Moderator: Graphics Moderators
Dave Worley has very kindly agreed to be my coder and I will draw all the graphics myself (most of which were used in the former British Tram Set from which I have now withdrawn) but there I there are some trams that need drawing for the future as well some Blackpool ones.
Edinburgh Trams will probably get in here when I found out which trams they will be using, construction works on the route is expected to begin some point this year.
Do not expect development to go at lightning pace since both Dave and I have exams to do first
I intend to do all drawing myself but requests will be considered (so long as they are in the UK - this does not include Eire (Ireland)).
[Edit 10th May 2007, 16:40] A website has been created. Please note that this is still under construction but the basics are there (apologies for the HTML )[/edit]
[Edit 11th June 2007, 16:20] Poll added.
[Edit 7th August 2007, 20:32] Poll removed, set renamed to UK Road Vehicles Set.
[Edit 9th October 2007, 20:17] ukts_r1.grf released. Download found here.
Becuause, although I can't be bothered to trawl through the other tramset thread and find who made each graphic, I'd much rather have an everyone-driven project.
Edit: You see, you people seem to be trying to brush something under the carpet, in a manner of speaking.
Edit edit: Ah, I've just read the logs, and I think I get it now. I'm not one for retracting statements though, so I'll let this stand. You don't need to regard it though. I'm happy with everything, I hope I can have some awesome UK trams before too long.
Kirk and I had a bit of a falling out and I am taking this oppurtunity to breathe a bit of life into the set and I have checked with Henry and he doesn't mind me doing this so this is what I am doing.

Pikka: "Lakie's a good coder, but before he'll add any feature to TTDP you have to convince him that you're not going to use it to destroy the world as we know it."
At last a bit of coherence.
Ameecher intends to draw nearly everything for himself (which isn't that much different from the original anyway - Gavin had pretty much drawn everything bar the Sheffield Supertram and a couple of other views).
He's finalising what will be included over the next few days but trams from the following areas are included:
and many more, including Edinburgh and perhaps the inclusion of some other places as trams pop-up into use around the country again.
Even more exciting, Davey is learning to code.
Any chance of doing the Docklands LRVs (if that's their proper name)? These'd be neat to run on their own dedicated tram line.
The fact is that in Britain the number of track types is rare. I can personally only think of these:
- Unelectrified Standard Gauge
- 25kV AC OHLE Standard Gauge
- 1.5kV DC OHLE Standard Gauge
- 750v DC Third Rail Standard Gauge
- Unelectrified Narrow Gauge
- Docklands Light Railway
- Once it's finished, the CTRL which will be a High Speed rail link.
The Tyne and Wear Metro runs on a system similar to the old Woodhead route - 1.5kV DC OHLE... I think.
There's not much other than that! If Oskar increases the number of track types to 8, we're laughing.
All we need then is more IDs
Alas, this is off-topic.
(NOTE: I realise that a lot of trams run on heavy rail style lines - the Manchester trams do, and so do the Mid Mets... And indeed they utilise former heavy rail infrastructure (The Manc trams are even built to be able to use the platforms of former British Rail stations), but this isn't available for display in TTD because of the scale of trains to roadvehicles).
I do wonder if there's a track slot spare if we can't make some sort of rail system so that the trams would be available on them too... I dunno. Just a thought.
For instance, we (should) all know that in real life you can't just plonk a SH'125 on a track built in 1923 for a Collett Pannier Tank engine, you have to upgrade the line. But we don't, because that'd be too over-the-top.
I think having just the existing tram tracks is fine for now. It makes it easier for all the people out there that aren't rail buffs.

I may ask permission for that at a later date Lewis, however I am keen to do all the drawing myself so that there is a common style.

I am reluctant to include the DLR and Tyne and Wear metros at the moment because they are all more like their own seperate rail networks, they don't operate roads at any point. I may consider it at some point but that would mean overwriting slots that are already used by train sets. It'd be complicated.
Thanks for the support guys!
