Ok, thanks, gcampono. I just want to be careful not to mess up a good running map for a change.. ;- ) It’s actually the first time i’m trying a medium map (after the upgrade, which i now find surprisingly fantastic ! ). Just about all cities that i do not supply with goods myself have these 25/25 auto goods running either from a steel mill, saw mill or oil ref. They use other mines and wells than the ones i am using myself.
I understand that there’s one simple rule to keep good cargo lines running : use only *one* ore/coal mine, oil well and forest to provide material to the various factories. These ‘auto cargo’ lines however seem to be not restricted to this rule…. F.i. i see two cities being provided with 25/25 ‘auto goods’ from *two* different saw mills. And i want to ship goods from my steel mill to another city but that city is also already provided with 25/25 ‘auto goods’ from *another* steel mill….
I suppose i could just cut them off, they ain’t making me any profit… Although i also wonder what’ll happen if i ignore them, let that city enjoy those ‘auto goods’ and deliver something else on top of that. Maybe they’ll appreciate it and everyone wants to live in that city. ;- )
