James,
Installed EXP11.1. Running OK sofar.
One remark: What version you have is only visible after starting the .exe.
Why not using a name like Simutrans-EXP-11-1.exe.
Even more important with Makeobj.exe, where even when running you can't see the version. Also here
MakeobjEXP13-1.exe (13 is yearnumber)


BTW: Do you realize the date of EXP11.1 is 7-5-2012 !!!

Mail in bundles of 1kg.
I think I can understand why you did this. It is more realistic than the huge amount of mail in the past, coming
from one letterbox.
There is however a problem with the transport-fee.
The indicated fee of 0,02 Cr/kg is OK for modern times.
In the past it should be a lot lower (inflation) Assuming that Makeobj can't handle figures <0,01 it will cause problems.
Would it be possible to generate mail in kg, where one letter is 0,01 kg.
You have this way a lot more possibilities to adapt the mail-fee in the past.

As to inflation, the plan is actually at some point in the future to introduce a mechanism that expressly simulates inflation.

OK James, but what about my question about mailgeneration in parts of kg (0,01 kg = `weight of a letter)

The issue of the appropriate size for a bundle was discussed in some detail here.

Sorry James for my stupid idea. It's kinda late now, but I realize that my proposal will worsen the problem.
Tomorrow, when my mind is clear again, I will read your link.
