As if I didn't have enough on my plate ATM, I've dished myself another helping. Playing OTTD with PikkaBird's UK Renewal Set at work today, I was struck by the idea of a TTD styled set for Arctic.
Realizing that aside from the Turbo Train, none of the Arctic locos are actually at home there (Most appear to be African/South American units), I started compiling a list of locos to include. All of the steam locos in the set will be generic with no specific prototype, but the diesels will have to be North American. Most of the steamers do have a distinctly "Canadian" look about them however.
Pikkabird's doing the coding for this set, and for that, I thank him
Good luck with this one, DanMacK! I'm following it
I want it
What can I say? I was born and raised in the snow.
Just one thing to add ...
I know it would be just eye candy but can't you just picture that passenger express delayed again because it is following behind one of these babies clearing off the result of last night's blizzard?
I've seen a steamer pushing one of these while dragging tender and caboose.
At all of about 40mph, it created it's own blizzard which may not be possible in TTDX and Patch, but just having one of these being pushed from depot to depot to depot ... would be almost as neet as Zimmlock's hospital demolition.
For the uninnitiated. that CN logo is painted on an extendable wing which guides the snow well away from the track ... your front yard if you live right next to the line. (animation anyone?)

Quality Work as always mate, you keep plugging away .
And don't forget, you have to draw animations for all the steamers!

Are you sure you'll be able to meet all this targets you keep setting yourself?
I know it sounds stupid but with all this extra workload I think you're spreading yourself as a resource, too thinly (As in too many sets at once).
Anyway, Who you got planned for coding this Set?
 If anyone disagrees with me, feel free to say so.
Oh and will Company Colours be used?

Pikka: "Lakie's a good coder, but before he'll add any feature to TTDP you have to convince him that you're not going to use it to destroy the world as we know it."
Purno: I'm inclined to agree with you on this, I'm rethinking my colouring on the van.
krtaylor: As Akalamanaia pointed out, this set is a generic set using company colours. Plus, since at the moment the USSet doesn't work in OTTD, and CC is handy for multiplayer anyway, this set will fit a niche.
A Snow Plow is actually planned for the Canadian set, not sure if I'll do it for this set or not.
They could fix that....DanMacK wrote:Plus, since at the moment the USSet doesn't work in OTTD...

Wait a minute Did I see repaints mentioned above? There's hope yet!
I agree with you Dan ... I'll play the Canadian set when its done but unless there was a way to get the code to recognize railroad names/liveries (CN, CP , etc ...) as company colors this Artic Renewal Set is the way to go for multiplayer.
As for getting too busy, if I psyched you right, drawing trains is your passion, something you'll never tire of. We thank you for that.
Astath - re the UAC Turbo thing ... Its a good sucker ... er ... candidate ... for a low reliability engine.
PS/EDIT - This TTDX - Company color the whole caboose.
I'm making progress on this set however, and should have something to show soon. Freight cars are almost all done. Pikka said I could use the Polybulk hoppers from the BRMiniset, so these will make their way in, as well as a CC cylindrical hopper.
I'm also considering repainting my USSet tanker in Company colours for this set Look for updates shortly

Completed Sprites so far are below. I may eventually add a different version of the boxcar for paper (and show loading states)
