QuoteWhen I want to raise a single heigth slope to double heigth next to something it brings up the "groung not empty" warning.
<simutrans>-config-font-music-pak128.Britain -config -text-skin-text
QuotePerhaps half-height Simutrans should have a, possibly pak-togglable, restriction that railroad tracks can only be laid on the half-height slopes.
Quote from: kierongreen on June 30, 2012, 03:34:32 PMJust for reference trains can climb up steep slopes just not that efficiently. Between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 is about the limit. Once you have rack gears you can go as steep as 1 in 3 or so (in the past rope haulage would have also been used). Given that gradients of 1 in 100 are preferred to me it makes sense to generally have 2 gradients available in simutrans, with penalties (friction) for using the steeper one.

QuoteI think, if there are not way graphics for double slope, then such ways will be forbidden to built on double slopes.
QuoteThis will however require bridges and tunnels to be single slope for the moment imho.
QuoteThere are a graphic bug but thats understandable .. Easily fixable (Pavement slope for city roads)
Quoteeg: Image=images/texture-lightmap.3.0 # nw2,ne1,se2
QuoteEDIT:- yup.. im correct. worked it out.
QuoteGod, it'll mess my mind up a bit to work this out lol...
QuoteIs it possoble to rewrite the order of Image[n] to order of slopes?
Quote from: kierongreen on July 04, 2012, 11:50:47 AMNot easily, and for what purpose? The number is linked to the height of each corner, in standard simutrans it is:sw+2*se+4*ne+8*nwWhen double heights are enabled it is:sw+3*se+9*ne+27*nwThe page you have started on the wiki looks promising, documentation to help others contribute is always welcome
Quote from: Fabio on July 04, 2012, 11:16:14 AMThe problem would be backwards compatibility IMHO. Many paksets will move to double height, but probably not all (especially legacy paksets) and anyway it won't happen out of the blue, so better for the dat files to be either single or double slope.
