This solves a user-experience issue where purchasing a vehicle ends up with the 'wrong' cargo type.

This turned out to be quite nasty to implement as testing a refit cost requires a vehicle to be present. This is achieved similarly to how autoreplace works, by buying the vehicle and then selling it again, if in test mode.

Well played, "works" with clang, but nothing else. Oops!

Is it possible to run a test-execute when selecting a vehicle, so stuff like _returned_refit_capacity can be shown?

Good idea, that should allow the true cost to be shown as well.

This might also fix one of the things Samu has been complaining about repeatedly, that NoAI can't query the cost or capacity of a refit without purchasing? Although that would require a new API to purchase a vehicle already refitted too.

Hmm, one issue is that the query requires a depot to operate from, so will only work on a purchase list window from a depot.

Using AITestMode() it's possible to query the cost I think, so it should be possible to add a new parameter to ScriptVehicle::BuildVehicle(). But for the capacity a new function similar to ScriptVehicle::GetRefitCapacity() will be needed.

Did you check if autoreplace and clone work? BuildReplacementVehicle and CmdCloneVehicle both call CmdBuildVehicle and make separate refits later. As they pass 0 for the cargo type, the vehicles would be refitted to passengers first unless I misread the code somewhere.

AIs should be able to use this feature with PeterN#1

@michicc Good catch. I've looked to see whether we can just use the buy & refit functionality for these but they try to preserve cargo subtype, so it's not really feasible. I have updated the calls so they don't do a refit.

New functionality, when filtering from a depot view, the extra cost and the refitted cargo capacity are now shown.
