Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

You'll see the performance degradation in scenarios where the entrance or exit are placed diagonally relative to each other, because trains that could have pathed around the outer edge of the rectangle between both points will attempt to path diagonally instead; and therefore there is more risk tha...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

If you have a certain amount of trains and in a certainsection of the network a small intersection is no longer sufficient, is it better to replace small intersections with big ones, or to decentralize traffic by adding alternative routes and avoiding base designs with chokepoints that need huge in...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

jumping on the idea, in this particular case, size is not only equivalent to footprint, but also ressources/ amount of rails/rail density. Those other types of ranking, for example thoughput per iron ore, could be meaningful in some cases where ressources are scarce, or when you want to go fast. Sa...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

I just thought, we need new metric: throughput/chunk. Some crosses have outstanding throughput, but hell, they are HUGE :roll: That is an interesting idea. I like compact builds, so I'm inclined to include something like this, but I don't think it's possible to do it in a meaningful way. Like when ...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

First off, a big thanks to everyone for the tweaks in v4.4, I think it's great! There was some weird behavior in one of my intersections that this patch impacted greatly. ... Those are indeed some interesting observations. I agree that the rate of incoming trains isn't particularly realistic, that ...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Adding my 5 leaf clover RHD-LHD 4 way - just because I do not think I have seen this listed anywhere. 5-LeafClover.png 0eNqlnU1vnTcOhf9KcNdO8epbyrZddNHVbAfFwEnvtAYcJ3CczgRF/vvYydi+viZ9D58undhHfClSlMgj6q/d28vP+4/XF1c3uzd/7S7efbj6tHvzz792ny5+vzq/vPu3my8f97s3u4ub/fvd2e7q/P3dT9fnF5e7r2e7i6vf9v/dvUlffz3...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Considering the original post asks to notify about errors in this thread I've looked through it to help out... Yep, score = ((set1+set2+set3)/3) * (2/lanes) is the correct formula and it now also says so in the description. - Irregular power pole usage: We don't really have strict rules for include...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Had this interesting 4-way junction where there is a small bidirectional part. Got the following results from testing it once: 1: 53, 2: 39, 3: 47, s: 46. I call it the Celtic Nope, but I don't even know if this is similar enough to the Celtic Knot. 0eNrFXNtuIzcM/ZVinp2FKIm65LXv/YFiUeQyyBrIOoHjLLoI...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Do you have the LHD version as well? I'll test and add this one I asked Bocian to convert it to LHD and he did, because he's a swell guy 0eNqtnU1vXbeSRf9KQ2PHOPwmPe5BD3reg0bQcBIhESDLhuM8dBD4v/eVovthi9Rd66QH7wGW7J19imSRrNpV/Ovmp/s/bj99vnv4cvPur5u7nz8+/H7z7r//uvn97teH9/ePP/vy56fbm3c3d19uP9y8uXl4/+HxT...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Good stuff guys! It's really heartening to see this carried on! There is so much spirit of invention in this community that I have no doubt this this thread will generate a lot of discussions/innovation, even my old thread had a lot of activity long after I dropped off (thank you to everyone who pa...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Filtering the list is currently impossible. I would love to make this possible and then just have one big list for all designs, but I did not find a way to do it in a forum post. Put each entry into a new reply, then we can use the forum search. :D Simple, yet elegant. I'll make sure to remember th...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Checking the other intersections. It's only a slightly tighter version of this https://factoriobin.com/post/01B6XBlB So it's an improvment but slight. This is correct ! i think there was a misunderstanding, i wanted to say that your version, the more compact, is missing 4 chain signal on the websit...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Thank you for making this, the tester works wonders and is easy to use as of 4.2.1. 4 ways, 2 lanes, 2-4 trains, LHD, single buffered intersection. I believe the design might exist under the name "Turbine" even though I happened to make it naturally, but I didn't see it online yet. I use ...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Thank you for your effort! This thread was really needed. One note, Compressed Multicross can, I think, be tested with unsafe output. Even though the signals on the output lanes are placed closer than train length apart there are no chain signals there. Additional safe output would only be needed i...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

I cannot design a junction that's better - so instead, I've made something incredibly cursed.

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Hey, nice intersection! The synchronized crossings are mesmerizing.
Do you want to have it added to the post? If yes, which version? V2 obviously performs better, but I also like the simplicity of the original.
