I use it to shutdown the factory when critical battery level is reached.

The signals allow you to "program" your factory. They are basically triggers when based on the item counts in chests you can switch on / off inserters. We originally though the signals will be extremely useful, however we haven't seen many people using them. Therefore we are curious. Tell us what you think.

i thought it would be nice to have.
It is interesting to lay down tracks and signals to make the train to go where we want, but when i saw a no path issue, i had to walk the whole train path checking signals to see where i failed to place/ misplaced the signal. this troubleshooting took more time than shooting the aliens (not fun).

I would be nice, when in select a destination station, the game highlights where the signal problem is
show the path that the train can reach unitil where the path leads to the problem spot (instead of saying just no path).
