[OTTD] New Monorail Trains Set

Post by lawton27 » 03 Aug 2009 14:53

Outdated set view new set at: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=47432

nightlys: http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/nmts/nightlies/
New stuff waiting to be coded can be found there as of now :D

Hello, I am new to the forums, I have been playing OTTD for sometime now, I've noticed one thing with most new GRFs, they leave out the monorail. I have been thinking that a grf which introduces only monorail locomotives and cars to be used a long side some of the existing train sets would be a great addition to the game.
Either a grf which adds the original monorails onely to go with the existing sets or possibly more favourable to base them off real life monorails.
If this doesn’t exist I've been doing some research into existing monorail technologies and would like to help create a new grf.
Note: I can do graphical design but I don't know what stage sizes to use for ottd and am not familiar with the palate, help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Lawton27

EDIT:
The first new grf is available on page 3 thanks to DJ Nekkid hopefully an improved version will be made latter.
(for newest version start at the bottom and scroll up)

Also available on bananas (in game download system).

Past Poll results:

Should I add some real life pre 1990 monorails.

Yes: 94% [ 29 ]

No: 6% [ 2 ]


I Plan to add the modern JR maglev’s, they run various MU locomotives with 1 or 3 carriages, how should I set this up?

A) 2 Vehicles for each model, one 1 carriage, one 3 carriages.

B) Locomotives can be refit to 1 or 3 carriages.

C) Locomotives and carriages are separate items, buy a locomotive then a 1 or 3 carriage setup.

Answer 100% C

Thanks for the help, I've got to work, it's rather basic but I'm happy with my work, I've created an urban monorail train based off the one's in Tama Toshi (in dual company colors).

Could someone please code it into a grf which adds it?

Stats:
Name: Urban Monorail Train
Designed: 1998
Weight: 200 tonnes
Consist: 2 driving cars, 4 carriages
Normal Speed: 100 km/h
Top Speed: 120 km/h
Power: 1,800 kW
Capacity: 240 passengers

I'll code it. :)

You should have it by the end of the day. (I hope)

More here for codeing, if you notice this benny put it in the same grf, if not another grf will be fine for now, I plan to build a large set.

This is the express monorail, based off of the las vegas monorail trains.

Stats:
Name: Express Monorail Train
Designed: 2005
Weight: 200 tonnes
Consist: 2 driving cars, 10 carriages
Normal Speed: 144 km/h
Top Speed: 300 km/h
Power: 1,800 kW
Capacity: 480 passengers

I am sorry, but I don't want to get involved in a big set. I have tried before, but it is simply a too big task for a 14-year old that has coded 1 newGRF.

Edit: No, actually I give up. It is so long since I've coded a vehicle that the NFO doesn't make sence.. The yrel and xrel stuff is like.. :shock:

Perhaps you and andythenorth could do a bit of mutual back scratching?

http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=44613

He seems happy to make NewGRFs without sprites, you can draw but not make NewGRFs. Drop him a PM, see where it goes.


EDIT: Changed to reflect andy's abilities.

Name: Bombardier Single-Car Monorail Train
Designed: 1991
Weight: 30 tonnes
Consist: 1 car
Normal Speed: 70 km/h

I've made some more, these ones are more simple, I've mainly been trying to make more variations, I still need a coder :mrgreen:

There's a freight Monorail, it's simply designed to be a freight conversion of the urban monorail.
Stats:
Name: Freight Monorail Train
Designed: 2004
Weight: 200 tonnes
Consist: 1 driving car, 9 carriages
Normal Speed: 100 km/h
Top Speed: 120 km/h
Power: 4,000 kW
Capacity: 300 bags of mail
Refits to: all but oil, water and passengers

There's a 'Hitachi City Link' Monorail, it's based off the Hitachi monorails in Okinawa and partialy on Sentosa Island.
Stats:
Name: Hitachi City Link Monorail Train
Designed: 2003
Weight: 200 tonnes
Consist: 2 driving cars, 4 carriages
Normal Speed: 120 km/h
Top Speed: 160 km/h
Power: 1,800 kW
Capacity: 240 passengers

And the SL5 Monorail based off the one used at Sunway City
Stats:
Name: SL5 Monorail Train
Designed: 2000
Weight: 200 tonnes
Consist: 2 driving cars, 4 carriages
Normal Speed: 135 km/h
Top Speed: 180 km/h
Power: 1,800 kW
Capacity: 200 passengers

WIP is a tanker conversion of the City Link for liquids, and plans for a futuristic monorail and early monorials.

If you want to learn .nfo codeing, then look at my post on this page:
http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php? ... 3&start=20

There are lots of similarities with what you made there, and this train.
