Re: [kovarex] [0.17.3] Train leaves disabled station

I wasn't sure whether it is a feature or a bug, but after reading through, the decision is to revert it to the 0.16 behaviour: - Disabling station with train waiting in it doesn't force the train to departure anymore so it works as it worked in 0.16. It looked like a useful change for 0.17, but we ...

Re: Friday Facts #224 - Bots versus belts

People, including me, like the game as it is, so maybe it does not need a radical change. On the other hand, maybe some changes would make it more fun. Maybe make a poll? Yet an other suggestion to reduce the power of bots. 1) make the logistic area tiny, 5x5. 2) allow the bots only to move items wi...

Re: Control Train Pathfinder (Passthru stations, Add Penalty, Control Refueling)

Another suggestion of this kind. A rather simple one. Make a train skip the stations to which it has no path. This will allow you to place a train in a position from which it can not reach some stations (dead end with one station to get the train back out of it) and skip some of the stations. Balanc...

Re: [Hanziq] [15.19] Trains collide reproducibly on specific layout

i remember that crashing trains with out proper signaling was actually called a feature of this game, therefore not a bug. if the devs decide to change this functionality then true trains should never crash with crazy signaling. This is surprising to me. Under which conditions can a train enter a b...

Re: [Hanziq] [15.19] Trains collide reproducibly on specific layout

Greeting Philip, the signaling is indeed absurd in the given example. It is not meant for any practical purpose, it is only meant to give a small reproducible example. However, improper signaling on its own can never lead to collisions between trains. Let me elaborate why. Two trains can only collid...

Re: [0.15.18] Loop causing collision between two trains

I think this may be related to what happens here: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=48209 . A train leaves a block (in your case the intersection) that it will enter again, without enough space to break in between. This means that when it leaves the block, it should still have the ...

Re: [0.15] Trains with no enabled train station stutter

Hi mrvn, I find the behaviour you expect from the train very reasonable, but I doubt that this is the designed behaviour. I do think the following is true: if you disable the station a train is headed to, it will (almost?) immediately recompute its path. Thus it will no longer (necessarily) honour a...

Re: [0.15.13] Can only open chests from map with bullets in hand

The chest has to be in your physical reach. To reproduce: 1. place a chest next to yourself 2. go to map view (press m) 3. Narcissistically zoom in on yourself. 4. Make sure you're not holding anything 5. Press (left mouse button) the chest (it should have a yellow frame when your mouse hovers over ...

Re: Trains with no enabled train station stutter

Hi Xgkkp, It's not as simple as "happens when all stations are disabled" - I set up an SR latch (below) so that the station disables when the T signal is set but doesn't re-enable until the train has actually left. The train doesn't even try to start moving once , which seems to conflict w...

Re: Circuits for Supply and Construction Trains

If it is acceptable to you to have some miners (and other construction material) lying around you could hook up you storage chest to a circuit and interpret the fact that you have 0 miners as '-10 miners'. Your system will deliver 10 miners and if they are all used, it will request an other 10. So n...

Re: Trains are stuck

This is not a bug. Train 1 wants to enter the block that is occupied by train 2 and vice versa. Thus neither can leave.

Re: Train wrongfully gives up block reservation

Wait a bit at the station and get in to the train that will soon arrive. Get in to the first train that arrives. This is the train with coal, so be prepared for a bumpy ride ;)

If you want to, you can also run north and still be in time to get in to the train with copper.

[kovarex] [15.19] Trains collide reproducibly on specific layout

Hi there. I have a peculiar train collision. I have not changed the signals recently and I'm not driving manually, so this probably should not happen. One train with coal has reserved a path through the waiting bay. It is going almost at full speed. vlcsnap-2017-05-21-17h14m21s785.png vlcsnap-2017-0...

Re: [0.15.9 & 10] Train stops at wrong signal (circuits)

This gets a bit problematic as braking distance is pretty arbitrary, as mentioned above. If we go by what the debug option called show-train-braking-distance gives, and how trains usually respond to circuit closed signals, then it is the same distance as where a train reserves a block, at least &qu...

Re: [0.15.9 & 10] Train stops at wrong signal (circuits)

I agree with chrisgbk. However, I have one additional remark: If a reserved signal is closed by circuit the train should stop there, if and only if it still has enough time to break before the signal . This is why the behavior is probably correct in both cases: - If D is present, then the train is a...

Re: Trains with no enabled train station stutter

This has to be 15.11, nothing else supports the 'T' signal. This is what I think is of the situation, although I'm might be wrong because I have incomplete information. 1. Your train decides to leave. 2. The T signal goes to 0. 3. The Station is enabled. 4. The train moved a tiny bit forward, yet so...
