bags and sacks of mail
« on: September 20, 2009, 04:53:31 PM »
In pak128.Britain the metric used for transporting mail is "bag" (see http://simutrans.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/simutrans/pak128.Britain/goods/goods-128.dat?revision=172&view=markup), while the base text metric is "sack". Now "sack" is used in pak128.Britain as well (for wool). If there is not a pressing need (a bag is a mailman's bag, not a big sack for train transport f ex) to have two separate metrics here, I would suggest reverting the metric for mail to "sack" in pak128.Britain again, so that existing translations of this metric from base texts can be reused.

Good observation - A "bag" and "sack" are fairly interchangeable, so they both mean the same in game, but it should all be the same...
