Ocean City Problem

Ywang pls come back... Sorry if I do something wrong but we start this city together and pls.. come back Sorry if I was an egoist with you((( pls come back


I understand your current feelings, as I was also rejected before. However, when people make decisions, they assume that they will accept the consequences. Now I do accept what I have after resignation.
I feel sorry that I didn't take screenshots of the chat between me and User:Smacker, but one thing I do remember is that Ocean City is not a city - it has no public facilities and is badly designed.
Ever since you started to take fares in Mushroom Market, I realized that it would fall because of not being competitive enough - who would buy a stand if there is a free one in Spawn? Who would go to a place with such high living cost and the requirement for building materials when they could choose freely in other places? The only reason that appears to attract people is the MV supply.
That only showed that you have taken too much from the people of Ocean City, and someday you will pay for it - at the cost that this city falls. And what about me? Financial fraud is no joke at all, and I do take it seriously.
I understand that you may not realize the consequence(s) of doing so, but this is too much to be forgiven, and I will not go back to Ocean City.
Ok, I acept it. Now in OC all is free, only 5mg for living cost in Capital, Dis One free. Tomorrow i ll back money to OC players.
I do understand that you are trying to fix the problem that I have pointed put, but this is simply part of the problem. Another problem is that Ocean City needs more public facilities. Consider building a hotel, a tech station (chargers and tool workshops), and a larger market
I hope my suggestion can help you, but I'm not going back. "Good luck with Ocean City".
I appreciate your help, thanks )
It's ok. I simply hope that you can do it better.
Ywang, I hope we could remain the same friends.
I need to think about it.

ARSE7's Old Luacontroller

About the Lua problem: now i know how use it, i didnt knowed this first (frequency) , i hope that this incident dont cause me too much troubles... --User:ARSE7

I used 4Hz Luacontrollers before, but the results were same as 1Hz ones, and I was warned that I could be banned for 4Hz Luacontrollers. I haven't finished setting up my tree machine yet, but I used 0.2Hz Luacontrollers before they were moved.


Its nice that you build your city)

There is just one problem: some basic facilities appear to be missing, and line 1 comes once in about 106 seconds. I'll finish this as soon as possible, and then you will notice a new Wiki page that is in the "Cities" list.

BS routemaps

Good to see you adding some routemaps to the wiki but please include tunnel portals in your routemaps:

  • tSTRa - tunnel start
  • tSTRe - tunnel end

See the BSicon Catalogue for a good catalogue of the icons. --Blockhead (talk) 02:23, 7 August 2019 (CEST)

Blockhead: thanks. I'll add the tunnel portals. --Yw05 (talk) 15:39, 7 August 2019 (CEST)
Update: Sorry, I wrote that using my alt account so the signature is yw05. --Ywang (talk) 18:11, 7 August 2019 (CEST)

Also, your turnouts [places where the track diverges] seem to be only facing to the right. This is bad, and inaccurate. Use "l" instead of "r" in the second to last character to fix this. Also, maybe these turnouts should be labeled like the mainlines (example, E1 to Personhood) for consistency. --Nanepiwo (talk) 00:40, 12 August 2019 (CEST)

Station names on the wiki

I appreciate your attempt to distinguish stations that are in crossroads from others but please use a more standard naming scheme. Wikipedia always uses suffixes, like "Station <(Placename)>" or "Station, <Placename>"


I'd prefer the brackets suffix as it is already on used on this wiki to denote different modes like:

--Blockhead (talk) 04:55, 13 September 2019 (CEST)

Blockhead, I guess I would keep my current naming scheme because it's easier for me to sort the station codes in my LuaATC environment, which also use prefixes for places (i.e. cr* instead of *cr), and I think this is the influence from the station names here IRL, which also uses prefixes like:

  • Heidelberg-Altstadt
  • Heidelberg-Kirchheim/Rohrbach
  • Heidelberg, Rohrbach Süd
  • Leimen, Friedhof
  • Leimen, Zementwerk

(Although in most cases only "Rohrbach Süd", "Zementwerk", etc. are written)
For stations serving multiple types of trains, I would usually use different names (except for North/East/South/West/Central/Main Station), like IRL ("HD-Kirchheim/Rohrbach" and "S-Bahnhof Kirchheim/Rohrbach").
However, I would also keep the brackets ("(Subway)", "(Express)", "(Regional)", etc) to distinguish stations that are served by different types of trains and use the same name, but I don't think I need them at the moment.
--Ywang (talk) 14:27, 13 September 2019 (CEST)

Ywang, you have missed the point. This has nothing to do with the station codes. This has to do with consistent style for an English wiki. The way you are naming your wiki pages on stations is not fluent in English. Yes I understand you may want to write these pages in "big-endian" kind of order where the general area comes before the less specific one, but this is where your convenience comes at the cost of user comprehension.

I can see you have made some pages with commas in them like Silver Coast, Central Station. I am not sure of the rules about commas in German but in English this is an unnecessary and frankly annoying comma. An English speaker does not pause at all when saying Silver Coast Central Station, but wherever there is a comma there is supposed to be a brief pause in speech. This is just as annoying to read as it is to say aloud.

Consider some more examples: Ref: Central railway station, Brisbane [1]

Equivalently to "Central railway station, Brisbane" you could write "Brisbane central railway station" and be well-understood in English. But if you wrote "Brisbane, central railway station", you would not be writing in fluent English; a native speaker/writer of English would never write or say that. Key word here: English, not German. I am not going to dictate what convention the wiki might follow if it were written in German.

"South Brisbane railway station" is a name that stands on its own without commas or brackets. Now here comes the weirdness with English place names: There is no hard and fast rule about whether you should call a place "<Direction> <Place>" or "<Place Direction>". South Brisbane and Brisbane South are equivalent; but in every case one variation dominates and is the one written down as the official name. Coming back to pages you have wikified, you can fluently write "Silver Coast North Station"; but please don't write "Silver Coast, North Station" as it's an unnecessary comma. It is well understood to anybody fluent in English that "Silver Coast North Station" is a station in the north of Silver Coast. I can only imagine the annoyance of having to remember where the unnecessary comma goes as well.

I don't see a need for a correlation between your station codes and wiki page names - in fact they probably ought to be different as they are applied in very different contexts. Users want information in accessible and well-written format that is consistent with what they are used to - like English wikipedia. Railway operators want station codes to be internally ordered and consistent in scheme but there is a high level of assumed knowledge in the encoding and it is up to the operator to assign codes as they see fit. I won't dictate to you how to assign your station codes at all, but I want the wiki to be both self-consistent and consistent with Wikipedia to an extent.

Blockhead, I think I got your point now. Thanks.
Also, afaik commas in German aren't used like this either, but it appears that (at least) some bus companies would do this as a separation. German Main/East/etc stations odn't use commas or '-' either (i.e. "Heidelberg Hbf" instead of "Heidelberg, Hauptbahnhof" or "HD-Hauptbahnhof").
