Selective Determination of Accepted Cargo

Post by Rtiger99 » 04 Sep 2018 23:01

Is it feasible to forcibly determine what cargo stations, docks, and bays accept? I tend to make trains that carry a multitude of cargo types and can never figure out how to have the train unload 1 cargo type, without reloading that same cargo or just unloading everything, at a station that doesn't accept that type of cargo.

Important Note: I joined the forums minutes before this post and I started playing the game this week. There are many things I do not know as of yet.

i would suggest to use "cargo distribution" for that kind of setup. the cargo will figure out by itself whether it wants to leave the vehicle or not.
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)

I suggest you to use JGR's patchpack, which has specific orders allowing for unloading one cargo type only.
