Complete Rework of Freight rolling stock
Redrawing the entire freight rolling stock, complete with new styles, more types of wagons, and more variety.

I'm thinking if we should add a parameter-alike thing to filter the cargo wagons, much like we're planning with the engines and MUs.
I don't know if people would want a shorter depot list with only the basic wagons they need, rather than a huge list of all kinds of wagons which can transport the same stuff.

To be very honest, I'm really not up to date with all OpenTTD features. I haven't played in ages.
However, what I imagine is people who want a very long list with lots of choices with fun looking cargo wagons (lets just admit many of them will just be eye-candy), but another person my get confused by such a long list, lost on which wagon he needs, and might be better off with a simple TTD-alike vehicle list.

Old wagons, yes. But not wagons of a specific type which doesn't add any new cargos to transport.
I'm not familiar with ECS and stuff, but I remember that the DB Cargo Set had several wagons to transport Goods (Tankers, Flatbeds, Containers, Car-carriers, etc), while the original TTD only had one (Goods Van).
If we're gonna add as many cargo wagons as we did with engines and MUs, the list might get a tad too complicated for some players perhaps, who might get confused: "Which of these 100 wagons do I use to transport Goods?"
Just some thinking here

The GUI I suggested would work like this... BTW this is a crazy idea, I don't know if it is possible to make or anything else...
Imagine the "train tracks" window in-game with Nutracks and all different available tracks. Similar, when 2cc set is loaded, you would be able to open a GUI window with buttons for each vehicle "type" - clicking green/red would enable/disable that "type" (similar like the game's advanced menu GUI).
I really don't know if something like that is possible to make. That's what you guys are for... :-))
