Hi,

What do you think of this feature :

When a client disconnects, if the company is empty, then it is automatically cleared.

you can try it on this server : openttd.goulp.net:3981

let me know your feeling.

What happens when one disconnects because of a failing connection? I think setting autoclean to 1-3 months would be a better idea.

In the source code, you can detect a failling connection. I made this test : an empty company with company building and some tracks but no vehicles. I kill the process (under windows). The server detects the connection failed and company is still there.

Server avaible at openttd.goulp.net:3982

What is the purpose of the patch?
A player is not going to sell all his assets, and leave the company alive. Even if some of them do, you still have to take care of players that tidy up less.

To avoid empty companies. Some players connect to the game, create new company and leave immediatly. instead of using the "spectate" function.
