[OTTD] Old BROS Thread.

Post by Leanden » 15 Sep 2009 10:52

Welcome to the British Rail Openttd Set or BROS thread.

Coding Has Begun - The devzone can be found here.

The BROS, which is a set managed by the community, aims to provide a complete set of train graphics of trains that have been used in the United Kingdom (This does not include Ireland). We aim to draw every single locomotive (steam/diesel/electric), every single multiple unit (electric or diesel), every single carriage and wagon as well as almost every train livery that has ever existed!

Development of this set changes quickly, Most Multiple Units are drawn (thanks to Extspotter, Beardie, Doorslammer, Audigex and others) and attention is switching to the locomotives, Ronstar has made a start on the steam locomotives and Doorslammer keeps playing with his 37's and Deltics, but there is still a lot to get involved with!

From the Jubilee to the A4 Pacific, Pacer to Networker, the British Rail OpenTTD Set aims to be the most comprehensive UK rail set for Transport Tycoon Deluxe. Please join and help us make this aim a reality!

We are currently hosted at BROS Forums

Thanks for Reading
BROS Team

Just so that everybody is aware
  • The set is licensed under GPL v2, and this must be agreed to
  • There is, and never will be, a set leader, it is being run by the community and the majority of decisions are made via a vote
  • The new forums are open for everybody, each artist will have their own dedicated 'workspace' for them to post work and receive criticisms.

I'm curious about the relation between this and the BR set that already exists, albeit in the TTDP forum. What can this achieve that the older set can't? Will it be drawn in 32bpp perhaps? Thanks!

i think the mail difference is that this set will actually be set into life, and not just on paper as the BR-set :)

BROS has no leaders and is completely Community driven, it will also be only for Openttd, and will be released hopefully much sooner than BRSet was ever planned to be. Unfortunately i dont think there will be any 32bpp graphics yet.

Right here you go: an unofficial I-asked-nobody-and-nobody-asked-me teaser for the BR Set. DJ Nekkid did the same thing for me with HEQS, and it was a nice spur to get the thing done.

Contents: 1 x class 20 in Blue*, courtesy Dan MacK. Completely unrealistic stats, and I won't warrant the code is good, I've never done trains before. I don't know what use it is, but it goes in circles nicely.

* Yep Pikka has already done that. But hey, this one's more...blue ;)

Consider this released in the spirit of the GPL. I haven't included a license.txt so it's not technically GPL compliant. nfo is included, but this is built using planetmaker / Ammler's wonderful make system, so it's not really the source.

I know from personal experience that Dan won't mind me using his sprite, but if you want to use them, you'd better ask him yourself.

Now over to you guys...

Although I am a useless coder/drawer, if you ever need anything tested you can shove it my way :)

Apart from the test grf, Beardie recently commited Revision 0 of the BROS to the Devzone:

There's a tracking table, but that's more of a generic one - as far as I know, any train which has/does travel on the UK rail network will be accepted.

Does this topic have to do with the one in your signature?

Weird isnt it... Potentially we might get a boost if Pikkabird lets us repaint his UKRS models.

Not yet, thus the use of the word "potentially" :P
We have permission to use his UKRS wagons already.
