There is a sprite from the small airport appeared in an intercontinental airport. Using TTRS3 and Combined Airport Set in r18743. I placed the GRFs in different sequences and tried removing one of them but with no avail.

This even happens when using original graphics and without newGRFs too.

It's been this way for many many years, i.e. since that airport was included.

It'd be easy to change to another existing tile, so if you can propose an existing airport tile (or other graphics that are not in a newgrf) we could change it. Personally I don't think any chance it's needed, you're the first to complain since the airport has been included.

How about changing it with a bare tile (with runway fence)?

And it will look similar to SE runways bare tiles. ;-)

I would like to second this request...

Sprites #2267-8 (trg1r) are an incomplete section of building with poor transparency and also missing part of the water tower feet. IMO this doesn't look good or fit well with the rest of the airport, and would be better replaced with another tile (e.g. a plain grass tile, which would give the airport a bit of symmetry). Reuse of these sprites also means that an action 0 replacement of the small airport needs to factor in the intercontinental airport, an inconvenience which would be btter avoided.

I'm not sure how this could be resolved by a newgrf (action 0 airport tiles?) but that's not necessarily an ideal solution.

As an aside, is there any reason why the intercontinental airport has fences at the end of the runways (unlike all the other airports)?
