Incorrect value for "Cost to Clear" for Company Headquarters in tile inspector #6938
I notice that when I use the tile inspector on my company headquarters (if I have one), then the "Cost to Clear" value is incorrect. Specifically, it shows up as £92 quadrillion instead of (for a company value of £1 million) £10,000. If I were to a actually demolish/relocate the headquarters, it would deduct £10,000 (for a company value of £1 million) from my bank balance.
What should have happened was that the "Cost to Clear" shows up as 1% of my company value for my headquarters, or "N/A" for another company's headquarters. What actually happened was it still shows "N/A" for another company's headquarters (expected), but it always shows £92 quadrillion as the "Cost to Clear" for my headquarters, regardless of my company's value.
To reproduce this unexpected behaviour, do the following:
A possible cause of this bug is that the Land Area Information tool gives the "Cost to Clear" as if your company value is always £9 quintillion (64-bit signed max) instead of (for example) £1 million. If that's the case, possible solutions include:
I'm leaning towards the following: If the magic bulldozer cheat is enabled, use plan B. Otherwise, use plan A.
It seems the issue is here:
I guess the logic is to raise temporarily the company value to its maximum, so no operation can fail. Anyway 1% of INT64_MAX are the 92,233,720,368,546,758 here in question.
I'm not really seasoned in the openttd code, but why can't
Summary of IRC:
This bug only appears when magic bulldozer is enabled. Otherwise, the HQ is unmovable and doesn't have a removal cost associated with it
