brake vans in wrong window tabs
« on: January 29, 2011, 10:55:08 AM »
the SR brake van accepts mail, but that puts it in the pax/mail tab, and makes it a bit less obvious.
the 4t brake van is in the locomotives tab, but I'm not entirely sure why that is.

should they not both be in the freight wagon tab with the rest of the brake vans?

This is equally an issue with Standard (so I'm moving this post there). I'm not sure that there's an easy way around the one that carries mail; the other one, I could never work out why it appeared in the wrong tab.

Just llok how the stuff is sorted in vehiclebauer:
no freight defined => engine
power defined but not electric or pax => engine

ergo: define a random freight but capacity 0

Hmm, it seems that is what I've already got in the dats, but they still appear as locomotives rather than wagons...

They weren't in the .dats in the Experimental version.
