Summary0000502: stop between start and end times
DescriptionNot sure how complicated to do.....

We have a route passing through North Kilworth Wharf.

The options on the route editor are

Stop Overnight or
Pause in the day for x hours

What we would like to do is pause between x time and y time so that the crew can get a bus.

Would work for a lunch stop - stop at location x from 1pm to 3pm.

I've thought about this, and variants, quite a lot, but have decided not to do anything.

The reason is that it would require a huge heap of additional information (like when you start travelling every day, so it can work out where you would be at any time), and a lot of options about what happens if the timing doesn't work out (what should it do if you arrive at the place at 4pm - start you three hours earlier so that you get there for 1, or make you stop overnight and all the next morning, or ...)

I think it's better to allow for a pause, and you can manually tweak the previous overnight (and any others) to get you there at what feels right to you. The intention has always been to provide a guide rather than a "you must do exactly this", and I think leaving this for you to adjust things to make it work is really closer to the spirit of the site.
