Excuse me for posting repeatedly on my own thread, but not like anyone else is talking
Anyways, I started remaking the set with new templates and sprite sheets to give better positioning and prevent having 50 different templates for unique sprites, like my F40PH-2D which ended up being taller then expected, or the electrics which have tall depot/purchase list sprites and even taller running sprites with their pantographs raised.
Plus I'm trying to closely balence the set against NARS 2.5 and my own works, though there may be some things out of place in some people opinions.
While many of the things I add maybe superfluous but I do try to make my locomotives useful to some extent, like being a little better then something else, or being cheaper to purchase or run then other things available.
For example, from my knowledge the EMD Dash 2 line of Locomotives replaced basic electrical components and controls for electronics and computer chips, giving them better reliability, better traction, and better engine management, allowing for a slight decrease in fuel usage, less parts being replaced, and easier to control so less training and work needed to be done to run the dash 2 locomotives, all together saving a few pennies here and there and giving the locomotives a bit more traction. I could be totally wrong though, as I imagine computer chips can get more out of the engine for a given predictument without revving the engines too much and burning more fuel and possibly causing wheel slip and more wear on the locomotive.
Players may notice that engines better fit in with NARS 2.5 stuff regarding positioning, so my EMD E-units and F-Units and the MLW FPA-4 will better mesh with the NARS 2.5 passenger cars.
Mind you, locomotives smaller then 8/8 size (The maximum safe size at 32x16px) like 7/8 (28px) or 6/8 (24px) will look weird when flipped in the depot for now. Once I can figure out how to enable flipping properly like NARS 2.5 engines can (without having gaps or other weird issues), ill make sure to fix the problem but until then I'd advise people from flipping small locomotives in the depot.
ALSO!! Players can download NARS ADD-ON SET via the Ingame content downloader aka BANANA's, for now you can find development versions listed as "NARS ADD-ON SET - INDEV"
I'll also try to remember to update the first post here with the updated grf/tar files and make sure the Vehicle list picture in the first post is updated with each version.
I think thats all for now and I hope everyone has a great day and enjoy the NARS ADD-ON SET >^w^<
