I’d like to make a thread for suggestion and post my suggestions for the developers here. If anyone has more suggestions, just dump them in. 🙂
I think the particle effects – mainly smoke – should be tweaked and improved, here are a few images to demonstrate:
I’m not sure if this house is on fire or the people inside are severe chain smokers. Anyway, smoke emission seems quite high. I’d suggest to tweak the particle system to make the smoke look less thick.
From another angle:
OpenGl and blending issues, yay… :'(
More vehicle content
I think this one is pretty straightforward. The game has a modding community, though, so this one isn’t very important, I guess.
More key inputs
For example, I love how Maxis has done time controls in their games, where the numeric 1-2-3 keys were used to set the respective speed multiplier. Would be great for convenience if Train Fever used more key combos.
I really miss this in the game, simple loops like traffic is cities (depending on size) or birds and wind in forests / plains would add a great amount of value to the game’s mood and feel.
