  • On extension page are currently missing 2 sections which are also extensions but information on them is excluded onto other sites (from discussion at my blog post):


    Street extensions at 2nd station
    Street extensions at 3rd station

    • Yes, I was aware of this.  Thanks for pointing it out, though.  I haven't yet decided how I'm going to handle this data in the new format.

  • FYI - here is translation of TranStation Game Support's reply from Slovak into English language. There are totally 4 messages (she excused me once more & I was encouraging her to use TS Wiki forum in case they would have some new infromation source available).


    Hello Rastislav,

    Thank you very much for your inspiring mail.

    We would like to provide the data, but unfortunately even we ourselves do not have them written in a form with which you would need for further work.

    Sorry about that, because we would certainly like to give them for further processing.

    If such a database will be created by us during the foreseeable future, we will contact you.

    Thank you for your understanding and we wish you lots of fun with TrainStation.

    Sincerely, Natalia.

  • Hello Pella.

    I have been working on Contractor Station Street Sizes major update and as a last step I started to add contractor potrait images into the table. However they are taking too much vertical space (exactly above and under of text descriptions). I would like to have the table similar to your Themes page, but I don't know how have you done the elimination of vertical space wasting?

    Thanks, Rastislav.


    P.S.: What do you mean about my recent changes on the page Contractor Station Street Sizes? Everything's ok there? Any feed-back would be welcome :)

    • Yes, I understand the need to keep some reverse-compatibility very well (I would say it also helps to keep some reasonable accessibility from mobile devices). I just noticed that during past years has adaptive page layouts become quite popular (the page size is designed as flexible so its layout behaves depending on your current display parametres).

    • Pella, I have just finished my revisions on Contracts hub page. Here are the results:

      • 1. All column widths are now set-up as relative in %.
      • 2. Thanks for your suggestion about Contractors' Shop Links. I had also similar feeling - these column appered to have quite disturbing effect on me :) . And I agree that it is not as important compared to other columns. I felt sorry to just remove it so I came up with sort of compromise. I kept the data however I moved them to last column and rewrote them into compact & reduced layout in order to take less space and don't disturb reader's attention. What do you think about this solution?
      • 3. I allocated small part of table width as a reservoir for different browsers behaviour. I think that there shouldn't be finally any horizontal scroll-bars present. Is it ok by you? I even downloaded & installed your Waterfox browser to test if everything is allright :) .
      • 4. Last of all: I am really sorry to report you that column % width configuration has ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT on images. Conclusion? If you try to restrict big image proportions with column % configuration (instead of image px parameter), table will just completely ignore it and it will overflow :( ... It looks like I am running out of options. I prepared a demonstration revision to let you see what I have just described above  (focus on Seasonal Contractors). Please take a look and tell me if you have any ideas?

  • Hi Pella.

    I have my own Dropbox account but only way to exchange information is via Shared folder (you can invite me [connected => e-mail deleted]. Shared files can be modified only by you, other users can just view it.

  • Hello.

    I noticed your recent Special Offer edits. I am sure you must mismatched they year. It was certainly November 2011, not November 2013 (Vintage July 2012 should be correct).

    Best regards, Rastislav.

  • I definietly like adding color to the info box to help them stand out on that page. Maybe try two shades of deep blue similar to the two colors used in your user info box above?

    • Yeah, I was aware of the conflict when I created the purple boxes. It was the best solution I found to contrast with the links, though.

      So, KmamK's first choice = Mhommer's last choice.  LOL ...Any other suggestions?  Still waiting for Rastislav to finish this semester and issue his response, too.

    • oh I'm flexable, you guys hae a good sence of what works and what doesn't. I am not opposed to re-design and coming up with a new standard for the whole site in terms of colors. The colors we have now were just trown together one infobox at a time. There wasn't a lot of looking at the bigger picture and eveything we wanted to or should color code.

  • corrected borders: 2nd_Rail, 4thRail, MaglevRail
    3rdStreet.png uploaded

    but didn't find 2ndStreet and 5thStreet
    (streetext & 2ndStat corrected some time before)

    • 2ndStreet, 5thStreet uploaded.

      Guess you corrected the others after the last time I downloaded.  All good.  Still need a 3rdStation, too.  I don't have access to that yet.

  • What do you think about a category "TemplateData" (or something like this), for all templates that already have the TD-code implemented. There aren't any yet, but once we begin creating TemplateData for the templates, it would be a nice overview, which tempaltes are ready.

      Loading editor
    • Category:Trainstation_Templates is used for our main templates. I would suggest, rather than adding a new category to all the templates that will be converted, that it might be better just to keep a log on the main category page of what has been converted.

        Loading editor
    • I agree with Kata on this one.

      How do we keep a log, just in the chat at the bottom?  Or is there a cleaner method?  Ideally, the log would be some kind of list we could edit, so we could keep it in alphabetical order for easier reference.

        Loading editor
    • Right, reason I thought about an additional category was that not every template is listed in "Trainstation Templates" (or Subcategories). Still the log is probably better.

      As log we could use a table below the sentence "Use template {{TSTemp}} to include a template into this category". Possible headings would be:

      • name (/template name),
      • date (/last update) and
      • status (e.g. done, work in progress, etc.)

  • Im assuming you buy two lakesides to make four cars for the set, am I right on this? Ive looked and looked Im only seeing three cars for the set.

      Loading editor
    • That is correct. You can use any number of any of the cars that are part of the set. So it can be four of just one type of car.
