This should be made a sticky.

Suggestions:
Change the color of the arrow?
Red or yellow?

But then again, some people STILL won't get it.

Make a tooltip for it like when you start a new game.

Or a tutorial?

-Thanks

I agree, there should probably be a yellow or red overlay of arrows when the Conveyor Tool is active which is showing which direction a conveyor is going... because it's an ongoing issue.

You what would be awesome?
An animated conveyor with flashing lights that are flashing in the direction the conveyor is going, like the kind of lights that you see at an airport runway or something similar. One pair of lights at one end and another pair of lights on the other(very very small lights of course). And then when you lay it down, the "beginning" pair flash first followed by the "ending" pair.

Just a suggestion. I think would look cool when you have 5 or more of them lined up. Would look like one of those old style news tickers that you see in 1940's movies.

[Bug 1.19 Steam] - Next slot not found!

Postby steviefaux » Mon May 22, 2017 11:35 am

The belt is facing the correct way yet insists that "next slot not found!"

Ignore the fact the belt is then broken when I relay it, that was my mistake. But no amount of removing the belt and relaying it and making sure it's facing the correct way is helping.

Same problem.

I can't connect from the dry finish to the Fit Power Train or Fit Engine

This is not a bug, you laid the path incorrectly.

To be more specific, the T junction splits to the sides while it should be a merge junction.

I think adding an overlay for conveyors at higher zoom levels would help alleviate a lot of the issues people seem to be having with the conveyor directions.
