2.0.1 alpha 48

Post by Patchman »

Hi all,

here's the latest alpha: http://www.ttdpatch.net/src/

This time I had some time to work on PBS a bit more. It's getting ever
closer to working 100%. To make it a bit more customizable, it's now a
bit switch, see the manual page for more details. As a consequence, I've
removed the "noautopbsblocks" miscmods settings since it's been absorbed
into the pathbasedsignalling switch proper.

In addition, I've modified the gamespeed switch a little. It now
displays the current speed setting in the statusbar to the right (if
faster) or left (if slower) of the date. The fastest setting is now
much, much faster in fullscreen, running the game at the maximum speed
your CPU can cope with.

I've also added a new sign cheat, "Cht: DeleteVehs" that removes from the
game all of your vehicles on the tile where you place the cheat.
Sometimes vehicles get stuck badly and can't be removed, this sign cheat
is a last resort to fix that situation by simply removing all vehicles on
that tile from the game.

Finally, Mek has again surpassed himself and made diagonal rails
draggable, so that you can now build those pesky stretches with just a
simple drag of the mouse. He also added some new miscmods settings that
fixed a limitation in TTD that required industries to be close to the
station *sign* to deliver cargo to the industry, as well as completely
disabling messages about vehicles getting old.

Have fun!

- action D can now access patch switch parameters through GRFID
- added bitwise AND and OR to action D ops

- by Mek:
* NS and EW rails are now also draggable

distance between station-sign and industry for cargo accepted
at the station to appear at the industry, and one to disable
the vehicle is getting old news-messages

Damn, better the TTDPatch is, less time I have to play TTD .... Grrrr!

Finally, Mek has again surpassed himself and made diagonal rails
draggable, so that you can now build those pesky stretches with just a
simple drag of the mouse.
IMHO this is the most significant and important improvement to the gameplay
since.... hmmm... ever :D (umless there will be diagonal bridges available

Last few alphas were released very often. You've done a lot of good work.
Can't wait for 2.0.1a49 :)
