|Homepage||UK Renewal Set for TTDP|
The UK Renewal Set or UKRS is a set drawn and coded by PikkaBird (with some vehicles by DanMack) that re-introduces improved UK trains into OpenTTD or TTDPatch. It uses some complicated NewGRF features, yet is almost 100% compatible with OpenTTD. The set uses newsounds, which, in the nightlies, makes new running sounds and horns.
It is most probably the most popular Graphic Set in use with OpenTTD due to this and its wide selection of vehicles. Wagons come in different generations, starting with slow, low capacity wagons, and ending with large capacity, fast wagons.
Some features include:
- Steam locomotives with tenders.
- Locomotives with differing liveries.
- Different generations of wagons, from 2 axle wagons to long, bogey wagons.
- Running sounds and horn/whistle sounds
- Dual Company Colour liveries.
- Works with AI
There are 12 steam engines, 15 Diesel Engines (including DMU), 7 electric engines, and 8 futuristic engines, the last available in 2039, and is available for conventional rail. The above features which do no yet work in OTTD have their support being developed.
There is also a small "add on" GRF file adding a few new vehicles to the UKRS, which can be found on the TT-Forums discussion thread.
There is also a industry set that is available as of 0.6.0's inclusion of Newindustries. This replaces the current industries and adds new features such as maximum monthly output, but it is deemed obsolete. PBI  and the UKRS Industries Brick Chain  are recommended instead.
