Option to exclude buses/trams from minimap's "networks" mode
« on: January 30, 2013, 10:56:37 PM »
Hi, what a nice surprise to find an extremely cool addition to the minimap as the "networks" mode! (i haven't been playing simutrans for quite some time..)


I have a suggestion (or better, a wish, if somebody else likes it):
would it be possible to exclude certain types of transport from that mode? Even better, maybe some checkboxes next to the "networks" one, each one switching the visibility of a different transport type.
Excluding buses and trams, that I guess most people use mainly for urban transport, would help a lot in reducing clutter when viewing at 1:1 scale, and at larger scale you would also get a really nice tube map in cities where you built an undeground rail system.


Thanks

I support this version with filters. Also, I'd like to add another filter for the company. If you use more than one (for example, passengers on one company and freight on the other), it can be usefull to show only the lines of a certain company.

You can already filter pax, mail, and freight lines by clicking on those buttons in the map dialog. But I support having filters by waytype too. There might already be a way to filter ny company too...

While filtering is extremely easy to do programwise, the UI for this is not straight forward. Either it needs a seperate Line window, which would allow for all this stuff, or some additional boxes, which I really want to avoid.

Showing ownership is simple, pres CNTRL; also since there is now an ownership button, maybe these could be combined. (Ok, there is also a track button, which only shows tracks.)
