Fake diagonal Airport

Post by RSpeed tycoonfreak » 03 Apr 2006 16:37

I have an idea but i don't know how good or bad the idea is.
I know that it's too hard to make diagonal runwaysbut i was thinking about a fake diagonal airport witch you can look like the way you want it and the size you want it.
I use the freight container staition and harbour set often to make my airports look bigger and more realistic.
If you had something called airport between where all the new stations are, like the freight container staition and harbour set and just add that to an real airport. I think that would look really cool. I made some sprites allready.
There are some things wrong with it like the fact that I used the shadowed grass and not the normal (I just dicoverd that when the 2 hours of drawing where done :? )

But what I would like to know is if it would look nice and if it's worth the hard work because someone has to code this And I can't code this kind of things because I'm still learnig it and all i can is code buildings.

EDIT: (11 April 2006:) Here is the grf:

EDIT: (again) (10 May 2006:) I know its fast but within a month version 2 is done!
There where so many improvements in my head that I couln't wait to draw. :D
Thanks for the coding Juzulkim! :D

the Airport looks really cool!
I also use the harbour/container freight to make my stations look more realistic. I looked at the pictures at your website. Very cool man! have you coded them yourself? How did you get those airports? The one with the inverted arc as a roof kinda looks like Washinton Dulles. Is it possible to download somwhere?

I really wonder why people keep asking about that airport... :shock:

I'm making good progress with my diagonal airport.:D
It's starting to look like a real airport.
But I need to change some things like you can see at the screenshot.

and the point of this is?
If it cannot be used then why are you making it, oh wait, it _is_ RSpeed, ah well. Waste your time, be my guest. :D

Isn't that a bit harsh Weirdy?

I think he's been round enough to KNOW it's not possible to do it yet - but we're all allowed to dream aren't we?

Fair enough his reputation is a little tarnished, but come on - give him a break?

OTOH RSpeed, I see his point. How will these be used? For a start I see no terminal? Or will it be an extension of the existing airport.

Nice to see you've drawn a diagonal runway - even if it is impossible?

EDIT: Though the way you've drawn the diagonal lines, they look wobbly. I see what you've TRIED to do, to keep em in line, first four pixels then a skip to the right and a further four pixels to form one line - then the same mirrored for the next line. This gives the impression of a wonky or drunk line painter :D.

Still. I don't see what's wrong with trying...

Your reply doesn't add anything but a flame bait to this topic, Weirdy. If you choose a more constructive way noone would probably have complained about it. Giving constructive feedback is mentioned in the rules too, btw.

I think it looks good, just hand me the sprites when they are ready and I'll code them.

Here are the sprites, but I'm not sure about the colours because I converted it to BMP format once by accident, but if they are coded I still can do some small changes at the colours.

Thanks already!! :D :D :D

You need to separate the ground and building sprites.
To get a good answer, ask a Smart Question. Similarly, if you want a bug fixed, write a Useful Bug Report. No TTDPatch crashlog? Then follow directions.

I think that is an interesting idea, but honestly, I don't see it as very practical. Ordinarily, when I build airports, they are very very cramped as to room. I hardly have enough space to put in the airport as it is, let alone an extra nonfunctional runway. But there's no harm in playing with it, I am sure you will get some takers.

I would like to here-by retract my earlier statement. RSpeed, it looks very good, but as Krtaylor said, it is rather impractical. However, contuinue with the graphics and someday in the close future you could be as good as Michael Blunck.
