Road infrastructure counts are not updated properly, free money exploit with infrastructure maintenance #7625
Version of OpenTTD
Like rail infrastructure, road infrastructure counts should be updated properly when converting to different road types.
When you convert road types, the game does not properly change the numbers on the infrastructure piece counts for road, unlike rail. This can lead to:
Note that all infrastructure counts are fixed on savegame load, so any server where one or more companies fell victim to this exploit just has to 1. save game, 2. load game, 3. reset affected bank balances (optional).
Steps to reproduce
If you repeat steps 3 through 5 in reverse order, then you'll actually end up losing much more than the background loss rate of £300/yr (£25/mo) despite having nothing built, no vehicles, and no loan.
