A new release of the .exe and .dll pack is available here, to be inserted in x.3968
29/10/17: new pack version available
The weather randomization has been added. The starting weather is randomized, and weather changes in a random way during activity. Season is not changed. The change rate depends from the randomization level selected.
Moreover now waiting point and station departure delays depend also from randomization level selected.
This pack version is considered to be a beta version.

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for adding this feature.

How do I get it to work?

Simply go to the experimental options and select an Activity Randomization Level greater than 0.

There was a conceptual error about station stop departure time in previous patch. This has now been corrected, and here is the new patch pack for x.3967.
Station stop departure time delay is now generated by a random increase in passenger numbers in platform.
31/10/17: new patch pack available

Carlo,

Can we not separate some of the random features? The code change for randomness for all features combined has 3 different levels. I have not tested these features to know what these levels mean. But I think it is pretty clear that random weather should be separate from engine failures etc. Also the severity of changes should have some individual user control, like it is done in flight simulators. Can some of these random features be included for explorer mode?

I really like the random weather change feature! I had some other plans to implement this with another external scripting program, which I might put on hold for now.

Ciao,
Steve

Thanks for having tried it and for appreciation.
As a general rule I don't like multiplying options in the menu. However I agree that weather randomization is different than activity flow randomization, so I think I'll separate them. The severity of changes is under control of the randomization level.
Instead I don't have the intention to spend time on explorer mode.

Here an updated randomization pack for x.3972. Activity flow randomization and activity weather randomization can now be set separately.

1/11/17: One file was missing in the pack, new release available

Hi Carlo,
I've downloaded X3972 from James's site and applied your RandomizedActivities_rev3.zip.
But I cannot see those new settings in the Experimental tab :-(
What am I doing wrong?

Anyway -- many thanks for this new feature!

Regards,
Mirek

Carlo,

I will give this a try. Thank you for considering/implementing a separate control for weather changes!

Ciao,
Steve
