Default TimeTables and States


I am having a problem with the time tables and defining the state I want the downobject to be in.
In the image, you can see that in the time table options, the only state proposed is Idle. Since I need the transporter to be in "on Break" and in "change over", I put the number corresponding to those states in the table.
If I create other states, they don't appear in this option either. How can I work around this?

Then, when running the model, the statistics in the pie chart appear as state31 and state35 whereas in the dashboard they are fine. This is not so critical because the numbers are ok, but it would be more convenient for the states to appear correctly.

Thank you very much!

Some of the states are no longer used in version 6.0. You can still set the states and use them, they just don't show up in the tree.

As for getting the State Pie Chart on your transporter to display properly, you can manually edit the names of states 31 and 35 in the tree.

I'm not sure how to get the drop down menu to update states.
