  • Hmm....

    -------
    I'm just so restless for a railway that I just want to get it built. I have so much iron I want to use on a railway system.... I'm curious, yet it's been said that trains "may" be '5 blocks wide' that it has me wondering what train sizes we're getting.

    I'm having to wonder how we're going to craft trains (hopefully outside), how we're going to manufacture train tracks, if there'll be curved train tracks, tracks that adapt to their positioning (Connecting with left & ride tracks), tracks that adapt to their elevations (up and down), and etc. So many questions about trains, yet Red51 has to keep these a secret for surprise & development purposes.

    Lastly, I damn well hope we're gaining electric trains (yet not expecting it at first) for when we run out of oil. We can always go back to steam trains, or rely on NPC merchants (vanilla) to import oil for us to convert into fuel. Shall be fun having electric train lines lining the map :D
    ---------

    I saw a comment of someone desiring a "non-binary" character on RW's Facebook page, something I have to facepalm over because it took 2-3 years until someone mentioned that. I was expecting it when Red51 first brought up we're getting a male-female character feature a long while back.....If anything, I do hope clothing fits on both male & female characters to cover this, yet anything else would have to be covered by mods.... There's a reason why games don't have characters using Tumblr genders, and it's because it's a struggle adding them in, unless it's modding.

    ------

    I finally fiddled with lighting in the game that I'm happy that gold & copper is used, if lightly. Just wishing for more copper & gold uses. Silver needs a use that I hope we're gaining silverware.

  • @ArcticuKitsu
    Aaah, I thought you meant 5 blocks for the track width, ok that makes more sense now.



    A standard track width for heavy rail used in USA and Europe is 4' 8.5" (1435mm) wheras the train itself has a max width of 9' (2743mm). I believe that in past conversations we've established that a block in Rising World is 0.5m wide so I guess a heavy rail track in RW would be roughly 3 blocks wide while the train is 5 blocks wide. Then I suppose 3911mm tall which would be 8 blocks tall.

    Not sure what (if any) international standard exists for minecarts but someone on a forum mentioned 600mm gauge. So for RW purposes we could reduce that to 1 block with a cart width of 2 blocks.

    Any thoughts on this?


  • I'm honestly surprised that you went out and did your research on train width, something Red51 can actually make use of in Rising World...If he hasn't already. Impressive. I wouldn't have thought of checking the sizes having accepted whatever we would have gained over being accurate.

    Well,.... I'm horrible at math that I need a calculator to help me out so I guess I'll just nod & agree that this works nicely.

    There's more listings here, do what you want with them.

  • It's amazing how much you forget when you don't play with certain features in the game for a lengthy period of time that I had to go digging through both Google & Wiki to relearn what I've once knew. Had to re-learn where to find both gold & sulfur so I could stockpile on them while digging for stone for a certain project...... While working on that certain project I'm now re-desiring the likes of mining helmets again. Something as simple as mining helmets that's in the next update would go a massive way to tend to simplistic things heh.

    I hope whatever small animation issues Red51 may be picky about can be overlooked.

    I love the tranquil vibe Rising World gives off that I'm hoping Red51 is finally pleased with what's in front of him. Really need that mining helmet now that I'm mining hard underground :whistling:
    (Not saying he should force the update out in a buggy mess, but to just be 'slightly' lax)

  • Woosh goes the posting.... Right over Arakara's head. A shame you read it too literally. (I got the joke tho)

    Well, at least I can now say that I originally wanted to praise Red51 over the Ore Detector with how handy is is that I was able to find gold & Sulfur with its help. Nice rediscovering things that you wouldn't otherwise use. The small things. :thumbup: The Ore detector is my best friend again.

  • Looks good so far.
    I see civilian clothing, Low technology leather armour.
    Might I suggest gambeson layered cloth. Just Cloth added to an existing shirt or pants.
    Scale armour. Gambeson plus 2 metal plates. Copper, Iron, Aluminium.
    Modern combat wear. Green dye from grass and catalyst. Ochre dye from dirt and catalyst. [My grand Uncles ran an ochre mine and set the world record for getting arrested for trying to join up. 5 times in WW2. They were not allowed fight; the mine was too important. :D ]
    Dark brown from the orange flower plus burnt food. Blue dye from the blue flower.
    High technology armour. Cloth, Ceramic, Aluminium. I'll have to cook up a dirt to clay recipe. Most dirt has a little clay and other ceramic

    PS sorry I've been a way. So many games so little time.
    I'm even paying 40 a year for two games I'm not remembering to play.
  • We also need a power plant technology to power those lights without clutter. I have an idea. We will need to avoid wiring. That looks good in some minecraft mods but is never easy to code or lay out.
    Que the Tesla coil.

    Could be a mod or a simple set of crafts.
    Build sequence to come. That should be fun. ;)
