    Is there ever a point to chain signals besides intersections? Seems like rail signals do everything else though I'm curious if there are any optimizations.

      Short trains don't need them, but longer trains and tighter intersections need them.
      See chain signals as a preparation signal so the trains don't clog up or start stop unwanted.
      Especially so if the a small train decides to ram into a long train.

      chain signals are important for creating functional rail spaghetti delivery routes on a basic two-way system, as another anon said they're basically mandatory once you start mixing train lengths on the same system

      you're going to have a very bad time if you try using 1/4/8 car trains on the same delivery network without chain signals

      They dont. Be a real man like me and have every train be on its own individual circuit.

      they segment sections of the track, only 1 train can be in 1 segment
      chain signals know if the next segment of track is blocked off and will stop you if it is
      when used on a multiple choice, a chain signal will only stop you if all possible sections of track are closed, but if one is open it will let you into that section

      Krastorio is great. SE is... I dunno how I feel about it. I never got super far into it and it just feels like it doesn't really work with the mechanics. The mod is functional certainly, but going to different planets is an overly laborious chore, Factorio just simply was not designed around using multiple concurrent maps and it really, really shows.

      I'd still install space exploration if you are installing Krastorio though, that way you get the content and the maps generate, and you can always decide later if you want to go to space or ignore it.

      Fun if you don't know what you are doing. I am beyond that so I have more fun in single player. There is a lot to learn if you get into circuits, or even how the train system can be automated with basic circuits under a supply and demand rule.

      For those wondering, you can automate it by having train stops have train circuits set to track the supply at the station and if it falls below 1-2 train fulls, you can then have it set to then open to the network and any trains which have it listed as a station will then be routed to it. I have seen people use some fairly complex systems to automate train systems, but with their inbuilt path finding, you can offload the main load onto the trains themselves which will go around to open stations. Just add in your supply stations with automated systems to signal that they have a train full ready, and some depos to offload full trains off the network to refuel and wait for requester stations to open up. On the plus side, you can track your global supply and demand via signals based on how many train fulls each station is showing in terms of supply and demand.

      It's literally the best and most involved co-op multiplayer experience that requires genuine coordination and active communication between the players, as long as you're in a voice chat with friends of a similar skill level. It's definitely not a game you want to be playing with random strangers who don't communicate and just want to do their own thing.

      depends on who youre playing with and what skill level you both are at. when i started playing my friend wanted to play with me, he already launched a rocket once. it ended up with him doing most stuff and correcting my shit afterwards, slapping down his blueprints and whatnot. it was great fun, we played from 22:00 pm to 13:00 am the next day but the fun only really started for me when i went to do my own shit and figure shit out for myself. at some point it wouldve been too much work for him to correct my stuff so he let me do my thing my way

      Every time you are playing any game you are doing "work", if it's racing you are doing work since you are constantly adjusting to your car and track, depending on the game you are also making decisions when tuning your car, if it's fps you are also doing work by trying to predict where your enemies are, having awareness of your surroundings and also focusing on your aim, factorio is just a different type of work and it's a type of work that isn't for you, so you should just not play the game

      I've only found two use for balancers:
      a) output from ore patches for that each patch output line is consumed at the same rate (better throughput overall)
      b) input to trains so that all cars are loaded at the same rate (instead of e.g. 1 car ending up full first and its serters left idle while other cars are still 50 or 75% empty). (buffer chests don't help if the buffer empties before the train is full)

      I can give you a short hint and then the full hint.

      Figure out which recipe will reduce the most deviation and run that one.
      To figure out which recipe is the best, you have to calculate the outcome of running the recipe first.

      Here's the full hint: https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comments/mr4b86/comment/gul725a/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

      Start with like a dozen of every condenser you need and put them somewhere with space to expand later if necessary. Since they shit out materials for free you may as well overproduce and forget about them until some liquid storage tank going full deadlocks your factory elsewhere

    How do train signals work?

