You and the others going to give me a swell head with all the compliments.

So lets count sheep.

Starting to learn a lot of new ideas in coding the objects .. today I started re-coding and changing the graphics with the farm animals.

They all be animated when finish.

So far I done the sheep.

I removed many of the previous sheep objects and replaced with 3 animated ones.

There are 3 new sheep files ..
* The first one sheep to be placed in the paddocks .. there 4 different size flocks (the 1st and last in the image of the sheep being mustered are from this set)
* The 2nd one has sheep being mustered and last two suppose to be sheep with baby lambs. (These can be seen in image)
* 3rd .. sheep don't muster by them selves need farm hands on horses and their dogs. (These are each side of the main flock)

Made some animated cattle and horses to see how they look.

Also made a separate people on horses with their dogs and these can he used for heading the cattle and horses like in the image.

But wondering do we really need these to be animated .. they don't go any where .. they just move a little in the tile they on?

Also wondering if to much is animated it might slow the game down for those who not have a powerful computer.

You can give it a try and let me know what think about the animals being animated?

I shall try more tomorrow.

as mentioned previous page

"I can now code my object sets to do something similar to what ISR/DWE Object sets allow .. where you keep clicking on same tile the objects changes.

Object pieces have different graphics when you place them multiple times on the same spot. They did this to reduce the number of IDs. So I be able to reduce the number of IDs as well.

I done this to some of the Truck Terminals plus added a new one. Each had 9 different pieces for each building type.
This is the new one showing the 9 different pieces

Here the updated AuzxObjectsAddOns.

Been a lot of changes with the Truck Terminals.

The white one I cut the 2x1 tiles in half and they now part of the multi times set. Changed the graphics of the office buildings .. the overlap pieces still available.

Also another white one a little different to the other.
Warehouse 9 tiles.png
Warehouse 9 tiles.png (35.66 KiB) Viewed 679 times
These multi times where you can cycle through the different graphics has 9 different pieces to each of the truck terminals.

There are 4 sets and each has 2 different terminals.

Over the weekend see what else I can change.

See this months screenshot is called BEACHES .. guess that a good excuse for me to do more to that object set. :roll:

I was curious if planes might have entered the building to load like trucks and trains do at some locations.

Question for everyone?

The idea of the multi - select of objects sounded like a great idea .. but now having second thoughts.

Before you could see the images of what you wanted as they was separate and each had its own image so it was easy to plan what to make.

The Multi Select idea it had 9 images and can only see one .. the other 8 you not know what they are till you keep clicking. (It was ok for me as I knew what was there).

Seriously thinking changing back to the old style where we can see all the image .. will use more IDs, bt I think it worth it.

Whatcha think?

I like the multi-select, but I think it would be helpful if you had some organized online documentation that would explain things and give examples of what you can build. That might be a side project that somebody could help develop.

If I included a document with images of what available .. wonder who many would actually look at it. Just like the readme.txt and changelog.txt .. does people always read those?

Before I do more to those truck terminals or any other objects, will ponder on some ideas and see if can be improved.

In the mean time ..

I been On The Buses.
On The Buses.png
On The Buses.png (38.52 KiB) Viewed 542 times
After doing those in the image got me thinking .. these bus parking areas don't have to be same at the Bus Stations in game. I see if I can improve the graphics further so they can be joined together like in image and the path for buses be connecting.

Probably remove the walk way between the buses that goes to the lights.

We shall see.

The coding I using is thanks to Pyoro who gave it me many years ago to make the Car Parks.

When I put the bus image in last post .. gave me a idea .. as mentioned I don't need the bus bays to be the same as the Bus Stations in game.

Game up with this idea.

People do read them, as long as they are aware that they exist. The biggest issue is that people aren't aware, mostly because NewGRF developers don't do the extra work necessary. Ideally a copy should be included with the download in addition to an online version being available. The first topic in a forum post should also make these available. And in the in-game content download system one should utilize the service to include links to them.

How would this idea do for the purchase menu of Truck Terminals?

EDIT AGAIN:

I found the error I made with displaying all 4 views.
It displays 6 or the 9 items.

I did the new multi-select menu for the 4 sets of Truck Terminals.

In the Object Select Menu .. each Purchase View will display at least 6 images of what is available. (Like shown a few posts back).

Writing at bottom of Menu will tell you how many objects are in each View. (All these 4 have 9 items).

Sets 5 and 6 have these objects:

This upload also have new Bus Bays as shown in image a few posts back.

Please be warned .. due to the changes this upload might damage a saved game.

Here's AuzObjectsAddOns. (I will not add or change anything else in this set for at least a week).

Hi Garry,

maybe I've missed something, but I tried playing around with the latest versions of your objects set, and noticed an error with Auz Industry Objects. Several of the objects under Auz: Industrial Buildings. Most of them turn into mine shafts / mine tracks (see screenshot).

Maybe I didn't explain myself well enough :) I started a new scenario with only the new graphics set, and when I try to build certain of the industry buildings, they turn up as mine shafts / tracks / etc.
