simutrans nightly 20190830 in 1850 no more mail cars for train?
« on: October 28, 2019, 11:14:55 AM »
Hello,

I am playing this version still. I have generated a 2km by 1km map with over a 1500 cities, took well over an hour or so. I am currently in 1850 and wanted to expand my 2nd intercity line with extra carriages. But I noticed that by April 1850 there were no more mail carriages available in the depot, snif.

Any indication in which year new mail carriages get introduced so I can expand the number of trains on my extended intercity line. And can put trains on the new intercity line I am building.

Now that we are on the subject of mail anyway, by what year does the number of parcels start to increase? 1850 is the year of the stamp so I expect from here on out more mail.

The map takes about 15gb of RAM. I have 32gb though. When I tried a bigger map it failed on initialization :(

Mail only starts to flow when you have an extensive network.

Ermmm I have about 50 stations ...... should be enough to have more mail than the odd mail I have now.
I have 2 Intercity lines
10 Sprinter lines
10 Branch lines

3rd intercity line which is build will be serviced once mail carriages are available again is 250 km+

You have to wait till September 1850 for the 4wheel-1850s carriage set, which includes mail carriages.
I think it should be considered a bug that the gjr-mail and LMR-4Wheel-TPO retire in April 1850, and there is no other mail carriage until September 1850.

That depends on when James sees, agrees with and merges it. If not tonight (for tomorrow), then most probably tomorrow.

If that takes too long, for sure you can always search for that branch in the pull requests, check it out and compile it on your own.
Just for completeness.

I had incorporated the fix for this a few days ago; my apologies for not updating the thread until now. Thanks to Spenk009 for working on this.
