S-Bahn System (train) UPDATE (01/08/2019)

UPDATE (01/08/2019):

Hi again,
after playing around with the last updated I was motivated to finally fix the way the cars are linked together.
So, I've studied some trains by other people and Yusuf's Turkish trains showed me what I was missing. Thank you for that!

This update is - hopefully - the final one. The trains now consist of proper cars and I've also added electric pantographs to the models and adjusted the textures here and there.
The final addition is a German "Doppelstock" railway (double-decker train) which in Germany is used to transport large amounts of passengers between cities in one region.
I've also included the ICE bullet-train into the zip file.

Attention:
Those who downloaded the last update should remove the old files in order to avoid errors.

The plugin (+ the addon) will still appear in KingTut's interstation category (see below!) but won't be compatible with it as far as I know.
If you want to make it compatible again with the various tram-based railways,
go into the jsons and just replace every instance of "flag train" with "flag tram".

Have fun!

UPDATE (28/07/2019):

Hi there,
I've updated the S-Bahn to make it compatible with the new in-game railways. Moreover, I've finally added tunnel frames and created some new S-Bahn models so that now we have front, middle and back cars.
(Pounkiller: It would be nice, if you could add the new models to your trainyard plugin!)
Finally, as an addon, I've created a plugin of the ICE-train (Intercity-Express) which is Germany's high-speed bullet-train. The addon comes with new models, new spawning station tiles and faster rails.

...

Also, as some of the IDs have changed, you may have to replace some of the old stuff in your cities.
Sorry!

Original Post:

Hi guys,
I've finished my S-Bahn system which you may have seen in part already in the Inter-station thread: http://www.theotown.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=5338
"S-Bahn" is an abbreviation for "Stadtschnellbahn" which means rapid city-train. It is intended as a quick commuter train for local or regional transportation.

This plugin contains:
- railways (a normal version and a slower version for stations) with bridge frames.
- functional stations in two variants (one to be placed at the side of a single railway, another to be placed in between two railways)
- non-functional deco tiles to extend the station platforms.
- a German-style S-Bahn.
- a Gravel Decal to extend the railway areas.

...

When I use this plugin, I get an error saying that the train category can not be found, even when I removed the rail platform decorations and downloaded the category. What is the problem?

There's a typo in the deco description. It says extent instead of extend.

I've also done a bit of testing and I can confirm that it is compatible.

You have to download Kingtut's inter station category and to put it into your plugin folder as well. I provided a link above.

Yes, that is what they are supposed to represent. But remember, it's all deco.

Make sure the train category folder has a 1 in front of it's name. It probably was loaded after train, which would cause that issue.

Hi guys,
I've finished my S-Bahn system which you may have seen in part already in the Inter-station thread: http://www.theotown.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=5338

This plugin contains:
- railways (a normal version and a slower version for stations) with bridge frames.
- functional stations in two variants (one to be placed at the side of a single railway, another to be placed in between two railways)
- non-functional deco tiles to extent the station platforms.
- a German-style S-Bahn.
- a Gravel Decal to extent the railway areas.

I recommend using bridges to cross normal roads in order to avoid unwanted effects.

The plugin requires the inter-station category by KINGTUT101 to work. You can download it from here:
http://www.theotown.com/forum/viewtopic ... 364#p72364
Put the downloaded category folder into your plugin folder! Make sure the categories' folder name starts with a 1, so that it is read in by the game before the S-Bahn plugin!

NOTE: If you have already used the earlier version of the platforms for decoration purposes, delete them in your cities and from your plugin folder before installing this plugin!

P.S. I don't know whether this rail system is compatible with the other rail systems yet.
If anybody likes to make it compatible, please feel free to adjust the JSON accordingly. Just post it below or in the inter-station thread.
