QuoteUsually a choose signal is anyway at the entrance of a station, which is hopefulle not entred at 200 in any brached track.
Quote from: DrSuperGood on March 08, 2015, 11:54:03 PMDo not under-estimate how fast the fast trains accelerate due to the physics model used.
Quoteit will deccelerate to 200 km/h and try again. Then retry at 100. And then, if it still not work, directly at the signal, a new route is searched.
QuoteMoreover, if the desired plattform is available, a train can pass at 200 km/h. It will only slow down, when it has to do a full route search. (However, a dedicated high speed line should get its own plattform with "exclude from choice" signs before.)
Quote from: DrSuperGood on March 10, 2015, 12:15:43 AMYou cannot park trains in a single platform for cargo. You need a choose signal for any form of terminal or yard so that the trains can park off the track.
QuoteYes, but these are not high speed trains either. Since the trains are going to park, it doesn't matter that they slow down.
Quote from: DrSuperGood on March 10, 2015, 03:49:39 PMIt still looks a bit stupid that my 12 tile long pak64 RvG ICE trains running at 270 km/h are slowed down to 50 km/h to pass a choose signal (as the destination platform is seldom free) just to accelerate back up to >200 km/h (they accelerate very fast as expected for something with a 270 km/h top speed) before having to slow down at the end of the platform. I imagine it will look even more silly when this happens to a 448 km/h high speed train or a 700 km/h odd monorail.
QuoteIf I have more than one passenger train per line at a station at any given time, I have too many trains on that line.

Quote from: DrSuperGood on March 11, 2015, 12:29:56 AMWhat if the pathing query was moved from signal approach to entering block?
QuoteIt can't enter the block until it has found a clear path through it. Or if you are referring to the train entering the previous block, the situation might have changed by the time it reaches the signal. In busy stations with fast moving trains, it most definately will have. It can't reserve the block already either, because that will become a bottleneck fast. (Similar to the situation where I want a one-sided signal.)
Quote from: DrSuperGood on March 11, 2015, 03:24:16 PMI do not think it will bottleneck that much as it will allow the trains to keep at full speed instead of dropping to 0/50. You can always place a signal exactly 2 tiles behind it for the current behaviour as well.
QuoteMaybe not at 400 km/h, but at 100 km/h it most certainly does. The junctions between the last signal and the platform is a bottleneck as it is. Signal spacing shorter than the trains looks just as wrong as the quick reduction and increase in speed.
QuoteMoreover, if the intended plattform is full, then the train will likely also wait some time for passengers here.
