Re: Using a gaming-mouse for combat (and more)?

Thanks
Do you ever use the C button to aim at a specific enemy instead of space with automatic aiming?
I like to kill those annoying spitters and that often requires to aim at them.

Using a gaming-mouse for combat (and more)?

I am not a hardcore gamer and I never owned a gaming mouse. When I am building with Factorio I am happy with the keyboard/mouse. But for combat I am not happy with the c button or tab button and I don't think changing the mapping will make a difference. I want to keep my fingers on the movement keys...

Is it possible to change the recipe in an assembly machine with the circuit network?

I like to produce big electric poles and medium electric poles automatically and save them in boxes. They both need the same material. Do I need to setup (at least) two assembly machines to produce the different poles? Or is there a possibility to change the recipe in the assembly machine automatica...

Re: Which process needs [insert whatever], i.e. coal

Thanks @Squelch I guess at some time I will look at the source code and the API. It all depends on how much time I want to spend on this. I like it, but sometimes I still have to do my full time job... Information in game is certainly most important. But for beginners like me it is also interesting ...

Re: Which process needs [insert whatever], i.e. coal

To answer my own question I looked at the Wiki, extracted the data, did a little programming, and here is the (until now unfinished) list. The Excel file includes all items which are used in any recipe. It shows in how many recipes the item is used and for what it is used. Samples: - The Accumulator...

Re: How can I block a ghost/blueprint from being constructed?

Thanks for your answers.
Maybe I will do big planning (like i.e. reactor arrays) somewhere far away from the roboport network. Then I can leave the ghost there and maybe improve it over time.
I just finished my first game. Hurrah!

How can I block a ghost/blueprint from being constructed?

I made the layout for 4 reactors with all the turbines, pipes, etc. Then I manually added the parts for 2 reactors. I don't want 4 reactors and lots of extra turbines, etc. in the moment. But when my character, with a portable roboport, comes near that ghost then it starts the construction. How can ...

Re: Simple Kovarex enrichment with one centrifuge – for beginners

Thanks steinio, that looks good. And I guess I will copy your design now that I have enough Uranium to keep four centrifuges busy.
But I am not so sure if your design is simper for people who just start...

Simple Kovarex enrichment with one centrifuge – for beginners

I play Factorio 1.0 since about a week. I read about the Kovarex enrichment in the Wiki but I did not find any simple example. I found many examples with huge arrays of centrifuges, but they are not much help for a beginner. I used the following setup to start with the Kovarex enrichment. A few mini...

Re: Which process needs [insert whatever], i.e. coal

Thanks for all your comments. I will have a look at the mods later. Until now I didn't use any mods and I plan to play at least one game without any mods. I started the game with the smelters and then the bus starts with the plates. I read the main bus article and I saw a video about it and I know t...

Which process needs [insert whatever], i.e. coal

I play the game since almost a week now and I want to decide which items I put on my (main) belts. First I thought I need coal only for smelters. Later I discovered I need it for Plastic and Explosives. This is why I added coal later to my main bus. Now I ask myself if I will need coal later for ano...
