I think you can simulate factories that aren't directly connected (only with trains or robots) in different threads. But I know, finding "not connected" factories can be quite challenging, because wagons can be used as storage box.slpwnd wrote:The original idea here was to simulate different chunks in different threads. However this is quite tricky to do properly - namely because overlaps and special cases. Another approach we have been thinking about recently is to do some "thematic" parallelization. Things like electric energy propagation, path finder, rail finding.
And I have question about Steam integration, do you plan support Steam Workshop for mods? And maybe for blueprint sharing?
