 +  * **Blockrate and Classes** ​
 +
 +\\
 +\\
 +===== Example for using blockrates, classes =====
 +\\
 +
 +For this example how to use blockrates, classes and variables and a combination of them, we take a look at the following plan (see pic below): \\
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​variable-plan-en.png?​1000}}\\
 +\\
 +As you see we have two trains, lok1 with adress 1 and lok2 with adress 2.\\
 +We have two startblocks called start1 and start2, they lead over switches to the blocks called up1 and up2 or to the blocks called down1 and down2.\\
 +The direction is only to the right.\\
 +\\
 +So when we start now the automatic and start all trains, the change is 50:50 weather a train goes to the upper road (via block up1) or to the down road (via block down1).\\
 +(If both blocks up1 and down1 are free and not occupied by another train or closed).\\
 +\\
 +And now we want to change this change with blockrates.\\
 +\\
 +\\
 +==== Using blockrates ====
 +\\
 +We go now in the properties of block up1 and change the random rate to 8 (see pic below):
 +
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​variable-plan-en-rate.png?​600}}\\
 +\\
 +We do the same with the block down1, but here we set the random rate to 2!\\
 +\\
 +When we start now over again, we will see, that a train in average choose in 8 of 10 cases the upper road and in 2 of 10 cases the down road!\\
 +\\
 +But now we want more.\\
 +The goal is now, that train lok1 always take the upper road (via block up1), but train lok2 shall use in average in 8 cases up1 and in 2 cases down1.\\
 +So how we can reach this goal? -> With classes!\\
 +\\
 +==== Using classes ====
 +\\
 +We go in the train database and set for lok1 under properties-details the class '​lok1'​ (see pic below):\\
 +
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​variable-plan-en-lokdb-class.png?​600}}\\
 +\\
 +We do now the same for lok2, but lok2 get the class '​lok2'​!\\
 +\\
 +\\
 +Now we set for block up1 the class: lok1,lok2 (under properties-permissions - see pic below):\\
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​variable-plan-en-block-class.png?​600}}\\
 +\\
 +For the block down1 we set the class only to lok2!\\
 +\\
 +The result:\\
 +lok1 can now only choose the upper road (via block up1), because this is the only block, where the class lok1 is allowed!\\
 +lok2 will choose in average of 8 cases block up1 and in 2 cases block down1, because both blocks have the class lok2 and the blockrates are 8 to 2!\\
 +\\
 +\\
 +==== Changing classes with actions ====
 +\\
 +lok1 has as you see in the picture above the class '​lok1'​\\
 +To change this we need a new action (In this example we want to set the lok class to xy and xyz):\\
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​action-class-en.png?​360}}\\
 +\\
 +Then we can call this action. The action will be done by every lok if we set no conditions in the conditions tab.\\
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​action-class-set-en.png?​360}}\\
 +\\
 +The result is, that the lok has now the new classes xy and xyz:\\
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​action-class-set-en.png?​360}}\\
 +\\
 +\\
 +To change the block class, do it the same way:\\
 +\\
 +{{:​variable:​action-block-class-en.png?​360}}\\
 +{{:​variable:​block-newclass-en.png?​360}}
