This patch adds King's Cross-style departure boards to stations, and the ability to show ingame time in hours and minutes (hh:mm format) instead of days, months and years.WARNING
In its default state, this patch breaks multiplayer compatibility
with unpatched OpenTTD. Multiplayer compatibility may be retained by modifying src/timetable.h so that the value of WALLCLOCK_NETWORK_COMPATIBLE is 1 (one). However, if this is done it will no longer be possible to set timetable start dates in the hh:mm format exactly. I have done limited testing of this - use it at your own risk.
Savegames are mostly compatible; however any vehicles that have not yet started their timetable and have not reached their first order may have their schedule messed up. This can be resolved by resetting their late counters.END WARNINGdiff
Please post any problems/bugs/suggestions/feedback you have! Unfortunately I cannot provide support for using this patch except with the specified SVN trunk revision.win32 binary
This binary is not multiplayer compatible with trunk
Unfortunately I cannot provide support for using this binary. Good luck!Notes for interoperability with other patches
Vehicle timetable start dates are changed to be in ticks rather than days unless network compatibility is enabled.
To display a time, use STR_WALLCLOCK_x where x is one of LONG, SHORT, TINY, and ISO. It accepts a single argument; the time to be displayed in ticks. This should be an int64.departureboardsAbout
This patch adds a "Departures" button to the station view window. When clicked, this opens a window showing the vehicles timetabled to depart from the station.
The design was inspired by the departure boards at train stations in the UK (specifically King's Cross).Features
Whether to show company name or vehicle name (or both) next to each departure can be configured.
If a list of stations called at is too long to fit in the window, it will automatically scroll.
"Service at *" orders should be handled correctly.
Trains can be listed as going via a station (e.g. Inverness via Edinburgh Waverley) by adding an order to the train to go (optionally non-stop) via the station.
Handling of vehicles that have been delayed or that have already arrived already arrived is shown in the screenshot. If a train is late but the time it is expected to arrive is unknown (e.g. if it broke down just before arriving) it will be listed as "Delayed".
Future recurrences of timetabled departures may be shown (subject to the conditions set by the patch options).
The "Calling at: *" text of departures can be made to use a larger font than shown in the screenshots if desired.
There is rudimentary support for RTL languages.
Vehicles will only be listed as departing from a station if they have an order to load from that station with a nonzero wait time, and all their orders have a travel time set.
Departure boards can be set to show departures, arrivals, both or neither.Patch options
