  1. <title>Help - depot</title>
  2. <h1>Depot dialog</h1>
  4. <p>
  5. In the depot, you can buy, sell, connect or switch all vehicles parked in the depot into convoys (sets). The depot dialog shows you which vehicles you can buy and which you have already bought.
  6. </p>
  8. <p>
  9. From top to bottom, the depot window consists of several bars with different functions.
  10. </p>
  12. <p>
  13. At the very top is a counter showing the position in the total list of convoys in the depot. Use the arrows at the first text field to switch between parked convoys. The text field displays their name, which can also be edited here.
  14. </p>
  16. <p>
  17. Below this, there is an identical element that enables line selection. See more about the lines below.
  18. </p>
  20. <p>
  21. The currently active convoy and its details are displayed in the area between the text fields and bookmarks. The number of vehicles in the convoy, the required length of the station, the value of the convoy at the time of sale, the achievable speed when empty (and loaded) and finally the line served by the convoy are indicated here.
  22. </p>
  24. <p>
  25. By clicking on any vehicle of the displayed convoy, this vehicle is "conserved" - it ceases to be part of the convoy and is only visible as a number above its type in the table of available vehicles. From there it can be picked up again and put into another convoy.
  26. </p>
  28. <p>
  29. There is also a set of buttons for working with the selected convoy. On the far left is the <strong>start</strong> button, which you can use to "launch" the convoy from the depot - if it already has a <a href="schedule.txt">schedule</a> set. With the next button <strong>schedule</strong>, it can be adjusted individually for the selected convoy. With the <strong>disassemble</strong> button, you can disassemble the entire convoy and preserve individual vehicles. Use the <strong>sell</strong> button to sell the entire current convoy.
  30. </p>
  32. <p>
  33. The second row of buttons makes it easier to work when creating a larger number of convoys. The <strong>new line</strong> button creates a new line, opens a window for editing its <a href="schedule.txt"timetable</a> and selects it in the list above. The <strong>assign line</strong> button assigns the current convoy to the selected line. <strong>Change line</strong> allows you to modify the timetable of the selected line. <strong>Copy</strong> creates a duplicate of the current convoy from vehicles available in the depot or newly purchased, including line assignments or route plan settings.
  34. </p>
  36. <p>
  37. The table in the middle with bookmarks shows the purchasable types of vehicles. The list can have a total of 4 cards: <br>
  38. * vehicles for personal transport,<br>
  39. * electric passenger sets (trams, trolleybuses, electric units...),<br>
  40. * power vehicles (locomotives, tractors, etc.) and<br>
  41. * attachable vehicles (wagons and trailers).<br>
  42. If no vehicles are available in some of these categories, the corresponding tab may not be displayed. Preserved vehicles are shown here with a large number above the vehicle icon.
  43. </p>
  45. <p>
  46. Below the table is a trio of elements changing its content and its handling. <strong>Show all</strong> switches between displaying all vehicles or only those that can be placed at the ends of the current convoy. <strong>Show Obsolete</strong> will also show types of vehicles that are no longer produced in the depot.
  47. </p>
  49. <p>
  50. The button switches the type of handling of the table of purchasable vehicles when clicking on its item. <strong>Add</strong> buys the given vehicle type and attaches it to the end of the current convoy. If a preserved piece is available, use it instead of buying a new one. another mode is <strong>to start</strong> which is identical but the vehicle is added at the start instead of the end. The last option is <strong>sell</strong>, which allows you to sell vehicles preserved in your depot.
  51. </p>
  53. <p>
  54. At the very bottom, information about the vehicle whose icon is under the cursor is displayed.
  55. </p>
  57. <p>
  58. To create a convoy, it is advisable to proceed from front to end, i.e. first buy locomotives and then buy wagons. It is possible to work with only one convoy at a time. Moving vehicles between convoys is possible using preservation (see above).
