Welcome to thread for the...
While a previous project of mine fell under the same name, this is sort of a modern rebirth where I
actually know how to draw and code for road vehicles.
This set aims to include a variety of buses, trucks, trams, and other road vehicles used in North America.
Everyday us North American's see a variety of buses, coaches, trucks, delivery vans, etc especially if you
live in a busy town or city.
For once it would be nice to play with stuff we see and perhaps drive, ride, or work around and use
them to our benefit.
As with my NARS Add-on Set, I'll be including anything that was used in North America, even stuff
that was designed and built else where so long as theres proof it was used to some extent in the USA,
Canada, or Mexico. Depending on the circumstances, I might even include one off demos or prototypes
that aren't North American designs.
Lastly, I might also add in some "special" stuff like emergency vehicles, taxies, hi-rail trucks as well
as other non-transport specific vehicles. Panel vans will likely make an appearance for sure as they can
be used to move small amounts of cargo around, while some van's can act as small shuttle buses.~ VEHICLE LIST ~
For now I only have a handful of buses and coaches, which where originally drawn up to perhaps
be included in Road-Hog but I've instead decided to create my own RV set based on Road-Hog's code.~ INSTALLATION ~
Either search for "North American Industry Set" via the ingame Content Downloader/Online Content, or download the file from here, and place the "north_american_road_vehicle_set_v#.#.#.tar" in your newgrf folder. This is the folder where your save files and OpenTTD.cfg will be. BY default the game loads grfs from your documents folder. The tar file does not need to be extracted (OpenTTD for a long time has been able to load GRF's from .tar archive files)
Windows : Documents/OpenTTD/newgrf
MAC OS : home\documents\OpenTTD\newgrf
Linux : home\documents\OpenTTD\newgrf
(Unsure about the MAC OS and Linux locations, feel free to correct me on those)~ MISC ~
I'm open to suggestions and help, especially with sprites. I'm not much of a sprite artist these days due to a lack of time and motivation. That doesnt mean I wont try to draw stuff if I dont get any assistance with that.
I'd also really appreciate if people can send me specifications for the road vehicles in my set or RV's one might want to have included.
Data I need for adding road vehicles : Intro Date, Power, Max Speed, Weight, Seating(+Standing) Capacity, and any other misc information like length, years in production, etc.
