IDK if this is the right place for this, but here goes.
I'm having some issues with - views. I used the template on the graphics site, and my converted TTD vehicles clipped, even though they lined up perfectly in the tempate.
I found out why here:http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=948.0
I recieved some advice from VS, but I'm kind of confused.
Are the side views artificially lengthened? Simutrans can work with true sqrt(2) length on diagonals...I don't think so. They line up with in length with the template on the graphics site. The template I used could be off. I've already re-aligned the vehicles to it. Guess the only way to know is to code it and see.
32 pixels = length 8 and 28 pixels= length 7 in the - views, right?
I made a new template, but it still has the same issue as the one on the graphics site.
My real question is how do you get the - views to not clip? I noticed Vilvoh's add-on vehicles seem to work right, but I don't know their lenghts.
