The check on compatibility of a set newgrf's, now is executed when starting a new game. It would be nice, this check could be performed when you choose your own set of newgrf's before saving the set. Maybe by a new button "Check"
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Flyspray clean up: more than 5 years old, and not obvious what should be done with this next, so closing. If this offends, discuss with andythenorth in irc. Thanks.

Impossible, as newgrf may be incompatible with game settings (usually climate)

I do not agree with statement. Then it even is possible. The final report can list for which climate the complete set will function or not. I assume now the test also is made against the game settings.

It's not impossible, just a lot of work due to the current implementation. Having said that: it's a wish of multiple developers to implement this, so eventually it'll get done. Just don't count on it anytime soon.
