underseas tunnel with slope
« on: October 14, 2009, 12:38:33 AM »
hello everyone..

The new feature "overseas tunnel" was another cool thing in recent version Simutrans.
But, when i playing around with this, i found that underground view with water (sea) being unrealistic.
The railway track was laying down straightly above the sea level. Commonly, an underseas tunnel will be built under the seabed. I refers to the famous "Strait of Dover" tunnel between England and French , wikipedia link

So i have an idea to make slopes underground before the sea tiles.
Please see images below.

straight track above sea level

what about slopes?

alternative #1

alternative #2

alternative #3

Or, maybe someone else got better ideas?

Just an idea,...  ;D

You can built tunnels under sea in recent nightly versions. Furthermore, you are not allowed to built tunnels through the open sea, otherwise this will be a bug.

Please check a newer nightly.
