[kovarex] [0.16.36] unable to place signals in curve endings

Post by Blacky007 » Fri Mar 30, 2018 3:35 pm

I was viewing Yoshi at his twitch channel Y0sh1TV and they had problems with placeing signals at the end of a curve

same parts of the railway was placed with blueprints - maybe there is somthing wrong with signal positions after placeing the blueprint.

I rebuild it on my own map - and found the error.

1. build this setting as 2 way connection without signals
2. place the right bottom signal on the right place out of the 3 possible
3. the signal at the curve exit is blocked now without any reason.

the hole bug has to do with one way signals that are comming together in a two waysignal section of the track.

Can you please provide a save file that shows the problem?
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

I will make a blueprint tomorrow that simply shows the bug/problem
and add it here

EDIT:
https://pastebin.com/55EbrSGB

in V1 and V2 you have 3 signal positions on the straight railsegment
on V3 you have only 2 positions - but if you place it on the third position from the other 2 with constrution mode the signal works perfectly
the bug is that on rails with different direction signals the third signal position is missing to place the signal.

[0.16.36] Rail signal placing strange behaviour..

Post by Bokkie » Mon Apr 09, 2018 9:41 pm

I've searched but didn't find anything discribing the strange behaviour I encountered.

I was playing with T-junctions and signals, made a T-junction that I like (and works).
When I remake the T-junction I couldn't place the signals like the first one, until I place a signal 2 steps before the one I want to place.

It's hard to explain, so I made some screenshots describing the behaviour.
