FS#1279 - Cannot select individual vehicles for upgrade
["Autoreplace should be an individual vehicle property". Second edition]
Hello, Bjarni, sorry bothering you again, but I believe I have to.
First of all, thanks for your respond and a lot of thanks for what you've already done!
You're absolutelly right - autorenew/autoreplace got me confusing. That's why I probably missed the AUTOREPLACE feature.
The Autoreplace (just tested it) is a really great feature and helps a lot, but...
...But now I'm confused again. I still cannot solve major problem: how can I select individual vehicles for upgrade?
Real example from recently played game.
I've created a huge road empire and at the end of 1930' I had over 200 same 20-seats MAK buses (I use most popular PikkaBird's RV set v3.34). At that moment some new buses appeared (or were about to appear) on the market, so the time for upgrade already came. Now I wanted to replace the MAK buses which served major airports to new 55-seats 96 km/h models; the interstate long rangers - to 41-seats 127 km/h model; the suburban short rangers - to 26-seats 104 km/h "Clipper"; and around 30 buses serving small villages - left as it (just renew).
So, it supposed I shoulda switch off Autorenew in patch config and set Autoreplace, right?
Well, I go to Autoreplace window and find out that the only whole bunch of MAKs can be set for upgrade. I still cannot select individual vehicles and have to go with manual replacement. And I already know (and I already described it to you) what will happen next and what I will end up with.
So I have no choice - I have to pick the only destination model for upgrade and replace all MAKs to, lets say, Clipper. But it's certainly not a choice I like. My will is limited once again. I gotta accept unification, or I can do it manually and face the hustle...
Did I miss something once again?
Do I have an ability to pick the only dedicated vehicles I want to upgrade to some special model and leave other vehicles of same model untouched?..
So far I don't see or cannot find this ability.
Without that the Autoreplace doesn't have a lot of sense.
See, folks who play with huge amount of vehicles in game, are usually advanced users, the "artists", and they certainly don't like unification. They're the ones, who need automation most of all.
It's simply doesn't look realistic, when whole country rides same bus, same truck, same plane. It's silly, it's boring, it's not interesting.
The group replacement doesn't work for me. The individual selection - that's the feature I really want to have.
The solution you designed is not bad at all. But if you can make these groups expandable to individual vehicles (so I can check the ones I want to upgrade) - it will be logically finished.
Can you do it for all TT funs? They will never forget you. I'd say first that you're the God :)
Do we have a deal, or you'll bounce me back once again?..
This task depends upon
