After 16 days of radio silence, I've decided to give a taste of what's to come. See the first post for the teaser.
None ship are available.
1) What's your first language? I can tell it's not English. If you want, it might be easier for you to continue this conversation in your own language while I make do with a Google translation.
2) There's only one ship right now, the Fastnet Paddle Steamer, which comes out in 1880. More will come later.
2a) Do you have vehicle expiration turned off?
2a1) If so, have you tried a starting date such as 2100 to see if it shows up?
2a2) If not, have you tried starting in 1885 to ensure it hasn't expired?
2b) If 2a1 and 2a2 don't work, what year are you using as a start date and with what vehicle expiration setting?
3) If all of 2) doesn't solve the problem, are you using any of the following NewGRFs alongside blueFISH? FISH 0.9.2, redFISH, SQUID
3a) If so, which ones?
3b) If not, what other NewGRFs do you have loaded?
4) If all of 3) doesn't solve the problem, what type of OpenTTD installation are you using? Stable? Trunk? NotRoadTypes fork? New Map Features? JGR's Patch Pack? Spring Patch Pack? A patched version you compiled yourself?
4a) If Stable, 1.7.0 or a past version?
4b) If Trunk, which version(s) have you encountered the problem in?
4c) If NotRoadTypes, are you using the latest version?
4d) If New Map Features, which version and from which of the branches?
4e) If JGR's Patch Pack, are you using the latest version?
4e1) If so, I'll have to talk to JGR.
4e2) If not, does the latest version change that?
4e2a) If so, is the problem fixed or just different?
4e2a1) If just different, I'll have to talk to JGR.
4e2b) If not, I'll have to talk to JGR.
4f) If Spring Patch Pack, which version?
4g) If a self-compiled version, I'll need a copy of your installation to investigate.
