This feature has been added. It is not the same information; there are two pieces of information being displayed.
Humps may or may not have all defined sorts assigned to them, and the choices made by the hump may not match the choices made by the color filters. The "humped as" information tells you what choice the hump made so that you are able to manage the sort assignments. Otherwise there can be unexplained behavior. Displaying both pieces of information is also very useful for avoiding confusion as you make edits to sorts and track assignments.
Ok. I didn't see any mention of this new feature in the version notes so I thought maybe it was a glitch from the way it just duplicates what I already know.
So if I have a sort not assigned to a track then it seems to me the only other possibility for it will be to end up in the "others" track. Not sure I understand how I can get a third option?
Even if I have some tracks set up for multiple sorts, if that sort is assigned to any track won't it still show up as the repetitive "humped as" note?
It could be that this feature might be more useful at larger hump yards and I'm not able to visualize what you are talking about because I'm too set in my ways of how I run Norris. I'm also skeptical to see how this feature can make things easier for me rather than turning into more micro-managing the 9 key. Right now if I have a sort not assigned to a track (and I try not to have too many of those) that sort goes into my "others" track. When that fills up then I either trim it out or run it back through the hump, assigning the sort(s) to a track that has room or maybe a has a different sort for the same train. Without playing around with it, it seems the only thing I will see differently on mouseover is if that sort ends up in the "others" track.
Another possibility is that you might have multiple sort sets defined, not all set in the hump, and not currently displayed. Another might be if you temporarily un-assign "Others" out of the hump bowl because you need the space, but then forget you did that (I have done this).
There are a lot of reasons that there can be apparent conflicts between what the hump is doing and what the color filters display, now that the filtering and humping are both more flexible. I added this feature because I was sometimes having problems understanding hump behavior.
If you are using the hump and color filters in the simplest way, you will not need this information. However, when you do need it, you can't get it any other way. I hope the "extra" info isn't to much of a burden.