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      they segment sections of the track, only 1 train can be in 1 segment
      chain signals know if the next segment of track is blocked off and will stop you if it is
      when used on a multiple choice, a chain signal will only stop you if all possible sections of track are closed, but if one is open it will let you into that section

      this is the third time I've seen you post this question with the answer in your image. I think you are too big of a fucking retard for Factorio anon

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      The fundamental function is to divide segments of train track into so-called "blocks." Only a single train is allowed in a block at a time, which means a signal will never let trains into occupied blocks and as such it is impossible for them to crash into each other.

      There are 2 types of signal, the standard one and the Chain signal. The standard one just does what I described above. The chain signal has an additional function beyond the standard features. It "looks" at signals (chain or regular) ahead of itself on the track and will only be green if those signals are green. The chain signal also has a blue color which it can display, which means that some signals following after it are green and some are red, or some are other chains which are blue. Blue just means there are multiple paths ahead and they're not all green.

      Generally speaking you use standard signals everywhere to divide track into blocks and use chains in special bits of your network like junctions. Their function is usually to prevent trains from stopping in places where they would interfere with other crossing tracks. For instance you don't want your train stopping in the middle of a junction and blocking other tracks, you want it to only enter the junction if it can also exit, so you use chain signals so the train is only allowed in if the exit is free.

      Like everything else in base game factorio they really arent that bad. Think of it like a bit more complicated steam power farm with the added step of the first refinement cycle being kinda long. I do find them to occupy a slightly odd niche. They arent needed if all you wanna do is make the rocket and if you plan to make a megafactory ya laying down miles of solar panels is just better. Honestly solar power is the least well balanced thing in the game and it shouldnt had been added.

          Funny that you mention that just saw a vid where they explained a few things they intend to never to the game and one of the big ones was green power like solar and wind. Given that the main limiting factor of satisfactory is the base resources being "finite" you know what I mean having an infnite source of energy would be really good. Also players would just cover the map in green power and they dont want players doing that.

      No it's wrong. They do play but they don't play a lot or for very long. Codemonkey women. I think they would rather create something homely and warm but creating a cold uncaring system, they have enough of that at work. The game seems like a good idea at first and that's why you see them play for a little bit.
      It is for autists though that is true, the crippling kind of autism hence the furry and transexual undertone of the community but also the autism which should be put to good use.

      It all makes sense when you progress through it.
      You only get a few things to start and they all feed into research to get more piece by piece which builds on the factory.
      You'd play for a good few hours, have a billion things you need to do and a trillion things to do to do those billion things but you'll know what needs to be done and you'll start thinking you have autism aswell

      Factorio is excellent at introducing each bit to you piecemeal
      and you get to play around with it to your leisure
      before you move on to other things

      the two biggest walls are fluids/oil byproducts
      and expanding your base when you realize your blue circuit production is about 1% of what it actually needs to be

      oil is midgame is necessary for an important force multiplier, robots
      blue circuits are late game and will get you really interacting with the blueprint system and robots as you learn how to copy and paste existing parts of your base (like ore extraction) instead of doing it all manually

    In my experience, most of the "big" mods end up not working in multiplayer, because the server inevitably starts to lag + desyncs start to happen. I think no matter how hard they optimize the game, there is always a finite limit to the amount of autism you can build in a single map.
    Does the Space Exploration mod help with that? If you build factories on different planets, does that help reduce lag?

      I've never played it but 3D instead of 2D generally just makes all logistical problems massively easier since you just need to deviate by 1 z-level to have an open field again.

        I think it’s more aesthetically pleasing, while still providing enough brain activity to scratch the itch. My time in factorio was great, but it me being dumb made it get so brain consuming that I never went on to get mods downloaded and go further.

    I quit factorio when I had learned enough about trains to put them on an infinite loop where they just went to an outpost, got loaded to full, then went to processing then back to the outpost, one train on one route.
    I should really go back and learn to make a networked system where trains can all freelance and just move to any outpost and deliver shit that is requested by processors. I don't know if it actually matters in terms of efficiency because trains are waaaaaay cheaper than the things they carry so having a lot of underexploited trains probably isn't truly important
