    Default Ascendia, a new city and a new station of the Telara Rail Road.

    A New city: Ascendia



    This city have many districts in the city part:
    -Kelari district
    -Sand district (with a beach!)
    -Shell district
    -Mathosian district
    -Cemetery

    There is also a forest, a farm, two wind turbines and planar-nuclear power-plant in the other side of the train tracks.





    And of course there is a train station. A new one of the Telara Rail Road!


    This station is a railhead for TRR in Mathosia.
    In the station, two trains! (first time i built two train in a dimension!)
    The second train of the Ghar series. (The first one is in "Gare de l'infini")


    And a partially new one. A remake of the Empyrean train. I'll call this new serie: Neo-Empyreann train.


    (a picture of the old empyrean train model for comparaison:

    )


    So with this new station, The Telara rail road look like this:




    Futures updates:
    -The Haunted terminal is finally here, so Tempest Bay will finally get a train station! (soon)
    -The rail road is going to south mathosia with the "Gare Chatoyante" projet.
    -A presentation of the "Gare de l'infini". This station is already done, and it open the way to the planes.


    All my dimensions are on Brisesol. Search Aeryle and you will find them (even when there are guild dimension or on my rerolls)

    Another wonderful train station. Fantastic concept, too.

    Great work.

    IMO they should replace ports with train stations.

    Specifically, this one.

    Great work.

    Finally thought about giving it a visit.

    The rail road concept is a pretty cool idea, and Ascendia is pretty huge. The only criticism I have is that due to the limited visibility range (which is not your fault, of course) I didn't quite know where I find the actual train station and ran into a couple of empty buildings first.
    Maybe you can "nudge" the visitors in the right direction a bit.

    Also, I'd love to visit the other dimensions in a virtual trip according to your maps, but I have a really hard time reading the text. I don't know if those images get modified on upload, but when saving jpegs with colored text, make sure to not use chroma subsampling, because it totally kills such text no matter what compression setting. Full resolution chroma is often called "4:4:4", that's what you want when creating such jpegs, otherwise you need to use a high brightness contrast.

    The Train station is generally near the dimension entry point. (some train station have some exceptions). There is always a wagon as decoration near the entrance of the station.

    Images were modified on upload.

    Thanks for the updated images, png is a good alternative of course

    So I just did a virtual train trip, and apparently I have a talent for running straight in the wrong direction and get lost
    But sooner or later I found the departure platforms in all dimensions.
    In Ascendia I just should've turned around 180...

    Anyway, gave me some ideas what I might try in my dimensions.

    Your trains and railways are great, I like the bright colors and glass tiles in the station and these new trains are very nice.
