[OTTD]Level Crossing's Screenshots

Post by Level Crossing » 25 Feb 2011 23:37

The first game I'll show is clean trunk, no newGRFs.

First screenshot:
Dronwood and Dranwell share a train station, with bus feeders.

A "branch" and "main" line meet here. The middle 2 platforms were originally built to expand the station, but the venture was abandoned after the expected passenger flow failed to appear.

...continued...

Nedham, the terminal of two branch lines. It used to have only one, but overcrowding was such that the company was forced to extend another.

Wenhill, the main city of the company's empire. This is the converging city for both of my main lines, as well as two branches. "All roads lead to Wenhill"? However, unfortunately, due to urban decay, the downtown area has lost many of its buildings. To attract more customers, the company moved its branch-line station to the suburbs.

Farthingstone, served by local trains on my Pledingbury-Nedham branch line. After residents farther down the line complained about the length of their commute, the company made express trains bypass the station via the center track.

A quick birds-eye overview of my routes.

And a very not-to-scale map. Many tourists visiting the company president's statue in Wenhill have gotten lost, but the company lacks the designers to make a new one.

Note: I was inspired by Gord while creating this. I used under-the-table secret deals (cheats :D) to get money and demolish lanes in towns for my nice, leafy train lines.

After protests from the northern part of the map, the company was forced to add a diesel line. Here is a diesel train leaving Senfingwell City.

The lines were built single-tracked, with the stations in the town roads to save money and avoid demolishing half the town. However, residents along the line swamped it, leaving the company with no choice but to build numerous passing tracks along the line.

More stuff :)

The line has had to take an unusual detour to avoid Chadingham National Forest. The nearby station has been accordingly named, after pressure from the local tourist group.

That company got caught cheating for money, so a new one has been started with many newGRFs.

Time now: 1940.
Map size: 512 by 512.

What exists:

A main city, Easton, with 20,000-population cities at each corner of the map, for future mainlines.

However, once again the owner has not abandoned his old ways, using cheats to get money and demolition rights.

Screenshots (zoom in for better quality):

Like the screenshots keep em coming.

But I do think you should change the name of your main hub to EAT ON seeing as there's 5 McDonald's within walking distance of the station lol

Make that 6 I missed the one at top left

The town has boomed, with over one million residents. The McDonalds restaurants were removed from downtown by the local authority after it deemed them too unhealthy :D. Therefore, after taking your suggestion into consideration, we are forced to decline.

Easton North after the elimination of fast food. For service to McDonalds, take the express to Garnton :D

And now, The Junction. This has brought a huge problem to Easton Transport. It had tried to save money by merging the local and express tracks for the trip into Easton, but the company still brought slower locomotives for the local runs. The express riders protested vehemently, however, at how their elite, rapid service was being slowed by crawling locomotives. To make a long story short, Easton Transport was forced to buy faster locomotives for the local lines too, thus wiping out all possible savings.

In an effort to save money and prevent empty halves of platforms, Easton Transport has begun utilizing half-platforms on its local line. The platform is on the town side of the station (if the station is on the outskirts).

Also visible is the first intra-city service, the Easton subway, with brand-new, electric signals. The line is not in service as of yet.

Using Vaulter's Hard Pack, the adventures continue!

The subway in Easton has rapidly expanded, with two full-fledged lines. The introduction of electric signals was so successful that it is now testing on the express mainlines in and out of Easton Station.

Please comment! Feel free to request an area for me to screenshot!

Nice screens. To bad for all that signals. Like all that people that builds signals every 1,2,3 squers. Where in the world have you saw a train occupying 2, 3 signals simultaneously!?

The "signal every two tiles setup" has nothing to do with reality. It is an in game strategy that allows for many trains to travel efficiently on the same stretch of track minus the constant stopping and starting. While many players build their networks in a realistic manner there are still occasional concessions that must be made to the fact that this is a game and not reality. As such it might require the use of certain mechanics that differ from reality in order to make it work as one might desire.
