Re: Locomotive that can drive backwards

Would it be possible to have two locomotives share the same sprite? I know the second loco would still slow the train but I think it would still be interesting.

Locomotive that can drive backwards

I've search the mod portal to no avail and I'm wondering if anyone has ever made modded up a single locomotive that can drive both ways (ie replacement for doing double header). If it hasn't been done before is it even possible to do with mods? If there is any chance it is possible then I may have j...

Re: Force a rail signal to be green by circuit control

I have discovered a reason for wanting this to be implemented. Recently NiftyManiac came up with a mod that allows for coupling/decouipling trains when they stop at a station. I've been playing around with his mod attempting to build an automated sorting yard where trains are broken apart and rebuil...

Re: Friday Facts #177 - Difficulty settings

The game is designed around mouse and keyboard so any issues you have because you're not using a mouse and keyboard are not real issues that we want to spend any time on. While I do understand about the game being designed around mouse and keyboard and I agree in principal, I think you should consi...

Re: Railroad Layouts

@xenomorph: devs could also subtly alter the sprites for trains and tracks so that the rails resemble the rails of a rollercoaster...then gradient wouldn't matter. Factorio already asks us to suspend disbelief over much less believable things than underground trains.

Re: Friday facts #146 - The GFX workflow

That pump is clearly going to be for loading the rail tanker car...love the concept art so far, great idea to have it so the pipes visibly extend to connect with the wagon.

Re: Train stations V vs H

That does bring up the interesting point that if loaders are implemented then trains being different sizes H vs V is a non-issue

Re: Train stations V vs H

I think they should just split the difference and implement both methods....stretch the graphics but use gaps to keep from looking too ridiculous.

Re: A simple sensor for keeping belts moving

I use a splitter filter(the arrangement of splitters that filters a belt)....100% output unless the belt backs up...as soon as the belt is backed up 100% of output is directed to storage. Side load back on to main line from storage so that nothing moves until main line isn't backed up

Re: Loader Poll - Trying to get an idea of what the opinions are

As long as loaders cannot interact with assemblers they are perfectly alright, imho. Oh! Make them require electricity to run! (not as balancing mechanism... 'cause being able to turn them on and off using the power switch would open up so many possibilities).
