No idea if this is the best place to put this post but here goes anyway. I'm turning attentions to rebalancing pak128.Britain and I had the following questions - I seem to remember some discussion about them in the past but no idea if they ever got incorporated, refused or just never touched.
1. weight limits for ways/bridges - did this ever happen? If so how does it work?
2. monthly costs for vehicles - ditto
3. monthly costs and capacities set explicitly for stations (rather than based on level) - this is fairly essential to good balancing of small capacity stops early in the game.
4. Not directly relevant to balancing, but there was some discussion (I can't find it) about having left, middle and right images for ways (e.g. to give better appearance for double and quadruple track railways by gravelling over the whole tile in the middle) as has been done for tunnel images (i.e. depending on whether there was another track to the left/right). Did this ever happen? I also recall discussion about a similar idea for bridges but I think this was swept away as being too hard.
