The new convoy GUI features are great!
« on: August 23, 2020, 07:53:40 PM »
I just want to say that new, RPG-style convoy GUI features (name display and payload display on the main map) are great!

They are not the most important patches to Simutrans-Extended (there are too many important bugfixes competing for that target).

But IMHO they are most definitely the most exciting patches to Sim-Ex in recent months!



They save a lot of clicking on convoys and they're a much easier way to instantly assess the health of different convoys.

And there's just something satisfying about seeing trains running under the name you've given them.  ;D

A big thank you to Ranran for the inspiration for and creation of these features and to James for the integration and maintenance!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Is this only available in Extended?

I noticed this entry in the Standard change log just now.  Is it the same thing?  If so how is the feature accessed/turned on?

"CHG: Option to show convoi name and line name as overlay"
