It's really nice! It has a tiny "caribbean" feeling, but goes along nicely with the land tiles.
Keep up the good work!

Hmm... perhaps I'll do a few different versions then. Caribbean feeling is not what I'm looking for. Thanks for the input! 😊

not to be impatient, but can we see some trains? ^^
Mac OS sucks.

What are you looking for? (if I may so ask) Something more like Big Sur (deeper blue)?

I don't know... it's really hard to make a seamless water texture with no animation that looks good. I've been using photos such as this one as a reference:

I've also tried some different things...

And while I think that the bluer water looks more like Transport Tycoon, somehow I find the greener water to look more realistic. Arrrgh... All these decisions! :shock:

You should be impatient - after all, I've been working on this project for +10 years. ;) Anyway, I realised that there are several incredible train sets available. For example, here's a picture of my terrain combined with a train from the Czech Train Set:
Sinnpool Bridge Transport, Nov 4th, 1930.png
(4.84 MiB) Not downloaded yet
These existing sets look so darn good that I feel that I need to do something really different to justify releasing another set. And that's what I've been working on the entire summer. :) I'll try to upload a video as soon as possible. However, my idea is to release this project in parts, and the terrain will probably be the first part. :)

Again, thank you all for your support!

(Green vs blue water)


And while I think that the bluer water looks more like Transport Tycoon, somehow I find the greener water to look more realistic. Arrrgh... All these decisions! :shock:
Well, do you prefer a realistic or a TTD-esque look? Personally, while the greenish feels more realistic indeed, I prefer the blue because it fits the game more. But it's hard to tell when it's just water. How would an island look, for example, with green vs blue water surrounding it? It all ties together to create the bigger picture.

Your american locos are so good, and there's barely any american mods for the game besides NARS. Nobody has really made a 32bpp US trainset, which is why I'm so excited for yours!

Hmm... I think the goal is to do something different. I mean, I've played the game to death with NARS, FIRS and so on, sets that all feel like the belong in Transport Tycoon. I want to go in the opposite direction and break the rules. :) While I love that OpenTTD stays truthful to the original, it's still, by far, the best transport simulator I've played, and thanks to all the dedicates souls of this community, the possibilities are endless. :)

Thank you so much, it really means a lot to me. I can't wait to let you guys try it and hear what you think :)
