I think that's the "sprite limit" as in, you have too many NewGRFs installed. It is related to the amount of sprites, not NewGRFs and I've had this problem before. Try adding another vehicle set, and you should see that it will have all the wrong sprites. (I once had a high speed train made of skyscrapers!) :lol:
Could I see your GRF list perhaps?

Before OpenTTD 1.1.0 is released, we would like to have a feature complete version of this set. The most important missing part are vehicle sprites for some NewGRF cargos, which means that, for example, sand looks like coal.

Because of this pending issue, I would like to encourage anyone interested on helping with OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles (or just in drawing nice road vehicles) to check the list of missing sprites and the current sprites of the set in order to create the missing cargo sprites. And as always, feedback and suggestions are appreciated :)

I have been adapting cargo sprites from the OpenGFX+ family's rich cousin to be used in this set. In the next version I plan to include specific sprites for almost every cargo, and nice generic sprites for the rest. You can see some of the new sprites in the following screenshots :)

The scrap metal shouldn't be grey only, it should include pieces with rust and paint.

I'm not able to give it the look you want. It always ends up not looking like scrap metal at all. Feel free to give it a try :)

Try the scrap piles from FIRS scrap yard, they look good imo. :wink:

And what about making those vehicles on the flatbed truck 2nd CC so they would separate from the truck better?

i'd rather have the load random colour instead of 2nd-cc. but construction vehicles tend to not have that many different colours.
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)

I'm sorry, the sprites I posted for Engineering Supplies lead to confusion :)

The vehicles carried by the trucks have a fixed colour. That colour is always like that for Engineering Supplies, and it is green for Farm Supplies.

I like the random colour idea: right now the cargo sprites using vehicles are Engineering Supplies, Farm Supplies and Vehicles. Which colours would be appropiate for each?

I'll probably leave this feature for a future version though.

Perhaps Engineering Yellow and Grey. Farm Yellow, Red and blue.

I'd replace yellow for farms with green and furthermore don't use the same colour for both to make things easier recognisable.

Engineering can also be orange. Farm tractors are generally (here at least) only available in green, red or blue.

Fair-enough, generally Red and Blue over here I was thinking farm supplies could include other machines such as diggers which are generally yellow. Saying that I have seen a green tractor before :) .

Sure diggers are usually yellow, but user-friendliness is more important here than 100% realisticishaly. Hence the suggestion to not mix colours.

so, conclusion:
ENSP: yellow, orange - bulldozers, front loaders, cranes
FMSP: red, green, blue - tractors, harvesters

Sounds like the colours I'd expect to see, too.

I like those colours :P

The generic container sprite (used for Goods and other cargos in the flatbed) could also get random recolouring. Should it?
alluke wrote:Will those graphics also work for ECS vehicles? :bow:
Yes, Farm Supplies and Vehicles share their sprite right now. All ECS cargos (except Oil Seeds, Sulphur and Potash) should be supported already in the latest nightly of this NewGRF.

EDIT: We are also planning to include a special feature for refrigerated trucks. Cargos carried by a refrigerated truck take more time to age, and therefore you are paid better. Refrigerated trucks have less capacity than other trucks. See: http://dev.openttdcoop.org/issues/2991#note-9

Today's nightly includes new names for road vehicles (see this post by DXTR) and three parameters for enabling/disabling buses, trucks and trams. Since OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles now includes all of the strings I was aiming for, it's time for translations :D

If you are interested on helping translate OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles, please download this file: http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/ogf ... nglish.lng

You only need to rename the file to the appropiate language, and to translate the strings inside to the language you are translating. There is no need to translate string identifiers (STR_...) or lines starting with ##. I'll be doing the translation for Spanish, and we already have a translation for Russian (although it needs updating). Thanks! :)

Thank you :D

DXTR has also created a Hungarian translation. Therefore we already have Russian, Hungarian and Spanish. I'm planning on a release for this weekend. Meanwhile... keep them coming!
