12:10:30  <coopserver> <Anson> hallo
12:10:40  <coopserver> <plonka> hey anson
12:11:07  <coopserver> <Anson> did you build the third lane ?
12:11:27  <coopserver> <plonka> yeah i built it yesterday afternoon
12:12:19  <coopserver> <Anson> i had done some small improvements to the double line ... it worked better, but also attracted more trains and thus was soon full again :-)
12:12:41  <coopserver> <plonka> yeah i saw them
12:12:46  <coopserver> <Anson> then i was too tired to do serious work and left the third lane for someone else :-) LOL
12:12:53  <coopserver> <plonka> hehe
12:13:14  <coopserver> <Anson> i saw later that someone had asked about "evil mode" ....
12:13:21  <coopserver> <plonka> yeah me
12:13:35  <coopserver> <Anson>
12:14:00  <coopserver> <Anson> when you have a double bridge or double tunnel, you easily make the problem worse ....
12:14:39  <coopserver> <Anson> the first train stops at the merge, thus it has to accelerate again, and the train from the other bridge has to stop too because it was faster
12:14:53  <coopserver> <Anson> thus it needs to accelerate again, etc etc ...
12:15:19  <coopserver> <Anson> that problem will persist until there is a large gap ... thus "evil mode"
12:15:30  <coopserver> <Player> !name Taggerts
12:15:31  <coopserver> *** Player has changed his/her name to Taggerts
12:15:44  <coopserver> *** Taggerts has joined company #4
12:15:58  <coopserver> <Anson> there are several methods what can be done, but the most simple is to use block signals and not presignals or pbs
12:16:35  <coopserver> <plonka> ok
12:16:52  <coopserver> <Anson> with presignals or pbs, you guarantee that never a train will jam at the start of the double bridge/tunnel, and thus the problem persists forever
12:17:32  <coopserver> <Anson> with normal block signals, sooner or later a train will use the "wrong" bridge, and thus the double bridge clears itself
12:18:00  <coopserver> <plonka> i see
12:18:05  <coopserver> <Anson> you pay the price of a short jam, but are rewarded with evilmode having gone by itself :-)
12:18:31  <coopserver> *** plonka has joined spectators
12:18:33  <coopserver> *** plonka has started a new company #6
12:18:48  <coopserver> *** plonka has joined company #1
12:18:58  <coopserver> <Anson> it may depend on the situation, but i think that mostly there is no reason to use presignals or pbs at double bridges
12:19:37  <coopserver> <Anson> (except that using pbs saves one tile if space is tight, but that is another subject)
12:20:00  <coopserver> <plonka> ok
12:21:33  <coopserver> <Anson> something else : if someone changes train orders so that a train shares orders with another group of trains, it is best to immediately update the train list
12:22:14  <coopserver> <Anson> very simple : just ctrl-drag a train tits own/old group, and all newly moved trains will go to the same group
12:22:35  <coopserver> <Anson> it is difficult to see that later and all advantage from using groups is gone
12:22:44  <coopserver> <Anson> AFK now ... dinner
12:22:54  <coopserver> <plonka> ok
13:35:39  <coopserver> <Anson> back
13:35:43  <coopserver> <plonka> wb
13:36:28  <coopserver> <Anson> just got a warning on my smartphone ... had installed a new app last week, and today it got me a message ...
13:36:39  <coopserver> <Anson> "SEVERE WEATHER WARNING"
13:36:50  <coopserver> <plonka> :O
13:37:28  <coopserver> <plonka> where do you live again?
13:37:47  <coopserver> <Anson> a nice idea ... how do you inform lots of people of emergencies in their region, weather warnings, and similar
13:38:14  <coopserver> <plonka> tv i guess
13:38:28  <coopserver> <Anson> decades ago, it was done with sirenes (word? spelling?) on roofs, but then they stopped using them
13:38:42  <coopserver> <plonka> sirens yes
13:39:15  <coopserver> <Anson> now i saw that there is an app which alerts people about official warnings ... and then people shall go to tv or radio to se details
13:39:54  <coopserver> <plonka> sweet
13:40:27  <coopserver> <Anson> not everybody needs that app, but with the big number of smartphones, already some small percentage will be good enough to alert most people (indirectly) ...
13:42:40  <coopserver> <Anson> in some areas in germany, there was already quite some damage (fallen trees, damaged catenary, damaged cars from trees falling on them while driving, etc)
13:43:13  <coopserver> <plonka> uk hardly ever has such events
13:43:29  <coopserver> <plonka> maybe once every 5 years or something
13:43:41  <coopserver> <Anson> and i just saw on TV that in some state all train traffic is suspended this afternoon
13:45:48  <coopserver> <Anson> we don't have hurricanes like in the USA, but a single tornado in a whole decade was rare, 2-3 decades ago ... now we get that almost every year, sometimes even more than one
13:46:18  <coopserver> <plonka> wow you get tornados in germany?
13:46:40  <coopserver> <plonka> i always thought they we us only :/
13:47:32  <coopserver> <Anson> they are called differently, but it is essentially the same ...
13:47:53  <coopserver> <plonka> ok
13:48:45  <coopserver> <plonka> i got to go tidy up and stuff

16:09:20  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> ar  k
16:09:25  <coopserver> <plonka> sign?
16:09:27  <coopserver> <Anson> maybe I'll connect that station to another SL
16:10:09  <coopserver> <Anson> the line that passes the dead resource cotton04 and then services only toffee02
16:10:22  <coopserver> <Anson> could be connected directly to cotton02
16:11:46  <coopserver> <Anson> i can't do much anything else ... my big lag is back again, probably after 800 total trains again
16:13:11  <coopserver> <Anson> i can't ... too much lag ... 30 seconds normal, 30 seconds almost frozen
16:13:48  <coopserver> <plonka> ok watch near that this sign
16:25:36  <coopserver> <Anson> quad line = 2x8 lanes = 16 tunnels/bridges
16:26:08  <coopserver> <Anson> or reverse the logic, and build 8 straight, and the other line over/under those 8
