Hi, first post - I’d like to know if there’s a post anywhere with a list of more subtle rules that mini metro follows that are not the more obvious ones.
For example, when creating a new line from a station on an existing line, and connecting it to a different station on the existing line, I can’t seem to accurately predict who it’ll take.
Sometimes it’ll take destination station passengers, sometimes it’ll take a mix of passengers matching stations on the existing line - leaving destination station passengers behind.
Does it matter which stations are closest to passengers, or which way trains are going, or maybe if there’s a train coming on the existing line will that affect it?
Also, is it true that only one train can be at a station at a time?
I had a train pick up only one teardrop passenger when the destination station was the teardrop shape and the source station had 6+ teardrop passengers waiting (among a mix). Another train was also at, or close to the station going a longer route to the teardrop station, and that had a carriage, but it left the station full, with a mix of passengers, leaving 5 teardrop passengers waiting. So my direct train just picked up one and left 5!
I don’t think these are bugs, I just think they’re more subtle algorithmic rules that mini metro follows in certain situations and I’d love to see a list of them somewhere!
