Same level station cannot be replaced any more

It used to be possible to replace stations with the same level stop, but no longer is. This makes modernising stations more bothersome, as you occasionally have to remove signals from platforms to remove and replace them, and now it gives the "must replace with higher level" message, as in standard.

I think it would be better to implement force-downgrading with Ctrl+click like in Standard. That is one of the few Standard features I miss.

Thank you both for this. I have implemented Rollmaterial's suggestion, as this was quite simple to alter in the code. Now:

(1) attempting to replace a station tile with an identical type will have no effect at all (previously, an error message was displayed);
(2) attempting to replace a station tile with a lower level of station tile will have no effect if CTRL is not pressed (previously, an error message was displayed); and
(3) attempting to replace a station tile with a lower level of station tile will succeed if CTRL is pressed (previously, an error message was displayed).

I have done away with the error message entirely because it is now misleading, it is probably unnecessary, it was annoying, and the behaviour was inconsistent between stops and ways.

When I builded a stop, I often got a warining message "Upgrade must have a higher level", but now it is gone.
This is a nice change, thanks! :)
