Whoa! The walls look great! Now we need this as an option for PvP under "Duplicate starting entities".

I'm a bit curious as to why the speed varies. In the comments of his video, he says that he's using an AutoHotkey script, so shouldn't it maintain a constant speed if you do something like this:

Code: Select all
Label1:
Send {Enter}
Sleep, 16.67
Goto, Label1

(that's obviously simplified and you could use loops, but you can get the gist of it.)

EDIT: AutoHotkey is quite aggressive and will try to make anything you do (including turning it off) very difficult if you use the above script. Something you could actually use (presses enter 60 times per second while caps lock is on) would go like this:

Code: Select all
#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
#Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

#InstallKeybdHook

Label1:
If GetKeyState("CapsLock" , "T")
  {
  Send {Enter}
  Sleep, 16.67
  Goto, Label1
  }Else{
  Sleep, 100
  }
Goto, Label1

Apologies if it's a bit messy, just something I threw together quick.

EDIT 2: Compiled script attached if anyone actually cares and doesn't want to install ahk. Also because it took about 5 seconds. And it's zipped because the forum doesn't allow .exe

My browser seems to be broken. It's not showing the video for this :?: :roll: :?:

Any chance we can get diagonal rail gates?

Nice on the new walls. Not sure I'm a fan of the gates, but I'll learn to live with it.

That's odd, I'm not getting anything like that. Is that limited to the EU?
Also, a couple questions about the privacy thing: What is the newsletter? Do you send out the FFFs as an email, or what? Also, why is 16 the age under which you need parental consent for internet stuff? I've usually seen 13 - is that a US law vs GDPR thing?
Also :P:

the fuel notification is quite handy, although when your train network is not redundant enough you'll notice it soon enough :lol:

Smooth looking double wall. Looks like that would be much more stable then a single wall. Consider adding a max HP bonus to walls with adjacent wall sections maybe? These graphics definately suggest that would hold up.

The train fuel alert is also very handy once the train grid becomes... big. Good things! :)

I really like the new "out of fuel" notification. Very useful for me.
The now filled wall are good (looking) too, even thougt a bit bright.
And thumbs up for more structures in high resolution. :) b

Is new laser turret shoots are continuous in time now instead of autonavigated fast moving king-of-bullets?

Am I seeing this right: will the laser turret now be an actual, y'know, laser? :D
