Hey all ok I'm a bit confused I can't figure out how to transition from glr to tram in avenue.

I've looked in the NAM docs and looked several times in the other transportation menu. I did not find a transition and can't figure out any other way to accomplish the transition.

Any ideas? Did I miss something?

How hard are you really looking? Because the third piece in the TiA tab-ring for example is a TiA to GLR + BiDirectional OWR transition. There are many other transition pieces further through the tab-ring, I'd recommend just taking a moment to go through the various pieces, it will help you to understand the possibilities on offer.

  • Sorry worded that wrong!

    I should have said is there a straight plain glr to tia transition. I did see owr one and also a couple of other possibilities I was just hoping for just a plain straight through transition. So I guess will have to go for one of the others, I just didn't need all the other connections.

    OK, I understand, but how would a TiA tranistion to an avenue and a GLR network? If no avenue previously exists next to the GLR, do you want the avenue to just start out of nowhere? Make sure to check the TiR and ToR tab rings too, there are additional transition pieces there that might be helpful. But none of which where the Avenue just ends abruptly when the GLR leaves it.

    So you are either looking at the BiDirectional OWR + GLR in median piece, otherwise there are pieces where the GLR transitions from the TiA with the Avenue part converting to a road (4 lanes into 2), which stay at 2 tiles width. Similarly, if you transition the GLR away from the avenue, the GLR can exit either diagonally or at a 90 deg angle to the Avenue. You can even have a transition from a TiA T-Intersection, there are plenty of potential solutions here.

  • My Bad! You're right. I have no idea where my head was, sure wasn't in the game! I spent the day playing around with all those transitions and pieces. Found a few things that I was looking for that I could actually do with those pieces!

    Thanks for waking me up!

        Purpose of these lots: all GLR stations posted on the STEX till now act as tram stops, only converting GLR to and from pedestrian traffic. In contrast, this pack contains stations that offer parking facilities as well. As a result they can serve larger, less dense areas and not just the housing within walking distance from the station, utilising the game's "park and ride" feature: sims park their cars at the station and get the train to their workplaces. So they can be used successfully in suburban areas, enjoying a good usage. You can create a realistic transport system, like in many real-world metropolitan areas, that is subways downtown, expanded to GLR at the suburbs (you will need to use the GLR to subway transition). You can also combine the stations with bus routes; in this case fixed-track networks (like GLR) tend to act as "trunk" lines, while the buses as "local" or "feeder" lines.
        The pack contains four GLR stations with parking, with straight and split track (side or island platforms), with and without a bus stop. The main station building as well as the platform and bussign props are configurable by the player. Some of the props are included in the SC dats while some others are included in BATs posted on the STEX earlier, which you will have to download and install as dependencies. Please check the readme for detailed installation instructions.
        Stats:
        Lot Size 5x2 Plop Cost $800 ($1000 for stations w/ busstop) Maintenance $40 ($50) Capacity 5000 (6000) plus 3000 allowance for the through GLR traffic Power Consumed 8 (10) MWh/mo Water Consumed 10 (10) cu.m/mo Pollution (A/W/G) 4/4/4 (5/5/5) Jobs (all $) 8 (10)
        Credits:
        - Many thanks to vester_DK for his GLR split-track textures.
        - Many thanks to frogface, ill tonkso and ralphaelninja for granting permission to use their models in the package.
        - Morifari can no longer be contacted (his model is not contained in the package anyway).

        * June 27 2008 Update:
        - Added a patch for left-hand driving installations. Unless you have a LH-driving installation, do not forget to remove this!
        - Fixed a bug with the transit switchings, concerning stations' placement. If you have installed the Draggable GLR Patch for these stations, please remove it (it contains the same bugs). Refer to the documentation for details and instructions on how to connect to draggable GLR track.

        Dependencies:
        The most important dependencies are the NAM and
        -PORKIE PROPS VOL1 EUROPEAN STREET ACCESSORIESby porkissimo.

        Some other dependencies are prop-specific and you will need to download and install them only if you configure the package to use them (ie you don't need all of them, only the ones you like and you wish to use). These dependencies are:
        - London Underground Walford East station by frogface
        - Tonkso GLR Station by ill tonkso
        - Russell Square Tube Station by ill tonkso
        - Ninja Boulevard Station OR Ninja Boulevard Kiosk by RalphaelNinja
        - Morifari Tram Station by morifari - Please get this new version!

        UPDATED:  The entire station has now been reworked, including LODs, transit enabling, custom icon, and readme file. 
         
        All credit for the update goes to Andreas Roth, who took the model and reconfigured the entire lot around it.  Thanks Andreas!  Special thanks also goes to Coego for his zebra crossing (the texture is included in the folder)!
