No Woodcutters On Maps Without Forest
« on: May 09, 2020, 03:35:28 PM »
Hello folks,

turning off forests is a go to setting to get rid of unnecessary network load of network games.
Sadly, this also means that there will be no woodcutters on the map, as they seem to require forest.
The game does not recognize that, and spawn industries that require woodcutters.
That leads to games with long industry chains to be unused as there are woodcutters missing in it.

Is there a way to circumvent this without changing the woodcutters to not require forest in maps with forest?

Which pakset? When searching for places for such industries, one could check if trees are available at all. This can be done.

Pak192.Comic, nightly from here: https://github.com/Flemmbrav/Pak192.Comic/releases/download/Nightly/pak192.comic-serverset-nightly.zip
Used in r9018, if that helps.

In theory, all industry will ignore placement rules, should no suitable place be available. But this was not enforced for river and forest ... Fixed in r9081
