I wouldn't worry about that - I post some absolute beasts on here and they don't get responses, a simple one train shot and others love it. Guess it's all about personal taste. I do often compliment a screenshot thread, but rarely individual screenies.Wasila wrote:Apparently my screenies aren't doing as well as I hoped. What am I doing wrong? What can I improve? All suggestions would be appreciated .
Don't worry. I get a few replies to my thread now and again but not that often . But I see the view counts go up and that makes me want to share more.
So how do you think I should continue from here? Should I go with my descriptive, story-line approach or go more picture-heavy?
"A one-way to New York City?" the second man scoffed. "Traiterous..." he surged forwards, only held back by the first man. "Leave her. She's not worth it."
"You're right," the second man said, ripping up the ticket. "Wha...bu...I spent my life savings on that ticket!" the woman shouted, but it was too late. The two men were gone. She looked around wildly for someone to help her, but there was none. The streets of central Minsk were bare; everyone, for one reason or another, was at the station.
Part of the new Kiev-Moscow line. Notice the rival line currently under construction.
New York City? How do you catch a train to New York City? You don't...
London. A few years earlier. The situation could not be more different. A second, outer tramline has been built, to great acclaim. When one of the western stations was named 'Heathrow Express', it became obvious that something was up. Two shiny new airports later and it all became obvious. Heathrow Terminal 1 was filled to the brim as excited masses watched the first GlobalTrans planes take off into the sunset, heading straight for the New World. No one could doubt that the Transport Revolution had truly arrived as an identical scene took place, over three thousand miles away. A couple of years later and nine planes were serving the route, with London becoming an air hub with further services to Dublin and Turin. Profits soared, and the Air Division is already raking in £500,000 per annum (trains bring in £3m).
Heathrow Airport, with an extremely high capacity metro line connecting it with London.
And finally, shenanigans in New Delhi. The map on the bottom right explains all - New Delhi is now, after great pressure - regional and national, connected to the network, with trains to Bangalore in the south as well as the Dacca terminus. I will update the map tomorrow.
You place your train station on the outside of towns and have no connection to the centre or far side of that town. If you place the stations on the out skids a good bus link is need to the take the population to the station. This also links into that you have no city transport, you cover intercity travel in excellent way but once a person get to one of your station there is no links to the rest of the city or one part of the city to another.
Again great job, keep the photos coming.
Thanks. I suppose your right; it's almost worth it just to come back in three months and see a record of what I did on my corrupted savegames.Hi, very good photos, don't worry about the number of people looking at this topic if you do you will go insane, you will never get the numbers like other games. However I do have a few comments to make:
Interesting you should mention that. Really, I can't be bothered to set up tram routes in all my cities, and I thought that for the ones where I do have them they would make for uninteresting screenshots.If you place the stations on the out skids a good bus link is need to the take the population to the station. This also links into that you have no city transport, you cover intercity travel in excellent way but once a person get to one of your station there is no links to the rest of the city or one part of the city to another.
Is this the kind of thing you're looking for? Two circular tram lines, connected up at St. Pancras International.
Updated map attached.
I didn't make this map . I suppose the map creator wanted to stick all of Holland into one so he used the urban term for all the major cities.show holland lolz, randstad
Randstad-Holland. The train coming in from the east is an express train (yes, I know there are no through-tracks. Station upgrades are planned ).

But yeah, the line that goes through the city is way undercapacity. Blame Paris for that - it's completely full but some stupid bug won't let me demolish the roads next door to expand - and expanding that line will excarberate the problem. I may move the London-Paris connection to terminate at Gare de Lyon, which would free up a lot of space.
I was trying to hold this off (which is why I moved London-Paris to Gare de Lyon), but I have now used said bulldozer to upgrade Randstad-Holland.do control+alt+c opening the cheat menu, look for "magic bulldozer" and you can destroy anything with 1 click
I'm not gone, don't worry
Of absolutely no consequence whatsoever, quite a lot has been going on in the world of GlobalTrans. Firstly, a large number of stations have received desperately needed overhauls.
The Randstad-Holland design has also been copied across the Rhein-Ruhr - Kiev route.
This, a matter of interest, is the actual network as it stands. The smaller lines in the Middle East are lucrative oil routes.
Also this. Need I say more?
Also, I'm interested in building a cargo network but I somehow never get it to work - I don't see the point because I just link up two nearish industries and those are separate from others. Tips?

That would be a "yes" then...Badger wrote:I always look to use existing lines when connecting industries
