Sorry if i've misunderstood, but presumably if Rugby North has been submitted by your good self then the assumption is its been thoroughly tested beforehand as the rest of us do?

It would be nice to have been asked about doing TTs for 8th April 2015. I have countless hours invested in developing this data set.

Having looked through the Rugby North TT in the save you posted the other week, it is not compatible with Staffordshire

There is an official set in development, Timetables for existing sims have to come after new development work.

The file submission system is for tested user contributed files

So are you saying that nobody else should write a timetable for that date without your involvement?

To be fair to Elltrain he wasn’t to immediately know that a timetable of that date was being written and not necessarily by you. I have looked through the Forthcoming timetable topics back to November 2020 and this sim and date were not discussed. Similarly the Wiki for Rugby sims does not show a 2015 timetable being available. The page for discussion of the Rugby simulation timetables also shows nothing. I would think that in his defence he would thought he was filling a gap of the usual timetables which form part of the sim.
To be fair I sympathise with you as this has happened to me before and it was probably down to me for not posting what I was doing but there in lies a problem in knowing where to post that everyone knows what is happening with timetable writing and who is doing it but would that then reveal which new sims were going to be forth coming.

I apologise Meld for any confusion and I'll let you do the making I wasn't aware one was being produced, I tested mine with Staffordshire I mistyped "testing" on the first post as I just submitted one, and I don't do it often and my brain appears to have fallen asleep while typing.

apologies for overlapping all, you are correct I should have asked.

Feel free to delete/lock this thread etc as Meld is going to be miles better at writing a 2015 TT than I ever will

I think it's a case of just being aware that, the dates of timetables that are usually bundled with the sims on release or updates, are written in house so to speak and that timetables for those dates will always be provided for each new sim, whether on its initial release or at a later stage.

Regardless of whether they are written in house, by them (tt of the same date) being written by the same author or team of writers also ensures that they are all compatible and chainable with each other, which of course makes it a lot easier for the end user when simming / playing.

No one is saying you can't write your own tt's, but it is just an idea to check the sim you are writing for and neighbouring ones that there isn't a clash of dates and if there is perhaps drop a message to any of the writers involved, to see what their intentions are. They might not have the intention of writing for sim x, but if you then use the same UIDs etc for sim x then they could potentially chain together etc
