New heavy elevated rail viaducts
« on: October 29, 2007, 12:05:48 PM »
Hello  "$Deal"$

The new heavy elevated rail viaducts will be released soon. At the moment, there are two styles available, grey natural rocks (currently the standard appearance)...



... and a yellow brick texture.



Both textures seem to have quite a fan base, so I'm starting a poll which one should become the standard look, and which one should be available as separate plugin. So, here's the question: Which style do you like more, the grey natural rocks or the yellow bricks?

If you don't know which one you like better, here's a BETA version that contains both styles:

@EDIT: THANKS ANDREAS FOR THE TRANSLATION. :thumbsup:

I like the grey natural rocks better, because it's more neutral and IMO fits in with more styles. The yellow brick is just too... yellow. :P

I cast my vote for the grey textures as well - at least as long no red brick texture is available. ;)

I would also like to cast a vote into the general direction of the greyish colour. I like both colours but the grey ones best. A red one would be even better.

But GREAT work Arkenbergjoe  :thumbsup:

Ich mag die braune Version am meisten. Doch sind beide Versionen sehr schön!  :thumbsup:

I like the brown version the most. Though both versions are really beautiful!

I have to vote for the Grey Stone as my first choice.

Now, I like both versions.  And it has been found that it should be possible for us to make this into a Draggable Option like SAM where you can have the multiple skins selectable by a Puzzle Piece Starter.  I think it would definately be worthwhile to cerate a RAM (Rail Addon Mod) which will included the MAXIS Base textures, these two El-Rail Viaducts, NOB's Rail textures and NCD's Rail Textures.

Nun, ich mag beide Versionen. , Und es wurde festgestellt, dass es möglich sein sollte, für uns, um diese in eine Draggable Option wie SAM, wo Sie die zahlreichen Skins wählbar durch ein Puzzle Stück Starter. Ich glaube, es wäre auf jeden Fall lohnt sich cerate RAM (Rail Addon Mod), die auch die MAXIS Base Texturen, diese beiden El Rail Viadukte, NOB's Rail Texturen und NCD's Rail Texturen

Now we're talking! :D

If we'll get puzzle pieces first, before seeing it draggable, then my preference is the grey one as well!

We're not the only ones guilty of 3-letter acronyms--*cough* CAM *cough*. Just the vast majority of them. :D  ::)

I too would vote for the "grey stone" option, and I'm all in favor of helping Jason out with the RAM project.

This is truly excellent work, Arkenberge Joe. Es ist sehr gut!  :thumbsup:  (My German isn't all that great--I'm far better at translating German-to-English rather than the other way around.)

Speaking of which, there's a HAM in the works (Highway Addon Mod), dealing with the RHW, the UHW and the MIS. :P

Ich finde auch, dass die graue Version besser aussieht... ;) Aber dennoch sehen beide sehr schön aus.
Und natürlich find ich jplumbleys Idee noch besser. :)

And, of course, I find jplumbley's idea also good.

I think they both rock.  Will they ONLY work on rail, or will I be able to use it on elevated roads and avenues too?
My days here are numbered. It's been great and I've had a lot of fun, but I've moved on to bigger and better things.

You should release both!  I can't make up my mind!

However, for my cities anyway, the yellow does look a little better.

I vote for the yellow, and I think we need a new acronym, as we are going to run out of letters to add to AM at the rate we are creating them.  :P

Maybe we need to replace the AM with something else, I'm up for suggestions.

Perhaps "EM", for "Expansion Mod" or "Extension Mod".  The Rail Extension/Expansion Mod would end up being REM. :D

They will be released both. ;) The poll is just there in order to decide which one should become the default style.
