Title: Construction time for tunnels
Post by: omikron on February 05, 2012, 02:51:12 PM
Another thing: Would it be possible to make the construction of tunnels a long-term enterpirse? Building a tunnel (as well as a bridge) does take a long time and cannot usually be done within a day or even month as in simutrans. Implementing something like that would obviously make gameplay much more difficult, but maybe also more challening?

Topics split, as this was no longer about relative pricing information

This is not a bad idea in principle, and one that I have considered before, but if implemented, would have to be in respect of all infrastructure, not tunnels. This would be a major coding project, and is not currently a priority. Hopefully one day, however!

Good to hear. I might follow carlbakers lead and experiment a bit with C++ (once my kids are a bit better and I have more concentration....) to tery to be of any help. We'll see.
