I've been having a wierd problem with busses - basically they stop (as if theyd been told to) and if you tell them to start again they stop soon after - unforts the only save game i have at present is with the 3 airports patch by richk but ill see if i can get a save without that patch on.
anyone else seen this bug?
Is there anyway at all to turn this feature off?
yes, however im seeing it when the bus leaves a station not when it leaves a depot.chazz wrote:/chazzgigajum wrote:The AI stops buses and trucks within a faw tiles after they visit the depot if the station they heading to is busy.
and as invisible says - its a serious bug because you get massive roadblocks as a result
furthermore it seems that some busses are "prebooking" the station, so ive got say 2 busses half way across the town who have apparently filled the station so the bus leaving the other station stops just outside.
2) If you post a problem without savegames it is not easy to improve the situation. So PLEASE post savegame en masse
In the future, I think that new truck (and bus) stations should be introduced. In a roro-fashion, and expansible (just like you set the number of tracks on a train station, you would be able to choose the number of loading bays/passenger platforms). This also would allow the introduction of trucks with trailers, and articulated buses.* Currently this impossible since road vehicles are allowed to rotate at one spot, which would cause obvious problems with trucks with trailers. And the current truck/bus stations need this in order to work.
However, I think that the way of stopping road vehicles in this way is bad. You don't wish to have a vehicle wait for a slot on a station far away to clear. It should stop anywhere near the target station (for instance, only stop vehicles if they are 1 or 2 squares from a loading bay), or drive around until the station is accessible.
I will not post a savegame here. I think the feature works as intended. Only the intention is not good in my opinion. And there are still some other bugs in road vehicle handling, but I will not tell them since they are not that important, and I don't want someone to waste his/her time to get those issues solved (since I already did myself).
*If there are people curious to know my plans regarding this, then maybe I will open a separate topic for this.
I'm currently working on further improving the road vehicle handling, which will cause much much less paused vehicles, instead most vehicle will queue in front of existing stations in a balanced manner. Will hopefully be in tomorrow's nightly.
If you DO have a problem/bug, you should report it on bugs.openttd.org. Otherwise it'll be resident until some dev accidently stumbles over it.
I was able to resolve gordian knots, and I was able to manage number of road vehicles to be proportional to cargo production. Maybe stopping lorrys is okay, but not stopping busses!
When I connect two medium cities with buses, I want to have three buses on road each direction and one stopped in each busstop. But now, only four buses are usable for such transport. Bus does not leave the source busstop before one of the two previous buses reach and leave destinantion busstop. So the transport looks like one pair of busses going there and one back. One or two more buses will lock the route.
(Now I'm not talking about AI, but about my own buses. Using some post 0.4.5 nightly with airports patch...)
