I do already have some sprites coded, such as for Philadelphia, Boston, etc.
I am completing as much sprites as i can for now.

Note that the blue color is transparent in the game. Arranging your sprites in a format similar to this will greatly aid someone in coding them. Additionally using and having a palette applied to the files is a big help too. :)
Thank. Carefully draw, not in a hurry :)

How to get this to work properly? This DB set crossing just disappears when the train is approaching (pic#1)... awwww



and the same happens when I download different crossings grf (pic#2)

My best guess is that because the DB set crossing sprites are not implemented via railtypes, but through simple sprite replacement, the road type overlay gets drawn on top of them. There's no way to fix that unfortunately, not until we get an updated version of the DB Set, which will happen...eventually ;)

In the meantime, you will have to use another trackset which supports railtypes in order to get custom crossings like that to work with NRT.

If you like the DB Set-style crossings you can use Swedish Rails or Finescale Standard Gauge and 3rd rail.

Hello all! In celebration of NRT's official inclusion in OpenTTD, today I've released RattRoads 0.4.0!

This update brings quite a few quality improvements to the set, including:

- New GUI icons
- City road sprites for all road types
- Improved oneway/closed road sprites
- Drive-in station road surface sprites for all road types
- Some graphical improvements to sett and basic asphalt roads
- Removal of base tile replacements (No longer requires OpenGFX in order to look correct)
- And more!

Download is available in the first post of this topic or on the online content, but remember this set is only compatible with OpenTTD-master-20190502 or later! This NewGRF will not work in 1.9.x, you MUST use a recent nightly!

=========
Known Issues
=========

- Tunnel sprites are broken for some roadtypes
This will be fixed once NML is updated; for now just ignore it!

==========
Future Additions
==========

Next on the agenda for RattRoads is to include climate-specific and possibly date-dependent sprites for roadtypes, complete with snow drifts in arctic and desert roads in tropic. There may also be more features depending on what, if anything, gets added to NRT in the future. Stay tuned!

Please let me know if anything is broken in this set, and if you encounter any trouble with OpenTTD make sure you report it on GitHub! Enjoy! :)

Hello
Found a bug in the UI of RATT 0.4.0. The functions to build a road tile in SW to NE and SE to NW are inverted for (at least) dirt road (40 km/h), paved road (48 km/h) and basic asphalt roads (order of icons is inverted in comparision to icons for tramway contructions). In the screenshot one can see the activated icon and the icon at the cursor. The road will be built like the icon at the mouse cursor shows it.

Additionally I want to ask if you tend to implement roads where the towns will not be able to build houses on. I.e. for dirt roads, improved and modern asphalt roads and highway, maybe with parameters to (de)-activate it.

Tschö, Auge

Are you by chance using an older nightly of OpenTTD? This looks like a problem that was fixed a few days ago; try updating to the latest nightly and hopefully it should be fixed :)

Highways should already forbid house placement, as for the others I wan't planning on it but if that's something which is desired I can look into it :) However, in light of peter and neils' comments in the NRT thread I may have to reserve judgment on what to do with town roads until I see the final NewGRF specs. It appears a few things were added which could be interesting :)

You are right. I tested with the nightly of 2019-05-04 and in the compiled nightly (master 2019-05-11) the error is gone. Thank you for guiding me.

I read it and I'm also waiting for the actualised documentation in the wiki.

Hello,

I've released a minor update (0.4.1) which fixes a graphical error with the bridge overlays for dirt road and basic asphalt road. This fix is available both on Bananas and the first post of this topic. As always, please let me know if you encounter any more issues.

Thanks! :)

Thank you very much for this road set. I'd just want to see the dirt roads in a lighter colour, because the brown eGRVTS horses have almost exactly the same brown colour as the road and become almost invisible.

Some 2-horse hopper wagons. There are brown horses, dark grey horses, and light grey horses. Can you see the brown horses?

Hi leifbk, sorry for the delayed response. I was finally going to reply yesterday to say I would look into fixing that. Unfortunately my house was broken into and my computer was stolen (among other things), so all of my work is gone except for the material I've uploaded here or saved on a thumb drive, which is unfortunately only a small part of it all :(

Needless to say I don't think this is something I'll be able to look into for a while :(

How terrible! I feel really sorry for you. I wish you the best with your real-life matters, which of course are more important by far.

Kind regards, Leif.

Thank you, once the 'real life' stuff gets taken care of and the dust settles I'll be back in the market for a computer, so eventually I may get back to this. For now though I need a new vehicle, so in the meantime anyone feel free to pick up where I've left off or use it for your own works :)

I would be glad to make RattRoads part of the Recycled Infrastructure Set, but I'm having an issue that nobody seems to notice... viewtopic.php?f=68&t=85901
