Hi all,

the problem is this :


It's not that these buildings are ugly (they aren't very nice) but in very dense cities : there are ONLY these buildings.
Plus : I find level 60 too small for the highest buildings.

the project : create many new buildings for pak128 wich have a higher level than 60 BUT there must are various building to have the highest level.

I have already begun this project with these buildings :


http://img1.imagilive.com/1008/famille.PNG

I'm making snow view for these buildings.

the highest level is 80.

Post here your city buildings and ideas !

I'm new right now to this, but to make things a bit more interesting:

You know how you have the small construction site, the small reddish ground and yellow consttruction vehicles which comes before every new building, it could be changed into one which has cranes constructing something like a half or 3/4 unbuilt (probably a concrete skeleton) building as a construction site, before these new better buildings appeared.

I know this is a simulation, but it look a still unrealistic to have those small construction sites for these huge good-looking buildings...

Anyway, it was just a thought...

Added:
To make the game interesting, you can also add both construction sites: smaller one for smaller buildings, bigger one for larger buildings (skyscrapers, etc...)

You're right but I can't change this, it's a programmer's work ... but Prissi is to busy at the time.

Instead of changing ST, I can make buildings with crane but they doesn't necessary appear before high buildings and it would stay a long time before replacing by a complete building.

Sorry I can't do anything for you  :-\

The problem is that there is only one graphic that has to fit all building levels. From a small one story bungalow to huge skyscrapers - and I think a small construction site for skyscrapers is less baffling than a huge one that only produces a small building. So IMO the current way isn't that bad.

There should be various construction sites to be chosen by the addon creator. We would be sure that there will be the good construction site.

IMHO that's just a waste of time and resources. Everything like that will make simutrans a bit bigger and a bit slower - and a bit harder to maintain. I doubt this is worth it.

That's because it's just what it is: a Quick Reply box. For full features you have to use the normal "Reply" link - there you get all smileys, attachments, etc.

I don't like quoting but I have to do that - dark buildings on the left of city hall are nice (not beautiful, only nice), also grey buildings with stripes on edge (on the right end of picture) but light grey buildings with blue ?windows on the right of city hall are very ugly.

First called buildings look similar to this skyscraper

It's the building that will replace current RES_SNFOS_02.

Do you prefer the two on the left or the two on the right ? (the difference is between each window).

Don't worry about the roof, it's not finished ;)

The most important are resistance to earthquakes and safety of the buildings.
Which do you think is more resistent to earthquakes and safer and secure ones (I'm talking here fire escapes, flooding and other emergencies)?

But if they are considered a reality, I think all of them are beautifull architectural types and also safe and secure ones.

So, I'll choose the 2 ones on the left side. :) Anyway, I think it should be your choice because it's your work.

So it will be the two on the left  ;D

it's ready ;)

There are two buildings, one with level 80 (current max level of all SNFOS high buildings) and one with level 40.
Each one has two orientations and a snow graphic.

You see, it's not very nice in architecture, it's almost the mirror effect on south windows ...  ::) (just a sky picture found with my friend google  ;D ).

Why do they have a shadow at south and east sides if there's nothing that may cause it? It only happens in first floors..

It's just a decoration, witheout this the buildings looks naked. There are similar shadows on Skyline, it'sure that it won't be realistic if there is no building befront  :-\  but it makes the building much more realistic if you place it in a big city  :)
