Gorgeous rivers! The one with the rocks is totally realistic.

David, of all of the (what seems like) bazillion things you've done for and shown us, your latest efforts, plain and simply, has me on the edge of my seat daily... :o  Eager to see what's next... :thumbsup:

Look out, entering a FAR zone....


We're looking for a few beta testers over at 3RR [linkie]. Check it out if you'd be interested.

Excellent showcase of FAR, can't wait till it is unleashed onto the SC4 community!
#2014 05/12/2008 08:44 AM

The FAR (fractional angle roads) is in the hands of the beta testers. Here's two pics one of them, our friend Matt (threestooges) posted yesterday.

Before FAR...

After FAR...

Kind of speaks for itself, doncha' think?

We're sure there'll be more beta test pics today over at 3RR [linkie]. It's be great to see you drop by.

THIS map is really GREAT, as does the developed island! Excellent use of the roads, keep up the good work! Looking forward to more,

#2016 05/12/2008 11:14 AM

I haven't posted here in ages, but I thought I'd comment on this CJ.... this is absolutely epic! The attention to detail is everything we'd expect, but fractional road angles?? Wow.
Beautiful as always, dedgren. Can't wait to see more.

Amazing work, David! I couldn't get the After FAR pics to work, but I saw the pics on SC4Devotion. Great work!
#2024 05/14/2008 08:11 AM

More FAR beta test pics..







The beta test has already produced one major improvement, which Alex (Tarkus) will be implementing. The great news is that, because the NAM is now modular, we don't have to wait for the next release to get this out and into everyone's hands.

There's more beta test pics and discussion over at 3RR [linkie]. See you there.


#2025 05/14/2008 08:47 AM

David - this is a great work !!!
#2026 05/14/2008 12:19 PM

Oh cool, I'm view 59005 ;D Nice pictures there David
#2027 05/14/2008 03:08 PM

Thought I'd post a couple pictures that were snatched from the Massopax State DOT's files...

I tried playing U-Drive-it today with the FAR's and it worked fine. They show up in the region view too.

Pretty much the only issue I've is when I've mislaid a puzzle piece and when I bulldoze it, it messes up the neighboring pieces, such that if I have a long string of FAR's, all of them end up getting messed up as I bulldoze the previous messed-up puzzle piece, and so on.

At any rate it's a neat tool.

#2028 05/15/2008 01:15 AM

I thought instead of having the same pictures of FAR as the SC4D thread, I'd show a mosaic!

Although its not filled to the brim with FAR, it just goes to show how well it integrates into the existing road network. Well done David!

dfnva: For the mislaid puzzle pieces, I've found that its actually ok not to demolish everything. Bulldoze all except for the one tile which connects to the other FAR piece, then laid it down again and it shall connect nicely ;D

If the FARs are released, it will be absolutely GREAT for rural areas.

I'll now go and scan SC4D for the latest projects.......
#2030 05/16/2008 10:20 AM

We may not be ST Hall of Fame material here, but we do alright...

I kind of suspect it'll be a big weekend over at 3RR [linkie]. We'd hate to see you left out- c'mon over and join in the fun.


#2031 05/16/2008 10:55 AM

WOW talk about FAR out here all!!! Great looking rail David!!!

#2032 05/16/2008 05:22 PM

Almighty Nienaber

#2033 05/17/2008 01:10 PM

#2034 05/17/2008 01:45 PM

awesome work

Genius...... Truly Genius :o
#2036 05/17/2008 02:50 PM

It's good. So what's the differance between these and the curve pieces in the NAM?
#2037 05/17/2008 04:04 PM

That looks simply unbelievably good. Great for some twisty mountain roads. You should try to do it on something like Stelvio pass in Switzerland.
#2038 05/17/2008 04:24 PM

Well, hi again.

Explodingsims, in answer to your question, here's the next FARR piece- the 45 degree curve.

No. 1, of course, is the game 45 degree curve. Enough said.

No. 2 is the 45 degree curve that currently is in the NAM (It's been there since the version released in January, 2007). It is included in the puzzle-pieces and has been, to this point, the only break from the game curve radii. It has been a wonderful addition to the game, and I have used it in 3RR [linkie] to the exclusion of the game "45s" since its release.

No. 3 is the curve I just finished texturing (it is shown on a lot because that's the only way to see it until the puzzle-piece masters work thoir magic). Note that it is smoother and more uniform, that the ties actually are properly aligned with the curve and that transitions are improved (I have a tie mis-alignment issue at the 45 degree end- the game 45 degree "straight" section has different tie spacing). All that said, the dimensions and in particular the radius is the same. This will be the 45 degree puzzle-piece available in the next release of the NAM.

So now we have this

and this.

Something big coming up next.

This was a 3RR-ST exclusive. Thanks for your interest.


#2039 05/17/2008 07:28 PM

The new piece looks very good, much more natural. Is it possible to create the new piece in a Y or left and right hand switch configuration?
