Detailed Description

Class that handles all game settings related functions.

Note
GSGameSettings::IsValid and GSGameSettings::GetValue are functions that rely on the settings as OpenTTD stores them in savegame and openttd.cfg. No guarantees can be given on the long term validity, consistency and stability of the names, values and value ranges. Using these settings can be dangerous and could cause issues in future versions. To make sure that a setting still exists in the current version you have to run GSGameSettings::IsValid before accessing it.
The names of the setting for GSGameSettings::IsValid and GSGameSettings::GetValue are the same ones as those that are shown by the list_settings command in the in-game console. Settings that are string based are NOT supported and GameSettings::IsValid will return false for them. These settings will not be supported either because they have no relevance for the script (default client names, server IPs, etc.).
