Standardized Roadtype and Tramtype Schemes?

Post by SimYouLater » 18 Jun 2019 18:54

Is this a good idea, or is it redundant?

I could at least see it working for trams, since there are both meter gauge and standard gauge tram track types.
Licenses for my work...
You automatically have my permission to re-license graphics or code by me if needed for use in any project that is not GPL v2, on the condition that if you release any derivatives of my graphics they're automatically considered as ALSO GPL v2 (code may remain unreleased, but please do provide it) and carry this provision in GPL v2 uses.
Please ask someone in-the-know to be sure that the graphics are done by me. Especially TTD-Scale, long story.

The rough result of the last discussion about this topic was: there's not enough vehicle sets yet to see whether that is really needed, and which details need to be modelled.
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)

Tramtype scheme is redundant. There's no reason to differentiate between that and the Railtype scheme.

As for the Roadtype scheme, that'll be really useful. Make sure to base it on the Railtype scheme tho.
And I agree with Eddi, it's a bit too early to make any definitive statements.
No pics no clicks. Seriously. Also stop using Modern Maglev Trains. Use RIMS instead.
