Lightbulb Dispatcher & Operators Suggestion

As a suggestion for the next version being able to create operators from a dispatcher would be good for quickily creating variable work forces. Simply connect the dispatcher to the required objects and specify the number of operators (also the form they take Man/Truck/Other) that will be linked to it.

(Apologies if there is a simple way of doing this already!)

You could realize this quite easy with this custom code:

// at least the creation of your operators. You might have to customize the code to really fit your needs and then it's not so simple anymore, because you would need some checks if you have already the desired number of operators and so on. But it might be a start

Code:
 
/**CS: Create additional operators*/
 
treenode current = ownerobject(c);
 
int numitems = 1; // Number you would like
 
for (int index = 0; index < numitems; index++)
{
createinstance(node("/Operator",library()),model());
objectconnect(current,last(model()));
}

Thanks for that one, now if we could just get that added to a button in the Dispatcher Properties Window or as a Standard Trigger.
