The Traffic Screensaver is a screensaver similar in principle to the MM-saver. It is freeware and, except for occasional releases on CD-ROMs in special editions of railway journals, is only available for download. However, due to the immense number of vehicles that the full version of Traffic contains - most ever published, freely available vehicle drawings on a scale of 1 pixel = 10 cm are included in Traffic - the download can be a time-consuming affair.
The author of the Traffic Screensaver is Zoltán Szabó.
In the Vehicle List , vehicle and other graphics are collected, listed, and categorized, which makes access easier. It can contain both individual image files as well as images from libraries; the latter can only be selected via vehicle lists.
The Fahrplan is a text file in which a scripting language is used to define vehicle movements. Here the user can compile his own train compositions and let them go. The selection of trains via a graphical user interface using mouse control as in MM-saver does not work in traffic, mainly because it is impossible to understand the functionality and flexibility of traffic (eg random train compilation) certain user preferences) via such a user interface. For this it is possible to theoretically write any number of timetables and to change the vehicle selection and behavior of the schooner completely by loading another timetable. In timetables, both entries from a vehicle list and individual image files can be used; Theoretically, the composition of a train of individual vehicle images and its use in traffic is even easier thanks to Drag & Drop than in the MM schooner.
