Quote from: Ves on May 31, 2015, 02:14:02 PMThis raise a question:On the early trains, are we to use the system the pak.britain use, where they have dedicated brake cars transporting nothing as a must after every trainset,or shall we have the original real life braked cars, which in principle means double up on all cars in the depot, and if, should there exist rules to force combinations?The real life rules of the use of braked/nonbraked cars where as I understood, very simplyfied, that every 6'th car should have braking possibilities.
Quote from: Ves on May 31, 2015, 04:49:19 PMI found a book written for the 50 year anniversary of the Swedish railways, and it has a chapter on the history of braking. I don't have the book in front of me now, but as I understood it, the first many years there was a guy in every braked car and on some kind of signal (didn't figure out how the train driver communicates with the brakers), they span the braking wheels around making their cars brake. Every 6'th car has to be brakeable. Some different kinds of automated braking through some use of wire are also talked about and then is the vacuum brake and the high pressure air brake.
Quote from: Junna on August 30, 2015, 10:05:38 PMDoes that mean you intend to introduce actual early steam engines and earlier rolling stock?
Quote from: Ves on August 30, 2015, 10:25:21 PMYes! Although I don't know how to paint them yet. Maybe go for rendering?Incidentally I already painted some of the earliest G-cars, showed in the other thread.
Quote from: Junna on August 31, 2015, 12:28:34 AMRendering certainly makes it easier, but I don't know how you would maintain consistency. If you do go this way, I recommend it might be easiest - for consistency of the visual appearance - for you to make a basic model, render this and then draw on it to add details and touches. It will make it easier for you to maintain a consistency of scale and appearance for steam engines, which are notoriously quite complex in their shape by their nature, without compromising the visual consistency.
Quote from: Ves on August 31, 2015, 11:09:32 AMFrom the other thread:Do you meen that i should model a given vehicle and then paint over it?I find that its the shadows that makes the most difficult part (the shadows is what makes something looks like something and not just a color 'blob'), would it be possible to render only the shadows on an alpha channel which i could import to GIMP and then I could paint underneath?
Quote from: Vladki on October 28, 2015, 10:14:54 PMI have noticed that Se_Ro5_1930/1940, Se_R2_1980/1990 (restaurant cars) have 0 capacity. I think it should be a few people.
QuoteThe 1940 version even lacks the catering level.
QuoteThere is no mail coach available in 1960's, DFo33_1950 is only available as upgrade from something older.
QuoteThere are three vehicles in mail section that do not have any image. Thus one cannot find what it is.
Quote from: Ves on October 28, 2015, 10:52:55 PMGosh, I named them wrong, they should be called Ro3 instead of Ro5!Anyway, I had thought that you couldnt book a seat in the restaurant cars. Do you think that is unintuitive?
QuoteAlthough, are there not Fo5_1960 and DFo28_1960? They should be buildable from the 1960's up to 1984.
QuoteThat is a part of an experiement. They are parts of other vehicles, eg UBFo_1930 and UADo7z(UADZ)_1950 and are what in pak-britain is refered to cargo-holds. The vehicles in real life where capable of transporting post and passenger or cargo and passengers at the same time, and that was an experiement to see if it works, which it actually does. However, its not that userfriendly and its a hack. Suggestions?
QuotePak.CS has something simiar. They use the same picture twice, with half of the vehicle "semi-transaparent" - checkered with transparent pixels. See for example http://sourceforge.net/p/simutrans/code/HEAD/tree/pak128.CS/vehicles/rail-psg+mail/460_560/. It is czechoslovak EMU class from 80's, that has a baggage and passenger compartment on the engine.
QuoteWell, you cannot book a seat, but you can sit there without booking, as long as you are eating/drinking something. (And if booking a seat is not compulsory - depends on country).I did that a few times when train was overcrowded. I see that you have set some overcorwded capacity for restaurant car, but it seem to be ignored if standard capacity is 0.Also capacities of 1st class coach Ao5 seems to me too low. Imho it is 11 compartmens, not 11 persons. For 1st class I would forbid overcrowding (booked seat only).
