Simutrans Extended Development / Obstructive public player chapter 7
« Last post by Freahk on Today at 02:59:52 PM »
Last chapter, we talked about the public player and waterways. Today, we want to talk about railways



I guess the image is self-explanatory.
Anyways, could we please enforce bridges over railway tracks in general, or at least in case tracks maximum speed is greater than level crossings speed?

What exactly do you mean?
You think it's too difficult to click on a line in that list?
Well that might be true for some users. I see a potential accessibility issue for tablet users or people with bad eyes.
Allowing larger fonts should fix both to some degree, but especially in the latter case, that issue is just the same as without a tree organisation.

Anyways, an expand-all and collapse-all button might be a good option. Taking via (details) as an example, something like
70 via A
  - 42 to A
  - 13 to Long name
  - 7 to B
...

Is still much clearer then the current two seperate lists:
Via (amount)
70 via A
...

Via (details)
42 > A
13 > long name via A
7 > B via A
...

My most common workflow here is to search for huge via masses in the Via (details) list, remembering these, then swtitching to Via (details), searching the long list for details.

Also note the use of space:
Whilst the tree view indeed adds another line to the details list for each "via", it saves a lot of width in each line.
Merging the transfer information into the waiting information might further make things clearer. Instead of checking four lists for data that is abolutely related, you have to check only one, where the related data already is grouped together.
As a nice sideffect, this will lead to less width and less lines than the current approach. The saved space can be spent into larger fonts for accessibility.

You could just allow everyone to upvote every image.
Approval votings aren't that bad, don't fear them!

You say that just after a troll wave hit the server :-/ . Of course I fear.

we'll have to tally up votes from peoples' replies.

I really, really, don't understand what you (all of you I mean) have against voting on the wiki. A survey everyone can vote on. No account required. No manual vote counting. No need to waste time preparing 5 different surveys.

I can see the benefit of increasing the number of platforms where you can participate (more participants, more exposure), but I don't see the benefit of splitting the voting system if we can avoid it. Someone please explain to me.

Certainly accessibility is an important factor to consider.
It may be possible to place a separate button in the list that directly accesses to detail.

Sooooo, all we have to do is not use emoji voting, but require people to reply instead.

Alas, the same would be true on reddit anyway - we'll have to tally up votes from peoples' replies.

I can help with the vote tallying, I don't mind. :)

With "emoji vote" we can't define a maximum of votes per user, per category.

What do you mean by barely any control?

nonono, voting on Discord is a no-go. We barely have any control over the voting process!

I can only agree on it being used as another platform where users can submit their screenshots - and only if someone wants to volunteer registring such entries (I don't see much sense on using yet one more platform where nearly all of the users are already registered on the forum..). One could create a special channel for that, #screenshot-contest or whatever, to better keep track of entries.

I will start the contest this weekend. Probably tomorrow, if I have enough time. And it will last until December.
