History

#1 Updated by oberhuemer almost 8 years ago

  • File Tanktainer_Carrier.PNG added

I wasn't really seeing the "tank" part, so I tried to make some improvements. It would help if the flatcar surface was a different color, or had holes like they usually do.

#2 Updated by Voyager1 almost 8 years ago

Not bad at all. Actually, very very nice, thanks Oberhuemer, I'll make them according to your changes.

#4 Updated by Voyager1 almost 8 years ago

Better? BTW, I had to change your sprites too a little bit. You've drawn them full width, they must be narrower than the wagon.

Definitely better. Containers are relatively wide though and do usually cover the full car width (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Railroad_car_with_container_loads.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Banbury_box_car_2001_2rd.png as examples).
One more thing is that the yellow seems very glaring to me, not sure how much could be done about that.

IRL yes, here I've decided to make them a little narrower because of some other detailing.

yellow seems very glaring

That isn't supposed to be yellow at all but orange! LOL
I'll try darkening it a little bit, it will probably take away some of that glare.

Accidentally closed this...

Do you still want to modify these sprites? If so, then you can just post the sprites in this issue whenever.
Otherwise you can close this issue (don't know if you can, if you can't just let me know that these are the final sprites and then I'll close it).

#11 Updated by Voyager1 almost 8 years ago

No, no, these are final files, you can apply them and close this.

Ok, great! Then this is complete and finished.
Sprites looked good to me, just wanted to check if they looked good to you as well :)
