I've now managed to align the sprites and I've recoloured the roadway, added a few flowers (more or less) and added some texturing. It's not very good as I'm not an artist...

It needs some fencing but I might be able to do that via the newgrf...?

I've JUST noticed that it's also animated (a bit)...well, that's even better.

Ford Transit Mk4 Minibus

Post by kamnet »

Ford Transit Mk4 Minibus

Cruising through the forums today, I came upon a post by Scottishasttdx for a Ford Minibus in EXE file format. I attempted to convert it to a NewGRF using GRDTOGRF, but the resulting file was not playable. I decided to gut the code and use some new one, borrowing the decoded output from Emperor Jake and Buckethead's KITT eyecandy road vehicle. I spent a few hours picking through NFO to try to modify it, and the result is the new Ford Transit Mk4 Minibus, which was produced between 2001 and 2014.

Feel free to try it out. The graphics are OK, maybe not the greatest, maybe a little too large compared to some other sets. I have two versions, one with zero costs for eyecandy and AI play, and one with more realistic costs. The running costs are just about spot on, IMO, but I couldn't figure out how to set a realistic price ($41,000 in 2001), so it is where it is right now and it's okay. It's a bit more expensive than standard OpenTTD vehicles but maybe OK or a bit cheaper than most NewGRF sets with realistic prices. If somebody would like to pick through the NFO and guide me on how to fix it, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise it's OK.

Statistics it's fairly spot-on: 12 passenger capacity, 90 MPH max speed, 2 tons. Available in all climates.

If I do a future update, I may look at NML of M4NFO instead of plain NFO, and I may look to making the cargo-hauling E-350 variant as well.

Anyhow, enjoy this revival.

Jake's Improved Bridge Improver

Post by kamnet »

This is a tweak to Jake's Bridge Improver. All I did was set the speed limit to the highest possible number for most of the bridges.

This is also my first project released using Yet Another GRF Language (YAGL), which was created specifically to help make small tweaks like this. TAR file includes both compiled GRF and YAGL source code. If you want NFO, please click on the link to Jake's original code.

Because Jake didn't change the speeds of those at all, they're not coded. I'll look into working on a similar set that lets players adjust all of these via parameters, but probably won't have anything anytime soon.

I typically use Paint.net on Windows for most of my drawings, and if I need it in 8bpp palette I import it into GIMP and convert to the correct palette. Feel free to take my ideas and make them your own. If you want to see an example of this, though, look at GarryG's object sets. He's created some really nice looking container cranes.
