Sorry, I've already checked in forum but found nothing relevant or too old.
I'd like to group vehicles and define orders per group.
When I move vehicle to another group, it takes orders defined for this different group.
Is it possible you think ?
Thanks in advance.
- Select the vehicle you just moved.
- From the list of orders, click Go to, then ctrl+click one of the vehicles already in the group.
I've created trains which transport only good from "factory" to city.
When city refuses goods, trains are useless and reduce drastically their revenues.
For this kind of event, I'd like to create trains groups like "Goods from factory to city 1" with route defined... from factory to city 1
When city 1 refuses goods, I'd like to move trains from this group to another group for which another route is defined.
Not sure I'm clear but I hope you get my point.
#1 Buy one train, give it orders to move goods from Factory to City 1
#2 Buy more trains as needed via "Copy Train" and CTRL+Click, setting up the new trains to have shared orders
#3 Create a group called "Goods from Factory to City 1"
#3 CTRL+Drag any one of your trains into that group - the others will automatically also be assigned to the group
Now, when the city stops accepting goods:
#1 Open the timetable for any of your trains in the "Goods from Factory to City 1", delete its "Go to City 1" order and add an "Go to City 2" order
#2 Rename the "Goods from Factory to City 1" group to "Goods From Factory to City 2".
(And I have successfully managed 200 ... 300 trains plus several hundred road vehicles with this system. It does take a little bit of getting used to it and is less intuitive than the system in Transport Fever, where you first set up a line and then add vehicles, but it has the massive advantage that you do not need to first set up a line. I often have freight lines that are served by a single train, and I usually don't set up groups for those because it just isn't worth it.)
