Quote from: Vladki on April 13, 2014, 05:21:48 PMHmmm, I have seen that airplanes tend to takeoff and land in the same direction. Is that because winds in simutrans blow always from the same side? How about sail ships having different top speed based on direction?
Quote from: AP on April 13, 2014, 05:26:56 PMRegarding steam locomotives and range, personally I think it fair to assume every station has water provision. I think trying to co-ordinate coaling and water stops for everything would be a layer of micromanagement too far. On that logic we'd have to set up oil tankers and distribution and petrol stations before being able to operate lorrries...
