Quote from: Bernd Gabriel on October 24, 2009, 10:03:45 PM3) In calc_acceleration there is a comment: "...if delta_t is too large the calculation may get weird results...", which might have been meant to be related to integer overflows, but even without such an overflow the result will get weird: The used formular is reasonable only for small delta_t (= time passed since previous calculation).
Quote from: prissi on October 28, 2009, 07:43:42 PMThe main problem with real formula is, that in simutrans distances (and times) do not (and cannot) match reality. Trams taking a days for the five stations to central station would never been something anybody would ride in reality ... Same goes for trains accelerate and brake within on or two tiles as in reality. Or, if a tile is like 100m (following the vehicle sizes), then the largest maps are something like 300km and nothing to simulate europe or the world.

Quote from: Hajo on November 08, 2009, 07:57:50 PMThe Tigress series was meant to be superfast futuristic rail engines, that were invented to counter the uprising competition of maglev technology. In my times the base tigress was 450 km/h I think, and there was no limit for train length that would have hindered it down to 120km/h
Quote from: Hajo on November 08, 2009, 08:02:58 PMOk. At least something. I was shocked for a moment.
Quote from: Hajo on November 08, 2009, 08:02:58 PMEdit: Sorry for the drastic words above. I'm somewhat itchy sometimes about certain attributes of my former work, and may overreact if I think I need to defend those.Edit 2: If the Tigress is still that mighty, no need to take action in response to my message. I still keep it, to show that I had certain ideas with some of my designs, and want those ideas preserved.
