Hi all,

All these templates I did so far found a slight error. All the angle shapes are missing a pixel. They should be 8 pixels high and I only have them at 7.

My son picked up the problem of the test coaches and wagons was floating 1 pixel above the face of the rails instead on sitting on the rails face.

So I got some renovations to do.

I think I fixed all the errors .. at least I fixed all the ones I found.

The trains now sit on the face of the rails.

Previous set for the Newcastle Flyer I only had 6 carriages with them automatically putting the PFH Power Van on the back. Since removed that idea and PFH is now a separate carriage.

Graphics still need improving on the 45 class loco.

Any way here the files where I up to at the moment.

Been experimenting again.

See some train sets including mine do not ride the rails correctly.

Wonder now is it a train problem or a train track problem.

So I experimented with the track templates and the train templates.

And have found the tracks and trains do not align properly. Distance between rail faces on most rail system the train is usually very close to the same width as the length of the sleeper or close to it.

And guess what they don't align real well.

Have a look at these.
Track Aligning_01.png
Track Aligning_01.png (3.98 KiB) Viewed 2223 times
Train running north south directions .. the track and sleepers is 9 pixels wide and train is 8. Also I think the rail shading to the left of rail face could be removed.

Trains running at the angle do not appear to align properly with the outer track and same with the train running eat - west.

Hope when get chance in coming days to experiment with trains to fit on the tracks.

So I wondering if I adjust the train to suit the tracks will in cause problems else where in the game?

Any comments appreciated.

Man, a huge kudos and thanks to you (and all the guys you thank in the op) for your awesome job. From what I've seen this is by far the most comprehensive and detailed collection in the game. The vast numbers of trains, stations, objects and buildings is just outstanding. And that's only having excluded the industry mod, which I haven't seen yet. In fact the collection is so big that it feels even overwhelming to me, so I think I'll leave most of it until I've learnt more about the game, and I'll stick to the basics for now.

One question though: every train in the set is available from the beginning right? Or are they unlocked as time passes? Because I started a game in 1940 and their numbers are incredible.

Cheers. :bow:

Thanks for your compliment .. much appreciates by all. :D

Not every train is available in the beginning. They unlock during the game. Majority of them unlock the actual date that particular one had entered service in real. The first steam loco should enter service April 1855.

Made a 44 class loco today in the larger size.

Also been experimenting on taller carriages.
44 ClassLocos.png
44 ClassLocos.png (13.91 KiB) Viewed 2022 times
The front train, the second carriage from the left is a S-Type Coach BS 1st Class and it is 1 pixel higher then the others.

Test so far have found no problems if I increase them by 1 pixel.

They pass under bridges and seem to no different then the rest of the carriages exiting bridges and tunnels.

Just wondering do any one know of any problems that might eventuate if they was this little bit higher?

The idea of making them a bit taller so that roof of the carriages look better when stopped at stations near awnings and it allows for nicer looks of the carriage.

If you like to try for your self and let my know if you find any problems that I not found.

Cheers

Hello everyone,

At least for the time being, I am back! Between COVID, the fires, the floods, and everything inbetween, time has been slipping from my hands, but I'm now back at work with Garry on new sprites. I'm excited to get back into the swing of things!

Cheers!

Your set (as many, I even dare to say, all) disables the "vanilla" trains and thus also the Monorails and Maglevs.
The player needs to add a Maglev trainset, for example this one:
viewtopic.php?f=67&t=82345&hilit=RIMS
And then he will get the maglev tracks back with the above maglev trains.

I've handed over the source of my train sets to ASide8 as I not had time to work on these for a long time.

I also stuck in Philippines with the Covid-19 problem I can not get home till sometimes next year. Until I do get home I don't have access
to all my train books to continue working with these sets.

So welcome ASide8 to the world of Australian Trains.

Thank you very much Garry, I look forward to my new position (I suppose)! This is an opportunity I could've only dreamed of not long ago, but I guess now I'm here.

I've been working on the source code for a while, and I'll probably be releasing something in the next few weeks. We'll see, and I'll keep you all posted.

Thanks
