Title: Speed bonus calculation
Post by: Milko on October 15, 2011, 01:46:17 PM
Hello

Exp10.2 - Pak64Exp
I think there is an error in the calculation of the speed bonus in the window list of the goods.
Using speedbonus =- 40 I get the same prices for all the good that I get with speedbonus = +40, the maximum speed I get with the bonus income = 0.

It maybe that also fee are affected?

May I ask - to what did you set the "distance"? The effect of the speed bonus varies with distance, such that, at the minimum distance, it has very little effect.

Hello

Distance = 15, with longer distances, the problem does not occur.

This issue does not occur with Pak128.Britain-Ex 0.8.2; I think that the cause of it in Pak64.Experimental is that the speed bonus values are much lower, reducing considerably the effect of the speed bonus.

That's odd -- I thought that the speedbonus values in pak64.experimental were the same as those in pak128.Britain-Ex. Is this not the case?

Hmm, I remember reading somewhere that they had been changed in a recent release. Certainly, the issue does not occur with Pak128.Britain-Ex.

Hello

I have no certainty (I did a few tests so far), but with the pak64exp I struggle to make profits by using high-speed trains to transport passengers.

I shall move this to the Pak64.Experimental forum, as this seems to be an issue specific to this pakset.
