Feature availability (since 0.5.0)

<1.0

1.0-1.2

Nightly

Vehicles will load cargo over a period of time, not full load instantly. If the option to show loading indicators is switched on, this will be reflected correctly.

Possible Settings: On or Off
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([order] gradual_loading = <true|false>)

Deliver cargo to a station only when there is a demand

Feature availability (since 0.2.0)

Cargo will only be generated at a station when a vehicle with the capacity to pick that cargo up has visited the station. Affects station ratings.

Possible Settings: On or Off
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([order] selectgoods = <true|false>)

Allow building adjacent stations

Feature availability (since 0.6.0)

<1.0

1.0-1.2

1.3

1.4

Nightly

Holding the Ctrl key while building a station directly adjacent to another one will create new station instead of merging the new tile(s) with the existing station.

Possible Settings: On or Off
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([station] adjacent_stations = <true|false>)

Allow to join stations not directly adjacent

Feature availability (since 0.7.0)

<1.0

1.0-1.2

1.3

1.4

Nightly

Holding the Ctrl key while building a station pops up a dialog asking to merge the station with an existing station within the catchment area or creating a new station.

Possible Settings: On or Off
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([station] distant_join_stations = <true|false>)

Max station spread

Feature availability (since 0.3.2)

<1.0

1.0-1.2

1.3

1.4

Nightly

How spread out a station can be from one end to the other. If you draw a square round a station, this is the maximum size of any side of the square in tiles.

Possible Settings: 4 to 64 (Warning: High setting slows game)
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([station] station_spread = <num_val>)

Allow town controlled noise level for airports

Feature availability (since 0.7.0)

<1.0

1.0-1.2

1.3

1.4

Nightly

With this activated, the number of airports which can be placed in the vicinity of a town is not fixed anymore. Instead it depends upon the noise level of the airports, their distance to the town centre and the town's attitude.

Possible Settings: On or Off
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([economy] station_noise_level = <true|false>)

Allow more realistically sized catchment areas

Feature availability (since 0.3.5)

<1.0

1.0-1.2

1.3

1.4

Nightly

Changes the catchment areas to be more realistically sized. With this setting enabled, the catchment area of a station tile varies depending on what "type" of station tile it is. For example, train stations have a larger catchment area than bus stations and airports have even larger catchment areas. With airports, the size of the catchment area even varies with the type of airport, with the Intercontinental Airport having the largest area.

Possible Settings: On or Off
In Openttd.cfg config file: ([station] modified_catchment = <true|false>)
