Re: highlight where the signal problem is

Realistically there are a few options that I can think of: 1- Yes it would work it's still be a bunch of work though 2- Although it does seems similar it is not at all when you hit manual and drive you know where you need to go. But the algorthime doesn't so it would be more similar to hop into a d...

Re: Suggestion: Trains can have permanent orders that doesn't change regardless of station renaming.

Or you could place a station called "build" somhere that isn't connected to the rest of you train network so there would always be a station with the name build and when you rename your build station it wouldn't change the shedule of your trains

Re: Add friction to rails?

It would be way too calculation heavy to need to get every rail that is under each train to be able to calculate your speed at the next tick. Mostly, where will be single type rail for entire train, so that's a singe min(,) function. It shouldn't be heavy. Mixed rails may be approximated, say, to t...

Re: highlight where the signal problem is

I would like to know what are your minimum requirement for somthing to become popular.

And also if you are using train signal you should use the debug option to show them on the minimap it would make things easier.

Re: Add friction to rails?

It would be way too calculation heavy to need to get every rail that is under each train to be able to calculate your speed at the next tick. A track that wouldn't allow certain train to pass on it would be way less calculation heavy since you could just keep track on each block if a train can go th...

Re: mark-for-upgrading when blueprinting over fast-replaceable entities

I wouldn't care if it's not an option, because it doesn't seem right to not do it: I can normally place A over B if I'm in range. Why doesn't copy-paste or blueprinting let me? It feels broken. I would care because I use the fact that I can't place 2 different type of inserter in the same place to ...

And what if you place a normal signal in front of the chain signal? No space, he? :)
Then if you put a chain signal behing it it would chain on the normal signal you put not the chain signal in front of it.

Re: Request: Max number of trains for stations

This is only prototype implementation, it visits all trains to count how many times given train stop is referenced. If train stop is referenced 5 times and limit is decreased to 3, then first 2 trains that will repath for any reason, will not be able to reserve this train stop again and will go som...

And how would that work with wooden rails (where I don't have steel rails for ages so no sensors) or powered rails (where the sensor rail breaks the power flow)? For wooden rails I see no probleme no steel rail no sensor and you could even change the sensor recipe so taht it doesn't cost steel. For...

Re: Request: Max number of trains for stations

This creates some issues when during loading, amount of trains decreases and one of trains in queue fails to path to same train stop. COuldn't you make it so that the train that is currently loaded is counted toward the max but be the first one removed from the list when the amount of train decreas...

As a follow-up to my previous response to the fluid system *still* not being fixed, and the news that it isn't even planned for 1.0 (which generally means never), I have removed my positive review on Steam, as well as removing it as my favorite game on my profile.

That's a good sugestion
