I've started coding... it's slow since I'm currently revising for a Mathematics test tomorrow. 8)

Several hours later, and early in the morning, I post my current progress.

Hopefully, I will get some new Arctic road sprites which aren't so 'bright' as well as the rest of the GUI sprites from Born Acorn soon.
Also I need to solve a few overrides and conflicts, nothing too complex (I hope).

Attached is a screen shot of how they currently look (with the only 2 overrides working). ;)

[edit] Might be a while before I find time again to finish it off though.

Yes... and for bridge overrides always remember that the road set is lower in the newgrf.cfg than the bridge.
Otherwise it won't override the graphics (obviously). :)

And now I can focus on learning to cook properly now. ;)

If there's enough demand, I'll do a Japanese landscape version, an AUSLand landscape version, and a right hand side version, depending on respective demand, and Lakie's free time and willingness to code such ventures or not.

Downloaded. :D It works, but there are compatibility issues when you're using multiple bridgesets. I like using PB's viaduct with Purno's new bridges, because it replaces the wooden bridge, the most useless of them all. But adding UKRoadsetw.grf gives some odd graphics. Fortunately, the speed limit is still 128km/h.

I think this may be due to the bridge sprites being part of the road set. I can, for example, use the US Road set without problems because both bridge sets have sprites for US roads.

I don't think using two bridge sets works, as both have wooden bridge replacements.

However, may I suggest fiddling with the order of the bridge sets and the UKR? It can sometimes produce wildy different results.

I don't know if you noticed, but Pikka's Bridge technically conflicts with Purno's bridges.

The grf assumes the user is 'clever' enough not to do such conflicts...
I guess it could be fixed by an internal rearrangement of the grf.

At the moment I have the GRFs prioritised like this: New Bridges, Brick Viaduct, and UK Roads. If I switch New Bridges and Brick Viaduct around, I will lose the viaduct and its 128km/h speed limit because now New Bridges has the higher priority. There's not much for me to do, unfortunately, because the UKR needs the highest priority in order to have the correct bridge sprites.

Yes, because both have replacements for the wooden bridge. But give the viaduct a higher priority, and everything works exactly as I want it to. There is no graphical or functional conflict, which is all that matters to me, really. I guess I should thank Pikkabird and Szappy for not coding in the disabling of other GRFs when there's a conflict. ;)
------
Going a bit off-topic now...I think that people should avoid having their GRFs disabling themselves or disabling other GRFs whenever possible. Give warnings, sure, but don't disable them, because many people like mixing and matching. There are some sets I'd like to use together, but can't, due to this.

Well, I've changed the order and fixed a bug.
So hopefully that should help you out.
I've attached a new version, 1.0a. :P

If you want a debate over whether grfs should try to check for each other start a new topic for it. ;)

First post's file updated to newest version.

Also, good news is on the horizon, as we have permission to make Ausland and Japanese landscape compatible roads.

Woo, yay, this is the best roadset ever! Download it! I insist*!

* This post not sponsored by Born Acorn Industries, honestly.

It does look pretty good though. I shall try it in my next UKRS game. ;)

I've found another bug. The yellow steel suspension bridge does not have the correct road sprites. It is the only one that doesn't, and disabling PB's viaduct doesn't solve the problem.

Could be due the fact that bridge isn't replaced in my bridge set either.
Dunno for sure tho.

Most lightly indeed, I assumed all sprites were replaced, but apparently not.
I will fix sometime soon. :P
