Done
-More fine tunnings
-Toyland climate (no beaches, no sparkling water)
-Fully working on TTDP and OTTD

Hi, i'm here again, what is promised, is debt.

Added
-New coastal for arctic
-Integration with docks and oilrigs

New water v0.1

Done so far

The animated gif does'nt reflect the same "flow" as in game, in fact, it has been a trip to hell doing it at a decent level. I used adobe Image ready, patience and a lot of print screening, ¿any ideas in getting ttd animations to animated *.gif files?

Looks cool. Is this really done with the TTD action colors?

wow! Try out some experiments with GRF encoding and the action colors. Unfortunately the action colors in TTD are just cycling, but maybe you can use them to create a similiar look.

Wow, The water looks great. Just the waves at the beach are gonna wreck my head after 5 min. can you try to get some irregularity in it? maybe not all directions are at the same cicle state at the same time, maybe that would help a bit. or otherwise, make it less, not the full tile length?

But over all, I think this is a fantastic idea. :D

This looks very nice indeed and as mentioned you should considering more variation in the beaches and the waves that hit the beach. If the entire map lights-up the beaches at the same moment you could turn nuts. But keep up the good work!

thx's for your comments

Yes, it's done with ttd action colors, its currently working in ttdp and ottd, without glitches.

I'll experiment with two direction weaves: it would be less brain-wrecking

if the project goes ahead i will ask george to let me create a canal version

i haven't thought in non-syncronized hitting waves on the beach! it would be less uniform, that's a good idea hyronymus, i will experiment on it too.

Just for your information : the canals aren't made possible by George, they are done by eis_os our retired impossible feature dev. :P
George just made the graphics available for it.
You can make your own graphics without asking Georges permission.

About your new water : awesome, only maybe make the breaking waves a bit less white.

If this works out, and I really hope it does, I can just see WhiteHand and his gang of Aussies giving us surfboard grf's. :lol:

I suppose he want to just "replace" water in George's canal graphic

yes, that was my intention

i wish i could! in the windows ttd palette there are only two series of cycling blues, a dark and fast one and a slow and lighter one,which is used in the default water graphics to create the sparkling effect, and I use it to break the weaves.i think it's possible to change the palette. Don't know how.

here it goes the first aproach, (like the screenshot), let's call it New water beta 1 :roll:

it's a grd file, to merge with trg1r.grf
you know... grfmerge newwater.GRD trg1r.grf

Done so far:
-new water weavy files
-bit wider beaches with breaking weaves
-new self-lighted buoy

Todo list:
-export it to artic (semi frozen water?) and tropical (white sand beaches?)
-a lot of experimenting

But GRDTOGRF is not.

GRF files are needed, GRD = boo.
