New train stop dialog box only shows 3 trains

Post by Hammatime »

The new revamped train stop dialog box is comically small, showing only 3 trains at a time.

What ?
The newly redesigned train stop dialog was shrunk to only show 3 trains at a time compared to the "old" dialog design which expanded the UI as more trains were added to the stop. At 1440 resolution this dialog is now comically small, and makes it quite annoying to "visualize" the activity of a busy train stop. I realize that the list can be scrolled, but this is immediately annoying at busy stops with dozens of trains.

Can the UI auto-expand as more routes are added, like they did in the old version? Or, can we have an option in the interface options to choose how many trains to display at once? (e.g. 3,6,9, etc. )

a.) The new design with only 3 trains visible, at a stop with 12 trains scheduled.

b.) The old design with a UI that expands as more train routes are added.

I enjoy the design of the new UI, so I have no problems with that. It's just the 3 train visual limit greatly reduces how much information you're seeing at any one time.
Why ?
This is very much a Quality of Life request, but quickly becomes a big nuisance on maps with large train networks, and at high resolutions with so much more screen real estate.
