Re: [1.1.57] Yellow train signal cannot be closed with circuits

4. If no, or if the initial search fails, perform a final path search with the existing path treated as available, per the existing behavior. That would mean every repath has to check for circuit-controlled signals within their braking distance, and trains that path through such signals could trigg...

Re: [1.1.57] Yellow train signal cannot be closed with circuits

Or train accelerators, where you loop a train around until it reaches full speed before sending it off into ... wherever. Biter territory, a high-speed "freeway" track, etc. Without the ability to reroute a train by closing a yellow signal, both of those are either outright impossible, or...

Re: [1.1.57] Yellow train signal cannot be closed with circuits

Yeah, if the train has no other option than to continue - then it should definitely continue, and the signal shouldn't close. It's rerouting if it can that's important. There's a bunch of cool stuff you can only do if you can close yellow signals. Like multi-step train crossings, where traffic is di...

Re: [1.1.57] Yellow train signal cannot be closed with circuits

Thank you for your response! That was really fast. The desired behavior is only different from the existing behavior when there is a potential alternate path for the train. Train crossings would not be affected unless the incoming train has another path around it. In that case they would be improved...

Yellow train signal cannot be closed with circuits

was moved from bugs to suggestions by boskid β€” ssilk Factorio version: 1.1.57 Mods: None You cannot close yellow train signals with the circuit network. (They "lock" as yellow until the train which reserved them has passed). This is the intended behavior. However, it is inconsistent with ...
