Trains direction

Post by denchikmed » Tue May 24, 2016 4:01 pm

For all those who need to orientate a train, here you have a rails disign to orientate it in any diretion. Maybe it wasn't that necesary, i don't know, but i did it for my big map so i didn't need to change my entire base. Hope it helped you.

I don't understand...what do you mean by "orient it in any direction"? Can't you just place a train down on preexisting tracks and it'll be aligned to the tracks?

Or maybe I should be asking what this is useful for?

This is was a efficient way of using 6 trains in a 4000*4000 (approximately) area, so you don't need to build 30 stations and 60 trains (inflated) and spend more resources.
I did this design for my Supply mode Game, so i don't miss any resources and can have my production overflowed.
The unique weak points are:
- There only can be 1 train on the track.
- The train will have a limited cargo size (becouse of the wagons).

I'm confused about something. You used the word "efficient"

I still don't understand what it's for, why it's this complex, and doubt if it really works anyway.

Yes don't get it but it looks pretty.

Maybe it's just for showcase the train from all sides.

I can't decide what this is actually doing.

I feel like you were trying to do this but got lost in Tourette's Syndrome land placing track.

Skobai, yea it was actually made for somethinkg like that but in a much bigger scale, becouse i needed a lot of resources (rock,coal, ores and oil) from diferent places that are too far one of eac other, and my main factory and the place were i need te materials are in the center, so i builded it that way they come discharge and go to charge another resource.
To make it you aunderstand:
1-Train arrives discharges <Coal>
2-Train goes to charge <Rock>
3-Train descharges <Rock>
4- Etc.

These makes a loop wich was actually pretty good to manage all the resources and secure they will arrive on the correct cuantities without wasting materials. and much time.

I still don't understand the advantage over the simple circle.

Are you aware that trains can use the same track twice?

If you make a track with two tracks coming off of it, the train will choose which track to take next based on what the next station is. You don't need to make several independent tracks in order to tell the train where to go.

This is precisely what happens if you're suffering from a stroke while playing Factorio. Fascinating!
