I can proudly present an update to TF2s most popular mod: Timetables!
This mod adds timetables to the game.
Timetables can be configured for each line and each station individually. There are three types of timetable constraints that can be added to a station:
Arrival/Departure: You can add arrival/departure timeslots. The train chooses the closest arrival time slot when entering the station, and then waits until the departure time.
Unbunch: You can set the frequency and the mod will enforce that the trains will depart this station with the given frequency.
Auto Unbunch: You can set the line to automatically unbunch each vehicle by the frequency of the line.
Trains will depart right away when they are late, without interference from the mod. The timetable mod uses the game the stop command and can therefore only enforce longer waiting times. It won’t make trains drive faster or load/unload quicker.
Timetables are only working when the checkbox on the line overview is ticked.
This mod is a fork of the original and adds the following features:
Supports multiple vehicles at the same station
Remembers the timetable slot of vehicles after a load-save cycle
Adds Auto Unbunch to automatically unbunch vehicles regardless of how many are on the line
Updated colours to support the Spring Update line colours
Minimum waiting time is supported
Maximum waiting time is supported
Things to beware of
Saves can be transferred from the original mod to this mod
Saves cannot be transferred from this mod back to the original mod
Therefore, I would recommend making backups of saves before migrating to this mod
The behavior for picking timetable slots has changed. Vehicles now pick the nearest slot, regardless of whether it is in the past or the future.
To support multiple vehicles at the same station, vehicles will pick the next consecutive available arrival time when the nearest is taken.
