[boskid][1.1.56] Train Visualisation doesn't work after a curve track piece

Post by studix2002 »

the train visualisation works when you hold an inserter beside the track, near the station as shown below.

when you go past the first curve track, the visualisation stops working as shown below.

P.S please make train stop names on by default when blueprinting :)

We don't support curved stations.

I beg to differ...

the visualisation has worked on previous versions as I have made numerous builds with curved stations as a UPS saving on inserters as shown in the below photo:

this particular build is for robot frames, all the pre requisites are delivered by train and the unload/load process is completed with only 3 inserters per machine.

also the visualisation works for the full curved station as long as you stay close to the station...running 8-32-8 trains however, makes this impossible as they are wider than the screen.

Also, the game title screen disagrees:

Ok. This was kind of annoying to implement because there are multiple starting points so i wanted to avoid doing a full search from each rail near cursor so i had to do some extra tricks to make this to not be slow. It is now fixed for 1.1.58.
