Hello, this is my idea for playing this game ONLY with the less and best 32bpp graphics possible, here you will see my list of the best graphics that until the moment I have found, I don´t like mix 8bpp with 32bpp, for that reason I want to play only with all the objects in the best definition, if any have another idea of find that this list can be improve with another 32bpp (nex trucks, cargos, bus, passengers, towns, Industries, places, land....everything) program, I really appreciate the suggestion in order to include it, thanks.

My list:

zBase set stablished first.

• 8/32bpp Canton Buses (CHN)
• 8/32bpp Chinese Trains in NML
• BRIX Realism IS XXXX
• BRStations (Modern)
• China HQs
• Czech Road Set
• JRD Standart European Set:Train
• Opengfx Airports as Objects
• Pineapple Train (10CC)
• RAWR Absolute World Replacement
• YETI Extended Towns and Industries

I would not load RAWR and BRIX together. They both attempt to do the same, and you probably won't see both sprites at the same time. As you can read it here, BRIX supersedes RAWR. If you load RAWR after BRIX as you do in the screenshot, you're actually losing out on the glorious graphics provided by BRIX. My recommendation is not to use RAWR at all.

Thnaks a lot for your message, I will do your recomendation, now I have another issue, listen:

Hi, I have a problem, yesterday I downloaded from this url (https://wiki.openttd.org/32bpp_Extra_Zoom_Levels_Files ) several TAR files, when I added them to the rest of my TAR files located in the place C:\Users\HP\Documents\OpenTTD\content_download\newgrf (inside here appear all the TAR that are currently used in all my games), and I ran the game again, I could see that all the TAR files where a file finished in GRF were missing, they didn´t appear to be installed in the NewGRF settings and for that reason they can´t be loaded in any game.

There are in all those files beautiful houses, streets, trucks, airplanes, industries, bus, train…..all of them in 32bpp.

Only those files, a couple may be, where the GRF is visible, appear in the game, example, the Jubilee_v9, but, for example, the Craighead_Goods_Truck.Tar, where only appear several pics inside a file called “sprites”, doesn´t.

My question is, where should I install those files correctly in order to enjoy all the options that those files bring??, thanks.

Im glad you’ve included my set BRStations (Modern) but even though it is coded as 32bpp they are in fact 8bpp graphics with 32bpp transparency.

They wont look right next to true 32bpp graphics.

well, when I included that file and I ran the game, I didn´t noted any problem, honestly, I don´t know which building or cargo appear because your soft.

My idea is have all the compatible and possible 32bpp in a game, if you or some else have ideas for te inclusion of new grf at 32bpp, Im all ears.

As the banner at the top of the page says, these graphics cannot be used with anything equal or higher to OpenTTD 1.2.0.

The blocker for modifying those graphics is that there is no clear license for distributing them. That is, the various authors never gave permission to have their work distributed. It's against the law to use them. People tried to get permission afterwards, but that largely failed as well.

The end result is that those are nice graphics, and you can't do anything with them, but look at them, watch them die a slow and lonely death.

Many people (including artists) don't understand that they have to give explicit permission to others to use their work. I think the artists are totally unaware of this problem, and believe their work can be used.

The most solid solution is to make it yourself, but that may not be easy (then again, making nice things is never easy).

Hi guys, after several tests and after the inclusion of all the 32bpp possible, my game looks like this: see attachment.

There is a website that I need to investigate in order to know if the graphics they are offering fix in the game, the only problem that I have found is that there are not so many choices developed yet for towns, trucks, trains, airplanes, building, and so....

If anyone has another idea for the inclusion of new gfr but ONLY for 32bpp, Im all ears.
Im open to new suggestion.

There's a 32bpp version of GRVTS (not eGRVTS) which gives you a great selection of road vehicles and trams which IMO is still unmatched by any other 32bpp set:

Hi, I downloaded the GRVTSv1.4 but I didn`t understand very well when in the Instruction you say " to use these graphics you need the extra zoom levels version of OpenTTD", in the web page appear a lot of information, which file should I need to download, the zbase set??.

I can´t find the .tar containing the 32bpp GRVTS sprites according with your instructions, can you explain where that file is inside??

Ignore all of that, that was for an experimental version of OpenTTD when extra zoom was still being developed, not in trunk yet. Just put the grvts32.grf in your newgrf folder like you would any other NewGRF :wink: (use the download link above)

Here, I managed to compress it enough for the forums to accept it, get 7zip to extract it if you don't have it already
