Quote from: Ranran on January 19, 2022, 05:43:34 PMwould be grateful if you guys could let me know what you guys think about this change in transportation unit.
Quote from: wlindley on January 19, 2022, 11:08:35 PMIf we could also graph:total passengers carried (like original measure, but just for passengers)total revenue from passengers onlytotal units of mail carriedtotal revenue from mail onlyrevenue per passenger-km (revenue / ( transported_count * km_distance )) -- we already have distance and total convoy km_distance; this is just a calculation on those figures.expenses per passenger-kmprofit per passenger-kmtotal freight kilograms transportedrevenue per freight kilogram-km (and likewise expenses per; and profit per)revenue per convoy-km (and likewise expenses per; and profit per)that would give further insight into how well our companies are doing. Those are the same figures that railroads, airlines, and trucking companies always compute in the Real World.
Quote from: jamespetts on January 21, 2022, 09:42:44 PMAs to free capacity, can you not use the same metrics for that: free passenger km, free mail km and free freight km?
Quote from: Ranran on January 21, 2022, 10:29:14 PMShould freecapacity also be split into three categories, i.e. add two records?We can record the distance the "empty seat" has been transported and compare it to the distance it has been carried to calculate the percentage used.
Quote from: zook2 on June 03, 2022, 08:09:39 AMIt's good to see that this is being worked on! May I ask how transportation density is measured?
Quote from: zook2 on June 03, 2022, 08:09:39 AMWhile we're at it, the old window displayed a little arrow next to the convoys which were going in "reverse" order. I found that very helpful. Can you bring that back?
Quote from: wlindley on June 03, 2022, 07:10:58 PMWould anyone find it useful to have another button to also display "global" (all companies) metrics? So you could compare "my" share against the overall trends? Or perhaps on the Finance graph screen:Check-box: All graphs as a percentage of the global share (e.g., My Revenue as a percentage of all companies' revenue; my passenger-km as a percentage of all companies — these effectively show you, your company's "market share")Finances for transport type: An extra option showing rail, road, water, etc., as a stacked bar chart with percentages of your company's total (or, with the above check-box enabled, as a percentage share of the global market)
Quote from: Ranran on June 03, 2022, 01:08:31 PMIf you're talking about this arrow, it's still visible. However, the location may have changed from before.

Quote from: zook2 on June 04, 2022, 08:08:10 AMSorry, I meant the convoy list in the Line Manager. There used to be a Reverse arrow, too. That's gone.

Quote from: zook2 on June 09, 2022, 08:39:17 PMI'd like to second that. For example, I'm busily running trucks to pick up large amounts of fresh fruit now. The old tons-per-month graph allowed me to easily compare orchard production/month to the monthly amount that my trucks moved. I know I can simply divide ton-kilometers by route length, but that frequently involves mentally handling numbers greater than ten and stresses me out to no end.

Quote from: wlindley on June 10, 2022, 10:02:38 AMAt the very least, all goods charts should be expressed in the same units, tons. For that matter, since the Goods List window expresses everything in Kg, why are we using tons at all; surely everything should be in Kg to dispense with Imperial units.

Quote from: Ranran on June 10, 2022, 10:32:06 AMDoes the world really use kg to represent cargo handling volume?
QuoteAfter having wrestled through so many generally little understood difficulties, one could then enjoy to have seen the first section of the railway in use throughout the entire year, with a transport, far exceeding expectations, of 371019 passengers and 314626 Dutch pounds of goods and a revenue of 183266.37 guilders, whilst during that year not a single accident had happened.
Quote from: Ranran on January 19, 2022, 05:43:34 PMNote that the same kind of problem exists with freecapacity records. I haven't made any changes to this as I couldn't think of any ideas to improve this.I am curious if anyone has any ideas to improve this.
