I'm sorry but what's "month wait time" for?
« on: August 20, 2008, 01:15:25 PM »
I've noticed that there appeared a Parameter called "month wait time" in the Schedule.
I've tried to set different Values but there was no Effect at all...
Does it have to work or it's ment to get to work in future?
Regards, Sergey...

I didn't try this out, but as far as I know the "month wait time" works only in combination with a positive (e.g. > 0) load percentage. If you set the load percentage on 100% and the month wait time on 3, then the vehicle will either leave when it's full or when it has been waiting for 3 month (without being 100% full).

I have been looking at using this also as a tool to make bus services regular - could someone explain what the fractions actually mean (i.e. 1/512, 1/1). It is probably obvious but I can't work it out

Well 1/1 should be a full month, and 1/512... well 1/512 of a month.

Like I said - quite obvious! Thanks for that, will alleviate 20 buses queing at one end of a route and 200 passengers waiting at the other end!

Suggestions to improve the in-game help texts are always appreciated ... Just post them here or -- even better -- in documentation.
