This patch unifies the appearance and the position of the location buttons in Town view, Industry view, Depot view, Station view, Waypoint view by adding a button to the right side of the top-of-the-window-bar. Because the other buttons were removed, the "Location" button string (STR_BUTTON_LOCATION) was removed from all language files, as the wiki details.

New goto location buttons were added in: Error messages (where suitable (those with a position attribute)), LandArea/Tile info window, City Authority/Council window.

The forum post related to this item ( ) also suggested a location button in the city rename window, but I thought that would be overkill (especially as the window is not one that would stay open for long). If needed, I can still add that, though.

The patch also adds an icon to the baseset format.

If this had screenshots, it might be more likely to get looked at.
