[Rel] Auto Industry! Release Version 2.5 - 06/21/07

Post by Plastikman » 07 May 2006 21:49

release version:2.5 Get it at AMI!


OLD:

Ok this is a big ass WIP there is a lot going on here so bare with me.

there are a few differant industry mods going atthe moment. this one is a collaboration of a few differant people working behind the scene.

So this might be the birth of an extention of the US set it might be a one shot deal.. Here we go. First project,

Auto Plant Cycle:

If it is not mentioned, it has not changed in game. Follow along if you can.

Oil Wells:They remain unchanged, You can still sell Oil to Refineries to make Goods or sell oil to Chemical plants to make Plastic Pellets

Oil Refinery: Unchanged.

The chemical plant: it will now need Oil, it will produce Plastic Pellets these can then be sold to the factory to make goods or to the Auto plant to make Autos when combined with Steel.

Steel plant: is unchannged, it makes Steel From Ore combined with Coal. you can still sellSteel to the factory to make goods. You can now also sell Steel to the Auto plant and when combined with Plastic Pellets you will Make Automobiles.

Factory: Now accepts Plastic Pellets or Steel to produce goods. Plastic Pellets and Steel do not have to be combined. Each one will make goods

Auto Plant: All new industry. It will Require BOTH Plastic Pellets and Steel to make Automobiles to be sold at Auto Dealers and Scrap Metal to be sold to Scrap Yard to be recycled into Steel .

Auto Dealer: if this works, it will Pop up randomly in towns and accept new Automobiles, It will also idependantly Produce Junked Used Cars to be sold to the Scrap Yard to be recycled into Steel.

Scrap Yard: New Industry, It accepts Scrap Metal OR Junked Used Carsto be recycled into Steel .

Some new cars will now be needed for this modifcation. Because of vehical limits, we will try and double up cars, for example, Grain hoppers will now also carry Plastic Pellets.

a few details are not yet worked out and this can all change without notice.

*** well these changed.. You now have to take the Plastic Pellets and Steel To an Auto parts Factory To be converted to Auto Parts And taken to the Auto Plant, Junk cars are still not built Maybe never will be.

Very cool project you got there! :D This would turn a simple scenario into a much more complex one requiring more stuff to be transported, which would mean more use of out of your freight trains. 8)

but the best part is, you don't HAVE to build autos. you can use the new industries to just make "goods" ...

quick Wip update! we are in the auto buissness!
we are 1/2 through the flow chart.
Shaun and I have been burning the candle for this one.

It looks like the BR set will have train cars for this mod also.

we need the wiki back for ID#'s

i have seen in the past the following:

new cargo:
scrap metal 22 name="SCRAP "
<variable name="id" size="1">22</variable>

autos 17 name="AUTOS "
<variable name="id" size="1">17</variable>

plasticpellets 21 name="PLASTIC "
<variable name="id" size="1">21</variable>

those have been used for these items. i am re-using them again.
anyone know of any conflicts with this?
we need a master list.

No, but you need to use our chemical plant to get plastic pellets. i wont overwite any in game stuff if i can avoid it.

the cargos might kill other mods. i dont know what has been used yet.

Well it is past proof of concept, it works! it still needs a lot of work. but, everything we wanted is working. i have a building that randomly spawns ( and unspawns) in town that buys autos and sell junk. we have a plastiks factory that needs crude oil. we have an auto factory that makes cars and scrap left overs. a junk yard that recycles all the junk back into usable steel.

there are still a few things to fix.

1. how to change the 1 to 1 ratio on goods manufacture. 20 junk = 20 steel. (HELP!)

2 spawning of auto plant what controlls how often it spawns. (i think it is if it makes passengers...also and adds to the towns growth)

3 beta testing further....

4 graphics overhaul. shawn has done a great job so far.

5... i need more coffee.....

little bit offtopic..

plastikman, in which way do you get the cost-values? i have problems with my vehicles because of that. they are to cheap or to expensive.. do you know an easy way to set the cost-values?
i did all models/renderings/textures myself. no conversions.

seelenquell.pytalhost.com has been reactivated from 16/07/28 till 18/05/31.. now it´s deactivated. at least there..
new URL is: http://seelenquell.125mb.com

you cant set it to a specific value. in addition, the inflation in this game is crazy. you get a cost index that you can pick, i base mine on about what other trains i or Chris has made and look at my excel sheet of locos and guess in what range of other engines it should cost. once you are making money, it it really makes no difference. i guess we could figure out the mathematical formula.

On topic:

the auto industry is in full play beta.. have a new mock wips of the dealers in game. thought i might share..

i feel like this is where is waldo. can you find all 3 dealers?

no, you cant see #3 it has scaffolding around it, it is bring built

it doesn't need any exe hack, I made High-tech Electric System by no editing the exe, it looks like the same as the High-tech system, but I think it could be a good idea, to make gas-stations. They require cars, passengers and oil to produce passengers.

but anyway it takes veeery long time to do that
