Quote from: jamespetts on August 01, 2020, 11:31:27 AMThis is a byproduct of the costs not being balanced yet - ultimately, we will need proper, data-based balancing of all stop types, but all the balancing enabling works and balance critical features will need to be completed first.
Quote from: DrSuperGood on May 21, 2022, 05:25:15 PMAirports likely need additional constraints rather than worrying about bus stops adding capacity. Specifically a functional airport, one which the parking bays are valid targets for aircraft to go to, could be made to require terminal buildings and other expensive airport structures. To support bigger aircraft, bigger and more expensive terminal buildings could be required. These buildings could automatically add sufficient passenger capacity to the airport, meaning there is little incentive to spam cheap bus stops to boost it further.
Quote from: jamespetts on May 21, 2022, 07:12:55 PMWe already do this with control towers - but for railways, this is more complex, since railway station costs show as a very high proportion of 19th century railway accounts, and it is more difficult to do this with railway stations, as unstaffed halts were very much a thing.

Quote from: jamespetts on August 02, 2020, 10:52:47 AMDoes anyone have any suggestions for how to set out an interim balancing for the stops for internal consistency?
Quote from: wlindley on July 02, 2022, 10:44:50 PMIn 1950 we have the Bulk goods bunker, Car yard, Fluid storage tanks, livestock pen, and Goods warehouse all with the same costs and capacities — except the Goods warehouse also stores as much Mail (i.e., it has twice the total capacity and thus may represent twice the value). So these represent merely eye-candy instead of giving us choices.One imagines a car yard should account for one automobile being perhaps 100 times as large as one crate of goods; and that a coal bunker would cost less than a warehouse building.At least there should be four different capacities each priced accordingly. Even better, perhaps there could be a way for station extensions to specify which kind of goods they handle, just as passengers and mail are handled separately.
