Cars returning Home
« on: January 30, 2011, 12:11:36 AM »
If you follow a car in simutrans, you will notice that its driver never returns home. I would like to see a car, van, truck, etc. return to its home instead of constant roaming around my world.
     Thank You.

Not possible. Citycars are destroyed (vanish) after a time in the game and they are meant to be a decoration. Unless you meant another thing.

Remember, Simutrans is a transportation game simulator, not a world simulator.

I believe Simutrans Experimental has this kind of functionality, with citycars behaving more realistically.

Not quite - they don't return "home", but they do tend to move towards their destination. It'd require far too much computing power to keep track of many thousands of city cars in that detail on a larger map.
