Train sprites misaligned
« on: July 28, 2013, 12:36:45 AM »

I don't think I've seen this reported: the sprites for train cars are often misaligned with either too much empty space between cars or cars being drawn on top of each others. Some screenshots: (all coming from the demo game that runs on start-up). Especially in the last screen, an entire cartruck disappeared.

Experimental 11.2, Pak128.Britain-Ex-0.9.0.

Thank you for the report. This is in fact a well-known and long standing problem, and one that is somewhat difficult to fix: it occurs when some vehicles are and some vehicles are not reversed in a convoy, such as when a steam locomotive with a tender (which reverses, as it must turn around on a turntable) is coupled with railway carriages which can be hauled in either direction (as almost all railway carriages can). There is some inconsistency in the alignment between reversed and non-reversed vehicles, but I have yet to get to the bottom of why this is or how to fix it.
