Supplemental Unsurfaced Road Vehicles Set (SUV) (*NRT)

Post by Kruemelchen » 03 Apr 2018 12:51

A late happy easter everyone!
I'd like to present a Road Vehicle GRF I've been working on since a couple of weeks: A set of off-road trucks, that fill in the gap between normal road vehicles and heavy hauling vehicles.

Outline
SUV (Supplement Unsurfaced Road Vehicle Set) supplies your OTTD game with a set of small and weak, yet multi-featured trucks (and SUVs ...), which can run on various Road Types. This makes the vehicles of this set the all-rounders you need on your strife to create a vast web of, separated, road networks.

Requirements
This set needs NRT / RATT to work, like, at all.
Other than that, it is recommended to use this set together with GRFs that provide unsurfaced or hauling Road Types.
(i.e. andythenorth's Road Hog or my humble Country Roads. You may also try Unspooled for a vast on-road experience.)

Content
The trucks (and SUVs...) provided by this set include only vehicles made by namely manufactures of the more or less eastern parts of Germany, formerly German Democratic republic, as well as former Czechoslovakia and former Soviet Union.
The vehicles (will) span, effectively, a time frame from the 1930s to the 2000s. However, as horse carts are (will be) included as well, this set can be used since the pre-industrial time.
For most parts, the vehicles are realistic in power, capacity, 'life-span' etc.; however, some things can be configured via parameters to adapt to other, unrealistic, game styles, as well.

The up to now available vehicles are ...

The featured types of vehicles are ...
Multifunctional Cars (a set of 'mufu's)
Image
These tiny cars were designed to be used on industrial complexes, conveying small bits of cargoes around the site. However, since they are full-featured 4X4 cars, they can be used on unsurfaced tracks as well.
Supports all kinds of Road Types!
Can be easily refitted to every cargo available! (excluding long cargo like wood which would need some semi-trailer-fication, which was IRL available but not in this set, anyway, but hey, you've got your heavier hauling rigs...)
Cheap to buy, cheap to run, thus light in transportability!


SUVs ('normal' cars)
Image
These cars are 'normal' Street runners, maybe even slightly adapted to unsurfaced roads. Though the later ones have full 4X4 ability and can run through the mud, as well. Typically separate passenger and express freight cars are being included. Purposed to run through small towns and villages spreading passengers, mail and goods. Later models (that's SUVs) can run on any unsurfaced road, as well, some models (that's without all wheel traction) only on surfaced roads.
Supports up to all kinds of Road Types!
Providing seats for about 3 passengers! (and a driver...)
Cheap and fast!


Horse carts
Image
There are (will be) horse carts available for the slow side of life. Coming in three sizes, they will be drawing your carts through all terrains.
Supports all kinds of Road Types, except Motorways! (for no droppings shall put the traffic safety at risk...)
Transports at least some cargo!
Cheap and slow!


Tractors
Image
Features small to heavy tractors that can be used from industrial sites to agriculture and forestry.
Can run on any surface, except Motorways! (for traffic reasons...)
Heaves up to three trailers filled with any of your precious cargoes!
Not cheap, yet slow!


Small Trucks (and buses...)
Image
A vast set of small trucks that can even bring your passengers to the outermost areas of any map. Most come in separated truck and bus form type, the latter, however, limited in industrial usability.
Can run on any Road Type!
Heaves and hauls up to all kind of cargoes!
Not expensive, but efficient!


Big Trucks (or, rather big trucks...)
Image
A variety of trucks designed to transport any sorts of industrial cargo. It even hauls oversized cargo on low-boy trailers, which non of the above types will be able to.
May run on any Road Type! (though yet has to been seen on motorways...)
Heaves and hauls all kinds of cargoes except PAX!
Supports a moderate amount of capacity!


Heavy howling vehicles (eh, hauling that is)
Image
A set of dexter dogs, I mean, a set of tractor trucks, that may haul unreasonable heavy amounts of cargo, but only on heavy hauling tracks, the only one suited for them howling racks.
Only allowed to run on HAUL-able roads!
Expensive, but hauls heavy amounts of cargo!
Does not rime!


