mph's British Stations / Alexandra Palace

Post by Dave » 22 Feb 2013 00:24

mph's British Stations

mph intended to post these at some point but never did. He hasn't posted for three years. Meanwhile, I get monthly posts about them, and I'm bored of that. Being that he wanted to post, didn't, and has now not been around, I've put both GRFs on BaNaNas.

As stated in the GRF description, both files are released AS IS. I will not deal with any bug reports, glitches, or indeed be responsible if your favourite game is cocked up by these.

BRITISH STATION SET

This set contains a variety of station tiles as detailed below. All have a British style white line on the edge, and are all edged with a brick wall UNLESS stated.

Contains:
Buffer stops - Obviously only 1 tile in length, but no limits on width.
Blank tile - Can only be placed one at a time.
Footbridge (facing toward camera in both directions) - edged with a wall. Limited to 1x1.
Outer Shelters - 2x2 tile maximum, but can be placed alongside each other. Also adds benches and plants to middle platform.
Island Shelters - Must be at least 2 tiles wide. Places benches on outer platform.
Station Roof - Any length, but is limited to 2 or 4 tile width.
Benches - Any length and width. Adds wooden benches and a lamp-post.
Benches and Plants - As above, but adds brick planters.
Signs - Any length and width. Adds a lamp-post.
Platform ends - all directions. NOT edged with a wall. These have the British style ramp end. 1 tile in length, any width.
Bare platform - NOT edged with a wall. Any length and width.


ALEXANDRA PALACE SET

This set contains a few British style buildings that interface with the platforms.

Contains
Alexandra Palace - 1x1 non-station tile
Gunton - 2x1 non-station tile
Billingshurst - 2x1 non-station tile
Beeston - 2x1 non-station tile
Fenchurch Street - 2x1 non-station tile
"unknown" - a British style building. It requires two tracks to appear. If you build a single track, you'll get blank platforms.
Cardiff Central - 3x1 non-station title
Moor St - 3x1 non-station tile (front and rear version supplied)
Kings Cross - 4x1 non-station tile (front and rear version supplied)

Examples...

And my apologies to jvassie and Ameecher, who have been developing a new set based on this one. A mistake meant I uploaded the wrong file, so I have decided to upload both. Sorry lads.

A much more thorough and polished incarnation of the tiles is in development here:

Shouldn't Cardiff Queen Street be in there somewhere?

Edit: And by that I mean Central.

I know you said that the prerelease hasn't been posted but that's what I've got and none of the non track tiles:

I think those are from the direct link posted above?

Erm... Right. Let me look into that.

*massive cock-up*

Yeah it looks like the version on BaNaNas is indeed the unreleased platforms..

Since this is now out there, I might as well release it to all...

I'm in talks with the devs now to remove the files so I can re-upload them, please bear with.

Obviously it's a prerelease so I was wondering if there are any noticeable bugs or other things that are not of release quality that we should know about?

Quite a few but none of them will make it unplayable. To be honest I don't think anyone wants bug reports as this is all being recoded anyway.

As for you Dave... Warraknob.

Er...whoops! :lol:

These look like a decent alternative to NewStats and Suburban/Rural Stations, at least until the 'proper' BMSS gets released... :wink:

James and I had no input on any of this, BMSS is an evolution of this that James has done off his own back. I just criticise him and tell him what to do.

I like these stations, and am using them in a game I currently have, but only have one suggestion:

Some stations look good only on a certain side of the platform, and look odd on the "wrong" side. In some cases, space available means they have to be on the "wrong" side, which means things like parking spaces between station building and platform.

Is there anything in the works for front and back views of all station buildings, or at least more "generic" so the same building looks good either way?

Put simply, no.

jvassie hasn't included the buildings in BMSS, and the ones I've put here will not be developed further.

Just seen this, lol Dave :P

To all wondering, the version he had isn't the 'latest' per se, there have been tweaks made since to fix some issues - it isn't technically a public release..

If there are any points you do wish to make, then the most suitable place would be in the development topic for BMSS, not here please.
