Spidertron Train

Post by -Holo- »

TL;DR
A Traincart to dock a spidertron into for transport via railway

What ?
i would love to see a traincart which only houses a single Spidertron that you could walk into with the Spidertron and have the Spidertron sitdown and dock into, letting it be transported via trains!
Why ?
It would be a nice option for moving around huge maps instead of putting waypoints.

Cool gif for a cool mod

Yeah, exactly like that! :D, maybe not on the train but a specialised cart though

Well if someone makes me some cart graphics it would be very easy to add it as on option for the mod. Until then, it will have to stay as a request for vanilla :D

You should check out Vehicle Wagons. I haven't tried it with spidertrons yet, but according to the info page, they are supported. Not sure about the graphics for spidertrons, but for vehicles based on the "car" prototype, there are wagons with custom graphics for some prototypes (vanilla and some modded vehicles). For all other vehicles, the image defaults to a flatbed wagon with a vehicle hidden by a tarp.
A good mod deserves a good changelog. Here's a tutorial (WIP) about Factorio's way too strict changelog syntax!
