I just tried this patch and I like the idea, instead of roughly adding in my head the individual vehicles to see how much profit my services make each year I can see it right there on one line, but I think instead of showing the usage at the time of opening groups window, yearly averages displayed as "usage this year" and "usage last year" would be much more helpful for deciding if adjustment to capacity is needed, and would also fit better with the way profits are displayed.
I also updated and extended the patch Trip History
, which contains a similar idea. The occupancy/usage of a vehicle is shown for the last 10 trips:http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=33411&start=20#p1146577
Calculation occupancy/usage yearly should be doable. These values (occupancy in current and last year) should also be displayed in the vehicle detail window.
It should be discussed, if usage/occupancy of a vehicle should be averaged over time, over distance between stations or just averaged at each station without weight.
I don't know if occupancy which is averaged over a longer period contains any information at all. Long time changes (comparing occupancy of current and last year) should be visible in profit too.
In my opinion, current usage as realized in my extension of the Group Info patch has an average:
You can see short time effects as a blocked road or something else.
Does anybody else find occupancy/usage of a vehicle (group) useful?
