Objective

This mod is dedicated to the detection of deadlock in train network and their removal.

Let's take an example:

  • a network with 2 train stop, each with a train limit of one (see figure 1)

  • 2 trains, at each station, and a schedule to go to the other station and go back.

Without the mod, the trains are stuck at their station, waiting the other to leave.

With this mod, the deadlock is detected and the trains are allowed to go.

Settings

Two settings exits:

  • a setting to disable the warning message at each deadlock
  • a setting to allow unsafe deadlock breaking (the risk is to have temporary more trains to a station than the train limit)
