Back after a long time, wondering about newgrfs

Post by Expresso » 21 Dec 2018 13:00

After a long time (3 years) I started playing openttd again. Now, I tried a game with a nice 1024x1024 map with some newgrfs, however I found the newgrfs I used a bit lacking in the station department. Could anyone give a suggestion as to which station grfs are nice looking. I found that there's a lot of newgrfs these days and I'm wondering how I should configure openttd.

I also wonder... there are 3 newgrfs for the Dutch station set, do I need to load them all?

Station NewGRFs are unproblematic: Load them all - in a test game, if you want - and in your next game only load those which you like.

The dutch and australian station sets come in multiple parts due to a restriction on the max number of Station tiles or something like that that a GRF can have. IT also allows one to just have what they want enabled and leave the rest.

You might also want to check on GRF Crawler for station GRF's as not every station GRF (and other GRF's) are available online as some are older GRF's that never got uploaded to Banana's for downloading ingame.

A whole list of stations here, should be nearly complete: https://wiki.openttd.org/NewGRF_List

Dutch Station Set and Auz Stations are the two that have been putting out the most work in the last few years, though.
