Repathing is not allowed to change direction after the train leaves a station. The devs have said before this will not be changed, for performance reasons.
While they may have said so (or some version of it) it is not true, see counterexample in the post above.

Re: How-to: Two-way rails

I reported it because it happened to me. In a vanilla game (Death World + Marathon) where (IIRC) I wasn't even at yellow science yet. Also, you don't seem to understand the issue ? Which is that the train(s) do NOT take the longer route, but get stuck instead, potentially forever. That is a pretty ...

Re: Changing zoom level in the map view (i.e. when render_mode == render_mode.chart)

I would like to second this request (or at least parts of it) for two reasons: Completeness: this parameter can be used to control the two other rendering modes, I don't really see any good reason for why it shouldn't work for the regular map if it works for the zoom-to-world-map. Hijacking the zoom...

Re: [0.14+] Infinizoom - zoom without limits

Aaaaaaand we're back to the hotkeys. As the dev responses for my first foray into binding to the scroll wheel implied, things got messy in a lot of cases. So many different things are bound to the scroll wheel, and the "zoom-in"/"zoom-out" key-binds are triggered regardless of wh...

Re: [0.14+] Infinizoom - zoom without limits

Both of these issues are, hopefully, fixed in 0.1.7. The second one is the mod actually hitting the limits of the game engine, it keeps trying to use smaller/larger values but the game won't go further. Implemented limits in either direction to prevent this breakage (turns out you can actually get &...

Re: [0.14+] Infinizoom - zoom without limits

Good news for anyone having trouble with AutoHotkey: as of version 0.1.5 this mod does not use separate key-binds, instead it replaces the normal zoom function. This means that third party software is no longer needed to make this work with the scroll wheel. Big thanks to calcwizard for the contribu...

Re: [0.14+] Infinizoom - zoom without limits

While you don't need to use AutoHotkey -or any other third party key rebinding software- it is the only way to use the scroll wheel as an input to trigger custom events, something this mod uses to change the zoom level. If you're fine using other keys to zoom, they hotkeys used by the mod are config...

[0.17.79] Train pathfinder does not account for length of final segment

While trying to wrangle the train pathfinder to create logic circuits using trains (you know, as you do) I ran in to a train always choosing the longer of two similar paths. After experimenting a bit, and taking a look at the source code, I've arrived at the conclusion that the length of the final s...

[boskid][0.17.79] Train pathfinder incorreclty assumes path in same segment is shortest

As the train pathfinder is currently implemented it will always prefer the path that ends in the same segment as it starts in, regardless of whether it is the closest one or not: demonstration.png 0eNqVmd1uozAQhd/F11B5bGND3mCfYVWt0sTbRSIQAam2qvLuCyVp2qwrzrkEzMfY83PG5k09Nad47Ot2VJs3Ve+6dlCbn29qqJ/bbT...

[kovarex] [0.16.41] Missing train path penalty

Trains in the NO_SCHEDULE or NO_PATH state do not give any penalty to the score of a path (except for the regular occupied block penalty that is). Savefile shows trains wanting to go through a path with trains in these states instead of a slightly longer one with no obstructions. Treating them the s...

[0.16.27] Crash when destroying trains

If the player has the "all train GUI" open (the one that shows a list of all active trains) the game can crash if trains are deleted through scripts. I've attached a log of this crash and a save in which I can reproduce it. To use the save simply load it, open the train list and run the fo...

Re: [kovarex] [for 0.16] [0.15.31] Chain signal path locking/changing/deadlocks

I'll have to change the deadlock ratings of a few of them and probably rerun the throughput testing on at least one. Most designs tested haven't changed that much, except that those rated B-E should need hard path changes to deadlock. As I'll be changing how I rate intersections anyway this should a...
