Moderator: Graphics Moderators
Docklands is a NewGRF that provides some new types of roadway and tramway with support of the NotRoadTypes development patch/fork. NRT approaches the road type problem by splitting road and tramway, and allowing each tile to contain one type of roadtype, and one type of tramwaytype, out of a maximum of 15 of each category. Each road (or tram) type can have various properties, such as graphics or power supply. Please find development discussion of NRT here: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=75637
I created docklands primarily as a proof of concept for a roadtype set in general, as well as to take advantage of a desire I've long had for industrial road and tramway graphics that fit seamlessly in large industrial complexes, ports, and freight yards. The set provides both road and tramway, with and without overhead wire, with full tile graphics inspired by, and kit bashed from, FIRS, CHIPS, ARRS, and ISR.
As the set is GPL, anyone else curious about playing around with roadtypes can poke around with the sources attached to make a grf of their own, so long as they comply with GPL terms. Have fun!
