[Mod] Signs for train/metro networks [metrosigns]

by Josselin2 » Post

This mod provides an extensive collection of signs for use in your train and metro systems.

Image

The mod includes:
  • Semi-realistic signage from twenty major cities - the London Underground, the Paris Metro, the New York Subway - and more!
  • Line and platform number signs from 1-99
  • A sign-writing machine (for use in survival mode)
  • Nodes from advtrains_subwayblocks and trainblocks, if they aren't already loaded
  • Over 1400 items in total
The mod includes and builds on material from the following mods:
Dependencies: Requires Minetest v5.0 (or later). There are no hard dependencies.

Optional dependencies: If default and basic_materials are loaded, the sign writing machine and ink cartridges are craftable. If signs_api from display_modpack is loaded, you can create signs with customisable text (as in the screenshot above).

Downloads: Zip, or browse the code.

Licences: CC-BY-SA 3.0 Unported for the sign writing machine and ink cartridges, GNU Affero GPL for everything else.

Instructions: Most signs are disabled by default. See the README to find out how to enable them (scroll down to find it).

Great work, Joss! :) Staggering how many options are here.
If you want realism, you're in the wrong place. Get off your mobile.

For the benefit of anyone who found the sign-writing machine unusable: I have hopefully succeeded in fixing it.

I made a few improvements in today's release:
  • Testing suggests the ink capacity is not enough for practical use, so I doubled it
  • In the sign writer, I added ability to shift-click cartridges and plastic in and out of their slots
  • There is now a second set of signs with custom text. This new set has a reddish background, and means something like "You are here"
  • Several textures have been improved (translation: the old textures were rubbish)
