I recently started playing a bit more, and I typically start my games with simple bus routes. As the number of people waiting grows, I build more buses. Every time I start to get 20 or so buses between 5-10 cities, they seem to get lost or stuck. I've been using bus stops, but just realized there is a bus terminus as well. I don't know what the difference is, but the terminus does not seem to help my problem.
To try and simplify the issue, I started a new game and just put 2 bus stops in the same city. It works fine with 2-4 buses, but the more I have, the more they get lost/stuck. They drive on both sides of the road, and when one runs into another one, it turns around and wanders for a while. When the station already has a bus, other buses turn around and wander or get lost/stuck. It seems like they should wait till the bus leaves the terminal, and form a line.
Anyway, I must be doing something wrong, because the game seems to have very good ratings. For me it is unplayable.
No question. It is interesting though to find that something old was carried over into something new. Might be worth posting over in the iOS version's forum.grandpixel wrote:Just wanted to make sure you know I am talking about iPhone version, yes?
Perhaps CS has an aversion to standing in line in a queue and he considers this to be a featureroboboy wrote:... I remember locomotion having the same problem.
Road pathfinding is never perfect, and when a particular section of road is frequented by too many vehicles, some of them will stray away. I think that's actually in the code as a realistic way to prevent jams; it causes buses and trucks to go in circles if there is no other way to go, however.
Waypoints will help, but when the street is too busy then they become useless as well.
