I am absolutely fascinated by this patch and would like to express my thanks and acknowledgements to the author
, nonetheless I would like to report a minor bug.
Now, firstly (skip this if you have little time)
, I try to play with "realistic" timetabling on "realistic" maps. At the moment I am working on a map of France. In the numerous Parisian termini I sometimes let two lines share the trains (we call this "Umlauf" in German) in order to not clog up my busy stations. This then looks like this:
Line A, every 120 mins (even hrs)
Toulouse - Paris - Toulouse
Paris Montparnasse a 12:00 d 12:00
Line B, every 120 mins (odd hrs)
Bordeaux - Paris - Bordeaux
Paris Montparnasse a 13:00 d 13:00
Paris (d 12:00) - Toulouse - Paris (a 16:00 d 17:00) - Bordeaux - Paris (a 21:00)
stay in Paris for 60 min each time
So rather than having three trains on each line waiting for 120 min in Paris, I have 5 on the combined vehicle park and let them wait for 60 min only. As the departure boards patch does not know French geography (how could it), it shows departures in Toulouse as "Bordeaux, calling at Paris".
The bug (start reading here if you have little time)
I have encountered is as follows:
- The departure boards patch does not show termini which are reached by calling at any station more than once, i.e.
in a timetable "Toulouse - Vendome TGV - Paris - Vendome TGV - Bordeaux" the train would be displayed in Toulouse as "Paris, calling at Vendome TGV" >>correct behaviour
- The patch does not have this behaviour when the train calls at waypoints more than once, i.e.
in a timetable "Toulouse - >>Vendome TGV (waypoint) - Paris - >>Vendome TGV (waypoint) - Bordeaux the train would be displayed in Toulouse as "Bordeaux, calling at Paris" (see screenshot, train 16 is the 09:20 departure from Toulouse)
Is there any easy way to fix this?
