Logistic Cargo Wagon

Cargo wagons which can directly request items from, and provide items to, the logistic network. Configure items to request and provide at each station for each logistic cargo wagon, allowing flexibility in unloading on curves, changing train length easily without building infrastructure, and further boost loading and unloading rate through robot speed research.

g Attracting too many biters

- 9 months ago

I have played with this mod for a while. And I find logistic cargo wagons are so appealing to biters. Usually they will ignore cargo wagons. But when logistic ones are in their sight, they just rush to the train and destroy the wagons.
It seems to be some kind of problem as most of the rails between bases are unprotected.

Hah, that's crazy! I bet that's being caused by the "proxy" player entity that rides around in the modded wagons to facilitate the items being requested and provided.

I was already planning on adding an option to remove those entities while the train isn't stopped at a station, which also fixes an issue where robots with an incoming delivery will keep chasing a train if it leaves the station before delivery. Since I suspect that's also causing the wagons to look too tasty to biters, that behavior should probably be the default - I'll see about getting that set up in a new release shortly.

Should be better in 0.16.2, let me know!

Thanks for the quick fix! It works fine now.
