Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

Sorry, but did you read what I wrote under a) ? I have a gaming computer. During these tests I had max. 50% CPU usage, only 6 or 7 GB from 32 GB RAM and max. 30% GPU usage. I also have a fast SSD (PCIe NVMe SSD). What upgrade do you think I need, when Factorio doesn't even use a full potential of m...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

Hi, why does the testbench map allows only a specific maximum game speed (probably 10x)? If I have a several dozens work-versions of intersection and do a three test per one, it can take a lot of time. The editor extensions mod, that is required (if I am right), can boost the game up to 64x game sp...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

How does a pair of T-intersections actually compare to compact 4-way intersections? Mainly thinking 2-lane (1 rail per direction). There is 1 such design in the buffered category but none in the compact. They perform the same. But if you place the unbuffered 3 ways close to each other, =<2 train le...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

The goal was to make the highest throughput 4-way unbuffered intersection. This intersection now holds the highscore for 4-way unbuffered intersections. It looks larger than the others, but when Including the safe outputs it really isn't. set 1: 52 Set 2: 41 Set 3 46 Average: 47 https://factoriobin....

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

Major update 5.1.1
New map with 0.0 closer to the center of the bench.
Editor extension instead of creative mod
Now 3-way can be placed in any direction and tested correctly

In v5.0.6

Set 2 RHT 3-way is different from set 2 LHT 3-way. East coming trains prefer to go west for RHT instead of south.
It's now fixed with 5.0.7.
I have a new update underway, where I redo all the schedules, but I want to have a stable working version as a backup.

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

On the old 4 way forum aaargha used RHD/LHD wrong and I think many learned it from there. I think especially us that are non native English speakers didn't question it. I didn't question it before I saw multiple times in the Factorio discord chat that we are using RHD/LHD wrong. Huh, ok. I just got...

Thanks, I'll fix that. Basically means all results with 3 way on 5.0.6 is invalid.

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

RHD drives on the left side of the road Shouldn't that be right side? In my language we say translated rightdriving/leftdriving where rightdriving is driving on the right. But in English right hand drive means the steering wheel is on the right side of the car. And cars with the steering wheel on t...

[ RHT/LHT (When did D become T? What does T stand for?) Score: 109/111 Set1: 115/114 Set2: 104/108 Hey Farcast, what a cool intersection! I'll test it later. RHD is a term describing where the wheel is placed in a car so cars with RHD drives on the left side of the road. Since our use of RHD/LHD is...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

I am back with more intersections. :) I took some inspiration from my blitz roundabout but then i rotated it 45°and added frontend buffers. The first design does not use parallel buffers for the same direction and it scored slightly better than Windmill MK2. The second design has more parallel buff...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

v5.0.6 With version 5.0.4 multiple issues were fixed regarding the 3/4way detector. Also added lights to easier see which trains are being spawned and named all stations so that you can see which trains are being spawned. Makes it easier to change things and to understand the bench. 5.0.5 introduced...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

v5 Major update Now it's an intersection tester for any intersections! if you are missing some connections, trains will use whatever lanes are available. The update from Kano to the spawning mod makes that possible. Support for up to 16 ways or any combination of planned intersections. There is no n...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

v4.6.1 New RHT and LHT Detector. Together with 4.6 this now makes all kinds of combinations possible to test without errors. You can also now connect to whatever rail you want. No need to use the inner lanes. This makes it easier to adapt to different rail spacings as you don't have to do all the cu...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

so if i am understanding you correctly, if i were to make exact copies of the original stations, rename the new stations like NE, NW, SE, SW, and add them to the trains for routes then it would work as a proper 8 way intersection testing system. no need to change any of the combinators in the syste...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

would adding in the additional stops as exact copies of the 4 originals and just connect with circuit wires to the rest work? Will i need to add in additional trains for routes? will i need to modify the combinator system much if at all? That would work but it would be equivalent to just splitting ...

Re: Testbench for 3/4way intersections

New version 4.6 Adjustable input tpm, so that you can go beyond the standard 29 TPM or lower to hit the sweet spot for your intersection. Max is 33 tpm per lane. Removed crossing between input and output. Allows intersections that uses [input output input output] for 4 lanes. Instead of the normal 4...
