Cornish_dawg, there's no native support for controllers yet, but you can use one with the help of an external program like joy2key. There's a guide for setting this up in the guides section of the community hub.

That's true Adam, in real world it's a multi-layer problem with various mathematical solutions at each level. Luckily you don't need to be aware of the problems or the solutions to use the editor - just define some traffic and let the signalling and driving A.I. handle the actual operation.

The recent timetable troubles in the UK made me googlebing the subject. In my tiny brain, this looked like a rather 'trivial mathematical problem". But then I watched the sub-comittee hearing and read some academic papers of mathematical models. Turns out - in real life - the "railway scheduling problem" is a popular scientific math problem - and then add the politics of different private companies, having to 'work together' AND with the government.

Releasing a "Timetable Editor" in a video game - even without those extra layers of (absurd) complexity - is much appreciated. :)
