1.5 sets so far in the last 12 months, I think it's the better way. I care more about game balance than eye candy. If graphics are drawn with no thought to game balance, the result is wasted sprites, or a clunky set.

Drawing takes *way* longer than coding and is way more painful, so I figured I'd try this one for gameplay before I touch a single pixel :)

Nah, it's just a break, FooBar is away, I'm playing FIRS test games, I need better ships to carry FIRS cargos ;) Particularly engineering supplies, which needs relatively low capacity boats.

Hah, now I get it. The name stands for FIRS Intermission Ship Set, doesn't it?
Just kidding :lol:

But of course, that is not the case, isn't it?

Ho...look... peterp can paste urls!

Edit: andithenorth is not a beginner. He is very well aware of both of your links. If he did not send it there, THERE MUST BE A REASON.
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.
