Please implement prop 24. I need it for ECS Agricultural vector beta 4. If it is already implemented, I'll provide a test GRF, because it does not work for me.
Default name for nearby station (24)
If non-zero, this text ID specifies an additional name option for stations built near this industry, which will be used before any of the standard TTD names. The text should contain a 80, which will be the name of the nearby town.
If the newly built station cannot use the specified text (because that name has been used for another station in the same town) the default TTD naming system will be used, but without the names "80 Oilfield" or "80 Mines".
Setting this to zero disables "80 Oilfield" and "80 Mines" without adding any additional station name options.
This task depends upon

The work to implement it has already been started.
It's not just an easy one to code, if it has to be done properly.
Thanks for pointing it out :)
The loader and the property itself is coded, the string manipulations are not done, nor the detection of already named stations, nor the disabling.

Attached a patch with the missing code to support this property. I've tested it with station_names.grf (found

Small bugfix: take the town of the station as base instead of the town of the industry. (pointed out by Roujin)
