Re: Why are those signals red?

We cannot debug this without seeing more of the map.
Please add a screenshot of your map view with the whole train setup.
Also is the issue in your other thread solved. is that the same train network?

Re: How do YOU use mining drills?

I explicitly tested the case (in map editor) where I created a very sparse resource field that soon got defragmented into many distinct resource fields during mining. However, as long as the one miner stayed in place and I didn't change anything with its configuration, it reported for the original ...

Re: How do YOU use mining drills?

How do I do it? Spaced out - Slow mining - slow loading - I don't care how many mines I need as long as they are easy to build and easy I to remove. That's why there is only a single rail line to the grid and no power connection - see attached screenshot And of course over engineered as much as I ca...

Re: LTN - locked slot not working?

It's hard to debug the setup with only one picture but I think I spotted something else: Your inserters are controlled by the green wire witch connects them directly to the LTN constant combinator. According to the manual the signal output there is: Constant Combinator: (signal output) train composi...

Re: LTN - locked slot not working?

My guess:
LTN thinks it can use both wagons.
You locked 3 slots per wagon so it thinks it can load 74 slots of processing units.

Re: Cliffs as natural rail elevators

Only thing that I can think of:
If you try to place a ramp over a cliff - without hitting the shift key - then it allows it - but only if you place it in the "correct" position.

Re: how do I set the traffic lights so that this train passes?

When you fix what was said above the train should no longer enter the crossing it can't leave.

But the next sector is not free yet.
The problem is not this crossing but the V crossing ahead.
You haven't placed any signals there yet correct?

When looking at that remember the most important thing from the wiki Since Factorio aims for 60 ticks per second, the game has 16.667ms to calculate each tick. If it takes longer than this, then your UPS will drop below 60. Even on the "quieter" black screenshot you have update time 15ms. ...

Re: Friday Facts #389 - Train control improvements

You can make a requester station that sends a signal to tell the train what it should fetch next.
But if you need multiple trains to fullfil your stations needs tracking deliverys through combinator setups will be tricky.

And forget mixed trains

Re: [Request?] Add an option to prevent multiple cargo requests in a single schedule

Is the train station set to "read train content" ?
What signals do your inserts get when the loading malfunctions? (Connect wire to electric pole and read the signal there)
