CarGoTram (Freight Trams)
« on: November 14, 2010, 09:51:57 PM »
I have noticed that there are no freight vehicles for the tram gauge.
This is the CarGoTram freight emu, used to transport parts to and from the Volkswagen factory in Dresden. Real-life pictures are found here ---->http://rune-feldt.se/cargotram/index.htm.
This is the version I made, and most of its stats are based on real-life figures (50km/h speed, 90t and 990 power for 7-car emu). I have only made trams that can carry mail and pieced goods for now, although i will take requests for more cargo types.
There are two pak files in the package. 1 is the mail vehicle, and 2 is the pieced goods vehicle.

It's a very interesting idea, moreover your made it nicely ;)
The only drawback is the power, your tram reach its max speed too fast, you should lower its power.

That's where gear comes into play in Simutrans. You can keep the real power settings (kW) and still adjust the in-game behaviour.

game power = power * gear
so you can use a gear lower than 1.

Good idea, good graphics - but one small bug in constraints.

Freewayman, you set that only mail or freight unit can be assembled - but current constraints allow to assemble unit what cannot move - because they would not have any power - what is located in the last (tail) car.
