Re: Send train to station ID using combinator signal

I might not be entirely sane since I have been fiddling with combinator control of trains for years, but this is really driving me crazy. I have used mods to make this happen before, as well as other peoples train control systems that required mods. I dont mind mods. But I want the things I build t...

Re: Train station priority!

they plan to implement temporary stations so you can hijack any train and press on map to have the train drive you there. It's not really planning any more, as it's in the experimental 0.17 since its release in ... February ? Ok, I missed that. Makes even less sense. In my mind it should be easier ...

Re: Train station priority!

The more people that support it the higher the chance that they might listen: Oh, you sweet, sweet optimist. Makes no sense though, I mean. Everything can be automated except trains that are stuck in a horribly half automated state. Especially after reading through that they plan to implement tempo...

Re: Train station priority!

It would be nice if instead of roundtrip mode (visiting all stations in a fixed order) there was a way to set priority on a train station through the circuit network, allowing you to broadcast to trains with this station as a stop to prefer it over stops with a lower priority, or to skip certain st...

Re: Friday Facts #231 - Belt compression & Crash log uploading

While all this is cool, when are you going to give me the ability to send a train directly to a station ID? :)
Currently trains have unique IDs, giving it to stations and allowing trains to be sent to station ID regardless of schedule using combinators would open up a world of possibilities :)

Re: Friday Facts #226 - New mod portal & other news

Bots vs belts?! What about trains vs everything?
We need a way to send a train to a station directly via the circuit network (unique station ID) without using mods and adding it to a schedule :p

Re: Dynamic high throughput train deliveries

Hey, nice to hear form u, welcome back to your desert planet xD well biters welcome you for sure.

Re: Dynamic high throughput train deliveries

Sorry for the late response, I have been away on vacation in the sun a bit. I have also run into issues with my communications protocol that might force me to make major changes unless I can work it out. The whole point of the system here is for it to be modular and expandable. This is to ensure its...

Dynamic high throughput train deliveries

This is as much to tell you what Im building as it is to get some help since I am far from an expert on this. I have used Siggboys system quite extensively and after messing around with it I now want to build my own system with slightly different design criteria. Goals The main goal is for this syst...

Re: yet another smart train System & Factory (Img heavy)

In a project you have requirements, in your case is smart system and high throughput. In factorio regarding programming anything is possible but usually you'll have to get to a compromise where the system complexity is reasonable for the purpose. I think the main problem of the distributed system i...

Re: yet another smart train System & Factory (Img heavy)

Building a normal non smart train network is no fun, so no, I wont do that. Also once fleshed out this is way more time efficient. Even with the old Siggboy setup I could plop down a mining setup or a new requester station very fast. This is needed when you grow big to ensure you dont spend 100% of ...

Re: yet another smart train System & Factory (Img heavy)

Hi again, what I meant in the Smart trains thread is that any system that loops through a station list etc. will have a very limited maximum throughput since you can only loop through so many stations per second. A very large system where you have hundres of stations might have to match and dispatch...

Re: [MOD 0.15] SmartTrains 2.0.0

Is it possitble to remove the train routes completely and just send the train to a station number? As in a train only has one station in the schedule (the depot) and gets sent to whatever station number is sent over the circuit network? The train would add the station to the schedule go there and w...
