[FEATURE REQUEST] Rail checkpoints/Go via

Post by moorent » Fri Mar 03, 2017 6:09 am

Is there any chance that we can get "go via" orders and waypoints added to the game. They would hopefully function exactly as they do in OpenTTD (not sure if the original game had the functionality).

For those that are unfamiliar, a "go via" order would instruct a train to travel through the selected station on it's way to it's destination. A waypoint would essentially be a lower cost, bare-bones station that serves as a checkpoint or target for 'go via' orders. Trains do not slow down when crossing waypoints.

This feature would give players more control over the flow of traffic through their rail systems.

Many discussions about this. The trend is currently to improve pathfinding instead, cause via-stops are too much micro-management.
