The dusting of my harddrive. This is a project I am working on get done:

The grid is where the water is going. Its inspired by the Copenhagen Harbourbus:

Looking at this picture, I think I need to adjust the color towards a more orange tone yellow.


Harbourbus is boat and not a bus in the harbour:

Haha,and a Watertaxi is not a Yellow Cab in the water $%Grinno$%

Odd jokes aside,your new harbour-bus looks great.I wonder what it will replace,i mean you already have the large ferry which yu showed a few days ago.
Or will the harbour-bus replace on of the other medium sized boats that spawn when placing the marina?

As I see it, there are two kinds of ferries: Car ferries and passenger ferries.
So the plan is to make it into a passenger ferry as well.

Around 70 % through the different colors:

Corsica Ferries -Sardinia Ferries.

Had a report about the UDI icons is not showing up, not even the default icons for the passenger ferry.
Been trying my luck with different properties/settings, but so far no luck.

Could it be that it only will allow UDI with the default Maxis ferries? That's just a guess; I'd love to be proved wrong. But then again, UDI is probably pretty limited anyway because it was just something that was thrown into Rush Hour at the last minute, kinda like how the MHW were changed from four lanes to six at the last minute because EA wanted the freeways to look more urban, and a four-lane freeway doesn't look very urban-like.

Hope to prove you wrong. We couldn't get the nightlights on the ferries (Vil, Rivit and me), so maybe its just something with the ferries.
Still have a few options to test out first, before throwing in the towel.

So far all the trains has UDI icons to my knowledge....

Sidney Harbour Ferries.

Looks outstanding  &apls &apls  :o :o  Best of luck with the UDI and nightlighting issues :)

For some reason I think we are not going to get the nightlights to work,

but I got the UDI to work.  ;D

Well you will have to live with one minor problem..... its either two icons or nore.

Been working on the ACTV Motonavi Cruise Ship:


At the moment I am working on placing windows and other details.

This model is inspired by the Venice ACTV motorboats.

deora

From what i can see is that the Boat looks exellent.I`m glad that you choosed a not too modern looking style.
I wonder what those fins on the chimneys are for (at least i think those are chimneys...)

vortext

Great to see more ferries, the latest is very nice. :thumbsup:

Though not surprising perhaps I especially like the older models on the page you linked to. Any change you'll be making an older variant?

Time to try out the harbour bus in game. If that works I will start assemble these. take pictures and all the other works to get them to you.

EDIT: Time to do some assembling.

Deora: The fins are on the chimneys. One can only guess what they are for. Keeping water out of the chimneys ?

Erik: Maybe if I find the time for it. Would something like the Altino or the Torino do ?

vortext

Yes the Altino would be great to have that ingame.  :thumbsup:

I second that - the Altino would be great to have in SC4  :thumbsup:

Got a little help from Tropod, so now the second UDI icons is gone. Have updated the files on the exchange.
