Default set extension grf

Post by Mister_X »

Hi all,

I've finally released my first grf: "Default set extension". :)
After year 2051, we have a lot of stations with a lot of platforms to handle the trains. Some stations are fully optimized but cannot handle more trains than needed.
For this case, I've created a new grf which contains only maglev vehicles. The wagons can carry more passengers or cargo than the standard wagons in OpenTTD and are released in year 2060, 2110 and 2160.
Since the wagons can load more passengers and cargo, the train weights are higher and 3 new engines are also added into this grf.

Currently, only all wagons for the Temerate landscape are available in this grf. Other landscape wagons like paper and water are not available.

I would like to have some feedback to improve this grf. :)

It's a good idea, but "Default set extension" is a horrible name and gives no indication as to what the set is actually for. "Extended Maglev Train Set", for example, would be a better name and descriptive of the set's purpose.

A universal cargo wagon would probably be useful until you get around to drawing some more distinctive cargo wagons.

I share kamnets reply on both accounts: it's a very good idea to provide further rolling stock and content for years beyond 2060; there is very little in that regard.

What about a name like "Trains of the future", "2060 and beyond" or alike?

Did I miss a link to the NewGRF so that we could give feedback on it?

That's the link indeed. I wouldn't put the direct download link here, because it can be downloaded from the online content in the game.

@kamnet:
You are right. The name "Default set extension" is a bad name and "Extended Maglev Train Set" is better. May be I should rename it into "Extended Maglev trains"?

I've uploaded a newer version of this grf.

New wagons for the climates sub-artic and sub-tropical are added.
I've tried to change the name of this grf, but that is not possible.

This is the link to the new grf: http://binaries.openttd.org/bananas/new ... n-4.tar.gz
