The MY/MX are indeed some very nice looking locomotives! 8) :D

It's very interesting to see the voxel model, and how it turns out in the game. I think the shape and shading are very good.
I don't know if the red color is too bright, and it will only be possible to see, when a few wagons are attached to the locomotive :wink: :wink:

0.8.0 now includes the Class MR, a cost rebalance to match RUKTS, and a new naming scheme.

Next up will most likely be the Copenhagen S-Tog trains, although I've had my eye on adding some coaches to give the locomotives something to haul...

The MR DMU is a great addition for the branch lines and regional services!

I have noticed a few extra red pixels on the white/red version. It happens in the rear end, when going in the / direction.

On the gray/blue version you sort of open a pandora box, by adding a green color at the doors. Originally the gray/blue design had green stripes at the doors, but later this changed to red. I don't remember exactly when this change happened, but maybe around 2011? However the process from green to red was quite random, and even the same trainset could have both green and red doors. And even today you can still spot a few green doors.

My point is that you could make both the green and red doors for all the trains, but this is much work for a small detail. It might be better to focus on adding more trains first, and then maybe this detail later...

Regarding the MR train, it actually consists of a MR unit and a MRD unit. There are some small differences with the windows and the doors. The MRD has only one window before the first door, which is a bit wider as the others. Later the rear door has been closed. Again this is rather small details!

Please ignore my comments about the MR train, because these details are not worth implementing! :roll:

It's better to prioritize adding other trains, and the S-trains would be very cool! You could start with the 2nd and 4th generation, as the 3rd were only built in a limited number.

Adding some B and Bn+Bns coaches would really improve the gameplay for the 1970-2000 period. Later the B+ABs would fill a gap as well, along with the ME, EA and the brand new EB.
I look forward to see how you will implement the push-pull trains, because you have added many nice features already! :lol:

Thanks for the great set! Been having a lot of fun with it over the past few days, reminds me of home seeing rubbernoses running around my OpenTTD map as a dane living abroad :)

I would agree with Jimbow if you're looking to add wagons to the set, start with the Bn and Bns (later ABns) driving trailers. - They have been used in regular traffic both with the MY, MX, MZ, ME and EA locomotives, so will fit nice with the MY, MX and MZ already in the set and if the ME and EA is made in the future.

The wagons came in a red and later blue design
Bn wagon: https://www.jernbanen.dk/dsb_pvognfotos ... Bn&typenr=
ABns wagon: https://www.jernbanen.dk/dsb_pvognfotos ... s&typenr=2
Some of the Bns / ABns wagons also had a gangway connection. https://www.jernbanen.dk/dsb_pvognfotos ... s&typenr=1

If you need any help with re-search and or translating Danish id be happy to help :D

Thank you both for your nice comments. :)

I haven't been motivated to work on NewGRFs lately, but I'm starting to find energy again. The next release will include all four generations of Copenhagen S-Tog trains. Here's a teaser of the first generation, which I finished coding today. As with other multiple units, these are purchased in two-car pairs and when coupled into longer trains automatically choose the right sprite for that consist:

Code: Select all

MM-FS
MM-FM-FM-MM
MM-FS-MM-FS-MM-FS
MM-FM-FM-MM-MM-FM-FM-MM

Maybe I'll work on push-pull wagons after Copenhagen gets its S-Tog trains. :)

I'm very happy to see process of this set again! :D

Motivation is a tough thing, and I really understand if you prioritize other stuff. I think a danish train set is a niche GRF, with a limited download count. It's up to you how you want to spend your time :wink:

That said, I hope that you are willing to expand the set a little bit further. I don't know if you already have a sort of roadmap for the set? You could set a short term goal, if it's helps you to keep your motivation up.
