May I ask for simple feature: 'wallet' deposit, where I can send 100kGPB (or all by ctrl) from main account, or back?
Deposited money would not be used for current expenses, unless transferred back to the current account.

In case of hard basecosts settings it is a nightmare, to drain all water from ocean and money from account by one mouse slippery movement.
It is also impossible to saving money and protect them against automatic renew of expensive vehicles, without switching whole renew off.
Above proposed feature would solve such issues.

I'm not really sure about the benefit/cost of implementing this to be honest. It seems a bit out of scope compared to other features which have been requested or could be developed.

Is there any JGR pack for Android? I want to play jgr pack a lot, but I can't find any apk file based on JGR pack. Or is there any pre-patched pack for android?

Bug found, JGR v0.16.0

I tested this on a completely fresh install of jgr v0.16.0, no newgrfs or personal config file...
This used to work as expected on v0.14.0

-----

Train 1 visits 2 stations and is then ordered to stop in the nearest depot. It enters the depot but then leaves immediately.

Train 2 on an identical track layout is ordered to stop in a specific depot. This it does as expected.

Thanks for the savegame, this is now fixed and will be in the next release.
This was related to the timetabled wait in depot and timetable automation mechanisms.

Hi JGR. First of all thank you for all your work you did and still do on this patchpack. It's simply great and I really appreciate it! However I gathered a small list of questions/issues which I want to propound here to you.

1. Names of vehicle groups are ordered like text strings in the list. If you have many groups of identical names distinguished just by numbers, it's ordered like this: XYZ 1, XYZ 10, XYZ 11 .... XYZ 2, XYZ 20, XYZ 21 etc. Could it be possible to order it by numbers?
2. Is it possible to overpass limit of 5000 vehicles of one kind (road, ships...)? When you play just with horse carriages and sailing ships for a long time you inevitably hit this limit earlier or later. Eventually when trains and engines arrive the number or road vehicles goes down rapidly.
3. Repairing costs patch. When an old vehicle stops in depot and is automaticly replaced with a new one you are charged for both, repairing cost of the old vehicle and purchase price of the new one. Is really necessary to repair it before selling it to scrap? :)
4. Some stations have suspiciously bad rating comparing to another ones (passenger stations in most cases) although they are serviced regularly. There are hundreds and thousands of passengers waiting for their transport in many of my stations, but these ones are nearly empty. See the savegame.

Thank you for your interest.

4) If playing with cargodist the ratings are linked too... if one station has bad rating, all other stations that are linked with same cargo type (pass?) go down too.

Post subject:  Re: JGR's Patch Pack

I have never experienced something like that. Maybe with some NewGRF? Rating is solely dependent on servicing of given station and disasters which happen nearby. Nevertheless, that's not the case. See the savegame.

From version 1.4.1, transfer stations also should have a cargo rating. Cargodist works like kind of implicit transfer.

Truly said, I don't know exactly what does it mean, but I think it cannot explain that bad rating. The station in question is not just transfer station, people can begin and finish their travel there.

Open cargo flow legend, switch all companies and passengers on, you can see red link between Shady Falls Hotel S and Shady Falls - lot of peoples, transported by ships from Boneyard Hotel Z, are waiting for further transfer,
that explains your bad rating in Boneyard. There is no matter if you have or not explicit transfer orders, station rating depend on congestion in all intermediate stations until final destination of a given passenger group. It is standard openttd behaviour since 1.4.1 and is not related with this patch pack.

Back to the topic. Your suggestion of removing repair payment in case of engine replacement is worth to consider. Sometimes there are old vehicles stalled at exhausted mine, such vehicles with 0% reliability would drain a lot of money from unnecessary repair, then sent to scrap.

Post subject:  Re: JGR's Patch Pack

What about repair payment depends of % repaired too? Using max reliability of train repaired and the difference of % repaired and max? Now It's a function of % of price only isn't? I know it make more complex, but more real if playing with higher repair costs it could add an interesting difficulty to the game (even late game).

And a Go to Depot order (or the vehicle window order to Depot) should not cost anything I think it's a nice idea too if it's possible. Only the maintence or splicit ordet to maintence should cost.

OK. and what about cost of fixing purchase of company shares?
These also would be a good method of protecting part of company funds, but usually are switched off due to unfair issue: you can purchase shares for 1$ each and sell them for millions, because only condition is to check against company age (in case of difficult settings, 6 years old companies still have negative company value).

I propose to disable share purchasing, if company value is below maximal loan setting, economy.cpp code:
Code:
if ((_cur_year - c->inaugurated_year < 6) || (c->company_value>_economy.max_loan)) return_cmd_error(STR_ERROR_PROTECTED); 
(maybe rounding of company value is necessary for protecting against desync?)


Other remarks:
1. signals on bridges/tunnels doesn't count into infrastructure maintenance costs.
2. I have a blue (?) instead of measurement icon, is it my fault, or a common issue?

Understood. I know what cargodest is and how it works. I know it's part of OpenTTD since 1.4.1 and how it behave normally. I know it's not related to this patchpack, but I can't post it elsewhere since I play the patchpack and not the official version. I do not post much, but I read the forum carefully.
But I still can't comprehend why rating of these stations waver between 15 and 55% in a few years when there are many similarly serviced stations scattered all over the map which don't show this kind of behavior. My ships travel half-empty because of that bad rating. In most cases you have insufficient capacity for passengers with many thousands of them awaiting their travel and not reversely. One more savegame attached.
And what about my other questions?

I can look into these at some point.

This seems like a bug to me, I'll see about sorting this out.

You have oversaturated links with large backlogs of waiting cargo, hence your rating at those stations for the cargo in question is poor.

In the ship link indicated in your last savegame, your ships run half empty because your road vehicle links to the docks are insufficient, such that you have cargo waiting to use the ship link which has accumulated in the other stations.

Is this really a problem that needs "fixing"?

That is the icon which is used for the measurement functionality in the landscape toolbar.

BTW, I decreased repair costs to 1, but instead I get huge repair costs, twice as new vehicle value.
Probably a bug, I noticed in vehicle.cpp, that repair cost is divided, instead of multiplied.

Yes that's right. The setting text indicates a fraction, hence decreasing the denominator increases the resulting value. I can see about lengthening the explanatory text.
The issue of repair costs being applied when replacing the vehicle will be fixed in future.

Edit:
These are both done and should be in the next release.

It seems that this is implemented using ICU, and the Windows binaries are built without that. I can see about adding it to the Windows builds if it's not too much uphill work.

I've bumped it to 10k, the hard limit of the number of vehicles/vehicle parts still exists though.

Hi, is there any way I can get this wonderful patch pack working on linux without compiling? (for example a .deb would be great, I'm running Ubuntu 16.04)
