Talk:Replace vehicles

We should include some information about the "Wagon removal" toggle button that appears on the trains' replacement window.

I have no idea what it's for, or I'd do it myself.

Update! Following experimentation, I reckon the button toggles whether or not replacing a 1-car engine (eg Brush 47) with a 2-car engine (eg Metro-Cammell) will simply extend the consist by one unit, or remove a wagon to compensate. I'm adding this conjecture to the page, please don't hesitate to shoot me down in flames if I've gone and written something daft and stupid and obviously wrong.

Thanks for updating the wiki page :) --MeusH 09:38, 30 March 2006 (CEST)


Where is the button?

Am I stupid? I see no such feature in 0.5.2? Only a Manage list dropdown. Zojj 22:18, 26 May 2007 (CEST)

I think he means the [Wagon removal: On] button in Replace train dialog

This screenshot shows the autoreplace window itself.

Merge in autoreplace

Autoreplace is pretty much the same node; I suggest merging the two into "Replace vehicles" (as that's the name in the UI) and making Autoreplace a redirect.--LionsPhil 21:25, 9 April 2008 (CEST)

Exchange for new of the same model

I can't exchange my old vehicles for new ones of the same type (e.g. Chimaeras after 20 years - I don't want to change them to Lev3 and back to Lev4 (which would probably work now), but just exchange the old ones for new ones, so they don't keep braking down - any way to do this?) -- Gorbalad 23:12, 29 June 2008 (CEST)

See Autorenew for that. Yexo 02:06, 30 June 2008 (CEST)

Thank you! -- Gorbalad 20:51, 1 July 2008 (CEST)

Autoreplace Refitted Vehicles

How does this work, I havent tried yet, but does anyone know if it will refitt the replaced vehicle to follow the replaced vehicles goods-carrying capabilities?

Reverse removal (or simply wagon adding)

I don't know how many can feel with me but if you play with additional packs where wagons and engines have other lengths than 0.5 (half of a tile) then upgrading trains can be still a pain.

For example when you start with steam ones that usually contain also a coal wagon behind the engine and are therefore 2 wagons long, now you may get a diesel one later so the coal wagon falls off and you lose capacity. It's a pain to fill these gaps which you have to do manually for every affected train. That pain get's even worse if you have wagons that are fittable to a large extend and also have varying lengths.

So to get where I wanna get: anyone else would like to have that feature keep the length as close as possible to the length before upgrading not only by removing wagons but also by adding new ones? And don't come with 'it doesn't know which to use', that's a weak excuse. If it simply removes the first wagon behind the engine it can also simply duplicate that one to fill a gap. 17:07, 12 November 2011 (UTC) BloodyRain2k
