Automatic Train Station Names

This mod allows to automatically set train station names after a certain pattern. If a train station name contains parentheses (), they will be automatically filled with the position of the train stop. If the name contains brackets [], they will be filled with a number which is one larger than the largest number of all other train stations with the same name pattern. The station name pattern will be taken either from a blueprint or from the mod settings, where a default name pattern can be set.

Example patterns:

  • Station []: The stations will be called Station [1], Station [2], ...
  • Mine at (): A station will be called e.g. Mine at (-31,103)
  • Station [] at (): A station will be called e.g. Station [2] at (21,17)
    when there already is a station called Station [1] at (11,-7)


The following blueprint contains several train stations with different names:
