  • [QUOTE=PcmciaKai;25089823]Great looking map so far, what can you do on the map, if you don't feel like trains? (But trains are awesome, I will ride on Pringles' metro then! :D)[/QUOTE] I think you came to the wrong map if you dont feel like trains.

  • Also I added and tested the new rails on the bend...could use more work but they can be taken at a realistic speed
  • This map is fucking sex, I wish I could map as good as you can. Will this be a train only map or will you have stuff like roads and stuff like that all over it?
  • [QUOTE=Fatfatfatty;25105548]This map is fucking sex, I wish I could map as good as you can. Will this be a train only map or will you have stuff like roads and stuff like that all over it?[/QUOTE] The main road was going to be usable at one point, but it would have caused too many problems
  • [QUOTE=LordCrypto;25145211]Oh well, this isn't a truck driving map anyways.[/QUOTE] Agreed, but will there be smaller roads? not like a main highway sort of a thing, but just a little something?
  • Who knows I may consider it, because of the thin building area in the neighborhood, I found myself noclipping through the fence and building on the road instead. It would fix a lot of construct space issues, and would not be too difficult...
  • [QUOTE=madmax678;25151076]It would be more "all round friendly" if you opened the roads up...[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=WebOfTrust;23819052] Cityrail is a modern train-build map[/QUOTE] I think your question has been answered why this is likely not to happen.
  • Lol, but it is actually likely I may open some roads up for build space. This map will need more empty areas than I originally planned after actually playing it.
  • [QUOTE=CdrStalin;25153396]I think your question has been answered why this is likely not to happen.[/QUOTE]So, why have roads and not use them? Pretty pointless if you ask me...
  • While we are on the topic of roads, will there be any railroad crossings? i wanna build a car and hit it with a train lol

  • [QUOTE=madmax678;25154170]So, why have roads and not use them? Pretty pointless if you ask me...[/QUOTE] I think you are missing the point.
  • [QUOTE=Rocket Man;25154199]While we are on the topic of roads, will there be any railroad crossings? i wanna build a car and hit it with a train lol[/QUOTE] There is currently one in the red-brick area, but I've been trying to avoid adding them because 1) I then have to find a reason to make both sides of the road inaccessible to the player realistically, and 2) most roads seem to go over or under electric track in Helsinki, usually over.
  • [QUOTE=WebOfTrust;25155223] most roads seem to go over or under electric track in Helsinki, usually over.[/QUOTE] Same with Amtrak's northeast corridor here on the east coast of the US, there are only like, 5 crossings still active or something like that, and it runs all the way from DC to New York, most go over or under now

  • [QUOTE=Wolfie13;25162180]That's because America doesn't put barriers on level crossings and leave it to lights to separate people, SUVs and 150mph expresses.[/QUOTE] [url=http://www.corbisimages.com/images/67/1BA250B7-B947-4B3C-A5CA-83F86AF7CB8C/T-112-0108.jpg]You sure about that?[/url] Everywhere in the US I've been has had barriers at the crossings. Unless you're referring to the agrarian middle part and/or deep south, I guess barrier-less railroad crossings are their means of justice.
  • [QUOTE=Wolfie13;25162180]That's because America doesn't put barriers on level crossings and leave it to lights to separate people, SUVs and 150mph expresses.[/QUOTE] We do have barriers, plus lights [img]http://www.volpe.dot.gov/infosrc/yir/2009/images/physical_amtrak.jpg[/img] The image is from the northeast corridor, its slightly older, but he crossing design hasn't changed, it goes all the way across, there is another gate just out of the picture on the right
  • Should I keep this new sky? It is a quick edit of lazydays_hdr by Mr. Chop.

  • [QUOTE=Pringles.;25198021]Just don't make it too bright[/QUOTE] What I've seen in Finland, at least from streetview, it always seems to have an overcast and be around the same colour/brightness but perhaps just a bit more lively.Nothing really bright though, I will keep trying for perfection It does have colour correction though. [editline]12:02PM[/editline] Also I've been asked to keep consistency with oskutin's original style for the map, and even though he [url=http://www.constructivenews.net/?p=135]liked[/url] the new way ("Some areas have a style very similar to mine and others are quite different, but I like it.") I think it will be much better to keep it the same as originally intended: [IMG_thumb]http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab23/BJK51alt/Hammer/352672346326234344.jpg[/IMG_thumb] -> [img_thumb]http://www.1337upload.net/files/438523468732567.jpg[/img_thumb]
  • Will there be any fog, like, a slightly foggy? Not too much, but maybe if you stop to look and go "Oh, hey, I think this map is a little foggy"
