Very useful option. So useful, that it already is implemented  ;D. See version 100.0 or the latest nightly.

No. Implement is 'max wait time'.

This is 'min wait time'.

hi,

frank is right. i mean the minimum wait time at stations. in all versions the minimum wait time is 2 seconds. my idea is to change this time for station individually.

Couldn't we just use the same interface as for the max. wait time (which as far as I understood it - haven't really played with it much - only works together with setting a mininum load percentage)?

So maybe we could change that so that it works even with mininum load percentage set to "0" - so that it doesn't care for load but always waits until the time is up - and that would give us a minimum waiting time, would it not?

hi,

i made a simutrans game and you can download and test it. if one train stops in a station all of the waiting time passangers can enter the train. i hope you understand what i tried to say :-)

OK, can anybody explain why the minimum wait time option is useful?  ::)

In my opinion this is not better as maximum wait time in combination with 100% load percentage. I can see why you want a minimum distance between vehicles, because they tend to clog up (get very close behind each other) if you don't do anything. But I don't mind when vehicles do that, if they have a 100% load percentage. Makes no sense to wait in such a case. If they are not 100% full, then it is better to let them wait a while, but that is exactly what the maximum wait time is doing.

What do I overlook?

Where is your game ?
I couldn't find your game in it.

BTW, I tested this patch and was disappointed.
Convois can't load goods which arrived at the station while waiting.
It waits after leaving the station.
