Pak192.Comic 2021 RC 1
« on: September 12, 2020, 03:02:14 PM »
Hey there,

the next version of Pak192.Comic is slowly taking shape.
I've published a new release candidate you can download here: https://github.com/Flemmbrav/Pak192.Comic/releases/tag/2021-V0.6-RC1
Please tell us what you think of the pakset as a whole as well as the recent changes!

Oh, and I brought a screenshot to tease you a bit:



Please note that a Simutrans-nightly from this summer is required. I personally use r9169. You can grab Simutrans-nightlies here: https://nightly.simutrans.com/en/

Screenshots from there never show for me. I wonder if it's convenient and you think about it - when you paste the screenshot URL, you might consider pasting it again outside of the img tag - that's what I do. It linkifies it so anyone who can't see the inline screenshot has a link to easily get to it, at least. :)

That being said, I grabbed the URL from your message and it looks great!

It fetches well for me, so I go for it.
What do you use? Best for me would be imgur, but they compress the image sadly.

It fetches for me if I go to the link, it just shows up as an empty box inline here, so I had to edit your message to grab the link. :) If nobody else is having this problem and it's just me, it's probably not enough to worry about. :)

But as far as what I use - I upload screenshots to my server using ShareX:

Just because I love all the options for annotation, and you can even set it up to upload to different destinations.

I think, that this version is running fine.
But I noticed, that there is only one trolleybus available.
Therefore I would like to ask, if other trolleybuses will be added before the final release of version 0.6.

Hope you enjoy it as well!

There might be people claiming to work on trolleys, but these people are... unreliable in that regard? Well, what I want to say is: there are plans, but I doubt these will be followed by actions any time soon.

Do you think that trolleys are a significant part of the experience?
My focus is on balancing / freight cars right now, but if trolleys really are a thing the community whishes for, that might change.

Yes, I am enjoying it very much.
I just asked, because i was surprised. I think, that trolleybuses are not very important, but an interesting feature.

awh~ I'm glad.

If you're invested in trolleys, please feel free to modify the already existing busses to trolleys.
It's not that hard and I'll be here to help where I can.
It's a topic we definitly don't do enough in, same with ships. I'd love to see some development in there too. Maybe even adding a truck that uses the overhead wires too?
In case you want to try it, you can find the images of the busses on GitHub over here: https://github.com/Flemmbrav/Pak192.Comic/tree/master/pakset/vehicles/road/image

Thank you very much. I was already thinking about modifying the existing buses.
I will try modifying some buses, but it will take some time.
