Iron Horse "Quicksilver" Add-On

Post by SimYouLater » 24 Apr 2018 18:33

With Pikkabird's blessing, I will be posting the source code here.

Meant to be used with the Iron Horse set, which does not and will not have a streamlined train of it's own.

ORIGINAL POST BELOW!

Andy has access to the UKRS2 sprites, and anyone else is welcome to modify them too. But I think you'd be better off starting from scratch, and trying to match the style of the existing IH big locos.

Ten LMS Coronations; two LNER B17s, six P2s and 35 A4s; 30 SR Merchant Navies and 110 Light Pacifics. And a few oddities like the W1 and GWR 6014.

Notable takeaways: more than 2/3rds of British streamliners were Bulleid's "air-smoothed" Pacifics, and only a dozen weren't either Bulleid or Gresley designs. On the other hand, the Gresley A4s were the only class that weren't substantially rebuilt to remove their casings later in life. So a "representative" streamliner really has to be based on either the A4 or the Bulleid Pacifics.

There's the voice of someone who learned all he knows from Transport Tycoon. ;)
Counting all streamliners you cited, it's 160 streamliners in total.
The PLM only had 6 streamliners. That's not very much for a country that is three times bigger than Great Britain.

For the british steamers, i don't know much, i could have cited the Tram Engine from UKRS2 though.
Access to UKRS2, but I was thinking UKRS1... I was thinking of combining the A4 and Wardale 604 graphics, but I guess you feel they're not a good fit for this set? At the very least, it would be nice if I could combine it with UKRS1 and not have alignment issues.

You can simply use GRFWizard to have the sprites directly though. IIRC UKRS is GPL v2 (maybe higher), so you just need to cite Pikka for the graphics.

Please don't make guesses at licenses. It can cause boring forum dramas. It's easy to check the facts.

No that's quite wrong. Please don't spread this misinformation. :roll:

"All rights reserved" means that nobody can use Pikka's sprites without express permission.

Usually, if people ask nicely, Pikka will give permission. But Pikka can also speak for himself on this. ;)

I won't include streamliners in UK Horse. It would be a nice grf to make for yourself though. It's fun to make your own things :)

I want to be absolutely sure I'm doing this right. I've just done up the sprites (easy when most of the work is already done) for what I'm calling "Silver Streak", but I need to know Pikkabird is going to be okay with it before I post the sprites here.

Gwyd, is acs121 right about citations? I cited him with a "Credits to Pikkabird" on the sprite sheet.

ACS is completely wrong. It could be considered you breaking the law of you posted it! I'd go check with pikka if he's happy or not.

Don't worry, I haven't posted it anywhere. Thanks for letting me know, though. I've PM'd Pikkabird with a copy of the graphics, but they will not be put anywhere else on the forum.

Somewhat i'm not completely wrong. You NEED to cite the original author of the graphics. It is an obligation.

No pics no clicks. Seriously. Also stop using Modern Maglev Trains. Use RIMS instead.

I’m really not best pleased about this discussion for reasons discussed in the IH thread, and will be drawing Pikka’s attention to it.

If you have a query about the conditions under which Pikka has granted you permission to use his sprites, you should speak to him privately.

I absolutely, positively did not post the edited graphics anywhere, and have PM'd Pikkabird about whether he is okay with my altered sprites before doing anything more than discuss the graphics I made.

I respect licenses, even though I have pointed out in the past that I don't like them. Please don't throw a fit over rules when no rules have been broken, again the graphics are only on my computer and in the PM I sent to Pikkabird, no one else has access to a copy and it will stay that unless and until Pikkabird gives the okay.

Funny thing about licenses ... We tend to forget about copyright which rests with the originator until his/her dying day, unless s/he transfers the copyright to another party. Barring transfer, the originator grants a privilege that is set out in a license. Always read the license. It might not be what you think it is. On a related note, GPL does not require attribution, but it does encourage it, and irregardless, it is a simple matter of common courtesy to cite attribution. The originator will appreciate the recognition and the knowledge that somebody else is sufficiently impressed with the originator's works that s/he would themselves like to work with it. 8)

I'm generally happy for anyone to use my older graphics as a base for their own OpenTTD sprite work. This includes UKRS1 and 2, NARS2 and Av8. NARS2 contains a lot of work from DanMacK, who has given similar general permission in the past. UKRS1 may contain elements from the original TTD sprites - how you deal with that is up to you.

I generally avoid legalese licences like GPL because, honestly, no-one's suing anyone over OpenTTD sprites, and as this thread aptly demonstrates most community members don't understand them anyway. For such a small community as ours, implied licencing and open discussion is fine. But I know a lot of people find GPL a convenient default, so including sprites or code derived from mine in GPL sets is fine.

Fair enough. I'm looking into it myself but I'm not seeing anything useful in the NML Tutorial.
