  • c - departure time
  • l1,l2 - number of passengers who get off an on the bus (the accurate number is randomly chosen by the simulator between 50% and 150% the values selected here)
  • If you wish all passengers to leave the bus, type -1,0 as the numbers l1,l2.
    RZ p,c,l1,l2 Stop on request
  • p,c,l1,l2 - see RS
  • On this type of stop, when some passengers want to leave the bus, a 'var.wav' sound from the bus model folder is played, about 30 meters before the bus stop.
    RE - Closes a schedule block

    • 9,0 - V direction
  • t - text
  • Dx i Display type:
  • x - realign in the range 1-5 (D1 set type for K1,K2 lines, D2 for K3,K4 etc.)
  • i - type of display: 1-4 (single line, double line, double line - first line bigger, double line - second line bigger)
  • PS - Tag not used, probably was written to insert a fuel station. Using this tag causes an error!
    Parameters such as the ST.
    Tags marked red can be used both in ms1 and rs1 files, the others only in MS1 files.
