Reverse route flag remain
« on: April 30, 2020, 10:22:10 PM »

Hello

I don't know if it's a bug or a wanted behavior; but a vehicle assigned to a line that is not in "alternating directions" maintains the "reverse route" flag.

For example: take a vehicle with the "reverse route" flag set, assign it to a line that is not in alternate directions and you will see that the flag remains.

The problem is that if I use "wait for time" at a stop the vehicles do not space correctly, if for example two vehicles with the different flag arrive together at a stop they will leave together.

Wouldn't it be better to reset the flag when a vehicle is assigned to a line that is not in "alternate directions"?

It's a "feature"
See this discussion: https://forum.simutrans.com/index.php/topic,19563.msg184620.html
Imho routes should have a checkbox to explicitly allow vehicles in that schedule to use the "reverse route" checkbox but that does not seem to be consensus.
