QuoteThank you for your report - I infer that this is caused by not checking whether a vehicle marked as "available_only_as_upgrade=1" is present in a convoy to be copied: the proper behaviour would be to prohibit the copying of a convoy where any vehicle has this attribute.You will need to change the Japenese translation text of "Can't buy obsolete vehicles!" to something that applies also to vehicles available only as an upgrade.
QuoteAre there any non-trivial cases where it is possible and realistically likely to be desirable for players to wish to purchase a vehicle and immediately upgrade it? In such a case, one would anticipate that the better behaviour would be to allow purchasing the upgraded vehicle anew in the pakset.
Quote from: jamespetts on April 08, 2019, 09:12:43 PMIt is an interesting question of what the cost of a vehicle that can never be bought new should be.
QuoteCan anyone think of a sensible way of deciding this?
QuoteHere is my idea for consistency without making major changes:- Change the code to take over the manufacturing date when upgrading. That is, upgrading never changes the year the vehicle was born.- Describe the asset value when the vehicle is new in the dat file. For example, the value to be described there is the manufacturing cost + upgrade cost.

Quoteso changes of this sort need to be fully compatible with the plans for this branch.
Quoteare you familiar with the work relating to that featureset? If not, I can point you to the threads discussing it.
