I always send an artillery train around to keep things clean at my outposts.
With train limits, I've named all my iron mines the same, all my copper mines the same, etc. For the artillery train, this causes two problems:
Which is not to say I don't like the train limits, but just that I need to do some more thinking about how my artillery train fits into all this.
- I can't send it to individual mines anymore, because it randomly picks from among the same-named stations. It'll go to an iron mine to shoot, but I can't know which one.
- If I have very low train limits on a set of stations, the artillery train can even get stuck and not go anywhere because no stations are free for it.
Train limits don’t cause that problem, same name stations cause that problem, and that’s was true before train limits too.
Train limits solve one problem with same name stations, arguably the biggest blocking problem when scaling same name stations to many trains and outposts, but it never was the only reason not to use them.
