Can you elaborate on Loading times?
« on: December 21, 2013, 06:40:53 PM »
"Different vehicles can therefore load and unload at different rates. How long that it actually takes a convoy to load/unload within that range depends on the number of passengers/amount of goods that are loaded at the stop in question."

- Overview of Simutrans-Experimental


How do we find this out? (Each vehicles loading time range.) Or do we have to sit in the game and physically test out a few convoys?

Not sure whether I understand you right - but you can see a vehicle's loading time range in the depot.

The loading time ranges are shown both for each vehicle in the convoy details window and also the depot/replace windows.

Got it: I didn't look at the "Berthing" info (i.e. the 'modules' you put on bigger ships.) I was looking at the ship itself.


Allows me to work out the timing schedules & convoy spacing better. (Keep getting "Waiting time unknown".)
