Docking and undocking

Post by Yaab »

Some of my Cargo TFs reach their destinations, dock and start unloading, but I have several others that reach their destinations, don't dock and unload. All the TFs are well below port docking limits. How do I ensure that all TFs first dock and then unload? Right now I have to dock some of the manually, which is tedious.

I don't know the answer, but I'm very interested to hear it as well. [:)]

I knew I remembered something about this topic, unfortunately it was wrong!

Actually, it is coded to not automatically dock if the port size is too small (<4), here's link to the relevant post:

It's level 1 & 2 ports where autodocking does not happen for ALL TFs(silly & useless but unfortunately still in the code).

And as I mentioned in the other thread TFs also seem to undock even if docked the turn before because of a high/max detection level, at least I think that is because of the detection level, unfortunately Don didn't answer.

When permission to dock is denied try a few more vodka and watermelon shooters.
