Elevated ways
« on: September 09, 2016, 08:59:51 PM »
I have the steam version of pak 128 for MAC. Maybe my searching skills aren't very good, but I cannot find an elevated railway addon. The elevated railways in the new steam version over 180km/h are covered with concrete and steel, obstructing the view of the train. Also, the tracks over 280km/ took bulky and cover a whole square. 

Are there any addons that have elevated railways that do not have steel or concrete covering the view of the tracks?

I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Is what you want a elevated way under which you can run other things without it looking weird?

I would like to find an addon that has railway viaducts and bridges. The viaducts in the new Steam version of Simutrans pak 128 cover the view of the train with tracks over 280km/h

I think this is a request for reworked pak128 elevated ways which are visually less bulky so as to obscure convoys and clutter the view less.

Be aware that the high-speed elevated ways were made particularly bulky with high visually obscuring sound barriers for a bit of realism. The bridges have to be highly stable to allow trains to reach high speeds on them (it would fall off a flimsy steel thing like used at lower speeds). The sound barriers are needed to keep ground level noise pollution down by reflecting most of it towards the sky, especially in countries in the EU where strict noise pollution regulations exist.

Fair enough. However, in Japan the elevated viaducts do not obstruct the view of the train. Are there any addons that have viaducts without the sound barriers for fast trains?

Are there any addons that have bridges and new viaducts for rail in pak 128?
