Smooth Road and Rail Curves

Post by Doenitz » 01 Sep 2015 17:14

I have played Transport Tycoon (Albeit on tablet) and, after playing OpenTTD, I noticed TT had smooth curves for roads and railways, as well as S-Turns. I would love to see these in OpenTTD, but I know this would be a major job. Some NewGRFs have objects that have graphics that cover tiles other than those it was placed on (eg. The median third lane tile from Dutch Road Furniture). Could eyecandy curves that 'hide' abrupt turns in road or track be possible, and be placed alongside as an object?

I think it could do that, but it would only hide them, vehicles would still follow the real tracks/roads, which will look strange.

It'll be more difficult to build.

I'm all for eye candy objects but some stuff really needs to be done properly or not at all :?

Open the Landscape toolbar, then access the Objects menu button (looks like a tower).
