Re: Big rocket fuel production. Can someone?

if you prefer it modular and multi purpose, have a look at this:

The Refinery

the rocketfuel module produces ~675 rocketfuel/minute and can be stacked.

Re: 4-way intersections: Throughput and deadlocks [image heavy]

i've reworked the 'Alternating Cross' (already testet) and made a (hopefully) better version. its powerpole alinged, 6car, and LHD may i ask you to run a test on it? for everyone else its a potent 4lane x-junction ;) 0eNqlnd1unDeShm9loOMo+PhP5hr2eLHAYLBwEiGrhawYjjPYwcD3vi1L3Wor9Xa/z6eT2Z2M87iaZPEji2...

Re: Smart Station for outposts

Hah, nope. At the moment the station disabled any loading train leaves it immediately, so it will leave unfull. Tried that. They once made it this way, but repatched it back in. I'm using circuit controled trainstations aswell and its working just fine. Maybe it has something to do with the wait co...

Re: high throughput stacker & station

its always a compromise for space and throughput (or productivity), in search for good or best efficiency. i think 4 car trains (with 2 locos) have a good combination of cargospace and acceleration. and yes, my thought was to create a generic trainstop to plop down and do some (combinator-) settings...

Re: high throughput stacker & station

this stacker/system will only make sense if you have a large station with multiple train stops (>= 2 different train stop names) and more than one item to unload (eg [iron] [iron] [copper] [copper]). for stations with multiple train stops and only one train stop name (=same item) to unload it wont m...

high throughput stacker & station

i was looking for a solution to increase the train throughput of (big) stations. this is where i found out that the part between stacker and the trainstops itself and the station exits were the bottleneck most of the time. i fiddled around a little bit and came up with this: 0eNrtXVtyGzm23EoHv0UFHge...

Re: AID - Automatic Item Delivery

im quite shure the problem was the incoming counting signal. as in 0.17 some longer wires arent connected anymore. https://i.imgur.com/Kuy14VP.jpg ive moved the signal in the green circle ive moved the signal a bit, so the green wire connects again. may be done by an additional power pole aswell. up...

Re: AID - Automatic Item Delivery

nice to hear someone is trying this out... i can try to create a little closer documentation, but it may take some time. i haven't worked on this for quite some time (we use it and it works so far, just slower than anticipated). but now to your problem... i downloaded your savegame and had a look at...

omg... that happens when you change things at the last moments... i found the bug and its quite easy to repair. just connect the train stop and the two combinators above with red wire (see image). nothing further to do. https://i.imgur.com/hgYfHuc.png one of the last things i've changed was this res...

Re: Smart Trains - looking for testers

i see your point.. maybe its not clear enough, thanks for pointing that out ;-) the 'Q' signal is is exclusively for remote requests. the remote requests use the global green wire, while the 'regular' requests use the global red wire. 'Q' is used to indentify the station you want to set the remote r...
