Change: Default settings improved for new players #8463
Motivation / Problem
In #8393, nine community members discussed the best default settings for new players who have not yet waded into the settings menu we have all tweaked to our liking. We agreed on changing six settings which are currently unfriendly to new players.
Each of these received a unanimous agreement of at least 6 votes, and most received 8-10.
Additionally, one issue received 10 upvotes and one downvote.
Two settings received four upvotes and no downvotes, but I don't feel like this is enough to justify changing the default settings.
There was also discussion about breakdowns and train/road vehicle collisions at level crossings, but the consensus seemed to be that these issues should be fixed separately rather than ignored by changing default settings.
