Quote from: plutino on January 12, 2010, 06:09:33 PMMy question is, should bus usage be discounted for its contribution to congestions? Say, ten bus usages count as one car usage? Isn't this more reasonable?
QuoteWith the current 1:1 ratio (I assume), there isn't much reason to use bus to solve traffic problem.
Quote from: z on January 12, 2010, 10:14:35 PMIdeally, yes. However, this is not possible in SC4, as xxdita has just noted. We have basically two choices: Buses can count toward congestion the same as cars, or they can not count at all. Although neither choice is very good, the second one is actually worse, as it distorts the traffic simulation, since the traffic simulator can stuff an infinite number of Sims into buses with no penalty. This has a number of various subtle negative effects.That's actually not completely true. First, a certain proportion of each wealth level of Sims prefers mass transit, and they pay a time penalty getting to work if there's no mass transit available. Secondly, buses can be used as feeder lines to rapid transit (subway, commuter rail, etc.), which is much faster than car travel. Although cars can drive to these places, they need garages or parking lots in order to use them.
Quote from: z on January 25, 2010, 01:36:44 AMRelease of Simulator Z v2.2So here's the new version of Simulator Z. I think that RHW users will especially like it - you'll finally get to fill up all those lanes. Enjoy!

Quote from: Korot on January 27, 2010, 11:30:35 AMWeren't Traffic Generators used for the later purpose?
Quote from: z on January 27, 2010, 12:48:46 PMTraffic Generators increase the automata so that the roads look like they're being used, but they don't actually increase the traffic on them. If you check your Traffic Congestion and Volume Data Views before and after using a traffic generator, you'll find that they're unchanged. This release of Simulator Z fills up the lanes with more automata while preserving the relation of automata to actual traffic.
