What is RIS?
RIS is an in-progress attempt to combine all the best-looking Road, Tram and Rail NewGRFs into a single, cohesive set.Where's the source?
I uploaded it to Google Drive
because I can't github, derp. Just ask here if you want to avoid Google, and I'll upload it somewhere else!There's no vehicles for the Wooden Wagonway and Prototype Railway!
You can use the Early Rail Set
with these two railtypes; download ERSw.GRF
for the vehicles, and ignore earlyrail.grf
which contains two tracktypes that serve identical purpose to the Wooden Wagonway and Prototype Railway.Why didn't you include the Early Rail vehicles?
Because the OpenTTD has, after some past events, become very protective of their mods in a way not seen in most other modding communities. All included content in RIS is licensed under GPL v2 and thus I am allowed to use it. Early Rail Set is not licensed at all, and the creator (Izel) has disappeared from the community years ago, so my only option was to make a better tracktype in RIS with my own graphics and leave the vehicles to a file that is still available as of this writing (see above).RIS 0.1 to 0.3 versus 1.0+?
- [+] Spoiler
- What was RIS 0.X?
Recycled Infrastructure Set was a road and tram track set for non-NRT/RATT OpenTTD installations, based heavily on the American Road Replacement Set (thanks, Andrew350!) and Foobar's Tram Tracks (thanks, Foobar!).
See for my plans for version 1.0+, and feel free to give input.
Why make this roadset?!
Because I want nice-looking roads that are compatible with JGR's Patch Pack. Instead of focusing on a region, RIS has the goal of not having graphical glitches like the issue of tram tracks that have a thin stripe of green when leaving the road with default tram tracks or which have roads peeking out from under them like all custom roadsets when used with Foobar's Tram Tracks.
What happened to the futuristic roads?
I've decided to limit RIS to tram tracks with wider grass, to enable compatibility with my favored NewGRF Combination; NARoads and the ARRS version of Total Bridge Renewal Set. The futuristic roads might be added in the future once NRT/RATT is part of JGR's Patch Pack.
This is up for discussion, to be included in a future version of RIS...

0.3 is obsolete thanks to the actions of a certain someone, but the code can be found here. RIS is licensed as GPL v2.
