Hi out there!
After having played TTD with Michael Blunk's DB XL Set (using the latest TTD Patch and the TTDX Configurator) for a while, I suddenly had to watch my trains change their colours on their own. The blue-white and red-white passenger cars of the 1990s changed their colours to the 1980s scheme by 1.1.2071. I first thought, that this happened due to a bug of the graphics set. But It also happend to the American train set.
Umm, I changed the year 2070 option with the patch, but the trains still keep on to change their colours. :cry:
Does anyone have an idea how to stop this? Is it possible to built different coloured trains, though the game is not in the scheme's decade?

This could be either a bug in the respective graphics sets, or a side-effect of the "eternalgame" switch. Hard to say...

The point is, that this never happened before in the US-set savegame. I am using different folders for European and US-Games, so also different versions on ttd-patch.
For the DB-set I have been using the latest patch, for the US-set an older one until a few days before. After having updated the US-patch, the trains changed colours with the next 1.1.
Is there maybe some sign-cheat or something like that to use different coulored trains? So I could build 1990s cars, though the date of the savegame is already 2070...

You haven't by any chance used the "Cht: Year" sign cheat? That will mess up year-dependent train liveries, due to an internal limitation of the cheat.

And no, there's no cheat to force trains to have certain liveries.

No I haven't. I didn't even know about this patch.
I have been playing this certain US savegame for a couple of years by now, using the American Transition Set for about half a year ago, when the date of the savegame was already past 2070.
But the liveries of cars changed first time now after having updated the patch.
I started the DB set game 3 months before, using always the latest patch version, and the liveries changed by 1.1.2071. So I don't know, if it's the set, or the patch, neither how to stop it.

If this bug is a patch-bug, which version of the patch would be fine, i.e. without changing liveries?

If you find out the exact version that breaks it, by experimenting, and tell me, maybe I can fix it.

Ok, I have checked a lot of possibilities by now. First to mention, all the patch versions running with the DB XL set show this year 2071 bug.
But when you use the year-cheat to jump back to 1995, rebuild the trains to the 90s livery, they won't change them, when time hits 2071 the next time.
I tried to check this bug with the American transition set, but I don't have a savegame before 2071 to do this properly (i.e. w/o using the year-cheat).
A great thing would be to make a future version of the DB XL set to have all the liveries free to choose, when they have come available. Maybe by striking a special key, when building. That would make the game more colourful, and easier - as you can have different coloured trains for different lines or routes...
