Steps to reproduce

1. Open the Line Manager and find that uses 'Mirror schedule' feature:

2. Switch to Convoys tab and observe that none of them have the 'Reverse' icon showing, even though in this case almost all of them are taking the reverse route:

3. Open the Goods Window and open the Show fare calculation settings area.
4. There is no icon next to the "Comfort" legend:

I am not certain because it is a new feature, but Ranran's description of PR#555 suggests that there should be a comfort icon (a green smiley face) on this line.


Possibly relevant information?
1. The theme .paks in my installation's /simutrans/themes folder have not been updated by the Nightly Updater since last year. However, the symbols.png files in the source code's /themes.src/ directory were updated last week. So I suspect that something may be going wrong between these two points.

It could be that the Nightly Updater is not distributing the theme .paks correctly, but AFAIK nothing has changed in the Nightly Updater for many years.

Perhaps Bridgewater-Brunel's makeobj-extended is not correctly building the theme .paks???

2. I sometimes get the following message in simu.log:

Warning: simwin.cc themes_init():    Can't read themes from themes.tab
I use a custom theme so this message could be due to an error in my custom theme, totally unrelated to this bug.However, I searched through old logs, and this message first appeared on 2022-02-23. But that could just mean I changed something in the logging settings then.

I will try to figure out why this message only appears sometimes, but I thought I would mention it in case it is relevant.

I'm afraid but I can't reproduce this. I downloaded the file of themes.src and tried creating a pak file by myself, but this was also no problem.
Therefore, I think the distributed themes are still old.

A sane modern theme is attached so you can try it out.

James - Can you check if the distribution theme is updated correctly?

I agree.

Using your .pak, I am able to see the icons:



Thank you. Your suggestion gave me a new idea (which I should have thought of). I tried using a .pak file from Bridgewater-Brunel. It worked correctly.

This further confirms that it is a distribution problem.
