Station names show item ID instead of name
« on: October 03, 2014, 06:51:56 PM »
So the issue I'm having is that I'd like to have my station names say for example "Exampleville courthouse stop" instead of "Exampleville rmax_courthouse stop." I am using a different city list but isn't there a quick fix for this?

There might be. In your pak directory look for the text directory. You see a lot of tab files. Create a new empty text file starting with en_ and finishing with .tab , for example en_dekema2.tab. Open the file with notepad or another simple text editor.

Put in the first line:

rmax_courthouse

put in the second line

courthouse

Continue with other translations you want (odd is origin, even is translation).

(Re)Start Simutrans and see if this works. If not then find in en.tab the rmax_courthouse line and comment it and the next line out by inserting a # in front. (Might be handy to backup the file to en.tab.old before you mess it up...).

Hope this works...
