When I'm playing, I usually create a group for every route. It's useful to have the vehicles organized by lists.
It would be even more useful if I had a 'Group Profit' stat. A little stat so I can evaluate how much profit (or non-profit) a specific group is making.

Could this be made?
This task depends upon

Where would you suggest to display these stats?

Live updates of these stats could be a performance issue, but a monthly update may be possible.

I thought of displaying it between the 'Rename group' and the 'Protect this group from global autoreplace' buttons, but that doesn't look a very organized place to put it.
Maybe a new button on 'Manage List' menu which, on click, would show a new window with this stat? Something like 'Show group profit'?
The stat could be calculated at the moment the window is open and monthly from there after if the window is still open.

So this would be a new window for just one number? I'd like the place between the buttons better then. For just the profit of the active group the available space should be enough.

Hmmm, I would think that a good place would be in the left-hand list, just to the left of the vehicle counts. You'll get overall and per-group. I agree that the update rate should be every month, or maybe every half month; it may be a good idea to let it be set by the config.

Just my 2 cents

To add my 2 cents:
I would doubt that there's enough room for the sums in the list if one uses meaningful group names. It might also be difficult to see the border between the sum and the count.

However the sums per group and the overall sum would probably warrant a dedicated window as suggested above.

 FS#4162  suggests to use a tooltip, see the picture there.

I did'nt know that it is already such a request. PS. I don't mean about "live update" - it's enough to just sum "last year profit" of X vehicles. It's simple, but really usefull. And easy to do that (?).
