A social focal point...
« on: November 21, 2010, 06:27:18 PM »
You can tell the girlfriend is away since i'm just drawing!

THis is a simple 1x1 tile, pavement style that is designed to act as a gathering and as a placeholder.

Plans? A fountian maybe, some plants maybe. its designed to simply be a place where simutrans meet up in town, just down from town hall with trams either side?

Use it how you will and feel free to edit this graphic.

How about a bulletin board?

Yes! I like that! I'm really liking it actually. some benches, flowers and bang, we've got a social bulletin board for simutransians to sit around and read!

It could be a city building (curiosity) or a station extension. I have already made it into a station extension here.
EDIT: Here it is in curiosity form: http://www.electroduck.com/simutrans/building_Social_Spot_cty.zip

Oh my, thank you sir! I plan on working on these graphics during tomorrow morning, and maybe after college too (and if Politics gets too boring then during :P ). Hopefully i'll have 2 stations done, and a bit more of this placeholder thing sorted.

If you can give me these two views,  I can make a station.
Veiws:

Actually, don't do that. It's best as a curiosity.
I like the idea of benches and flowers, however, I am a terrible drawer.

I think maybe a bigger tiled version with "stuff" could be a curiosity and another small 1 tile version could be a station extention.

why not implement it as a low-level resident/commercial 'building' ? pak96.comic has some of such buildings. They add a lot of flavour and atmosphere imho.
