Quote from: lorenz4 on March 12, 2009, 12:30:45 PMThanks for your quick answer. Sorry, I was confused thinking that simulator Z was still using the speeds/capacities in this post:http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=5382.msg170200#msg170200Now I see you use the same speed/capacity for road/one-way/avenue, not sure why you decided to change that. The original Maxis values though are biased towards one-way/avenue (1000/2000/2500, also more speed for avenue), and I somehow agree with that because in RL avenues usually have higher legal speed; and also one-ways even they usually have the same permited speed they have a greater effective speed than two way roads because the traffic-light sequence effect. However I think that Maxis values are too much biased (2x Capacity on one-way over 2 ways is too much), I would chose something in the middle between that and Z, but that is just a personal opinion.
QuoteSo the intersection effect only affects roads? Do you know if it affects highways and RHW too?
QuoteAbout GLR speed, can you point me to any discusion that may arrise about it? I would like to know if that is implemented and also just curious about how the speed change can be implemented there.
QuoteAlso another question. Why is Monorail's "Travel type generates traffic" and "Travel type affected by traffic" properties both set to false, isn't that wrong?
Quote from: z on March 12, 2009, 02:00:01 PMYou're right - they should actually both be set to "true", and then monorails can get congested just like everything else! Right now, to my knowledge, monorail congestion isn't turned on in any traffic simulator, but I have been planning to do this for a while. As it's a minor change, I was waiting until I could get another minor fix ready too. But in the mean time, feel free to change those values to "true." That's what's eventually going to happen in the official version.
Quote from: lorenz4 on March 12, 2009, 04:10:39 PMHumm, do that means that the other rail networks generate pollution? Does subway also generates pollution? Also, will subway add to the congestion of a road that is just over it and therefore generate more pollution from that road?
Quote from: jplumbley on March 12, 2009, 02:31:06 PMActually, I dont know if it is currently set to true in the Simulators A and B, it was originally. There were many complaints about the Monorail then causing pollution, which was a result of one of those two properties being set to true. I know that these properties were linked to pollution of traffic types, but I have wondered if there was another property elsewhere that controlled the amount of pollution generated per unit for each traffic type. I never did look for it, so maybe you would want to look into that when you turn on traffic congestion for Monorails, because you will get many complaints about it as I did.
Quote from: z on March 12, 2009, 11:50:46 PMFinally, monorail pollution was tested in a fairly extreme situation. Brian (b22rian) has monorails that typically carry tens of thousands of passengers, and he turned on both of the travel type properties for them in Simulator Z. Pollution was no worse than for other travel types. So this shouldn't cause a problem for people who want to do turn on these properties now, or for when I do so in a future release of Simulator Z.
Quote from: z on March 13, 2009, 04:24:06 AMI believe the Clean Air Act fix should take care of that, but I'll be sure to look into it a bit more.
Quote from: lorenz4 on March 14, 2009, 09:48:06 AMBTW, I am just curious, how can you make GLR going slower than El-Rail being both the same network?
Quote from: lorenz4 on March 14, 2009, 09:48:06 AMYes, I have the "Clean Air Act" enabled (and the "Automobile Emission Reduction Act" too), I am using simulator Z low. I am talking about high volume areas though, I see polution over high volume roads but not over high volume rail (greenish). Do you know what is the pollution amount of each rail type? It is monorail worse?
Quote from: z on March 16, 2009, 12:14:33 AMI am sorry, but I do not know the pollution amount for each rail type. Perhaps someone else here does...
