I think everyone is in favour of a monorail, and if it is approved then I suppose i will have to talk to people regarding stops, track going through their lot etc

Why does it matter if it's a monorail or not? Only thing that affects is the art-side of it - the shape of the tracks and the train.

That route you posted probably won't be the actual route. There's no way you could run a train down all those consecutive sharp corners and narrow streets.

With the little test I did I made a small very crappy looking piece of track and supports and made it go on part of my crappy route and it did look feasible for a train to be able to travel down that, but the route isnt very good anyway so it needs a lot of work and input.
BTW has the train been approved yet?

It also affects gameplay. On a monorail track it's almost impossible to walk or drive a car/bike, but we all want that, no? wink.gif

I like the monorail idea, it's new and deviates from the GTA3 train.
The support with pillons in the middle of the road will be a problem though, Most of the roads just don't seem wide enough to support them.

I will be available for any help needed on the scm part of the train.

Stop posting absolute BS in this topic then because guess what yeah this is spamming. Its a train topic unless you want to get flamed to death again by everyone I suggest keeping such comments to yourself. Just because you cannot see any progress on an installer for the whole of this does NOT mean its not in progress. illy put it well just because there is no information here or conversation regarding the installer doesnt mean discussion is not going on behind the scenes does it?
You have to understand that lots, vehicles, islands, missions, weapons can be made in a few hours and then released. They take time some people take longer than others.

Lastly this is a Community Map Project, everyone is welcome to post thoughts and comments on the mod. Those who just slate it for no good reason wont be so welcome. sarcasm.gif

First pic looks much better. But maybe if you try to hide the wheels a bit, it might look good too.

EDIT: Nah, monorail might be the best. Monorails.org kinda convinced me. tounge.gif

Maybe we should have a monorail running around the current island (above or beside the 4 lane road), and a normal train going around the whole city?

But why? Look what I found:
QUOTE (What is a monorail?)
A single rail serving as a track for passenger or freight vehicles. In most cases rail is elevated, but monorails can also run at grade, below grade or in subway tunnels. Vehicles are either suspended from or straddle a narrow guideway. Monorail vehicles are WIDER than the guideway that supports them.

So it can still run at ground or through tunnels, especially on the northern islands. And freight vehicles are allowed too.

That sounds good. Personally, I think a freight monorail train, or one running anywhere other than suspended off the ground, will look stupid...

SR definately the first one for a monorail around the four lane road.
@ and the train track should be below ground definately in myriad that we can access via subways not around the sides of the islands IMO we should have both.

That would be just perfect, I just want a train to crash into at ground level

Yeah, i agree with that too, a underground monorail would look better... And it's possible to put cars there... In getaway they use normal trains and monorails... tounge.gif I also agree with illy, very nice idea biggrin.gif
@SR i love the first one...

How about making it a magnetic train like the Transrapid?

It's almost the same as a monorail but much cooler modern tech... wink.gif
I also would love to see places where the track runs under ground (current island?), above the ground (necrosis should be perfect for that!) and on the ground to crash into (two planned new islands). There should also be two tracks so that you can go in both directions...

As far as we're concerned that's just a monorail with a wider track. confused.gif

Train will run above ground on the current island and Necrosis once we sort that out, probably run a normal railway track at ground level on the Black Mesa islands though.

Well, yeah, it doesn't look different from a monrail really... But a wider track is better I think because you can drive on it better!

I don't see what the problem is. It'd barely be more obstructive than the streetlamps. confused.gif
