[EDIT] Now on BaNaNaS too.
I wonder, what is wrong with trees?
And what is inside test file?
first of all, great work, the scenario looks really great and seems to be pretty cool.
Currently, I'm mostly struggeling with getting the DB Set XL (0.82) to work with it, I might load it, but always get the red indicator saying "disabled" after updating the NewGRF Settings.
Any Ideas about that?
Are you going to use the Infrastructrue Sharing patch?jake.grimshaw wrote:I am thinking of finally starting a game on this scenario. I came up with the idea of using ~10 "blank" companies to simulate the various transport operating companies of Switzerland, and using the cheat function to switch between them. This would allow different company colours, amongst other things. Can anyone think of any ways doing a scenario like this might go wrong ? Thought I'd ask now before problems arise and people say "well I could have told you that"
That patch would make your game more realistic, so you can have trains running between the networks.
I have been thinking of doing a game like that on my own, but I do not have a build with the IS patch.
If you can find a build (or make your own) with IS and CargoDist, it could be a fun game to play (and to see screenshots from )
