Colors for lines serving a stop
« on: September 04, 2008, 01:36:58 AM »
When opening the details window of a stop, there is information about the "lines serving that stop".  Would it be possible to indicate there the owner of each line, for instance with the color of the player?

That's a good idea, i support it, it would help a little in Collabrative Games.

1) It would also be useful if the vehicle type (e.g. train) would be shown there. Of course, it's possible to use line naming to put any necessary information there.

2) Even more useful: clicking on the line could open the lines overview and jump to the line in that dialog, so that you can see the schedule, vehicles etc..

3) A sorted list of the lines in station details would be helpful (to compare two stations side-by-side).

The lines should be sorted by their line id anyway. Line owner would be only useful for public stops. Otherwise owner and line owner are identical.

Well, it doesn't look like they are sorted, but it's possible that this is because my savegames have been developed with many different ST versions.

EDIT: maybe the reason is that many of the line numbers have been reused, that is, the line was deleted, and the number taken for the next line definition.
