Re: Spidertron walking tour / Ore prevalence

I am producing 13k/m copper ore (16k/m copper coil; 13k/m copper plate) and 8.3k/m iron ore (8.3k/m iron plate). Science is running around 77/m. I don't use productivity modules. Does this include the ~5.5-6k iron needed for the steel ? Yes, it does. I'm not booted into windows right now, can't loo...

its a little costly, but I use artillery to uncover large parts of the map.
I've decided to stop using artillery. It's a bit harsh on the aliens.
I still find the spidertron the best way to uncover the map at this point.
It can be dangerous though.

Re: Spidertron walking tour / Ore prevalence

Science (including space science) will require almost as much iron as copper (when not using prod modules). When using prod 3 modules, the balance is heavily shifted towards more iron than copper. Warfare, uses mostly iron (for the ammunitions). So all in all, chances are you'll need more iron than...

Spidertron walking tour / Ore prevalence

So I took a walking tour with my spidertron and on the new areas of the map I uncovered I found: Copper Ore: 936k, 18m, 28m, 17m Total: 64m Iron Ore: 5.5m, 14m, 27m, 13m, 10m, 14m, 19m, 27m, 5.7m Total: 135.2m Stone: 9.5m, 4m, 3.7m, 5.3m, 8.2m, 5.6m Total: 36.3 Coal: 14m, 25m, 26m, 18m, 30m Total: 1...

[1.1.21] Production / Consumption Graph has incorrect labels or colors for some fluids

On the fluids production/consumption screen, either the labels are mixed up,
or the colors are mixed up. Makes it a bit difficult to compare : ) .

[0.18.42] train condition 'passenger present' fails with multiple stations

I have two train stations named 'oil' . A train I use has station settings: Oil / Passenger not present Oil / Passenger present I enter the train, go to 'Oil' (usually the second). The train stops, I get off, the train moves on (normally when there is a single station, the train just waits). The tra...

Re: [0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of resources (enough supply)

The algorithm is broken if particular destinations are ignored. Production should continue, very slowly, even if there were only a very small supply of robots. As it is, using a logistic robot network depends on: - a sufficient supply of roboports - a sufficient supply of materials. - a sufficent su...

Re: [0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of resources (enough supply)

Same game, later on. The game says I have 21k of iron plates available to the logistic robot network. But the radar assembler, gear assemblers, and electric furnaces producing steel do not receive any iron plates. One interesting thing I noticed is that the robots were not taking the iron plates fro...

Re: [0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of resources (enough supply)

I have attached a save file. In this particular case, there are five copper plate passive boxes with plenty of copper plates. I just dumped my personal inventory copper into the two assemblers. The robots started streaming copper plates into my inventory. But the nearby assemblers are not receiving ...

Re: [0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of requestors (low supply)

I and I am thinking you are misunderstanding the issue. The proportions are not an issue, but the fact that some requestor boxes never get any supplies at all. And in the meantime, I can see supplies streaming by to other requestor boxes. These supplies should be going to all requestors in an equita...

Re: [0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of requestors (low supply)

Unfortunately there are no tools to solve this issue.
I cannot set the requestor boxes to only receive 1 or 5 items.

Re: [0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of resources (enough supply)

Unfortunately, I no longer have a saved game showing this.
It has eventually resolved itself.

I don't know how long it takes a new requestor to become visible to the entire network.
But it seems to take longer than expected for the robots to get assigned to deliver to the new requestor.

[0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of resources (enough supply)

In this scenario, I was producing enough copper plates, though not a huge excess. I added some new factories that requested copper plates. Even though the supply of copper plates was available (there were 3 provider chests, probably with about 10-20 available in each), no copper plates would be deli...

[0.18.40] logistic robots: starvation of requestors (low supply)

When there is not enough of a particular resources for all requestors, some requestors will get starved out. For example, at one point I was not producing quite enough copper wire. I watched the logistic robots deliver copper wire to one set of requestors over and over. Other requestors never got an...
