Hello, Transport Maniacs,
I am gonna update you on the decisions and progress of the Slovak Trolleybus Set. I want to make it a little bit faster than buses, but I am really lazy. Sorry for that. Anyway, opposed to the Slovak Bus Set, there is better planning, a better understanding of the NML itself and it feels more natural to me, than ever.
Slovak Trolleybus Set B.1.00.01 is planned to be released in December 2021. But there should be a small update to the Slovak Bus Set at the end of March, but maybe, I am gonna delay that one, and gonna push the Slovak Trolleybus Set a bit sooner. Who knows. My main problem is with included roads, which apparently only I want, so I am considering, that I will switch them off for the first BETA release and we would be pretty much good to go. (I hate doing bridge surfaces.)
I've said it before, I am slowly adding support for Andrews Night Base GFX, so you have the option to play with my set in the night. Anyway, this feature is not precisely promised, and not everywhere. This means if I reach the release date and NightGFX won't be done, there won't be delays to the release, as this is BETA and it will be included later.
Enhanced Graphics Mode. Look, I don't like shiny 32-bit graphics, so there is a thing I've talked about on Discord with other players. If they like 4x ZOOM Level 8 bit, and apparently not everyone is keen to have it. So there is no point to do this, but I would love to, but I am not gonna say it will be there. This is something, that may be added later, or so. And I like 4x ZOOM in PKP Set, but I hate the fact it is not everywhere, so I want to avoid this behavior in the "get-and-go" Slovak Trolleybus Set. So, I've decided if I am ever going to add eGFX, it will be switchable by parameter. And yeah, it will be called eGFX
So let's talk more about parameters, right?
Because there is more to be set. Roads, obviously. I've written that my roads will be switchable on/off, and this remains true, but there is one more thing.
Liveries. Unlike buses, trolleybuses currently have the Liveries parameter active. That means, there may be more liveries activated, or there can be only basic liveires.
What does that mean?
Well, if you get this NewGRF, it will be set to Basic+Slovak
liveries. By towns. And that is it.
But you can choose to use only basic liveries, like there will be CC, CC2, and some liveries that were used so often it is practically basic.
But you can toggle on commercial liveries, that will add to your game liveries like TESCO and some other companies. And vehicles with these liveries will have the advantage of smaller running costs, as a simulation of someone else paying for the livery.
I hope I've said everything, what I wanted for now.
