Re: Please extend the TrainScheduleRecord to allow changes in direction

Temp stops are a workaround for targeting train stops by unit_number rather than ambiguous name.
Instead of trying to fix the workaround, I'd rather have the ability to tell the scheduler to go to a specific stop regardless of name.

Re: Why do temporary stops have a condition?

Without wait condition trains will overshoot and path to a wrong stop when there's multiple stops with the same name.

Re: [1.16.6] Trains not stopping at destination stations

Thanks for the save.
Seems like without time = 0 on temp stops trains no longer break for the temp stop, resulting in them overshooting the real stop and path to another one.

Fixed in next release.

Re: Threshold and Stack Threshold

There might be one problem with this. Not with having stack and non-stack threshold. But with using this to request/provide goods: It will provide goods. If you have a stop and it has more goods than requested, maybe because you send a train there manually to unload left over goods, then it will su...

I can't reproduce this bug.

Re: Please add a Cargo-Train and Fluid-Train signals

I don't really get the use case either. The artillery train is generally useful while the cargo/fluid train signals are more special cases. Probably only when you also use a mod that can assemble/disassemble trains. Generally LTN does not support trains becoming invalid from disassembling or telepor...

Re: How Does Depot Priority Work?

I am seeing this issue pop up in 1.16.3 I have two depots at the top and a requester and provider at the bottom. No matter what the two depots are set to, the closest depot is selected. https://imgur.com/hlSh7Wu The top depot was always set at 100 Priority, and I have changed the bottom one from 50...

Re: Please add a Cargo-Train and Fluid-Train signals

At the factory where you produce artillery shells you can add a train stop providing artillery trains by sending the signal to the input lamp. When a train arrives fill it up with artillery shells and send it along either by inactivity or circuit signal. Then in outposts requests an artillery train...

Re: Space Exploration Space Elevator Compatibility? (IE LTN between surfaces)

Let's talk about this when SE also automatically adds intermediate trains stops required to teleport trains between surfaces.
I certainly won't add that to LTN.

Re: Idea: Add train configuration setting to LTN stops

Sorry, not going to happen in LTN. LTN was rendered mostly obsolete with train limits becoming a base feature I'm going to keep maintaining it, but no new features will be added. Too much overhead for something only marginally more configurable than a min/max length + Network-ID It doesn't even allo...

Re: Small curiosity: What exactly is a "building store"?

It would be really nice if there were a signal_changed_event that LTN could subscribe to so it would only have to parse the signals on change. But in factorio you don't have entity specific events and a global signal_changed_event would fire every tick and be more than useless. Yes, that'd easily c...

Re: Small curiosity: What exactly is a "building store"?

I'm not sure what "filtering down from 100 items to 10" is supposed to mean. I load all the stuff available in the mall into one warehouse. The content of the warehouse is then provided. If that is 100 different items then that is 100 different items. How would you filter that down to 10?...

Re: [1.16.3] Trains dispatched to stations without temporary GPS tag, thus going to wrong provider/requesters

Only way for LTN to generate schedules without temp stops is when a stop has no rail connected. In which case pathfinding would also not find the stop and the train goes into "no path".

More likely you have a mod messing with temp stops removing LTNs temp stops.
