This patch unifies the appearance and the position of the location buttons in Town view, Industry view, Depot view, Station view, Waypoint view by adding a button to the right side of the top-of-the-window-bar. Because the other buttons were removed, the "Location" button string (STR_BUTTON_LOCATION) was removed from all language files, as the wiki details.
New goto location buttons were added in: Error messages (where suitable (those with a position attribute)), LandArea/Tile info window, City Authority/Council window.
The forum post related to this item ( http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=64539&p=1116910 ) also suggested a location button in the city rename window, but I thought that would be overkill (especially as the window is not one that would stay open for long). If needed, I can still add that, though.
The patch also adds an icon to the baseset format.
Thanks for this. There's been no activity on this for some time, and as it stands, it doesn't look likely that it will go any further. Since OpenTTD moved to GitHub, we use pull requests rather than patches, as they are a much more productive workflow.
I'm planning to close this soon (in 7 days), as we try to keep the issue count low for OpenTTD, it helps us focus on things that are important and fun.
If you would like to continue with this patch, the best way would be to move the patch to your own GitHub fork, update it for the current OpenTTD master, and then create a pull request. For more information, please see our CONTRIBUTING.md.
We are also happy to discuss directly on the issue, or in #openttd irc, including help to get this into a pull request. Thanks for your contribution!
