new stuff in openttd

Post by Strawbs89 » 27 Oct 2019 16:04

hi all in the first scenrio not the snow land, dessert or toyland
you should have what the normal world has like, transport

fizzy drinks
have shops not just houses
maybe transport cloths and music gas electric

A LOT bigger maps for the normal games

have real people in openttd
maybe think about some of those suggestions

With NewGRFs you can add anything you want to transport. As it is we do have NewGRFs which introduce textile goods and gasoline, and various shops in towns to deliver to. Also, you can create maps of large sizes. With a patch pack you can create even alrger than that, larger than what's even practical but you can do so anyhow.

Ok what about people there's no real people in the game you can't see them get on a bus or train...i mean shops in the first scenario (not snow not dessert not toyland)

I don't see shops in the first scenario also

also how do i load a new GRF into the game i'v forgotten
and once loaded into the game can i load it up into my loaded game that i have made

At the small scale that OpenTTD runs at, they'd be pixel blobs, nothing discernible. It might be better if somebody drew them at 4x full zoom, but that's probably going to fall under "too much work for too little gain".

You can download NewGRFs via the in-game Content Download service.

While you can load them into a game that you've already made, it will most likely corrupt your game, so it's disabled by default. It's better to start a new game.

It's available in the game through the Check Online Content button. It's called Real Arcade Town Set.

That's very curious, since I was the one who took over that set and put it in the online service myself. But, despite it being listed on the website, and all the links working, indeed it is not showing up inside the game as available to download. I'll have to investigate later.

In the meanwhile, use this link: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=27211&start=60#p1019927
