Quote from: wlindley on June 04, 2020, 05:44:25 PMExcellent! As a longtime Phoenix resident, I imagine this could encompass everything from San Diego and Phoenix to San Francisco and Flagstaff.I do encourage you to consider using the "LEGO-building-block" method as used in the pak128 Britain Stone Attractions images. By which I mean, consider Los Angeles Union Station (Google image)as a group of 1x1 buildings which the user can build as station add-ons. Each building would have doors and full walls from all rotations. I have drawn, in green, example 1x1 buildings for composition (as Main Waiting Room, Entry with Clock Tower, Carriage Court, Mail Annex, Garden Court, and so on.)If Extended one day supports Catering upgrades as station add-ons, the Fred Harvey Restaurant (just to left of clock tower) would have a small passenger capacity but a high Catering bonus.A delightful side-effect of this method is that, by adding a twin-bell-tower 1x1 building, you can build San Diego's Santa Fe Station with the same set, or with one or two other 1x1s you can build Phoenix Union Station.The same principle works with factories and other large buildings: the 1x1 building-blocks can be combined in your Dat file instead of tile-cutting. You can even designate buildings as factory 'fields' and have the game build each factory as unique set of buildings.

QuoteAs to city buildings, remember that it is now possible to have multi-tiled city buildings. If you are designing a pakset from the ground up, you might want to take advantage of that in your basic scaling/design/balancing decisions, as it is much easier to make use of these buildings if this has been designed in in advance.

QuoteI have a town hall here that might fit in California. Here it is and tell me if it will work. If it does I will find some way of giving it to you. The Pak file is going to be too big for the attachments.
