Version of OpenTTD

1.9.1

Expected result

When airplane crashes, disaster happens, or car is destroyed at the railroad crossing, news should be (edit: always) issued to the player.

Actual result

No news show up (in settings set to show full news).
(edit: News might be ommited espetially later in the game, where there is a lot of other news and advisors. It might leed to unknowingly loosing vehicles)

Steps to reproduce

Build airport with short runway, let airplane repeatedly land there, wait. When airplane eventually crashes, no report is shown.
Same with vehicles rammed by trains, or disasters destroying infrastructure.

Solution

Never ommit accident/crash/disaster related news.

News may occasionally be omitted if there are lots of ticker messages scrolling by

That seems like the issue. Changing the OP to "don't ommit those reports" since in later game, once you news feed is busy, you basically after a while end up surprised, that you have no aircraft/cars left, because you missed those messages.

Affects 20190723-master-g2e686ad5d5, also in that when the game is in fast forward, most (sometimes all) summary messages are not shown. This not only includes accidents/disasters but also company info, general info, and other messages marked to display as "Summary".

I confirm this. Even in multiplayer games, it happens that the opponents get the notification of some accident involving my vehicles far before that I get it, but it even happens that I don't get it at all.
And of course getting timely notifications about accidents is crucial to be able to replace the destroyed vehicle(s).
