Hello,
I would like to request new feature: a lock icon next to locked company name in list of companies while playing in-game.
In order to visually represent what I'd like to be implemented, see following picture:

So basically it would be similar to how currently the list of companies work in Multiplayer menu while joining a server:

While I am looking at the picture from Multiplayer menu, maybe even this indicator of "successful company" could be also added to the list. :)
If you deem this feature useless, then ignore it, but in case you'll decide to implement it into the game, I'd grateful for that.

You mean you want the same info ingame as when joining the server? That is "password set" and "positive earnings last year (quarter?)"?

Exactly!

Anyway, the reason why I am asking for this feature: I am always joining any Multiplayer game using the "Spectate" button, because in case I don't like the server (no trees or very little - I like trees, so when there are none, I leave immediately; train does not break at all - I don't like easy difficulty so again - I am leaving immediately, etc.) I don't want to create new company blocking spot for a player who actually might want to play on such server. Then when I am in-game and I like the server, I will create new company. But in case the server is full, I'll start looking for an abandoned company for which nobody plays and is "free" (no password set) - but that's a little bit tedious because I need to open every company and see if it's locked or not. With this feature I would be able to see directly which company is free.

showing protected status ingame should be possible, but showing performance before logging in might be a problem, because that needs transferring that information before transferring the savegame

I like it. I now have a patch for it which I will create a PR for later.

Damn, it's been in patched clients for so long that I though it's a vanilla feature :P
