Symmetrical Diagonal Rail Tram Stops 1.0.1

Need a branching rail tram system? This is the mod for you.

  1. DraikNova
    Simply adds rusty and composite rail tram stops with diagonally placed wiring points, so that you can put rail switches next to them for easy intersections. Basically like Enhanced Rails' diagonal rail tram stops (which these are based on), but symmetrical and with a rusty version.

    In addition, here's how to use these stops to make an intersection for your rail tram system:
    First, just place your rail tram stops down where you want, and wire them up normally (with the middle input node being connected to a button, and the upper input and output nodes each being linked to another rail tram stop's input/output nodes so that all rail tram stops in the network are connected this way).

    Then, you'll need rail switches, persistent switches and rail sensors. At your middle stop, you put the rail switches directly besides it. 10 blocks further away from the rail switches, you put rail sensors (so make sure there are 9 blocks between them). You put the persistent switches somewhere, it doesn't matter where exactly, but you'll be using one persistent switch for each direction. The output of each persistent switch should be attached to the corresponding direction's rail switch, and its set (the upper input) should be attached to all buttons for rail trams in that direction of the network. You should also hook up the buttons for each direction to the reset (lower input) of the persistent switches of all other directions. You hook up each direction's rail sensor to the reset of the persistent switch of that side (this is optional but helps prevent issues as far as I can tell) and to the rail switch of that direction. Net result: persistent switch/button system opens a direction for access when you want a tram to go that way, and rail sensors open a direction for access when a rail tram is approaching from that direction.

    Now, you still need to be able to access all directions when moving from the middle stop when you're in it. To solve this, just add a motion sensor close to the middle stop and hook it up to all rail switches.
