Trade Depots and Trade Port not working

★★★★ Novice

Hi,

 

I made a city yesterday and managed to get it working great. Got 67mill in my bank.

I have 6 trade depots and a trade port.

 

I mine coal and ore, using smelting factory to make metal and alloy

Using the alloy together with plastic to create Processors and in the end TV's and computers.

 

I saved the game and just got home from work today and wanted to play some more.

To my big surprise all my trade depots and trade port stopped sending out trucks.. They work fine, just not sending trucks.

They receive everything until they are full but not moving anything around inside my city.

 

To test i created a new trade port which is working perfectly.

 

I had a similar problem in another city, with the recycling center. To fix that problem i destroyed both recycling centers and created new ones.

I am pretty sure that would work here too. It just irritates me that i need to do that.

 

I really hope you can fix that issue.

 

Best Regards

Andreas

Thanks for your report, we are investigating the trade vehicles stopping.

 

In your trade depot do you have it set to Export the stock?

If either of you get a chance could you do a quick video and link to it?

You can press V in game to record or use Fraps etc, whatever works best for you.

I had the SAME issue last night. 2 smelting factories, with two full trade depots, and an ore min across the street, and they were constantly out of ore.

One step closer to just giving up... 

 

 

Import, export, use locally, it didn't matter. Tons and tons of ore on the same street - and none was making ot to the smelters.

Hi Bazajaytee,

 

I have some trade depot that are exporting and that works fine. External truck come and pickup stuff.

What doesn't work is the local trucks.

 

They simply doesn't move all my goods around. So my coal power plant stops

My processor plant doesn't get plastic, though I have about 16000 crates in my city

 

I just created a new subdomain for this, so it could take some time for it to work.

But I have just uploaded a movie.

I hope this helps!

Delivery trucks not working is what's keeping me from playing the game, waiting until a patch for it comes out.

I'm having the same issue...quite irritating.  Depots fill up, never unloads.  All the trucks stay in their garage.  Never had this issue until last upgrade.  

 

Also irritated with the tourism not working right...but that's another topic.
