JP+Set - JGR/JNR/JR Japanese Trains

Post by Tintinfan »

Bringing more Japan to OpenTTD!

If you've had eyes on #openttd on Twitter, scrolled through #development on the OpenTTD discord or peered at screenshots on the TT-Forums with a Japanese twist - chances are you may have spotted a Japanese train that isn't in one of the many Japanese trainsets out there. That mystery is solved...a new Japanese Trainset is being worked on!

The Trains

What trains are included, I hear you say? - The focus of the JP+Set is on DMUs & EMUs operated by JGR, JNR and JR. The trains included do overlap with JapanSet3 but there has been particular focus on real liveries, more variations, fine details and most importantly missing trains.
There are of course plenty of other trains and liveries coming along! :D

I'm looking forward to seeing this released! Any rough estimates of when we can expect a first release, or is it too early to say?

Also, since the focus of this set is DMUs and EMUs, will there be another set focused on locomotives and rolling stock? Or are there no current plans for that?

Working on a goal for you to have something by the end of the year, it's got a number of tasks to complete before a release though. That said, private play testing and feature checking has been going well. :)

JP+Set's sister set on the locomotive/carriage side is Japanese Secret Engines. A number of graphics intended for this set have been redirected over there to compliment the work Jake has done so far, so you will be seeing more there on the locomotives/rolling stock front soon as well in the future! As such, this set will continue to focus on MU's for now. Don't worry - we are secretly all working together to give you more and more Japanese trains. :wink:

Merry Christmas everyone! :)

It's been a long year for everyone, but perhaps a good year to work on NewGRFs! :D - We've been working hard to get this perfect and some trains are going under graphics review or having pantographs added so they'll work whatever the consist length...I hope you can all understand that we would like to release each train in as best a finished state as possible. Wouldn't be right if you built a 2-car 209 Series EMU and there wasn't a pantograph until it was a 3-car unit now, would it?

That said - it's Christmas and it has been a long year and we have teased everyone more than enough over the years. Therefore, I've cut out the complex trains that still need some refinement and released for you all to play with a "Christmas 2020 Preview". Please enjoy the taster for what is to come over this festive period - and look forward to more in 2020!

Finally, the trains you see in the preview are not cost balanced - and the costs are subject to change in future non-preview release versions. This can lead to warnings and unstable savegames.

So what is being worked on?
- Completing the code for exisiting trains (a list can be found in the first post, this will be the main aim for the next release)
- 115 Series liveries and 209 Series variations
- 153, 225, 227, 321, 323, 383,415, 455, 485, 489, 651, 711 719, 781, KiHa 40/48, KiHa 81/82, KiHa 181, KiHa 183 Series (and some more derivatives...it's a mammoth project so sit tight!)

For now though, merry christmas to everyone and enjoy our little present to you. :D

Hi there,

It’s my first post ever on this forum, so please forgive me for my poor english/inappropriate language.

First of all, is there any estimated time for the next release? And if the planned release is still several months or heck maybe even years away, is there any chance to get another alpha/preview/testing version?

I’ve been working on a Japan map featuring every single JR route and stations.(Currently 400+ stations with realistic train length considered in the Kanto area) And I’m definitely willing to prioritize any other routes/areas to help you with the testing. I can help with looking up for train data or images too, but will probably take quite a long time to learn the coding or drawing though.

Really appreciated your work to bring even more JR/JNR trains to the already huge collections.(But of course one can never be satisfied, which is why I’m so hyped about this project!)

Thank you for your comment. I am also very bad at English.
I think the next update will have a lot more trains! Please look forward to!
I think the next release will be possible in April.
