Hi - looks like you guys are working on some excellent improvements. Actually i can't wait seeing them and tried downloading the latest.
First i noticed there is no useable package in the nightly builds website - just a 3 months old openpak128.
Anyway, after finally finding the code at [size=78%]http://sourceforge.net/p/simutrans/code/HEAD/tree/pak128/[/size]
i installed simutrans-makeobj, and created the package. But then i do get an error when starting my simutrans ... sidewalk not found ...
anyideas on what's wrong ?
EDIT - looks like some errors slipped unnoticed when running the pakmak.py
See make object memory issue onhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/6822043/
Sorry, just used the outdated makeobj from ubuntu ... had to manually add the latest.
Stations look great, can't wait them to see them in stable.
I don't know whether it's the right place, but looking at the new softslopes it still seems to be fairly hard - it's gonna make the games a lot more realistic and challenging - especially as it's now very hard to find leveled areas on the map.
With the experimental tool
* i'm missing a button to raise the soil up to the next real level.
* Some menu buttons are not drawn - only get a default slope button for the old full slopes
* Is it intended that NO mode of transport can access regular slopes? (checked rail, tram and street)
* should two soft raises in the landscape equal a full step ? - why can't i connect a bridge to a 2* 1/2 increment ? - it says can't build to center of the slope ...
* for sure i can't use regular slopes for train tracks in future, but i should be able to build bridges from it ..
* will i be able to start a bridge from a 1/2 raised area (random maps will create these areas too ! - will they only be 1/2 high or 1 high and only be able to end on equal level or +-1 ?
* e.g. in the Swiss Scenario there are existing bridges - now the default slope is only the soft slope and bridges are flat as well - even though they're still connected there is clearly something wrong ... the ramps end on 1/2 level while as the main part of the bridge still cross the rivers correctly
