No, it's not possible. But I'll provide some overlapping eyecandy NewObjects, when I come to it.

For this ask help to Quast65, he knows really well how to do overlapping tiles :wink:

A nice touch would be to have anphibious vehicles.. I think, there are those "Ducks" vehicles in the USA?
I am working on a spreadsheet of amphibious vehicles which could be utilized with such a set.

I'll pm you on this :)
It will take some time, since I am already procrastinating too much with OTTD :lol:

But I drew some small electro boats tonight ... :roll:

accumulator boats available from 1910 with a capacity of 20~25 passengers (no freight boats yet ...)

Not much left to do until a release, now ... (though I really need to work on some paper instead :cry: )

I can clearly see in what direction this is going ...

Here you have your (fake) catenary :P

Doesn't work with pantographs though :lol:

While this works graphically flawless (no clipping for most vehicles), activating the catenary bit also puts real catenary on bridges. I doubt I can do anything about it, as well as the occasionally misplaced bridges due to me misusing catenary functionality shamelessly :twisted:

.. I like the approach of dumb "intelligent" eyecandy placement though :lol:

Edit: Do you think houses should be built along the canals?

Thank you for this road set, I can not live anymore without it !
Please include the attached proposal for the french language in your next versions.

Just for you to check if not already corrected : NewGRF name starts with a space, causing sorting mismatch.
Maybe you can include a new string parameter about the speed limit on each road type. This parametric way of customisation is a great idea each roadtype should include.

Best regards and many thanks,
Pascal.

Thank you so much! <3
I'll introduce it with the next release!

Thank you for reporting that :) Will be fixed in the next release.

About the parameter strings for the speed limit. I don't know why I haven't properly made up strings for these parameters ... :|
Will add some basic line around "speed limit of X" "Changes the speed limit of X for all vehicles."

That would be absolutely awesome, I'd love to use your sprites with this set, thank you!
(Too bad we can't have animated doors ...)

And I really like your green fences, may I steal them? :mrgreen:

Edit: Also drew a new boat:

You can sprite the water waves as the road, and the lock as catenary. Thus only the lock will overlap.

I am doing that already.
You can observe the clipping ingame if you load the grf I posted some posts above in the game and let boats run below the bridges. The tip of the boat will clip when it tries to go under the bridge.
Naturally, "catenaries" that stretch all tile long will clip much more obviously, as can be seen in the following picture:
clipping.png

I suspect then it has something to do with incorrect bounding boxes for the "catenary", as can also be seen in the above picture (no bounding box for the back and front side of the lock)

Thanks for the compliment :)

And those green fences they are made by flogeza and are used in City Object newgrf (there is canal inside, and those canals use that green fence)
If i m not mistaken they are gpl2 so that would allow you to steal them too, like i did ;)

Thanks for pointing me at the great city objects grf, I think I'll incorporate their canal type as well :)

Meanwhile I've finished snow and ice graphics:

Thanks to romazoon for letting me base the lock on their sprites :)
