0.4.8-RC2 (2006-07-31)

  • Feature: Add Italian town names as we have an official Italian translation

  • Feature: Add Turkish town names as we have an official Turkish translation

  • Fix: Fix several glitches concerning foundations. Houses, property (rail/road/bridge/etc.) and cursor are now aligned properly
  • Fix: Prohibit altering a road tile while road works are in progress. This fixes some glitches like 'turning' the excavation by adding/removing road bits or removing the road piece
  • Fix: Only advertise the server to your external IP/network (eg not to and use proper broadcast addresses

  • Fix: Be more strict what it means for an aircraft to be in a hangar: It's not just being stopped on a hangar tile
  • Fix: If a road vehicle is on a road depot tile and stopped does not mean it's in the depot. Use the proper test for this

  • Fix: [NTP] Fix NTP over bridges: do not check the rail type when on a bridge

  • Fix: 'Erroneous train reversal on waypoints'. When processing the next train order, do not even consider reversing the train if the last order was to a waypoint

  • Fix: Game crashes when cloning/autoreplace reaches train-limit
  • Fix: [NTP] Properly check for railtypes on non-plain-rail-tiles
