I bring some new stuff...
Death, the new town names with ñ's is great! Thanks for the quick update.
I also enjoyed the TalgoIII a lot... I was so impacient to see it running
About the cars:
1st row: passenger car
2nd row: mail car
3rd row: passenger car (dining) one every 5 cars
As for the AVE:
1: car with head of train (any: pass/mail)
2: mail car
3 & 4: passenger car, make them alternate: 343434...
5: car with tail of train (any: pass/mail)
Well, time to pass to the news:
I've ellaborated 2 new name lists: one for catalan town names, and one for basque. I don't know basque language at all, and its grammar is totally different to romance languages, so it might be a big mess... but I used more or less common name parts. We'll see...
As for how to code it: the catalan part only has one specific detail: it uses letter Ç in one of the words (Sant Llorenç)
And for basque, I'd need yet another special feature from the coder:
when the end of the prefix and the beginning of the suffix are the same letter, assimilate them so that only one appears (e.g. Azkoi+ibar=Azkoibar; Iratza+aga=Iratzaga)
So there should be 3 name groups, and at the moment of creating one town, a random pre- and suffix is chosen from within one of the 3 groups at random.
And another thing:
I have made a very rough version of the hi-speed tracks. There are no tunnels, road crossings, etc. Only the plain tracks so that we can see them in game. I'm sorry I didn't align all of the sprites... However, if that is too much of a problem, I'll work on it.
