Carousel Production line

Postby Burninwolf » Mon Nov 20, 2017 1:42 am

After watching cliffski's latest video thought I would try the carousel line which seems to be very broken. A car will go round and enter random stations no matter what stage it is at.

Is this normal because the latest update is not out or is this just a bug? I have tried this on mutiple different missions as well as different stages. This also happens without stages being broken down.

I also tried this, and had car stuck in a "Fit Engine" loop, curious as to if it's cause the new version wasn't released at the time.

I think even on the video something went wrong because I'm sure I saw cars going into places in the wrong order.

The Carousel Production is totally broken.

A simple way to reproduce the bugs (like the following picture).

Image

    1. Make a Carousel
    2. Make 1 incomming lane and 1 outgoing lane
    3. Make a Fit Bodyframe, Fit Roof and Fit Doors station
    4. The cars that have already been at Fit Roof will goto Fit Roof again

If a car is partially made (have been to either Fit Bodyframe or Fit Roof) it will goto Fit Body if the slot is open. This makes sense.

Remember that Fit Bodyframe can be divided into more stations. Much rework and balancing is needed before Carousel Production is possible, like Cliff said. It would take a systematic overhaul to make it good.

Dear Cliff, if you are reading this, please do the overhaul; it would mean a lot. Thanks for great game!

I think the problem is that a car will never *avoid* a lot, or worry if it goers down the wrong route, as long as that route does actually take it to where it wants to go. In other words, cars can sit in a queue behind stuff doing task A, if its already done A, but its route suggests it can get to B through this route. I'll have to find time to give it another look.
