Making a very simple addon
« on: October 31, 2012, 10:12:43 PM »
I've noticed while playing Pak128.Britain that when a tube train stops at, say, a regular brick station, it looks rather out of place. The platform covers half of the train and it looks as if the platform goes up to the train window. As we don't have subsurface trains yet, I thought to myself about modifying the narrow gauge stations for the deep level tube trains, and maybe drawing a roundel on it. How should I go about doing this?

You can find the source for Pak128.Britain here: http://simutrans.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/simutrans/pak128.Britain/

That's the short of it.

The long version is well, eh..., rather long.

The thing that worries me though is drawing the roundels. I have no idea how to draw on a PC, I am embarrasingly terrible at it.

Have a look at this thread:
http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=2730.75
on upcomming underground trains and also some WIP stations.


here's some examples for underground stations. mEGa is also the person with the most experience for good underground structure.
