Looking good mate:D

just a note to you:
Most vehicle devs balance their running/puchase costs, including the base costs for purchase and running costs, so you should either avoid changeing them, or even better: find the grfID for the most popular vehicle sets, and adjust accordingly.

Hi DJ Nekkid,

Thanks for your note. This NewGrf should be used only with original openttd vehicle set. It works well when no other cost altering grfs are installed.

The other way round.

@brisky
It would be nice if you guys with those "basecost.grfs" would announce the grf-ID somewhere outside the grf itself (e.g. here, in the "release" subsection of the forums) to ease the life of vehicle set authors.

regards
Michael

If you modify the basecosts in your set, another basecosts grf doesn't have influence. If you don't change the costs, the grf has influence which is imo quite nice. (in OTTD)

Anyway, if someone loads a basecosts grf, he should be aware, that he does screw up the settings.

And for the IDs: http://grfcrawler.tt-forums.net/index.p ... base+costs
