TopoEditor: Routes

  • All routes for a model can be created by the menu-entry in the Tools menu. All missing valid routes in this model will be created. Existing routes will not be changed
  • To create routes for a selection only, select the desired signals and use the inspector:
  • If one signal is selected when clicking the R button in the inspector, all missing valid routes that start or end at the selected signal will be created. Existing routes will not be changed.
  • In this case, only one route per signal-pair can be created.
  • Routes are only created ("valid") between signals with the same system. Signals with the change-value "removed" will not be used for routes.
  • As a special case, when selecting two signals prior to clicking the R button in the inspector, only the routes between these two signals are created. Existing routes will not be changed, but if a route already exists, a new additional one will still be created. This case also works for signals of different systems or "removed" signals.
  • If two signals can be connected via differenct path, one route for each path will be created (with the same name).
  • The inspector of a signal shows all the routes that start or end at this signal. Click one of the routes to select it and change its settings.
  • If the path of a route is broken (i.e. after changing the topology) it can be fixed using R.

  • All these references can be chosen in the inspector by picker or list.
  • Approach Point: Allowed elements: Balise / Signal / TrackCircuitBorder / TrainDetector / TopoPoint / EdgePoint
    The maximum distance between approach point and entry signal is 2000m. Only elements in these range can be chosen.
  • Edge Points: (Expert Mode) For each traversed topoElement, the edgePoint that determines the ongoing path is stored. The path of a route can be changed/corrected by choosing different edgePoints or using the repair-function.
  • Overlap Eps: same principle as Edge Points.
  • Overlap End Point: Allowed elements: Balise / Signal / TrackCircuitBorder / TrainDetector / TopoPoint / EdgePoint
    The maximum distance between exit signal and overlap end point is 1500m. Only elements in these range can be chosen.
  • Release Trigger: Allowed elements: TrackCircuitBorder / TrainDetector / CrossSection
    The release trigger is situated on the route.
  • Partial Release Point: Allowed elements: TrackCircuitBorder / TrainDetector
    Entry and exit signal must not be chosen as partial release points. If no partial release point is chosen, the route is released as whole.
