|Halftile foundations||Done||Not done||(Also known as anti- zig, zag foundations.)|
|Multistop for road vehicles||Done||Not done|
|Custom Bridgeheads||WIP||Done||was worked on by peter1138 TT Forums topic|
|Enhanced bridge construction||Done||WIP|
|Build track above tunnel entrances||Not done||Done||All Track directions allowed. Automatic track construction for depots also supported.|
|Bigger maps||Done||Not done||Possible, but would require tremendous amounts of work in the Patch.|
|Extra Viewport||Done||Not done|
|Player faces extended||Done||WIP||TT Forums topic|
|Autorail tool||Done||Not done|
|Drag railway in any direction||Done||Done|
|Measurement tool||Done||Not done||TT Forums topic|
|Date-dependent track/road graphics (newroutes)||Done||WIP|
|New airports||Done||WIP||Being worked on as a new GRF feature by Csaboka.|
|Path Based Signaling||Done||Done|
|New pathfinder||Done||WIP||Being worked on by Eis_os|
|Routing restrictions at signals||WIP||Done||The MiniIN restricts based on maximum speed, with global settings (fast/medium/slow). TTDPatch restricts based on one or more of power, weight, length, next order, maximum speed, and nearby signal status; combined with any combination of or, and, and xor; with per-signal settings.|
|Programmable Signals||WIP||Done||Allows the User to restrict the passage of Trains based on the state of other signals, station platforms, etc. For example, if a Mainline signal is red, the branch line signal can be set to automatically go red and therefore allows Priority to be given to certain tracks. See TTDP Wiki|
|Yellow signal state||WIP||WIP|
|New signals||Not Done||Done|
|New objects (eyecandy)||Done||Done|
