In the absence of buy-menu extra text (don't ask), and an unfinished readme...

BAD FEATURES to know about

- reefer cars and edibles tank cars have a cargo decay rate bonus.
- Double Juice loco has more power on electrified rails.
- cabeese do nothing, just eye candy.
- tank engines have randomised forward / reversed graphics.
- wagons are randomised 1st / 2nd company colour. If you don't like the effect, set 2nd company colour same as first.
- Metro and Narrow Gauge vehicles show up if you have an appropriate track set (Termite is recommended).
- Cargo Sprinter loco hides intermediate cabs if you add them consecutively to a train.
- there's a parameter for capacity (bigger / correct / smaller).

There's nothing else much fancy.

Humbly suggest you put the starting year for your earliest train(s) in the GRF description so it's visible when browsing GRF's in BaNaNas.

Perhaps it's just bad OTTD-fu on my part, but I had to determine the starting date (1860 if I made no mistakes) by starting new games in different years and check if trains were available.

Agreed, start date in grf description would make sense.

It's in the online docs, but not sure if they're linked anywhere useful yet (unfinished - refers to ships in places as they're copied from FISH).

Checking out the latest release - 1.1.0, Very nice job, like it a lot. One comment though - looks like an issue previously reported about no locomotives being shown when selecting a filter for "none" cargo, but when "passengers" are chosen, all locomotives are shown, even though their capacity is reported as "N/A". Has this issue just not yet been addressed, any ETA on the fix?

I think I found a bug:

The first narrow gauge locomotive (Stewart) appears in 1860, but the first carriages and vans only appear in 1870. Maybe the Stewart needs to appear in 1870, or the carriages in 1860.
Sorry if this has already been reported.

Nice to see you developing this so quick! I also love the fact you added in the Class 14, the single best looking diesel locomotive ever! Wouldn't mind seeing a comple more Metro vehicles, but I've never really played a full game with this yer so IDK what it's like. Some HS-EMUs wouldn't be bad, like say a Class 91 or, 800/801. But such a nice set anyway

P.S., the TTD graphics don't really suit OpenTTD
Edit: IMO the old Walker graphics (that looked like the Class 17) were better than the new ones, but the donnegal doesn't look nice

1.3.0 is it? On bananas or http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/iron-horse/releases/

-------------
1.3.0 Release
-------------

*New Features / Changes*

- added a narrow gauge mail car, bored of refitting box cars to mail
- fast (2nd generation) open, flat and box cars were introduced too early, unbalanced the game

*Fixes*

- reefers weren't refitting refrigerated class (oops)
- dibble pax car loading speeds so later generations don't load slower than earlier
- gen 3 brit flat car loads out of place by one pixel

*Language Updates*

- de_DE (planetmaker)
- fr_FR (arikover)
- la_VA (Supercheese)

Great set, looks and feel like flexible modern extension of original TTD.
Just testing on my server.
One small bug - ECS tourist in box/open cars (I set this issue on dev.)

One more issue, not sure if related to Iron Horse, nutrack or openttd algorithm itself.
I was pretty sure, that fasce-to-face layout of narrow gauge and standard gauge station is safe,
until two different trains crashes themselves at the rail junction:
Image
How it is possible? Did one train enter another gauge or it is just silly algorithm
checking if both neighboured block are completely filled?
(proper algorithm should check if trains are overlapped, not just touched).

that really looks like the expected outcome to me. trains go halfway over the end of the line, so they can crash into vehicles that are already there. in the old days, you could crash AI trains this way.

also, the game has no way of checking whether there exists a dual-gauge train that can move over this railtype gap, so it will consider both tracks as one signal block, thus you can only get into this situation if you force a train over a signal
