Is there any chance of adding another option to the Manage Vehicles function, so that under Start replacing vehicles one can
Replace only vehicles with reliability less than x%
where x% is user specified, (even if only once in the Settings, constant thereafter).

This should be in addition to Replace only old vehicles
sometimes the reliability of a type goes dramatically down and stays down despite frequent servicing long before a vehicle gets old

:D

That's bad design on the part of the vehicle coder, imo, and should be reported as a bug. In any case, it should be affecting all vehicles of that model equally, so why not just replace the entire fleet?

Er, not quite bad design. I'm using one of yours, the UKRS, which is rather good, I think.

by dramatically down, I mean between 40 and 50 % but which can stuff up a busy line no end.

Replacing all of them isnt all that good, as I've built the vehicles over a longish period and the best are still at 80% reliability.
Also I dont have the money to replace all in a short period of time.

You have the option of conditional orders. So far you could use the current reliability as a condition (e.g. send unreliable vehicles for maintenance to a depot). A few days ago also the maximum reliability was added as a possible condition (e.g. send permanently to depot vehicles which will never get a decent reiability again).

i'm pretty sure that's the behaviour of the original vehicle set.

not that that's a contradiction... :p

also, not a lot of coders know how to use the early retirement and model life properties properly.

That's why m4nfo offers function

lifecycle(<introduction-date>, <last-building-year>, <withdrawal-year>)

incorporating said properties in a useful way.
