Jezulkim's Station set

Post by Jezulkim » 23 Apr 2006 20:11

If someone remembers, I once drew station sprites for the project generic stations. And now I found them in my sprites folder, and guess what? they got coded :D

Now you can even use my long lost shed!

There are no known bugs in this set.

Comments, questions, praise, etc. are welcome.

Great to see these get released! They were never really forgotten, but as I started building up multiple little stations sets out of P:GS, in the end, I just had those sheds floating around without a station class to put them in. I was considering nabbing them for my own stations I was going to draw, but hoorah for procrastination!

Good stuff, Jezulkim.

They look kinda good, but the station building is kinda strange. Firstly, it splits the platform in two seperate parts, secondly, it uses half a tile next to the station...

it might be a good idea to make it a 2-track-minimum building, so it won't override any other buildings or anything.

Very fine pixel art you got there, Jezulkim!

I like a lot the texture you give to them, using a lot of contrast between dark and bright colors. The roofs in the warehouses are excellent!

I could think of these improvements you can put into it:

> Platforms for passengers should be 2 or 3 pixels in heighth. Think that actual station platforms are usually quite high, so you can enter directly the car without climbing.

> From the passenger platforms, there is one where the upper part of the roof looks the same as the platform floor. Try to avoid it, it looks odd. The other one, in the other hand, looks quite nice :D

> The platforms on each side of the tracks look different because you used different yellow for the dafety line, and the south platform is darker than the north one. I know this might be an effect for the shadow of the roof, but it makes each opposite platform look very different, a uniform texture is reccommended.

> The station building has some more problems... it's hard to do buildings! It seems out of proportion: it looks big compared to the rest of elements. It looks like a small cottage house, but out of proportion. However if the size of the building is correct, you'll have to make it look like it's in the right proportions:

* there is something in the roof... I was sure it was a chimmeny, but now it looks like a panel seen from behind...
If it's a panel, I reccommend you to make it just be seen from front, it's hard to understand... If you still want it seen from behind, you have to make it clearer to see at such a small size: use a color different from the one of the station's walls (that's what makes me think it's a chimmeny)
If it's really a chimmeny, then it's quite big, it gives a sensation that the building is seen from closer than all the rest.
* the windows are too big too. You could use a checkered pattern to make them look as composed of many small parts.
* the heighth from floor to roof is 8, this is too big. Make it 5 or 6.
* the part to the right looks strange, because it's almost in the tracks
* there seems to be no access from the building to the platform.

So the first step seems to be to reduce the building. Once you have done this:
- If it fits inside one platform (1/3 ttd square), you can make it one of the station tiles.
- If it's still bigger, you can make it as Michael Blunk's stations: either be in the central platform between 2 tracks, or be a noon track tile.

Keep trying, I liked this one a lot and want to see more!

Alright, I'll change that.

Hmm, I don't think I'll change that, because it looks good already.

I noticed that too, but I wasn't sure should I change it. I'll do it now

Yes, it's a chimney. I'll make it smaller

* Too big? They are 4x2 pixels.
* Hmhm, yeah it's too big I'll change the height to 6 pixels
* I'll make it a non track tile
* Non track tile station building will fix it

And thanks to everyone who posted here.

Sorry, a double post :x

But, because I wasted your time to the reading of this double post, I have a little surprise (see the attachments :) ).

EDIT: and robotboy, could you make a dos version of this version?

Can you draw a replacement for the road vehicle depot with the metal plate roof you used on the station sheds? It looks very well textured!

Sure, that's not hard.

Do you mean only roof replacement or do I replace the brick walls too?

That's a nice station set, and I'm glad to see it! It almost looks British.

Nice! You did a great job on that station building! :] Now it has the right proportions.

Now that its size is good, it can fit in central platforms. You can make it fit in a 2*1 track tile formation and have it appearing in the platform between 2 tracks.

Entire replacement, I always found the original one awful. I want to add it to a future release of the Combined Roadset if that's allright with you.

That's a strange problem, I don't know what could be the problem.

Hyronymus: Here's your new depot sprites & nfo. They are not coded because I couldn't get the correct xrel and yrel. And of course you can add it, just mention me in the readme/grf description text.
