As the title suggests, I find the instructions in TSW far too strict and limiting in my opinion. An issue I had yesterday is that I closed the doors 0.5 seconds too early (yes, I’m not exaggerating!) and because of this, the instruction would not complete. I closed the doors early to enable a right time departure. So what happened is that the game forced me to open and close the doors again, which made me loose around 15 seconds in doing so, just so the yellow circle could literally fill about a pixel more. This was whilst driving the Class 166 on GWE. Now these instructions are perfect for always on-time AI trains, however for player trains, it doesn’t leave room for much human error at all. The driver (player) should decide when to close the doors based on arrival time and departure time, not a pre-set timer which has no logic of real and right time departure. Especially on GWE where the default timer is set to 60 seconds, regardless of which train you are driving, station and arrival and departure time at the station. Talking of the yellow circle which fills up, it doesn’t really make much sense at all. Why is it there? It’ll always fill up at a set speed and then either say wait until (departure time) or close doors, which can cause you to be late at times as you have to wait for it to fill up. This can be quite frustrating as if you’re running late, you’re literally forced to wait for it to fill up and/or if you’re at quiet station with no passengers getting on. I suggest you remove the yellow circle loading timer and let the player depart according to their own account. As long as you depart no earlier than booked departure time, I see no issue with this and no need for a set timer.
