Wanted contributions / patches

Post by planetmaker » 10 Mar 2012 09:43

The primary place for patches and issues is on GitHub:
https://github.com/OpenTTD/OpenTTD/issu ... t+issue%22

Thus if you're interested in helping and wonder what to do: Go to GitHub. It's probably a good idea to check how up to date it is and also asking on IRC about the status of the tasks listed there / the one you're interested in.


There are a few less-maintained places in the wiki:
For people interested in helping OpenTTD's development we created a small todo list of wanted features and patches which require no in-depth knowledge of OpenTTD's source code.

It also includes a section of tasks which require no coding skill at all.

I like that you have composed a list like that. That will give some guidance on things to work on for people wanting to contribute patches to OpenTTD.

Note that anyone wanting to add a text filter to saveload or to the server list will need to add a button that opens a query window to set the filter string, unless they first make a patch that allows more than one text edit control per window.

Ok, the "save window" part of that task went to "hard tasks" :)

Small update: We made the descriptions of the tasks more verbose - hopefully :)

It looks like the list hasn't been updated in quite a while.

Is it current?

Last change (before I added a new suggestion) was March 2017, so people do seem to change it every now and then.

Nonetheless, likely it generally pays to check in-game of the current status, as well as on the bugrtracker to check if someone has submitted a fix already.
Being a OpenTTD developer does not mean I know what I am doing.
Also, other OpenTTD developers may have different opinions.
