Vehicle not starting when loaded with passengers.
« on: March 31, 2015, 02:11:22 PM »
At the moment I'm making a vehicle for OpenPak128.

The problem seems to be that when the vehicle is loaded with passengers. It just won't move from the bus stop.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

A screenshot of in game vehicle info dialog would be helpful, as well as dat file. Wild guess: wehicle is underpowered and too heavy when fully loaded. 8)

Is there a red box with the message "*** can't find a route" above the bus ?
Is the road before the bus free so it can move ?
Have you set a minimum charge at this stop ? In such case, your bus might be waiting to be full, check in the bus'window if there is a yellow part on the loading bar.
I guess you have properly set a non-null power and a non-null speed for you bus, else it would not even have left depot.

Sounds weird but possible too, what is the total mass and the power of your bus ?

The bus does leave the depot and is working well until it picks up passengers at the bus stop.

When it's attempting to leave the bus stop with passengers loaded. That's when it stops.

The speed of this vehicle is 1km and power is 44700.

Sounds like the weight of the passengers is too much for it to move. Once stationary drag (based on weight, including the weight of what is being transported) exceeds power then the convoy will be stuck at some arbitrary minimum speed (displayed as 1 km/h).

To prevent this happening under some circumstances with realistic numbers you may need to add a gearing to the convoy.

Just in case someone else runs into the same problem, would you say what fixed it? :)

Sorry for the late reply.

I adjusted the speed to 10 and the power to 1.

That's what solved my problem.
