This ship is included in "Timothy's Ships II".

This ship is not configured correctly to carry any cargo; its capacity is listed as "128 Nothing".  It should be able to carry 128 crates of Cooled Goods.

Is it possible for someone to make a fix for this vehicle, as there are no other ships (other than fishing trawlers, which are too expensive to operate) that I can find which are capable of carrying Cooled Goods?

Any help would be much appreciated!

There is also a problem with the car ship, it can only load 4 cars !

Ashley

How many cars are drawn in the image of the ship? The whole point of these ships was to produce "realistic scale" shipping, e.g. they can only carry what they look like they ought to be able to carry.

Four cars are realistic for a ship of this size? Even a small ferry can carry more. The truck can carry 16 cars and it's a lot smaller.

Graphically the truck can carry 2 cars, with another 2 on the trailer. It'd be better to balance the car production chain so that each individual unit is worth more, and have the number of units transportable by the vehicle accurate to the way it looks.

And those ships are really very tiny, they are to the same scale as the cars drawn on the deck.

If you want to carry more, you need a bigger ship, e.g.:

+1 for comparison with the default ship. You can really support your points ;D

My projects... Tools for messing with Simutrans graphics. Graphic archive - templates and some other stuff for painters. Development logs for most recent information on what is going on. And of course pak128!
