Action Points

Action points is what triggers an event in a model in Discrete Events mode. They are similar to sensors in Physics mode.

When you build a model in Discrete Events mode you build it as a route the loads will follow. If you then want to have a certain event happen somewhere along the route, you insert an action point. You do this by right clicking on you track or conveyor and choosing ‘insert actionpoint’:

The action point shows up as a small X in the middle of your track. If you click the action point, you can see its properties in the properties window. From here you can change the name of the action point, where on the track it is placed, what happens when a load hits it and the default destination of any load that hits the action point. You can use this feature to send a load from one specific action point to another specified action point.
