do trains wait while the ai-functions wait for return?

or in other words
does it result in any disadvantages to always use the total numbers of lines per function?

thanks in advance

Hi, good question!
The whole game is paused while you're calculating. That's the reason why you may only use a set amount of lines...

So, no, there's no disadvantage when you use the lines up.

i got another question:

how are conflicting AIs processed.

to be more specifically:

how do you process (or how is it intended) buyTrain-calls in ai.newPassenger to the same position and direction?

thanks again in advance

At random.
One AI's ai.init is run before the other's, so the one being called first gets lucky...
