I have a question and two suggestions.
My question : I just tried the FRISS (finnish infrastructure) set together with the 0.5.8 Finnish Train Set, and I noticed that there are narrow gauge semaphores and signals (in the settings). Does that mean the Finnish Set will include narrow gauge trains as well, or is the FRISSet designed to work with other train sets ?
My two suggestions :
1 - Could it be possible to switch off the locomotives ambient noises, via a parameter for example ? They are really well done, but a bit annoying sometimes.
2 - Could it be possible to group some of the passenger and mail coaches together ? For example all the intercity coaches under one ID, and then all the varieties available by refit. The buying list would be less crowded, and it would help to make consistent trains: instead of selecting carefully the coaches you need (and making mistakes, just buy one type of coach (intercity coach for example), and then refit to your needs (intercity 2nd class, intercity saloon, and so on).
This train set is really promising, really well drawn, I really like it. I wish you good luck!
Narrow gauge will be eventually in another Finnish set. FRISS should eventually work with other narrow gauge trainsets.
And your suggestions:
1) There should be already a switch inside OpenTTD's settings where you can disable all vehicle sounds. Later we'll add a switch to disable them on NewGRF settings window.
2) Wagon/coach types will be kept separate, so one can easily read types and desprictions regardless of coaches/wagons on consist view. If those coaches/wagons would be combined and available via refitting, one wouldn't find those easily when wanted, in addition of not finding certain wagon type and desprictions on the consist view, which helps on certain occasions. Rolling stock is grouped on buying window by default for certain types.
