would it be possible to add a trigger for lines that do not have had income during one entire year? You know, a window pup-up like the ones when vehicles are turning old. Often one discovers a tried up line many years of heavy losses and no income.September 18, 2014 at 00:13 #9001
Many of my lines deliberately make a loss, I don’t want 2 dozen popups every year.September 18, 2014 at 00:17 #9002FocheParticipant
there is already way too much pop up in this game ,i think a
$symbol over the line is a better idea

I don’t eigther want a pop-up when a line makes a loss. That would be too much, agree. But when a line has NO INCOME at all in one year, I suspect a problem. Then I like a popup. 😉September 18, 2014 at 15:51 #9143
Well you did say: “Often one discovers a tried up line many years of heavy losses and no income.”September 18, 2014 at 20:50 #9173Cpt.SpaghettiParticipant
Well, no income is no income 😉 i think he wrote it clearly.
But we need this to enable or disable in options. Sometimes you just build a line for beauty or anything or to test things out. I wouldnt like to have popups all the time.September 18, 2014 at 22:37 #9184xynixParticipant
You kind of have a pop up already. Just bring up the line box in November or so and you can see what’s making and what’s losing. I don’t see a reason to force information on people when the information is a single click away.September 18, 2014 at 23:32 #9197
@cpt. spaghetti And “heavy losses” are “heavy losses”, he wrote that quite clearly too, in the OP.September 18, 2014 at 23:40 #9200VaranaParticipant
Also, in accordance with the general design philosophy of the game, it would probably open up a pop-up with little information but a detailed view of one of the vehicles, just to slow your computer down and eat up memory. 😉September 19, 2014 at 09:32 #9268
I’m sorry that my choice of words were not very clear, and I understand that many of you do not like yet more game slowing pop-up windows. But my intentions were noble, to help the player (read: me) in localizing potential problems.
When one has 50+ lines operating, and 300+ vehicles running, one does not check every line, every vehicle month after month if it’s running fine. You expect lines continue to operate as you set them up. But once a line does not generate any income during a full year, something is wrong (broken path, industry stopped producing,…). I would like a notice when this happens. The developers have implemented the window pop-up system, so I proposed to use it.
But if you like the have another kind of noticing system in stead of the pop-up window (e.g. a pop-up tekst box, a ticker,…. ), that is fine for me, but that is another discussion.
I hope it’s more clear now. 😉 Sorry for the confusion.
