Small curiosity: What exactly is a "building store"?

I mostly follow my own best practice guidelines within reason. There's no noticeable performance gain in filtering from 5 items to 3, but when connecting LTN to a building store filtering down from 100 items to 10 certainly is a good idea. (Emphasis not in original) Hi there! The underlying topic b...

Re: Get stucked with basic LTN ID problem [solved]

Hi there! Sorry for the necro, but this post is square-on-point what I'm running into. I agree that cache or buffer locations are of limited utility. That said, I'd care to experiment with using one to accelerate depleting a specific resource patch -- I hate-hate-HATE building atop unharvested resou...

Re: [1.16.3] Trains dispatched to stations without temporary GPS tag, thus going to wrong provider/requesters

1) Why doesn't LTN detect that adding the GPS temporary stop fails? Shouldn't that output a message and flag the station a broken / red light? Sending a train there should fail and pick another station. In essence, I think an A-or-B outcome of this is already the case, as discussed above. A), the t...

Re: Should LTN use the vanilla train limit?

I sometimes order myself a train, dump all my wood in it and send it to a wood consumer manually. Potentially the station could overflow there. By sheer accident, my personal gameplay habit on this particular issue seems to be a valid workaround for the error case you're describing. If I want a des...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

Hi there! Coming back to Factorio after some time off. I'd been using the standalone Warehouses mod, and would prefer to continue doing so in my main save. It seems to have migrated to "Angel's Addons - Storage Options," which does support mostly-seamless transition as my main save is stil...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Sisyphean Deliveries

Only necro-ing to state that this is an awesome idea for a mod. It's a shame that it hasn't evolved to post-release. A sincere thank you to this modder, and all modders for volunteering their time and ability to make games like Factorio better.

Returning from factorio hiatus, noob question on new LTN features

Hi there Optera. Thank you so much for making this really neat mod. I got sucked away from Factorio just after the pandemic lockdowns started in the US, ad I'm back in earnest again now. I see that with v1.13.0 you changed the behavior to somehow take advantage of the temp-stop system of the base ga...

Bump. Note that I am the mod-user to submit what I'm guessing to have been the first example of this bug in the wild.

Seeking assistance with depot parking management

Howdy. Base v0.18.x (currently 0.18.9) LTN v1.12.3. My issue is that Depot parking spots can sometimes be over-partitioned, resulting in trains dangling out on the mainlines heading into the Depot. This is more pronounced near high-volume requester locations. I'm aware of the possibility of assignin...

Re: Train's CTRL-click Temporary Stop behavior

When i don't want the train to leave to the next destination after a temporary stop, i don't give it a next destination ;) Before my taxi train used to have several PAX station scheduled in memory, so it was fast to select them as destination. But the train sneaking away a few times after temporary...

Re: Blueprint Book is not enough for me

I WOULD like the ability to edit within a blueprint if I find an error. ... I really like this idea. It would eliminate the need to move the blueprint to my storage area. Plop it down. Change stuff. Make a new blueprint. Place the new blueprint in the blueprint storage area. And then delete the old...

Re: Blueprint Book is not enough for me

Zooming/scrolling should be much easier on the eyes. Oh, that would be totally awesome. It would also come in handy when actually *creating* a blueprint and when it comes to removing single items which don't belong there. For large blueprints, it's really tedious to click on a single inserter or po...

Re: Picture picker for in-text "emoji" icons

The items-in-text feature is little known, amazingly useful, but difficult to use. Even without mods it almost necessitates using the wiki to find item and fluid "real names" and with mods it is nigh-impossible to use effectively. Holy crap, is this true. I've "learned" at least...

Train's CTRL-click Temporary Stop behavior

Hi there. I use trains very heavily, particularly when expanding to a cityblock system as the starter mainbus base gets dismantled slowly. I use LTN which requires all trainstops to be uniquely named, and I have a lot of trainstops for a lot of different cityblock types or outpost types. I use a ver...
