Signal aspect problems
« on: August 18, 2018, 02:34:21 PM »
Hi James, I apologise to be a bother again. But, this time this is just a recent bug which has been discovered in-game. At Crewe, the choose signals clear trains (which don't call at Crewe) to the signal 2 blocks away (not shown on picture). The signal (which is meant to be 1 block away) at Crewe station (on the bypass line) has not cleared to a single yellow aspect (this is due to the signal off picture being at danger (red)). Could you look at this bug for me please?

I am afraid that I cannot reproduce this, since I cannot find any trains on the approach line that you show that do not stop at Crewe. May I ask - at exactly what in-game time can this be reproduced?

Erm look for Class 350 trains (in the old First Transpennine Express livery) and Class 221 voyagers which serve the Chartford Euston - Werningstone Central/Longchurch Waverley via Malborough West lines. They do not call at Crewe. Plus they go via the line where the Class 350 in the picture is.

At what in-game time does this occur next after loading the saved game that you provided?

I am afraid that I cannot see any trains not stopping at Crewe coming from the lines to the right of the picture at 3:00 in May 2015 (or thereabouts) in the saved game supplied.

That makes no sense at all - I ran the game until the exact time that you gave, and a little while beyond. Which specific convoy number has the issue that you describe at 3:00:49 in May 2015 in that specific saved game?

At the times given, convoy 24 is nowhere near Crewe it is instead at Longchurch.

It is important to note that fast forwarding or altering time granularity may result in diverging game states due to it changing the simulation granularity. For this reason it may be important to have several saves captured around the time the instance occurs so that James can load up and literally a few seconds of normal simulation time later the bug happens.

[Weird aspect displays at Crewe] Signal aspect problems
« Reply #12 on: September 13, 2018, 06:37:58 PM »
Hi James, at Crewe (on the same map where a previous bug was not solved), the choose signal (in the Northbound direction) displays weird signal aspects, so for example. The signal would sometimes the choose signal would show a clear aspect (with/without the feather indicator on) to trains which are calling at Crewe and sometimes it would show a single yellow (as the case with the last bug (not solved)) to trains which are passing Crewe (the Glasgow Central fast services (named Train: Chartford E - Glasgow C 1 ingame)) and the signal at Crewe station (on the passing lines) is at danger and the signal protecting Polingpike Junction (south of Polingpike East station) which is at danger should be the only signal at danger (shown in the picture below) in this case, also the circles were added to show you what I mean by "the signal at Crewe station (on the passing lines) is at danger and the signal protecting Polingpike Junction (south of Polingpike East station) which is at danger should be the only signal at danger." Could you look at this bug for me please?

There is somewhat of a queue of issues at present - this is noted, I will hopefully deal with it in due course.

I think the reason why this big occurs is because the block reservation does not route it to the tile where the signal is on. It routes the train to the tile before (the tile which does not have the signal on).
