- you scream to god: "Why, WHY, WHY?!!", when you see that a station in real life can't really fit 1,400 people and 200 tones of mail in it.
You know you haven't played anywhere near enough OTTD when ...
- You think mail is measured in "tones" [sic
I think a large station can easily hold more than 1.400 people in it. Utrecht Centraal
has about 145.000 passengers a day. Spread evenly over 24 hours that's hours about 6.000 an hour.
So, when I transfer data at a rate of approximately 3 GB per hour, that means that there's an average of 3GB bouncing around my network? I need to formalize this new storage technique. Especially for gigabit-ethernet; since that can achieve 450 GB per hour. I didn't have to buy that new disk after all. Just use the network for storage.
You failed to state your other assumption: That the average time spent there is 1 hour. That is an absurdly huge time to be spending in a train station. At least in enlightened countries where the trains do useful things.
Figuring an even spread and average time there of 20 minutes, that's only about 2000 people at any given time. Which is still over 1400, but not by nearly as much.
