Set of lighthouses based on real lighthouses from the Polish coast. Drawn, coded and (c) by yazalo

Current version: 0.1.0
Available on BaNaNaS: YES :twisted:
License: GPL v3
GitHub: https://github.com/yazalo/Polish-Lighthouses

Any bugs you notice, things that could be fixed, or ideas for improving NewGRF (Translations welcome!) are best posted in this thread, or in a private message to me. This is my first NewGRF, I would be grateful for any feedback :D

The lighthouses are, of course, added to the game as eyecandy objects.
All lighthouses are made to the same scale.
The years of availability coincide with the original years of construction.
The lights of the lighthouses in the game are programmed as in the real world (as far as it is possible in OpenTTD).

Historical releases available on: https://github.com/yazalo/Polish-Lighthouses/releases

I'm so happy you like it :D !
In the near future I will focus on pAter's comments about Świnoujście and Kołobrzeg (1st and 4th lighthouses), and draw the lighthouses I don't have in the set yet. Later, I'll draw more views of the current lighthouses, and then also their "old looks", at which time I'll finish coding the (parameter-enabled) automatic rebuilding of the lighthouses according to real rebuildings dates :)
I will describe all the updates here :D

Yes, that's right, I finally made those few planned changes, and am updating NewGRF to version 0.1.0 :D

Additional explanation: In the current version there is no lighthouse from Świnoujście in the previous version of view. Version 0.1 implies a minimum, i.e. one, south-western, view of each existing lighthouse, plus the "bliza" available from the Middle Ages. (I don't know the right word for "bliza" in English. Auf Deutsch heißt es "Feuerblüse" :) ). For more views, you have to wait for version 0.2 (translations would also be welcome)! :)

And this is how the drawing of the Gdańsk lighthouse looked :twisted: :

It seems that some of the lighthouses have wrong perspective, especially the fourth one from the left. Could you make some screenshots of those lighthouses placed next to some town buildings?

Oh... Yes, that's right, it should be seen from more above :oops: . This is especially true for the "rounder" lanterns, the "squarer" ones have a better perspective.
Thanks for pointing it out, I'll try to take some screenshots soon. (And some fixes) :) !

Here you can see the original lighthouse near the buildings:

Here after corrections (these were not corrections but re-drawings):

Here again after, but moved a little further away from the buildings:

I will soon try to fix the other lighthouses that need it. I'm not 100% happy with the result on this one yet, I'll be working on it too. Thanks for the suggestion on what's wrong, I knew my lanterns didn't quite match the buildings, but I didn't know what was up... :) I'm just learning ;)

The corrected perspective looks much better. Good job!

However, the rim of the inner wall looks cusped in the front and back. Is it intended to have such shape?

I don't know which spot on the lighthouse you are referring to, could you mark it on the drawing?
