Fixes

Industry assets - bug fix

This updated script is to resolve the problem where you receive an error when attempting to modify the starting amount of a product in the industry details screen.

You will need to follow these instructions exactly in order to use this fix.

  • Download the new common.gs script from the link on the right (Right-click and 'save link as' or 'Save target as')
  • Copy the updated common.gs file into the scripts folder (replacing the current one)
  • Edit the trainzclassicoptions.txt file and add "-script" (without the quotes) onto the bottom of the file
  • Start TC3 (It will recompile the scripts so will take a few seconds longer than usual)
  • Check you can change the start amount of an industry
  • Close TC3 and edit the trainzclassicoptions.txt file to remove the "-script" line

We've been testing this and it should be very safe, but if you want to create yourself a 'fallback position' make a copy of your current trainzclassicoptions.txt, common.gs file and the entire 'libraries' folder that you can copy back in if something does go wrong.
