OpenTTD 1.5.1 has been recently released, bringing a new set of fixes.
OpenTTD (Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe) is a Transport Tycoon clone, working on Linux and Unix systems. Being an old game, it does not have good graphics, but it has a convincing gameplay.
The latest version available is OpenTTD 1.5.1, which brings the below fixes:
- Fix: Do not consider road junctions with trivial dead ends as branch points during town growth.
- Fix: Combined button+dropdown widgets in order and autoreplace GUI had incorrect hitbox when using GUI zoom.
- Fix: When building a lock on DC_AUTO-removable water-based objects, the water class was always set to canal.
- Fix: When crossing tram tracks with railroads, cost of extra roads was not being counted.
- Fix: Invalid infrastructure counting when crossing tram tracks with railroads.
- Fix: Broken error message in configure.
- Fix: In some cases town growth failure was considered as success.
- Fix: Town labels on smallmap and zoomed-out viewports were not centered.
- Fix: Removing a rail waypoint used the remove-rail-station cost.
- Fix: Duplicate frees due to pool item classes not having copy constructors.
- Fix: Crash when no AIs were installed due to improper handling of non-ASCII characters by the string pointer lexer.
- Fix: Compilation on DragonflyBSD.
- Fix: Use the current maximum speed as limited by bridges, orders etc. for all vehicle types alike when considering increased smoke emissions of vehicles.
- Fix: Multi-value keys in the desktop entry shall end with a trailing separator.
- Fix: Draw path reservation on the whole bridge, not only on the bridge heads.
- Fix: Draw correct overlay sprites for path reservations on bridges and tunnels.