Special Features
Diverse Cargo Graphics for up to FIRS 3
Full 2X-Zoom Graphics
Vehicle Performance adapts to Road Surface
Vehicle Upgrades (if bought new)

Post by Kruemelchen » 03 Apr 2018 13:11

In this post is the initial release (version 0.1) attached:

Secondly, I'd like to ask for your help. As with this set I am mainly focussing on off-road vehicles from the Eastern parts of Germany, there is the problem most vehicle manufactures stopped producing after the fall of the iron curtain / Berlin wall. Now, after 1990 I'll make some Mercedes models available like the Vario (small size truck). And I'd like to include Zetor tractors and the big Tatra trucks. However, I'm still in research for other tractors and trucks.
I'd especially like to take in some models from Czech / Slovakia / Poland (though I'd rather let McZapkie handle those in his awesome(!) polroad set...)

So, if there come any (makers of) tractors or (off-road capable) trucks (or even 'SUVs') from, generally, former UdSSR, which you'd like to see included in this set into your mind, I'd be glad you'd share it with me :)

Hello

Yeah, the Dieselameise! Dandle to steer! Saturating 6 hp with a maximum speed of 15 kph. That was car driving! :-)

Tschö, Auge

I admit I have hesitated to draw articulated steering vehicles like the Kirovets :lol:
But I think it would complement the set just well as another expensive import vehicle, even though it looks a bit overpowered and would suit also a heavier set well.
That being said, it clearly reminds me of one of the tractors/crawlers in HEQS though :twisted:

Thank you for your comment, it's great I could remind you of some dear memories :)

Like in this screenshot?

Yes, but without the climbing at all. I grew up in a really flat region. ;-)

What's with a setting to use the set without NRT?

There is no setting. Standard OpenTTD doesn't have the code to recognize NRT-coded NewGRFs.

I thought about making it compatible without NRT as well, but I doubt it would work even if I made all NRT-specific stuff switch-off-able since it has to be compiled by an altered NMLC.

The only thing that could be done as I think of it, is to release a separate non-NRT version. This would be trivial, though. However, I'd rather not obsolete-izise the NRT approach I'm taking.

The only thing I could think of make me doing, is to release a light version with only the street vehicles, which are small cars, multicars and small trucks / buses.

It comes in 3 versions: passenger carrier, van and pickup truck, and can carry 1 ton* ( :lol: )
*while this seems not much, it performs better than other trucks of this set due to being cheap, lightweight and fast.

Would be ok for me when the NonNRT-Set has the one "must have", the Multicar 21/Dieselameise. :-)

Off-road buses ? Good news, i'm bleeding moneys sometimes and have to build dirt, or mud roads. These Mufus won't be much of a use, but it's rather excellent for feeders.

Yes, feeders are the very use-case the Multicars were designed for :)

Meanwhile, here is another off-road van / mini-bus (up to 2t of load or 7 passengers):

A small update:
Reshuffled the list of vehicles I'd like to feature, mostly added off-road buses with capacities for 20~30 passengers.
Here is an example of two buses that are available from the 20s/30s:
Tatra 26 & GAZ 03 bus
Tatra 26 & GAZ 03 bus
early buses.png (32.99 KiB) Viewed 5632 times
(The 'thing' the Tatra has on its roof is actually an open roof, so you may peek inside if you look closely from certain angles)

When I've finished the Tatra bus (still need to draw 1x zoom graphics) some time next week I'll look into releasing a first version of a subset featuring only the GDR/Czech road vehicles of this set.

Meanwhile you may study the following pdf featuring the full vehicle list (of which 1/3 are done), plus some charts for availability range, speed, capacity and the such:
data sheet.pdf

(63.26 KiB) Downloaded 77 times
Edit: Almost forgot, another feature I added are enhancements for available trucks like power upgrades mostly, which are indicated by a + symbol in the purchase list so you can instantly see that a vehicle has been upgraded. Keep in mind that only new vehicles are upgraded, not already bought ones. This also means you may only upgrade already bought vehicles by auto-renew not by auto-replace, but most upgrades are minor anyway ...

Thanks, I may consider adding it as a faster running tracked vehicle from the 70s or 90s or so

Actually the Nodwells are more 70s IIRC, though they would be an excellent addition due to their fast speed and ability to transport anything ;)

I now finished the "out-commenting" of NRT-specific code in a subset of this set, so you may now play with a subset of the trucks of this set in vanilla OpenTTD or patch packs.
Please mind this is just a subset and still contains NRT-specific strings etc.

It features:
  • all cars
  • all multicars
  • all buses and vans
  • tractors for agriculture
EGRoads_0_1.grf
subset of SUV available for vanilla OpenTTD

It's compiled with the NRT nml-fork*, but I tested it with JGRs patchpack 0.22 and it runs just well.

* simply because it failed to compile with the nml version (0.4.4) of my distribution ... :oops:
