I agree with that. I don't understand this unlock door button on the MG2 trains

The idea of the unlock button is that a passenger can press it in order to open the door. This way, the doors aren't unnecessary opened and the passengers inside aren't freezing. To see the actual use of this button, passengers have to be implemented. (but I don't think that stands high on Michiel's priority list)

Yes indeed. @Thanim1254: Unlike most metro systems, in Rotterdam passengers are given the option to open (and on MG2 and SG2 even close) the doors manually. The image below shows a door controller (for passengers) of an MG2:

The blue button is for closing and the yellow one below for opening. These controllers do only respond if the doors are unlocked by the driver and can be found on all stocks in the simulator but MG2. These are still to be added to the visual models of the MG2 ;)

I know what's it for but when I double click the button, it won't open. Has it been implemented into the game?

For example: you are doing the HSM activity and you are non stop from SVC to STD. If there was speed set, you could set the speed to 80kph and then just leave it there for the train to control.

Aren't you forgetting that this is a simulator? ;)
