SC4 Tool TE Problem

5 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I've included a couple of screen shots at what I'm looking at.


As you can see I have a rail TE, and a road TE which I'm trying to limit only freight trucks access on.


The problem I'm having is the road TE is allowing all traffic Peds, cars, etc. even though I have freight trucks only set.


This is a lot I downloaded from here but the lot needs some work. I will be using this for my map only and not re-listing it.


I also tried contacting the lotter but he hasn't been active in quite sometime.


Anyway the two TE's work just not exactly as I would like. So What am I doing wrong?


Is there a problem with the original lot maybe? Since I'm just fixing some of the textures not showing up and adding the TE's.

You're expecting the TE feature of SC4 to work properly.  It doesn't.


If the errors you're seeing are just on the automata level, consider yourself lucky.  The automata don't really mean anything.  But you can't separate out cars, buses, and freight trucks.  That's why there are no bus lanes.


On the other hand, if the Route Query Tool shows cars and buses getting into that lot, well, that happens.  Over at the NAM, I recently dealt with a situation where freight was transfering from trains to trucks in a station, even though there were no freight truck switches in the transit switch point.  Go figure.

You know, the more we dig into this program the more it clearly needs maintenance.  Too bad EA has lost interest in that but won't release the source.  The NAM team and some others have the knowledge to fix a lot of this stuff it they could only get at it.

  • Yea EA is just the same as most money grubbing software companies. They create a program, wring out all they can of it, buggy or not then drop it like a bad habit. Then when someone comes along and says I can fix that, they don't want to give up the code because they are afraid that that's just what someone like the NAM team or someone else would do and EA wouldn't make a dime on it. God forbid that!!!  


    I think I'll send a nasty email to the idiots and tell them they need to give up on trying to do anything that actually works and let someone else do what they can't or don't want to do with it!! Of course that won't convince them to give it up but I'll get to blow off some steam on them!!! :D
