Equipment sure, it would be fun to have a rocket defense on outpost trains. Logistics should probably be turned off when the train is moving, to avoid the "hey wait up" robot swarm effect. Maybe there should be a generic rule that no logistic robot will try to fly to something moving faster than it can move, or with a locked in destination.robot256 wrote: ↑Fri Dec 04, 2020 4:09 amI've thought about doing that for Vehicle Wagon, actually. For example, use the Spider Remote to click on a Vehicle Wagon flatbed car, and it walks over and curls up onto it. I have no idea how to animate the legs, but we could certainly get the behavior right.i tried it, expecting to see it latch on physically. i was disappointed.
Normally when vehicles are loaded they are held in stasis (actually deleted), but we could replace it with a "legless spider" that teleports along with the train so that logistics and equipment keep working while riding the train.
Watching logistic robots get pissed and spiking their cargo into the nearest chest is one of the last minor annoyances I have left with the general operation of the game (the train changes were such a HUGE improvement), even if it's kind of funny to see sometimes.
