It's a little ugly, but I made a mod for this with the new API. :)

Train ui/logic 0.17

Post by boggis2 » Sun Mar 24, 2019 12:45 am

I love the new train ui and how train stops are listed, but if i have a player transport train the stop list tends to get quite long, it doesn't help that add new wait condition and await circuit signal takes up 2 slots, so i wish i would be able to select in the train to not show it at all in the list.

Conditional train stops, i would love to set up a train stop in the train that uses circuit logic to decide where the train goes next. for instance if i give the the train signal Iron Ore 5 it will go to the station i have programed the train to go to when it received that signal instead of turning the train stops on and off.

Conditional train stops
This has already been suggested many times, most recently in the following thread:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=64362 Dynamic train schedule
EDIT: This link now points to the current thread, because the threads have now been merged.

That thread also contains links to older threads.

As I have already stated in the thread mentioned above, I agree with the suggestion.

Something like this would be nice to see implemented.

Low fuel condition for trains

Post by zinefer » Sun Jun 16, 2019 9:32 pm

TL;DR
Add a low fuel condition (or let me specify items and amounts of fuel conditions) for the scheduler.

What ?
Allow me to specify an item in the train schedule that allows me to set a stop for a low fuel condition.

Why ?
I love modular rail based setups and I want to have all trains go to a central location for refueling and I think this would be a clean solution. There are other solutions to this problem (such as turning a station on and off for all trains every x minutes) but I really feel there should be a more efficient solution. I feel these concerns are well served by the scheduler as I could have very fine, per route control for refueling.

What you are basically asking for are conditional train orders. This has already been discussed in numerous threads, for example this one:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=64362 Dynamic train schedule
EDIT: Meanwhile, the threads have been merged. Therefore, my link above now points to the current thread.

That threads contains links to further threads.
