I had this idea for quite some while now but I didn't knew how to draw sprites,
I've downloaded a drawing tutural and started to work on my idea...
The idea behind this project is that I've seen a lot of stations in Belgium where there were
several platforms closed for for ex.: work or just out of order...
So I wanted to create something that could recreate these situations in OTTD/TTDP/TTD.
I've started to look after several types of barricades and I've tried to recreate it.
[although this isn't the way the Belgian railways mark this, it's done by the station
platform displays but these can't be read in OTTD/TTDP nor in TTD, so this is why I did it with barricades]
[see first attachment]. This should be a type of station tile, and should not allow the
trains to pass, this way you could close a platform due to reconstruction works or something
else. Or it could also be implemented permanently for eye-candy purposes...
Here's what I've drown so far...
Test 1: This is the initial drawing, but I guess the red's to bright and could hurt some forumscreatures eyes
Test 2: This is the wooden barricade but I think there's still a little work to be done on the shadings of the posts.
Test 3: This is my personal favorite although there's not much difference between the metal posts and the tracks.
Test 4: Fourth test white one not the best try I did. [second personal favorite]
Test 5: Tried to implement [see attachment 3] the word "CLOSE" not to visible I'm afraid.
[initialy I wanted to write CLOSED but the space was the short to write this
Test 6: Tried to implement the word "STOP".
Test 7: Second test with wooden posts. [Liked the first wooden test more]
Tell me which one you like and If you like the idea...
Also If you would like to see something changed tell it to me...
