Odd city growth seen at one town
« on: July 29, 2017, 09:36:40 PM »
Here is a screenshot of the situation; http://files.simutrans.com/index.php/s/N1vL6pIoDrXgwsn
Here is a saved game: http://files.simutrans.com/index.php/s/1LqSvvyc0z4KPbw

I see an odd very fast city growth at one town in my game, all other towns seem to be fine. Map was started in January 1940, with Kesesmouth being a little village with 1056 inhabitants. Village started to grow pretty soon although it had no service until 1944 when it had 1904 inhabitants, almost double the starting population. in 1945 I established passenger service, nothing serious, just a bus stop on a regional bus line, village reached 2283 inhabitants then, thus more than double the starting number.

In January 1946 I started to supply the hardware shop in Kesesmouth, and the village grew ever fast. In July 1946 (this within 6 months) it has grown from 2283 inhabitants to 4984, almost 5 times the starting size.

I find that odd. :)

Thank you for the report. Looking at this, I am not able to reproduce it (although I can see the history of the previous growth). I suspect that this has been solved by the fixes to industry production (which is linked to town growth in towns with industries).

Would you be able to re-test with the next nightly? I should be most grateful.
