1) What kind of train?
2) what kind of path will be?
3) What kind of stations we must create?
4) and i think that train path must be not ground (in current island)... hover like in gta3?

discuss

my suggestions:
- train like the one in GTA3, that one doesn't have any big
flaws;
- Agree about the elevated version(although it would be fun to see the tarin crash at full speed into cars and send them flying devil.gif );
- If it would be possible to take a train( for a fee) up to the top of the mountain on Illspirit's island when it's released;
- also the train to be implemented in Necrosis Island(if REspawn agrees).
These are just my ideas...

Would it be fitting to Myriad, the original thing wasnt to have a train either was it? A train around the city would look bad imo, im not sure how a offshore monorail would go but it would just appear to be stuck there. Im not sure about the train idea atm and we are gonna have the sewer also so.......
But thats my opinion so everyones are welcome.

I am really hoping too that a train will be developed, and i would think if it will be off-ground we could have a good monorail. or a magnet train. But if it will be on the ground, a freight train would be excellent biggrin.gif

I definately think we should have a train, personally I am in favor of either a subway or elevated train track, having it go throught he city would be better but there are quite a few obstructions, so an offshore monorail might work better. I dont think a freight train would be very good, because there arent too many industrial buildings ATM and they should all be concentrated in the one place so a freight train could be kindof pointless. If we do decide a train is a good idea than someone should be appointed train coordinator, similar to how Steve is the sewer coordinator. I for one, volunteer

i think we should have a monorail type of train that goes round the edge of the islands, from the furthest piont on all three islands, it should be elevated and one of the stations could be a central station type, and yes there should definately be a train co-ordinator, or even better illy could make a monorail already part of his next islands so that it would travel through the city then it would go round the edge of myriad and necrosis, like gta 3, that would be so coool.
maybe the base of the train could be positioned like gt1's streetlighting.

And I thought I'd never see a train in Vice.
The Idea does sound awesome, and should be like in gta3, but since the first island isn't that big, the best would be to fit a train on Necrosis or Black Mesa.

Well...
A train going around the city wouldn't IMO look good...

But a "train" to the mountain would look good.

Something like that maybe?

We will have to wait for SA PC anyway to get a train working properly, so there's still plenty of time to collect ideas. It might be good to see how trains are organized in SA to get some inspiration. There will be the SF cable cars and the LS Brown Streak, and maybe another type of train in LV we don't know yet.

IMO, a high-tech magnetic monorail would be cool. At least on the first island it could go on elevated tracks like in GTA3, but since the northern islands are quite hilly, it could go in air, on ground and through tunnels without a gradient, what would be quite nice.

Actually Steve, if you check GTA:LC/Proof Of Concept video in PPT, you can get trains/ferries/monorails etc. working just as well as GTA3's trains.

I think that we should think about the actual train line first. If we set it up like your regular inter-city train (not a monorail or maglev or any other freaky sh*t), then we can run pretty much any sort of train we like on it - high-speed passenger, low-speed, freight... anything. Maybe we can do some mission-specific ones, or maybe even run several different types of trains?

I'd prefer a subway. It consumes far far less land space, and if we assume there's no lighting in the tunnel, we can just use black square piping for most of it. i.e. zero labor.

But that defeats the object, doesn't it? confused.gif

I think I may have an alternative to a subway. Needs discussion though.

If we're going to do an above ground railway, it needs to be non-intrusive. This is why I suggested an off-shore maglev railway. We can extend the station out to meet the rail, instead of bringing the rail in towards the station. However, in it's current state, Necrosis Island is too close to the south border of the game to go around, so it would have to go under or over it.

what about merging together the sewer sytem and the underground railway? (with some extra passages)...

one cool idea would aslo be: having a road tunnel and the subway running besides it for some lenght? (maybe between islands)

maybe just a small elevated (monorail?) system above ground that crosses between islands.

no point in having one for just the one island cus its not realy big enough.

how far apart are the islands anyway? how about a drive-on ferry???

a monorail similar to the one in "Riven" would be good, goes into the sea and out again through a glass tunnel

I would go for an out to sea monorail having the stations extend to the land although I was hoping for ground. And if the sea has a floorbed I would also go fo having a dip and going through an underwater tunnel that would meet somes subway Idea.

I meant a train would look bad if they tried to create a similar one to the one in GTA3 where it winds through the city. That wouldnt fit the MI theme imo because there is no real set layout where one could go. If we do have one I think it would be best suited to an offshore type thing or something away from teh main focus of the city. Also who is going to volunteer to make this even if it did go ahead?
