LTN - Logistic Train Network

by Optera

Adds logistic-train-stops acting as anchor points for building a fully automated, train logistic network. It can handle all possible train configuration. Just send all trains to depots and LTN will pick the best suitable train for a job. LTN cuts the amount of rolling stock required to run a megabase down to 30% or less. With cargo ships installed also adds a logistic port for ships.

FAQ

  • Trains not running deliveries
    1) Check provide and request threshold, if none is set global setting is used
    2) Check if train size is plausible between requester and provider
    3) Check if Network ID is plausible between requester, provider and depot

  • Changing train composition makes trains switch to manual mode
    Workaround for [this behavior] (https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=38850). After you're done rearranging trains send them back to the depot in automatic mode to register with LTN again.

  • Unloading fluids with circuit controlled pumps leaves residue
    Support [round up fluids reading train inventory] (https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=49274)
    Meanwhile don't use Stop output fluid values to control pumps for unloading. Use [Inventory Sensor] (https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Optera/Inventory%20Sensor) instead to have fluids always rounded up.

  • Trains longer than 31 carriages don't display train composition signals
    Nothing I can do about that, the circuit network is signed int and can only display 31 bits.

  • LTN uses a lot of update time in megabases
    Increase update frequency in mod settings. At an update frequency of 5 I'm running a 2k spm base with over 500 stations with LTN taking up only 0.05ms update time.
