Hallo! Error msg at the bottom, i tried to remove cargo ship from mods folder and both game (and my current saved game) load ok with 0.17.75. Revert to 0.17.74 and things got back OK. So there are some sort of conflict with the new version of factorio.
This is error msg:
Failed to load mods: entity prototype "curved-rail" (curved-rail) collision mask does not collide with entity "bridge_crossing" (straight-rail). rail collision mask must collide with all other rails.
bridge_crossing modifications: Cargo Ships
Hope you will fix ... or i'll have to stay with 0.74 :(
Man! You and the other guy solved my problem!!!! Big thank you, i can go on with my save with latest patch!!!!
Solution for this problem (thx to the post above mine and to jamiech1 which posted temp solution at the link provided above):
In the water_rails.lua file in the prototypes folder (cargo ship mod) change the collision mask as shown here:
It's a shame that it doesn't also solve the collision issues with Space Exploration's railway. Given my group uses both mods quite substantially, this is one problem we sincerely hope gets resolved. Bridges seem to follow their own rules which causes an incompatibility between the two, though other collision issues might be present.
We'll be patiently waiting on .74 with our oil tankers and space trains for the time being. We'd hate to lose cargo ships over this strict collision requirement.
Thank you Pi-C for responding, but it doesn't show on the map during play time. Was aware of the preview screen limitation. On existing map it all works fine yet doesn't seem to generate on a new map.
Oh well, will wait I guess..... If it does appear will update my post.
SpezEdit: So, I spoke too soon.... Was hasty and apologize for that. It did generate oil patches in the water, outside of my spawn area. Started a new mainly water map to test it out and didn't spawn anyplace could see so assumed..... You know. On map where added it after the fact had to get some new chunks to spawn and now have deep sea oil patches. Thanks for your understanding.
