Decorative Railtracks and Stations

    • Cities XXL Community MOD

    • Cities XXL 2015
    Hi guys,

    I don't have much time (nor patience) to make an exquisite presentation of the mod and I still want to post it until 2017 to achieve at least one of my 2017 resolutions, so I'll be brief and hopefully update it soon with better descriptions, pics and updates. Here we go:

    1. This is a DECORATIVE mod with rail pieces and stations. Unfortunately, no choo-choo's running on them, but you can plop them on (y)
    2. It's not finished completely, I'll let you know below what's not done. I'm posting it here as nobody would find it in my projects thread. Believe me, I've lost quite a few hairs trying to figuring some things out, so just take it as it is now, or give a helping hand :sneaky:
    3. Huge thanks to @Drazicdesign, who was at the beginning of the project and coded the basic tracks, to @Monty, who has always been there when I needed help and also shared his and @Altiris's unfinished rail mod, @fayeddd, who contributed with stations, @Mr.X² and his knowledge about bridges, and everyone else who was around to support or just nag me about the whole thing.
    4. The whole system works very much like RHM puzzle with tracks that you drag and switches you connect
    5. There is only a version with canopies (wires), and a no-canopy is NOT planned, so please don't ask or complain about it ;)
    6. If you want to help, know where some coding problems are etc, please, PM me.
    Without further ado:

    Menu location
    [​IMG]

    There is a single track and a few variations of double tracks (simple, with glass barrier, and platforms).
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    There are also no-collision versions of the simple single and double tracks, however, they're not as smooth as the roads when you upgrade them back - let me know how to make that work better

    Switches - there are (many, I know @Monty) fixed switches
    [​IMG]

    Railyard switches to ease your life
    [​IMG]
    and 2 variable switches (they snap along an existing track and have a plug to connect the new track
    [​IMG]
    Register or to view Spoiler content!
    There is also a doubletrack splitter, very much the same as Alt's large avenue splitter (even the sign is the same, thanks Alt, still need to make something more appropriate (if someone's willing to whip out sth cool instead, you're most welcome (y)))
    [​IMG]

    Road crossings - 10, 15 and 25m - part of Monty's rail mod, I just adjusted them to fit my tracks
    [​IMG]

    Stations - big thanks again to fayeddd (the 4 stations on the left and a bridge with elevator) and Monty (3-platform station and railway warehouse)

    Bridges are a bit peculiar, so pay attention:
    - work as upgrades from normal road bridges => build any 10-30m bridge and upgrade it from the menu
    - need a connector at each side - same sign ingame as the splitter, they need to face the bridge, otherwise will show "not enough room" and won't work
    [​IMG]
    - the connectors only connect to single track(s)
    - there are 4 new road bridges - originally made by Monty
    [​IMG]
    - bridges for single track are NOT working, there's some stupid mistake I haven't been able to figure out, so be patient

    Now some more pictures:
    A 30m mixed bridge - 2 one-way streets and a glass-protected double track in the middle - kinda proud of this one :love:

    [​IMG]
    Esplanades by @PaulJChris and seaside walls by uokiok are also upgradable
    [​IMG]
    Sometimes there might be the "not enough room" problem, so you can try using the no-collision versions

    I guess that's all, folks. Hope you enjoy it and stay tuned!

    Why aren't there 10 stars? It's magic! Finally I can build normal, realistic railways, railyards and rail terminals, as I used to project in my cities. Danke sehr, Pepino!!!
