Hi Locomotors.

Im trying to figure out how to place industry tiles in a straight line.
The windmill shows me how to allways face a single direction. But not in a straight line.
It would make placement of my container ship a lot easier.
I tried all the different bits shown in the variables list. I think.
But if anyone knows its yous guys right? So here I am :D

Thanks to tt-forum for keeping old threads and helping me this far.

There is a trick using roads (in scenario editor) or rail (during a playable game). What most people do is place the road in such a way that the only spaces for the industry to be placed is between the road/rail.

Where - = road/rail and + = Your industry tile. That's the best example I can give without trawling through all my old scenarios. If you have free time, look up the serpent map by zimmlock, I sort of remember that some of the industries are placed in strips like you want.

Edit: I just realised you may be wanting to know if there is code way of making it be in one line, to that I am not sure of. The method I described is mainly used to help with catchment areas for industries.

No problems. It certainly helps with lining up industries to get the most out of a map or have a certain look to the placement.

Thanks m8. You can get them @ mixen.dk for now. But remember its W.I.P.
The ship is made of 2 oilrigs. One should edit what is produced to ones needs before play. For both front and back of the ship (001 & 002).
right now its produces Steel and Paper.

What are the containers classed as? (Building, Station, Docks?)

I only ask as I'm curious and want to see how they would fit in (in the scenario editor) to the game.

Are you open to suggestions as to making improvements (in ways to reduce building spam to make functional container yards).
