Landscape designing / post your screenshots here
« on: November 02, 2008, 04:58:13 PM »
Your landscape is boring? Try to build a realistic looking river, with a spring in the hills, winding course through the hill or canyon and estuary mouth in the ocean.

For a "realistic looking" spring, you can use the canals for the ships and artful placed trees.

Please also post your special ideas here! Thank you!

I think it would be nice if there is a sort of public canal (a canal wich looks like a river and is built by public service as city roads).

better : rivers already placed in default maps to have canyons for example.

Post here your questions about how to play Simutrans.

If someone has a question that's because he has a problem about how to play and needs help. ;)

But you are right, it is not 100% correct placed here  :-\ (...) If you would help me.. to find the way of correctnes in Forum. Please switching this topic to the right place...

No problem, nor worry. I'm moving this topic to Simutrans Discussion. For me, this topic is to discuss about ideas for a good landscape.  :)

Thanks for replying, ;D

Heh, I tried creating something like this… The main problem is that terraforming the landscape is quite a lengthy process.

Rivers... yes, everyone wants them :D

Firstly, I like too much maister's landscapes. I valorize a lot sceneries creation, especially if I want to justify the design of my roads. :D

Rivers... yes, everyone wants them :D

It would be nice. I remember Hajo said something about coding a river. I don't know how much it'd be hard to achieve, but I guess ground-objects could act like rivers. Or not?

I would rather like "real" rivers with boats on them. I also remember Hajo talking about climates… and look, here they are!

How about some elevated highways, I stole this idea from the Japanese simutrans page but works well and looks really nice.
But I'm not sure it qualifys as landscaping :D how ever to build em like this you need to elevate the ground level.
The pak i use to get the highways can be found in the Japanese Simutrans site, works well and brings a more realistic feel to the game,
since most city's these days have some sort of highway.

Nice! I would try to build as soon as possible a double elevated highway over a canyon.
I would post the screenshot. "happy"

For all which one not know where you can find the pak128 addons from Japan, please follow following links:

For the highways:
http://japanese.simutrans.com/index.php?Addon128%2FRoadTools%201

For a overview of addons: (please make sure, that you download a addon for your pak (pak64 or pak128 or PAK128.Japan))

Is there a way of a member signing up for an account there? If so, we might save some webspace of forum attachments folder as well as we would reactivate an good "Simutrans service".  :)

Uhuh..... if you replace the passengers with data-packages you got the architecture of a computer-processor  :D  but also... that looks like that, not very nice. (  ;D i miss a Landscape designing)
Oh my guinnes!! How long he need for building and coordinate that. But otherwise to placing a highway over a flat country in this length and make a Line with 1000 Buses is not very very very very time-consuming.

Edit: ok, 1000 Buses  ;D  bawdy
Edit: ok, the holidays are consumed

For my opinion it look also very nice if you build the water-canals engrossed in the landscape. Also very nice to now is that you can build the high voltage power line over a canal. That is to say, if you have a "natural" river which one you would cross over, build on this zone just a man-made canal.

maister, could you host these screenshots here http://www.simutrans-germany.com/files ?

I want to avoid double-posts in this forum as well as I want to limit the consumption of forum bandwidth and attachments space (too limited, unfortunately  :-\).

EDIT: Thanks.
