Default Arrival schedule Source

Hi,
I just realized that that the arrival schedule of the source is not working correctly. It shows the same behavior in FS 4.32 and in 4.5BETA.
Attached is a 4.5 BETA modell.
2 arrivals each 50 pcs. => first at 510 s the second at 1020, repeat schedule set.
:: result
arrival 1: 510 s => 50pcs.
arrival 2: 1020 s => 50 pcs.
arrival 3: 1020 s => 50 pcs........??

you can avoid this by setting a third arrival at time 0 with a quantity of 0...

Nico,

Sorry to say but this is the standard behaviour and is explained in the help file about the arrival schedule. There it is also explained why it is implemented this way.

Hi Steven,
sorry for the useless entry, I did not read that.(I guess I lost a bit of faith in manuals)...

Next time I read the manual first, I promise .....

Hi Nico,

Yeah I mostly don't read manuals either, but to the defence of Flexsim, I must say that the manual is improving with every new release and even I, as an experienced user, keep finding more and more information in there. For instance there are now parts in there about building user libraries and about GUI's and they contain a lot of information.

So generally speaking I would urge every user to use and read the manual. If you can't find something in there or you find something unlogical, please report it to Flexsim, I'm sure they appreciate the feedback and will improve it.

Steven
