Roujin: I also favor the existing color scheme, because toyland is poor in sprites and will look monotonous if you make only green trees. Please make full use of the changing colors in trees. Just make sure that there are not many brigh colors that disturb the eye. Trunk could be a bit brighter as Zephyris suggested.

Here are a couple of fixes to previously drawn sprites and a couple of direct replacement locos for the Kelling and the MJS.

The Wood car I posted wasn't loaded in the diagonals and I had a couple of extra black pixels on my F7.

Also, I drew a double end cab unit and a boxcab diesel (modified from Zephyris' goods van :P) for the double ended units.

Hope this helps.

Toyland trains next.

The Kelling 3100, and the MJS 1000. Those two Locos have 4 views in original TTD, so if I want to add the other full 8 sprites, ill have to use more than an action A spriteswap... Also, supporting the Turner turbo passanger, and mail overrides needs more than replacing the default sprites. So here is my question, should I make them work with more advanced newgrf coding, or the sprites should be redesigned?
Lastly shall I update the "newVehicles - Rail v0.2" grf with DanMacK`s locos, or make a seperate grf file?

If u want, just send me the .nfo (s) and .pcx'es, and ill add them to what i already have made... or i can send u what i have made...
I`ll decode the 0.2 version then add my lines then recode it as 0.3... Also ill update the wagon graphic with the ones by DanMacK. Would be this way okey for you?

I have used the default carriages to get the corresponding offsets. The "_" y offset, shouldnt be increased, since it appears on the purchase engines window, only the echanced replacement could have seperate graphic for that window...

Noticed another oopsie with the coal cars - Didn't extend the | views like I did on the other cars. Fixed version below. Also noticed I had the stripe on the \ view of the food car too low.

Re: Cargo Icons

Enjoy. Toyland will be done later.
Sorry for doublepost, but wouldnt mix the two :roll:

I decided I would try to code these, and they look good and all, but... I get into some problems. I'm not sure, but I think my problems may be releated to palette, as some of the icons dont look same in game and outside. Could this be becoz I use the 8bpp palette (same as original gamefiles) and DanMacK painted these in 32bpp? So when I convert them I get some pixels using colors that shouldnt be used for objects?? Like CC or something like that?

If so, how do I fix it? Retouch the odd pixels? Load another palette that will work in game?

I have to say tough, the passenger icon looks very nice in my game :D

Re: Trond
I think you need palconvert to convert the animated colours into the normal colour equivalent...

Palconvert - Palette converter for action colours, converts action colours to normal colours. In the command line:
"palconvert <pcxname>" - converts target PCX action colours to normal colours.
"palconvert <pcxname> -C" - converts target PCX action colours to normal colours, not altering company colours.

Re: DanMacK
Awesome! :D

Re: Buttercup
I am going to draw some new sloped water tiles, they will be based on these ones provided by leppka - these would make a good placeholder. Is it quite easy to code rivers? You did that really fast! I think I will make the other climate river/canal graphics too, I'm not entirely happy with my artwork but someone else may want to tweak it.

Thanx Zephyris, I actually tought of that... but then I took a SS of the mail icon ingame and blew it up in PSP and the problem was that the grey colors used in the mail icon doesnt come out very well on the dark grey backround of the station windows, so in fact there where nothing wrong like I first tought :roll: its noot easy beeing noob :lol:

So I guess I should rather ask DanMacK: you wanne change a bit on the mailicon so it comes out better? If you look at the screenshot in a 500% zoom you will see what I mean I think... (eventough its much more visible ingame...)

EDIT: Done coding all the cargo icons, now would be a good time to do those toyland icons DanMacK ;) And I would probably have to start a toyland game, wich will be my first ever... oh my eyes... 8)

New Mail Icon - Revised Will do the Toyland ones tonight

One note regarding generic trams as well. I personally think the Generic Tram Set should serve as a base for release for the advanced graphics. Maybe add an early tram (I can do that :D)

Great DanMacK! :bow:

The generic tram set shamelessly copies the original graphics, so use of its graphics should be avoided. The code, however, is definately available.

since rivers are being worked, why don't draw them like small falls instead of only rocks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Tambo_river.jpg)? it will give to the game a little more eyecandy, also because there are too many rocks on the river, or maybe full falls too, which looks good when the fall is larger than one tile, this intended to be an extension of current slopes, not to replace all them

and another thing, will rivers support different graphics with height difference (like over the snowline)? because we might draw also these kind of rivers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:R%C3 ... onso_2.jpg

The rivers feature does indeed support this.
He's like, some kind of OpenTTD developer.

And I will be providing the graphics soon! I would like to make the rivers above the snow line lined with ice, something like this, and make the rivers in the desert lined with grass... It may be a bit of a challenge!

Perhaps it's a little late to be saying this, but is there any chance the flat water graphics could be made to not flow in a specific direction? It doesn't look right when an isolated patch of water just flows for no particular reason, and it doesn't quite fit with the sloped water tiles either.

Re: buttercup
There is, as far as i know, now way to let the rivers/canals have different flat water graphics to the sea, and there is definately no way for the game to know which way the river would be flowing. You could push for a patch, but to be honest I don't see the devs being very interested in including it in trunk...

Re: DanMacK
When drawing the new tram graphics make them slightly longer, like the trains, so they fit together better when the tram is traveling straight...

Sorry, what I meant was "would lepkka mind if we edited his flat water sprites so that they don't flow in any particular direction?"

That is if there is sufficient interest to do so...
