Currently in the World Generation menu you have "Date: 1st Jan XXXX"; this is slightly misleading as it implies that you can set a specific start date, when it is in fact only the year you can change.

What I suggest though is allowing start dates to be either "1st January" or "1st July". This would be of benefit when using variable snowlines, i.e. you could start a game on 1st July when the snowline is at its highest and get farms on your map, whereas currently you won't get farms when starting a game with a low snowline in January.
This task depends upon

Additional comments about closing:  Thanks. Interesting suggestion. Not a current goal for OpenTTD though, so closing.
