added option --link-output<FILE> for recording the approach of vehicles at
junctions. This option addresses the need of developers when
investigating junction control.
added new abstract vehicle classes "custom1" and "custom2" for
user defined purposes.
drivers on a minor road now grow impatient while waiting for a
gap in the traffic. After a while they will drive even if it
means that another car has to slow down to accommodate them (as
before, they will only drive if it is safe to do so).
added vType attribute impatience which affects the
willingness of drivers to cut into traffic even if it forces
other drives to brake.
added option --fcd-output.signals<BOOL> for including a vehicles signal state in the
output (brake lights etc.)
implemented "expected" attribute for stops, which expects IDs of
people that have to enter the vehicle to allow the vehicle to
leave the stop. Should be used with "triggered='true'" (would
not work otherwise). Thanks to Shubham Jain for pointing out the
wrong description of the possibilities in
added options for saving and loading simulation states.
Simulation states can be saved at predetermined times and then loaded to initialize a new
simulation (this also requires loading the network and routes of the
original simulation). When the filename for saving ends with .sbx
the file will be saved in a binary format instead of xml.
option --sloppy-insert<BOOL> is marked deprecated because the behavior is now the
default, use --eager-insert<BOOL> to get the old behavior
vehicle route output for persons now includes complete plans
it is now possible to toggle the simulation time display between
'seconds' and 'hour-minute-seconds' by clicking on the
'Time'-button next to the time display. The state of this
setting persists across GUI sessions.
it is now possible to toggle between alternate delay values by
clicking on the 'Delay'-button next to the delay dial. Clicking
causes the current delay value to be saved as the alternative
value. The alternative delay value persists across GUI sessions.
parking vehicles are now being drawn (at the side of the road)
the vehicle parameter table now contains information about the
status of stopped vehicles
vehicles can now be colored by their selection state
added option for selecting a vehicles foes at the next junction
to the vehicle popup menu (useful when coloring by selecting)
brake lights will no longer be triggered when the route ends
unless the vehicle actually has to slow down.
now providing separate options for customizing the visualization
when using the option --no-internal-links the edge lengths are now increased to
compensate for the missing internal links. Thus, route lengths
will correspond better to physical distances and roundabouts are
less prone to congestions.
added option --keep-edges.in-geo-boundary which works similar to option --keep-edges.in-boundary but uses geodetic
coordinates instead of cartesian.
added new node type priority_stop. This works similar to type
priority but minor links now require a stop
added option --ignore-errors.edge-type for ignoring unknown edge types during loading.
This happens frequently when dealing with plain xml files based
on OSM data.
now parsing the OSM-Attribute "tracks" to determine whether a
railway element is unidirectional or bidirectional.
added option --osm.railway.oneway-default<BOOL> for setting the default behavior when importing
railways without "tracks" attribute. The appropriate value
depends on the mapping style of the regional OSM comunity.
added option --geometry.max-angle<FLOAT> which warns about sharp turns on an edge. This is
enabled by default for turns above 99 Degrees.
added option --geometry.min-radius<FLOAT> which warns about sharp turns at the start and end
of an edge. This is enabled by default for radii below 9 meters
added option --geometry.min-radius.fix<BOOL> which prunes geometry to avoid sharp turns at the
start and end of an edge. This is disabled by default.
added option --check-lane-foes.all<BOOL> (default=false) for lifting junction restrictions
for vehicles which exit on different lanes of the same edge
without crossing paths. This improves junction throughput in
many cases but is a more aggressive interpretation of german
added option --check-lane-foes.roundabout<BOOL> (default=true) for lifting some junction
restrictions at roundabouts. This conforms to the typical layout
of roundabouts where restrictions on lane-changing allow such
added optional flags for cmd stop (0x12) to set the parking and
added command stop state (id 0xb5) for retrieving the
stopped,parking and triggered status
added command resume (0x19) for resuming from the current stop
reduced verbosity on connection close (no more good byes)
The elements <vehicle>, <flow> and <vType> now
support child elements of the form <param key="myKey"
value="myValue/>. These can be used when implementing custom
code for messaging functionality removed (was disabled by
