Numbered waypoints
« on: August 19, 2010, 09:32:54 AM »
I would find it very helpful if the way points that constitute part of a schedule/line was numbered. The numbering should be local to the schedule/line and simply(?) show the order of the waypoint within the schedule/line, the first being waypoint 1 etc. This would help me locate where in schedules/lines that a problem has occurred for a blocked convoy without having to open up its schedule window - which sometimes will compound the problem (the train was about to be unblocked and leave, and opening its schedule freezes it in its tracks...)

You mean: including the number in the error message "train cannot find its way to waypoint number 43" ?

Well that would be helpful as well, but I was primarily thinking of the vehicle dialogue itself, where the Destination is frequently shown only as Waypoint.

I'm pretty sure that if you open up the map and enable "show schedules", the map will display all points, including waypoints, a line has. You have to highlight the line in the line management menu.

Indeed it does that, and in that view there is a number (f ex (5) waypoint), but when looking at the vehicle info dialogue for a particular vehicle, it states only Waypoint as Destination.
I want to be able to know without stopping a train by opening it schedule towards _which_ way point that particular train is heading... If the Destination was (5) Waypoint instead of just Waypoint, I would ask for nothing more... (well... that might not be totally true *smile*)

Perhaps the destionation display should also get a goto button in the vehicle dialoge?

aha, gotcha. That does indeed sound like something that would be helpful
