I just bought and downloaded the alpha after watching a couple of video’s online and tried making a production line myself, but failed completely because conveyor belts just wouldn’t work at all. ran out of money trying to find ways around it and ran into crippling problems on the 2nd try as well.
problems included cars not wanting to enter into yards, not wanting to leave yards, conveyor belts not connecting to each other properly and even stacking on top of one another, meaning I could delete multiple copies at the same spot. at some point I even managed to have both conveyor belts and the demolish feature selected at the same time, meaning I could click, spend money and not much would really happen.
for example, consider this:
there is clearly space for both factories to output the cars but both factories show the string ‘waiting for line’ instead of doing something. not matter what I try and how I place any of the conveyors it just won’t output them. deleting the yard and replacing it does nothing.
you can also see near the top that the conveyor doesn’t visually connect properly. I can’t fix that by replacing conveyors and only deleting has a chance of fixing it.
I know it’s an alpha and all, but watching the videos made with 1.01 not having this issue at all is surely frustrating.
