Description

The long vehicles probably could need a proper template to help guide the artists

I've taken the views from the orignal test grf... this seems to have one too few or two too many sprites per 180° rotation. Or the steps in rotation are (45 / 4)° which is a strange fraction ;-)

History

#1 Updated by planetmaker over 8 years ago

  • Description updated (diff)

#2 Updated by Eddi over 8 years ago

The "superfluous" views stem from a test where 45°/2 (22.5°) was tried, this didn't quite work out, but the sprites were still in the image, when 45°/3 (15°) was tried.

So, if the sprites in the above image were numbered from 1, the sprites 3,7,11,15 should be removed. Also possibly there should be additional blue lines on the top, to allow oversized vehicles like double decker wagons.

#3 Updated by planetmaker over 8 years ago

  • File deleted (template_long.png)

#4 Updated by planetmaker over 8 years ago

  • File deleted (template_long.xcf)

#5 Updated by planetmaker over 8 years ago

New template(s) which don't have the superfluous sprites anymore

#6 Updated by oberhuemer over 8 years ago

More templates, they are also pushed now. Code needs to be adjusted and two more made still.

#7 Updated by Eddi over 8 years ago

NOTE: the two rows in the templates are the wrong way around. i have switched this for the files in the repo, but keep this in mind when you prepare the 10lu and 6lu templates.

#8 Updated by oberhuemer over 8 years ago

  • % Done changed from 60 to 100

Noticed, and fixed for the other two. Shall I also do templates for odd lengths?

#9 Updated by Eddi over 8 years ago

I could see a use for (7+3)lu setup for the early steam engines, otherwise odd lengths probably only if we decide for the 12lu=24m variant.

i think we may also need a 14lu template.

#10 Updated by oberhuemer over 8 years ago

  • % Done changed from 100 to 40

Three more then. I'll do the other odd ones (5, 9, 13 lu) afterwards.

#11 Updated by oberhuemer over 8 years ago

  • % Done changed from 40 to 70

Those three are done, rest should come tomorrow.

#12 Updated by Eddi over 8 years ago

summary: merged changes (needs a commit?)

try "hg rebase" (extension) after pulling, to "linearize" your local commits.

#13 Updated by oberhuemer over 8 years ago

  • Status changed from Assigned to Closed
  • % Done changed from 70 to 100

All right. Anyway, I'm done; 11/8 and 15/8 might still be needed, but this can be reopened then.

#14 Updated by Eddi about 8 years ago

  • Status changed from Closed to Reopened

It'd be nice if we had the 11 and 15 templates, 11 because it might actually be needed, and 15 for completeness.

#15 Updated by oberhuemer about 8 years ago

  • Status changed from Reopened to Closed

And done.
