QuoteA Glimpse of Fabio Gonellas workTo get an impression of the incredible amount of work involved with Fabio Gonella's new rail project, have a look at this commit*. It is only one of many of similar extend. Not only did he have to pain a large number of images, but also cut them into appropriate tiles, take care of front and back images (something that is displayed before or behind a passing train) and write extensive dat files defining how the images are assembled by the game engine.*A commit, in a version control system, is a bundle of changes to the previous version. The presentation of it on github shows what was added and what was removed.(gs)#simutrans #simutranspak128
Quote from: Fabio on November 26, 2012, 11:47:44 PMThank you sdog! Of course the golden age of truss bridges was in the first third of 20th century. Iron bridges are rarer in recent times, but not unheard of.This bridge was opened in Strasbourg in 2010: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-11969371This one (road) was built in 2005 in upstate New York: http://bridgehunter.com/ny/niagara/prospect-street/ I favor a consistent look over engineering accuracy. This bridge is to replace the 200 km/h one, so it better look similar, but somehow upgraded, on steroids.Also bridge design is strictly limited in Simutrans. Most modern steel bridges are a single through arch. Here we can't reproduce them, or they look ridiculous with a 1 tile span.
