This is the start of the end for wagons. I've split out liquid wagons into a new mod and will be doing the same with electric locomotives. I may do provider wagons as well but I wont be bothering with the roboport wagon, the accumulator wagon or the battle wagons. For the moment Master Builder has fixed electric locos for 0.11 so I've added that to the download list below. Use this to open your saves in 0.11. I'll leave the old downloads up for a while if anyone wants them but they will not be updated again.
Do not use construction bots to place or remove powered rail.
Do not use filters in provider wagons. Things go funky.
Active Provider Carriage, Passive Provider Carriage and Storage Carriage
Accumulator Carriage (extra battery)
These wagons come in 2 varieties, Laser Battle Wagon and Gun Battle Wagon. The Gun Battle wagon is equivalent of 6 gun turrets with an expanded inventory. Mostly useless later game but if better ammo ever gets added to the base game these could be really useful. Laser Battle Wagons are worth 4 laser turrets and chew though the power accordingly, they will work with accumulator carriages but not for long so make sure you are connected to the grid. You will find the items under the combat group.
I've not bothered posting sprites as I have reused some old ones. I have also left the animation on as a test so when the gun is ready they should fold out. It looks a little weird, sorry. These wagons really need some sprites and animation to work without looking really silly.
Power rail will extend your power network without the hassle of running all those wires. Just lay them down and connect one of them to the power network. Once they are connected to the network they should work like small power poles which electrify the tiles the rail is on. You can see the power coverage here:
You need to research Logistics Carriages, Powered Carriages, Battle Wagons and Electric Trains to unlock all the features. The recipes are probably too cheap at the moment and will need to be balanced. Power rail recipes may be to expensive.
Electric trains are in and powered rail are in, the code for liquid storage is in but disabled. Added the requester carriage, made possible by changes in 0.10. If you use it in 0.9.x it will just behave as a passive provider.
Added Battle Wagons. I am not sure about these. They are kind of cool but I don't really think they will ever be useful. If you think different, let me know. If we can't the sprites to look good they will have to come out anyway.
The mod is currents called "Wagons". This is not a great name, any one got any better ideas for a name? How about Carriages? Trains? Trains++? Moar Trains?
Allotrope is currently handling the art so if anyone has any feed back or suggestions I am sure he will be happy to read them. Thanks Allotrope!
Powered rail placed by bots is not powered rail.
Powered rail removed by bots will leave behind the power network
Robots and Repair-packs from other mods can be deleted from the game if they end up in the roboport wagon.
Please let me know, I am sure they exist!
- 0.0.1: Initial release
0.0.2: Refactored code and added an accumulator carriage.
0.0.3: Refactored more code because I like bugs. Added electric locomotives and new sprites. Changes how objects are tracked in game so a bug that no one will have noticed should not happen again
0.0.4: Added static proxies, allowing for power rail. Also re-wrote the collision detection code because it was so wrong... So so wrong... I don't even know how it worked...
0.0.5 Fixed small bug in 0.0.4 about the placement of the locomotive power proxy
0.0.6 Fixed a bug where if you laid power and standard rail in the same place the game would never load your save again.
0.0.7 Added collision_mask allowing things to work as expected. Reworked power rail, removing power nodes. Added code for liquid storage (it does not work and probably never will but it is ready just in case)

0.0.9 Added requester carriages.
0.0.10 Added battle wagons, fixed a few bugs, added some new icons.
