This is the main tracking table of the 8bpp Graphics Replacement Project. The ultimate aim of this project is to have a full replacement set of graphics, so that OpenTTD can be distributed freely without the need of the copyrighted graphics from the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe. The table below indicates what's done and what's being done. There is also a tracking table for advanced features for the new graphics. This page lists all missing graphics that will need to be drawn for a total graphics replacement and shows their status in the tables below. If you want to draw something then add your name to the appropriate section and change the status to Work in Progress, {{WIP}}. When you are finished, change the status to Done, {{Done}} and link to the graphics published at TT-Forums.

The latest progress can be followed in the Transport Tycoon Forums. This wiki article will generally be the most up to date status of the project. See the OpenGFX Readme on how to get the latest alpha release.

Progress

There are 6990 sprites to be replaced in the original TTD grf files.

Key areas needing work are GUI, bridges, buildings and industries. Other infrastructure and the landscape are largely complete.

Key areas needing work are still GUI, bridges, buildings and industries. Vehicles are currently progressing steadily.

Key areas for more work are town buildings and aeroplanes. Once the "conventional" climates are finished the focus will shift to toyland.

The project is now completed for 74% of a total of 6992 sprites, or 89% of 5635 sprites if not counting toyland.

Key areas needing work on opengfx1r.grf are the remaining town buildings and monorail and maglev vehicles.

List of reported bugs

The list of bugs has been moved to the Issue Tracker. Either report bugs there or post a message in the release topic. Thanks!

Contributer Guidelines

Artwork

New art is being drawn in the style of the original game, using the original 8bpp palette. The graphics should be a similar but distinct version of the object in question - no graphics may be copied at all from the original. The new sprites do not have to be the same size as the original, but need to be similar so as to fit into the game as expected. Where possible glitches/bugs in the original graphics should be avoided, for example the original snow line transition was in steps, whereas the new graphics give a smooth transition.

Coding

This is a graphics replacement project, not an opportunity to code additional features into the game. Additional features for the game, such as more vehicles, new vehicle statistics, climate specific road markings etc. will have to be released as a separate GRF.

List of missing sprites

All sprites from the original base graphics now have an OpenGFX version, there are no missing sprites! Many sprites do, however, need improvement. Post any updates in the tt-forums thread.
