Longest Train

Post by lazuriz » Sun Aug 13, 2017 10:37 am

Hello,

Ealier today i told my house mate i would make the largest train i could in factorio and make it get to warp speed ( maximum ), so i did that and it took 3 hours to clear the trees, rocks and fill in some water, lay the tracks ( 7.8K tracks ), place the cargo wagons ( 2124 to be precise ) and finally place the most ludicrous part the 65 locomotives. This was a long tedious thing so i watched John Wick ( Really good movie :lol: ).

Now i tried to upload this post before and the string for the rail was too long i feel so if you would like the string its attached just like the world save with the whole train full of rocket full ready to go.
p.s. Here are links because the files dont want to upload XD.

So have some fun i might make some more of these things but more in a vanilla setup not cheaty :P

I think that's because you con't include attachments in your first post.
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

I'm gonna try to beat this. I'm working on a test track in creative, 4-tall ribbon world (to keep the save a reasonable size).
My goal is to have track right to the edge, at a 1 million tiles, and I'm currently at 600k. Extremely boring prep work, but I'm looking forward to some cool train science when it's ready.

original post from days ago
I did it. Not the breaking Factorio thing. It held up splendidly. Locomotives + wagons total: 8,554.
Do I get the longest train prize? http://steamcommunity.com/app/427520/di ... 132408905/

Here's the map (16.7MB. Be warned: it has been rather slow to load and save for me --7 or 8 minutes): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8eZ5 ... E54QTN6Rmc
