Moderator: Graphics Moderators
There is a proposal to make vehicle introduction dates synchronized across vehicles, if the start date is set to the same value. The actual introduction date will still be randomized, but it will be to the same value.
This would likely benefit most sets allowing carriages/wagons to be introduced alongside engines.
There is no additional flag to enable or disable this behaviour. If you are a set author and think this proposal is a good idea or a bad idea, please comment either on the github link or here.
It solves a problem where specific engines and wagons/coaches should be introduced simultaneously.
This solution appeals because
- it doesn't remove random introductions
- it offers fine grained control (it's based on specific calendar dates, not just years)
- it doesn't require changes to newgrf spec or authoring tools
- it doesn't require newgrfs to explicitly support it by using a new property or callback
