Mod Request: Railroad crossing block

Post by Saphira123456 »

Like a crossbuck or other such railway crossing safety device.

The basic idea is a single block that can be attached to a railway line, and can be used like a railway crossing, with minimal circuitry setup.

When a train approaches the crossing gates on the track, the gates close, the lights flash and a bell sounds. Cars and people can't go through the gates.
When the track is clear again, the lights stop, the bell turns off, and the gates open.

Doubt that's possible beyond using normal gates+rails with hidden entities (signals+wires)

One may as well use a blueprint

Perhaps but I really don't feel like doing that... Complex setups are not for me.

That would be what the blueprint is for. Make it once and paste it from then on. A mod would basically be the blueprint but with hidden entities, I don't think there's a way to do it otherwise.

Hey, if that's the only way to do it then go ahead and do it. Publish it and I'll download it!

Alternatively, make it once, save it to your blueprint library, and don't worry about it.

I wouldn't be able to figure out how! And if I was able to, I wouldn't have posted it here!

Can I get some step-by-step instructions?
