I'll have a proper read over the weekend and contribute my thoughts
Quote from: PJMack on January 10, 2022, 03:31:32 AMOne thing that has not been brought up in this discussion yet is passenger generation rates. If more passengers are taking the transit system per hour per capita than in reality, then the revenue would be proportionally greater even with realistic fares. I have, in game, ran into several occasions where it was physically impossible to keep up with demand for passenger transport due to the loading times and technology of the era, particularly before subway and trolley systems (the tube and electric trams). It also appears to me that the ratio of visitors to commuters seams quite off, however this could be due to comparing it to transit habits on the wrong side of the pond.

Quote from: jamespetts on January 11, 2022, 09:45:43 PMNote that, in very early eras, no passenger transport would in reality have been affordable by anyone with a class lower than "medium". If you are trying to transport "very low" in the stagecoach era, this may well be why you are attracting more passengers than your network can handle. If transport of "very low" passengers in the stagecoach era makes a profit in Simutrans whereas it would not have done in reality, this is a problem with cost balancing, not with passenger generation rates.
