Stop Waiting chart is useless?
« on: February 05, 2010, 09:59:02 PM »
BTW, playing Experimental 7.0 running with 102.2 stable, so apologies if this has been addressed in a later version already.

As I see it, the Waiting chart for a stop is useless. Of course, I am playing Experimental, so passengers go away, unlike in Standard, but I would still allege that it's not very useful as it stands. The problem is that it shows the end-of-month number. This makes sense for the other charts. (Unhappy, for example, accrues over the month.) Waiting, though, should show the maximum number of passengers/mail/goods that were waiting in any given month. If there are 156 passengers at a stop on August 30th and 151 are picked up on August 31st (leaving 5), then the waiting chart shows 5 when I look at it in September. I fail to see how this is useful at all. Please let me know if I'm missing something?

Oh, and thanks for creating this marvelous sinkhole for my time and my life!  ;D
