2/28/12 - Updated company dispatch page
I will start off with the smaller stuff:

The cargo is now listed in the information.
It is highlighted green if the driver is hauling a contract route.

Big update:

As some of you will have known, neither Jeff of myself had time or patience to improve on our mapping skills... until now

I have looked over documentation about google maps and have finally came to a point where I can implement better mapping into the game

The dispatch page now has a map which contains all of the drivers in your company who are currently in a route.

Here is a screenshot:

Normal routes have blue lines and contract routes have green lines (there is actually some green lines in that picture, but they are hidden by blue lines).
The lines get darker as more drivers use that route.
Meaning darker lines have more than one driver in that route.

There is also a button which can toggle between contract routes and all routes (that is pretty self explanatory).

Left clicking on one of the lines will highlight it.
Highlighting a line will also highlight all the users below the map which are travelling the same route (start city -> optional city -> destination city, does not include cargo).
Good for keeping track of contract runs.
You can cancel a highlight by right clicking on the same line or left clicking on another line.

Here is a screenshot of a highlighted line (notice the user is also highlighted):

Clicking on the small trucks will bring up an information box about that driver. You can see all the information in the screenshot below:

Leave questions/comments below.

Over time we hope to improve on the mapping throughout the game.

Hope this helps your company, have fun trucking.

PS. Expect the changes to be made a few minutes after this update has been posted

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
