Hello, everyone.

One of Japanese players reported me that road trains shrink when more than one road trains are shipped from a depot. The first one has no problem, but the second and later are shrunk like the image below.



This happens because the state of the convoy is set DRIVING before it leaves the depot completely. The attached patch can fix this bug.

I noticed the same behavior with trains, if they have to wait at signal at danger soon after leaving the depot.

This bug effects Simutrans Extended as well. At least for trains as described by Vladki.

I think a bug like this was fixed a couple of years ago. It is strange that there is another one just like it.

The bug fixing patch is so simple that you can apply the fix to Extended by hand.
