NAM-GLR Request (single Track piece)
« on: May 30, 2010, 09:58:09 AM »
I like to thank the NAM team for the recent May 2010 update. I would like the following proposed on your next update. Add a (single) track on road or street. I live in Toronto and our trams sometimes have to loop by using a street or road and only (1) track is built on the street. Right now the NAM GLR has pieces that contain (2) tracks in opposite direction. The single track would help build GLR systems that need to go through residential streets/roads.

Thanks den52

I know what you mean, and these types of streets are quite common here as well in Belgium, so I'll second that request.
RIP Adrian (adroman), you were a great friend

There has been a similar request for directional GLR-1 in OWR. They are useful for loops as it is easier just to run the tram around than to stop it and go back. A similar implementation to RAM-STR would work. We could possibly even ask for plain GLR-1.

It would be nice.  But I know that here are some minor issues involved.

FYI, there is a GLR loop puzzle piece.

There is also some assorted GLR pieces with Ebina's GLR track mod addon pack.

There are 'loops', smartarse but they use up a lot of room in a small area and are unrealistic.

Would be great for rural areas that use GLR. An example of this is the New Cannan, CT branch of the New Haven line for Metro North. That is single rail and still uses semi-light rail.

Edit: Sorry about digging this up, but it seems the request was ignored

I wouldn't say it was ignored, just that they are busy with more important things at the moment.

Would be useful for making custom loops, plus for single-track branches and the like. The textures shouldn't be too hard, but obviously the NAM Team has higher priorities at this moment (Project 0E, Monolithic NAM). I'll add my name in though  ;)

This is actually one of multiple threads/posts we've gotten over the past few years asking about STGLR.  We haven't "ignored" it, but it may look that way because there just hasn't been the resources or interest at the developmental level to do it to this point.
