Simutrans Help Center / Make a real city in Simutrans
« Last post by emirkir on Today at 08:37:11 PM »
Hi! I got the idea of making my hometown in Simutrans. I've seen others do like New York and stuff like that but I wanted to make it "real", every street and similar houses from the reality by using Google Streetview. But, how do I start? Do I need to make a heightmap of the city first or is it some other way I could go?
NOTE: I have never made something like this before and I would like to explore Simutrans to its edges... (Is this even possible?)

Feel free to help me out by giving different strategys and a headstart! I would really appreciate that!
I'll provide maps and other stuff down below.

(EDIT) City name: Östersund, Sweden. Link for map on Google:,14.6246914,13.82z
Link for PDF-maps on Google Drive. Note that you can edit them to make them better... LINK BROKEN! I'LL UPLOAD A NEW ON MAY 21:st!
GOAL FOR THIS: I would like to play around with my hometown in game and to have a project on-going.

Please correct me if I posted this in the wrong part of the forum...
I think we need a scroll bar for which we have small screens.

As it is macros are being abused quite a lot. I would argue that many cases macros are currently in use should be replaced with separate source files and compiler switches for improved maintainability.

I thinkt the problem is that the Makefile checks whether USE_BLA is defined, and not that it is defined and set to something positive. Thus it will compile with eg freetype if 'USE_FREETYPE=0' is set
This makes sense, so should we revert my commit and change the Makefile?
Praises / The Network Map is Magic!

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." (Arthur C. Clarke)

For me, the Simutrans network map is magic! There are lots of good things in this game, but it never ceases to amaze me that I can build curvy, complicated routes and they get turned into a beautiful Beckesque diagram. I can never quite get my head around the maths behind it.

Thank you to all the developers who gave up the time to write the network map and to those who keep the game going so that it's still usable. The game would work perfectly well without it, but it really does add something special to the playing experience.  8)
Yes and no. I mean with white backgrounds and blue buttons with white test. Like the forum now.
Ok, I'll work on it.

I doubt speed would ever be a problem. To put it in perspective a Java based dat parser can process several thousand records in well under a second, and that includes parsing, export, import and update.
I was actually comparing with things like a VBA script.

How does one bundle multiple records in a single file?
Yes, this feature is still not available as I could not think of a solution yet.
And why do not you change the color of the graphics box?.  ;) edit.

The color of the graphics box is difficult to change.

It depends on the contrast to the lines and not every color is displayed correctly.

The color is set in theme tab file.
Code: [Select]
# Background color of charts.
gui_color_chart_background = #B6B0CC
