Re: regarding my blueprints and other neat things

all my bps use either 2-4-0 or 2-8-0 trains, so 2 locomotives and 4 or 8 cargo/fluid wagons. this explains the gap you mentioned. both locomotives face in the same direction, this will increase train acceleration by a large amount. and for design of train stations... thats completely your decision a...

regarding my blueprints and other neat things

introduction over the last couple of years i published various late- or endgame blueprints. i just wanted a central place to discuss questions and explain some of the things i created. of course i'm open for enhancements, other refinements and points of view. i'm still working on most of the bps, a...

Re: Balanced Fluids Train Station

this is my take on that subject: balanced fluid station.png the content of each pair of tanks will be translated into a number, the pumps compare those numbers and even out the tank content (only when fluid>500 ). this will not work perfect when the demand (for unloading stations) or supply (for loa...

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...

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...
