German Tram Set

Post by RK » 29 May 2005 15:14

I want to make a set of common trams in germany. Therefore i want to replace the monorail with pseudo-tramtracks.

Any ideas which vehicles to use therefore?

Well, what kind of rolling stock do you want?

Unless you use bus sprites as tram trains :wink:

only think you can't do is letting vehicles use both tram tracks and normal roads.

Hey, that's a Hungarian site! :)
However, I haven't got a clue why he didn't put our good old UVs and others in the site. Lemme give you something.

Yes, so many (and even more!) people use the tram in Budapest.

I think these roads can't be added without code modifications and without overwriting the existing tracks. :roll:
The czech trams are quite nice, but I am using a normal gauge of the tracks and I hope the trains can use the normal rails as well.
I just hope that it would be compadible with the US set.
yes it will.

And I like to see the Ai get it's buses blown up so no problem LOL :lol:

Look's great!! I really like the way the road makes a "loop" to create the 2 lines.

BTW, what are you doing about signals? Anything special?

I can't change the signals, because they would be used for all other rail types, too.

E:// Although an abuse of semaphores is possible. :idea:

Is there a listing of what trams will be advalible in this mod? Also, what year would the first tram be advalible for this mod?

I would suggest adding in the trams that were in LA during the 1930s, known as the Pacific Electric Railway. The MBTA also had a few trams in it's rolling stock history. Currently they are still being used on the "T"'s Greenline.
