Electricity: City Hall demand vs Substation demand
« on: January 22, 2019, 04:40:46 PM »
I can't understand this.

the power demand in the substation has a different value from the one of the city hall. why?
For example, in my current game, the city of Victoria, according to the town hall, has a power demand of 244 KW, but in the substation connected to the city there is a demand of 2.01 KW. Is there a conversion? Doesn't make sense since both use the same power unit...

Note: I have two cities connect to the grid, according to the substations there is a total demand of 2.44 KW (according to town halls it is 296 KW) and my revenue was on the second month just 18.28$ (first month had 0 idk why)

Thank you for the report. Are you able to upload a saved game in which this issue can be reproduced?

Here it is:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/x9bfi7hxb0lxiqa/trackpak.rar?dl=0 (pak I use in this save)

The towns are: Victoria and Duckenton End
The power station is East of them (right side of screen) near the sea. Its called 'NPGC Coal-fired power station - Victoria'
All the electrical grid is owned by UCC (player)

Thanks :)

Apologies for not having had chance to look into this lately: I have been very busy at home with a domestic project in the last few months.

I note that you have uploaded a few assorted .pak files; may I ask with which pakset that these go?
