I'm back trying to figure out timetables.
Could I have some guidance?
Say I have four trains on a route which all share orders and I want them half hourly. The timetable should equal 60minutes there and back again... is that correct?
Also is there any settings for day length and amount of ticks in a day that is best for timetables? I mean so they always sync up.
Half-hourly with four trains would mean having a timetable 120 minutes long.
The number of ticks per day is fixed at 74 (effectively multiplied by the day length factor). If you're timetabling in days, you'll want your number of ticks per minute to fit into that.
However, if you want clock-face timetables, you're probably better off timetabling in minutes, in which case the day length and ticks per day don't really matter.
You'll probably want to enable "show leftover ticks in timetable" in the settings.
If you are using timetable auto-fill, you may want to adjust the rounding value in the company settings so that it is a convenient multiple or factor of your number of ticks per minute.
You'll need to turn off timetable automation and tweak the timetable manually to make it the right length.
If you set the start dates yourself to a half hourly interval by use of control-click on the start-date button you can turn off auto-separation as well.
