    How do you insert a payload train pathway point midway?

    I need to insert path points midway in the path for my payload bombcart path, but when I clone the points midpathway, it just adds a new point that is numbered off the last path point. Does anyone know how to insert a payload path point?

    That doesn't really help his problem since I'm guessing he's already using that.

    Basically, go ahead and shift-drag the points you want, then go into the entity settings and set the next stop path_track so they're correct.

    Yeah, the problem is I already deployed like 240 points, and now I find that I have to add some around point 150. So I'm going to have to rename the last 90 points or so. That's a lot of work just to insert 3 or 4 points.

    Nonono, just copy the one in the middle (say 150) and name it 241 and set the one before it (149?) to stop at 241 next, then set the 241 point to stop at 150 next. Then make sure that 240 doesn't try to go to 241.

    If you look at the orange connection lines you would see that the new cloned points are properly connected despite being numbered out of order. ;)
