June 16, 2006
Managed to get into the swing of making TT3D again yesterday, and probably one of the more important features looks well on it's way to be finished.
Anyone that's played Transport Tycoon will know that any vehicle can be clicked on brings up a small (or large, if dragged) viewport window that shows a live view of what the vehicle is doing. I've added a screenshot into the June 2006 gallery of me playing around with 6 viewport windows which currently only draw the same as the main game screen, but can very easily be changed to follow vehicles around the map.
Once again I've been making videos, this one is slightly larger in size than the ones before, but demonstrates 16 viewport windows open at once while I build some road and set a vehicle going. Click here for the 5MB video . As always the video is Xvid encoded, so if you don't have the xvid codecs installed, your best bet is trusty VLC Player .
Today I shall probably try and get some more substantial looking GUI'ness to the game, as it makes my life a lot easier.
