Well, I have other industry chains in mind like wine, fruit juices, ice,  liquid gas, hardware tools and tobacco thus I take note of your suggestion... :)

I have seen a fruit>wine>market chain in pak64 before. But I'm sure if you undertake to build a wine chain, it will be cool.

The original idea for all these food chains was to centralize the end part of the chain and have the same end consumer for all. Perhaps a mall center or a set of small and medium shops that consume all these products (juice, wine, tobacco, coffe, ice, etc..)

I wouldn't mind seeing a new Shopping Center end factory. The one in the old food chains pakset is huge on the map. I think it is too big. (and along with a new market, I wouldn't mind seeing the other factories. It could be a great improvement, and if not, then certainly interesting)

Looks good. Are you going to add marks for the parking spaces, or are they invisible from this distance?

i would also like very much to see a new end market that all beverage and food products go to just like in the real world.The ones that exsist now only have a few products going to them and most of these dont make sense that they should be going to them.Like furniture going to a supermarket that should be going to a department store instead.



I would also like to see some new industry chains like a textile mill,glass factory,rubber plantation,rubber factory,vehicle parts factory,vehicle parts store,coffee farm to cannery,vegetable farm,nuts farm,fruits farm,produce farm,candy factory,coco bean farm,toy and game factory,tool and dye factory,paint factory,mineral ores mine,metal ores mine,metals factory,gems mine,department store,vehicle plant,aircraft plant,marine craft plant,heavy equipment plant.These are some of the industries that I would like to see.

I would suggest this industry chain

New factories input and output things.
New producers output things.
Old items are existing factories.

I like the idea although I usually try not to create complex chains, but what does the Natural Gas rig produce that can be consumed by the Paper and Concrete factories? I don't see the relationship.

I guess it provides the energy to produce paper from wood. It's the same as for example with a steel factory. Iron ore itself is enough to produce steel, but you need energy in some way to transform it. In the steel factory case it is coal.

IIRC, that's not entirely correct. The coal is needed to get the oxygen out of the iron ore by chemical reaction, not for power supply as such...

For steel mills, either you burn the coal to melt your iron directly, or you have your own power plant. Plus, you process raw coal into coke.

For paper, you need... water?

Natural Gas cam to a Natuarl gas Cleaner!
From there cames to a Gasoline Station there be sells as Fulls for Cars,Trucks and Buses!
The useage in a Gas Power plant it enable!
Natural Gas can be use in a concrete factory to bake lightgasconcrete.

This is a misunderstanding, what we call in german "Gasbeton" means autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) and has absolutely nothing to do with natural gas. Actually you add some aluminium particles to the cement which convert in the mixing process (adding water and other ingredients) into an hydrogen-gas. However this kind of gas is moreless like air (also a gas, chemically).
No natural gas is used in the AAC production.

check this out:
http://www.electroduck.com/simutrans/NGasE.pdf
This document is referring to natural gas as an energy for gas fired furnace (heating process).
Alternatively you can use coal or electricity to get the required temperature so natural gas can be an energy supply but is no raw material for the mentioned factories (paper, concrete).

Paper factories or water bottling plants are always situated close to the spring so you never have a transport from a well/pump to the factory (except pipelines, but we don't have pipes in simutrans ;) )

I haven't started anything from the gas chain. I'm still gathering images for the models.

Hello everyone, I work with Simutrans pak 128 v0.10.0 rev 8024 I try to test many addons that are not contained in it and put in the version. Often a bug comes and you have to delete the addon. What particularly bothers me is when downloadfile does not work and the links are not valid.
Here especially this link again (factory.North Sea Oil Rig.pak.zip) I could still call many other files or show here in the forum.
My question is where can I download these files or who sends me this by mail.
I would like to test them then a version of the whole file to provide.
My mail: hum.waurichen@googlemail.com
