I had a Co Owner statue in a town, which I blew up to make way for something else, using the bulldozer cheat. Now that there isn't a statue in the town anymore, I can't rebuild it in the local authority menu, as the option doesn't return.

Well, you did use a cheat...

Yeah, yeah, I know, but when the statue got destroyed, it still should have changed whatever bit the town uses to tell if there is a statue or not...

But... just to make you happy, I made a test scenario, which I then flooded the town, cleared out all the water back to land again, so this time the statue was destroyed without using one single cheat throughout the whole process, and while I was able to coax the town to build back up again and expand (since I still had some buildings left), I wasn't able to replace the statue. :P

So take that! :D

It would be possible to remove the flag of built statue from the town, but i wonder what should be the side effects to that, regarding player ratings.

As for the floading, well, it reset the tile. I don't see the point in removing the flag. Act of God, the statue has been destroyed, along with the part of floaded town...

All in all, i don't think anything should be done about that.

in RL, if something has been destroyed, you rebuild it...

as far as side effect to player ratings... if the statue gets destroyed, you shouldn't get whatever effect the statue offered anymore, since it was destroyed... rebuild the statue, and get the effect back...

In LR, building a statue does not boost your station rating.
In OTTD, removing the flag would mean lower your station rating. And no way are you going to retrive the money spent on build the statue at first. Then, the industry should be made aware of the change.

So, the question would be : why should this be done?

no reason why you should get the money spent on it initially, back...

and... LR?

and if the effect of the statue affected the station rating (and I don't know exactly what effect the statue has to begin with, I just like having one in my cities), the losing the statue, SHOULD adversely affect what originally building the statue affected in the first place. I don't see a problem with that.

As for why it should be done? Well... attention to detail I guess... I lose the statue but the city still thinks I have one... there's a basic wrongness there... which should be addressed...

in any event, if nobody else wants to handle it, I'll look at it myself when I finish the current task...

But think it this way - the city remembers that you built the statue, so you have the better rating. Maybe they don't know who destroyed the statue, maybe they want something else there. That's why you don't lose your rating.
