Merged from: Vehicles and Ships

1. Having coaster harbour.
2. Building garage doors in coaster harbour.

Code: Select all

Object:          Garage door
Time to build:   5-10 days
Resources:       1500g iron, 500g steel
Tools:           hammer
Allows moving vehicle into the building

3. Moving vehicle to coaster harbour.
4. Moving (docking?) vehicle on ship.

What do you think about it?

Side question: Is there any diffrence between words "ship" and "vessel"? According to Langenscheidt`s Polish-English dictionary, they booth describe the same thing. If so, why do you have two diffrent words describing the one term? ;)

Transport

2000 g steel
2000 g iron
6000 g wood

15 days
hammer, screwdriver

Can transport 10 people or 2 vehices and 2 people

Can dock everywhere - so this not need changes in dockable buildings


I think it's an issue of programming, rather than what it would require to make something to do it. Vehicles are, I assume, only limited to outdoor locations at the moment, and something extra would have to be added to be able to drag them indoors.

As for 'ship' and 'vessel' - vessel can mean ship, as in a boat, in English, it can also be used to mean a container of any kind - land or sea, big or small (i.e: drinking vessel = cup)

This might be a new suggestion but how about being able to paint or disguise a stolen car so that someone who has seen marked it as stolen is not able to see its stolen still...but it would be nice if there was still some way you could proove its really stolen....any ideas?

Just resuggesting an important idea. I know it's been talked about before but nothing's happened so resuggestion time! XD :D

Because I'm naive enough to assume that my bar-stool programmer suggestion for implementation hasn't been considered already, I'm gonna post it here.

I imagine the number 1 issue of putting vehicles into buildings/boats is that vehicles.

So. An added button when inside the vehicle, which requires the person who activates it to have a key which mathces the vehcile lock (or can be done by anyone if no lock is present).

This 'packs' the vehicle for transport/storage. The vehicle is changed from a location to an object, of the same weight as the vehcile.

Anything inside the vehicle upon packing gets dumped outside the vehicle.

The fuel tank gets emptied too, and dumped outside the vehicle.

This object can then be pushed/pulled into/out of boats and 'unpacked' via the object 'use' button at any time.

Somehow the object would have to save properties of the lock numbers and degrade status, and dynamic names...

Far too complicated :)

vehicles are locations as are buildings , towns and interior rooms and thus they don't need converting to another type of object - we already have code for handling objects withing locations within locations etc - We effectively have vehicles within locations already when boats dock to other boats

It's basically just a land movement issue where the vehicle moves from one parent location to another. There are some weight calculation issues but these are minor (internal rooms don't count towards building capacity, vehicles and their contents will have to - as boats currently do). That said the most complex routines (and longest) are the movement between locations code .

Posts from a duplicate thread - Towing vehicles using other vehicles is really an extension of the idea of Garages.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just thought about this when I had to make two long trips just to collect my bike. How about being able to tow vehicles with other vehicles?

BENEFITS: When fuel is implemented, ones that run out of fuel in the middle of no-where can eb towed back home

If a vehicle is left in a location someone can come along in a vehicle and take it away, instead of two people having to come

You could "steal" people's vehicles away when they arn't looking, and pick the locks in small locations where they arn't going to care

HOW IT WOULD WORK: Just like docking, only larger vehicles can drag smaller ones, and it would effect their speed (And therefore *Sigh* make them less fuel efficient)

I think to make it fair you would have to have the key to the smaller vehicle to attach it to the larger vehicle, just like with boats where you have to attach the smaller vehicle to the larger, not vice versa. If we do that, then I love it.

Yea, I agree with that. Either have a key or it has to be unlocked/have no lock.

Indoor parking or garages

Postby Zisrith » Mon Jan 25, 2010 6:58 pm

If there was a new kind of extension with a big door like a garage, you could park vehicles inside. Or perhaps an operation could be done on an existing extension to put in a garage door, making it possible to park your vehicle(s) inside.
The idea came to me when I saw what I initially thought was a vehicle arriving in town and enter a bunch of buildings. It turned out to be someone I couldn't remember meeting.
