Quote from: Wthrwyz on February 28, 2012, 07:36:50 PMIf the config tool is installed in your C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) folder, then you'll run into problems with the tool being able to write backups and save its own internal config (like options/where to look for the .dat file) because it tries to save these things inside the program directory. Windows Vista and 7 actually enforce the idea that the Program Files directory is for programs, not data, and these areas are owned by the system with no user access (which is why UAC kicks in when you try to install something new - remember that on Vista/7 even if you're an administrator, you do not run with administrator privileges by default). When you run the tool and it tries to write back to a folder under C:\Program Files to do its work, the write operation fails. I think Java pretty much ignores the error, so it looks like the program ran properly, but of course the settings don't actually get saved and if you dig through your system logs you'll find the root cause staring right back at you with a nice, fat "access denied" error.The simplest solution is to locate the folder where the TSCT is installed and to change its security settings (right-click the folder, select Properties, go to the Security tab) to allow the "Users" group Modify/Write access to the folder. The other option is to remove the TSCT from the Program Files directory and install it to its own folder directly under the C: drive - you may be able to just move the entire folder, as it is a Java program and likely won't break so long as you keep it in one piece. Just remember to modify your shortcuts to point to the new location.

QuoteFor instance I wish to be able to edit my network capacity to have street with a 1000 capacity while having highway with 60000 capacity (just an example), or I wish to set the speed of the various networks, just to experiment a bit.
QuoteAlso about buses did I understand correctly the readme when it said that basically, when you check on "buses contributes to traffic", each bus passenger count as a car ?
Quote from: Asgurd on August 17, 2012, 06:45:11 AMThanks, I guess I'll experiment with it later when I'm more comfortable with the transit system.
Quote from: b22rian on June 25, 2014, 03:49:02 AMWe have just 2 possibilities for any of these Sims to commute to this power plant to work- 1) drive 2) walkOf these 2, driving is clearly the quicker commute.
Quote from: z on June 25, 2014, 10:39:13 PMAlso, if you take your current setup and simply change the street into a road, all the Sims will drive.
Quote from: Korot on June 26, 2014, 02:03:33 PMI personally would find that an interesting test, especially since none of the houses have switched commute type. There are just more commuters.
Quote from: b22rian on September 19, 2015, 03:45:36 AMAny idea what might be going on here ?
Quote from: z on September 23, 2015, 10:23:12 PMYes, it's due to the fact that the Underground Rail is, well, underground. You can get the traffic volume numbers only for ground level or higher networks.
Quote from: z on September 24, 2015, 11:38:15 AMWell. that is definitely strange. It seems to me that underground rail and FLUP must have some difference in implementation, though I don't know what that would be.
