Re: Permanent Biter Defense

Are you sure? I've tried it with the latest version of factorio (v. 14) and Foreman and it seems to work. I suspect you're using Factorio 0.12 because they changed how rails work so there is now a different entity for them which the old version can't import.

Re: Train is too vulnerable versus green alien(Big problem!)

Well, I see three solutions to your problem. 1. Play in peaceful-mode If you are annoyed by the combat aspect of the game you can just turn it off. While you still need alien artifacts for research only the biters you attack will be angry. The rest will ignore you as long as they have no contact wit...

Re: Permanent Biter Defense

I'm currently playing a save I call "Apocalypse" in which I use RSO with biter settings maxed out and very low resource settings. The biggest problem is oil at the moment so I build a self-repairing fully laser-powered rail to the next big oil field. I hope this is what you want. I have to...

i can confirm that this is also the case with a double headed train without wagons. A single locomotive is fine.

Re: Robo ports

Wait, you're actually using all 8 ports of a roboport? Are you sure you need all of those ports? In my experience you don't need more than 5 stacks of construction robots in the whole factory. But when you really want to sort the robots you could set up an inserter which takes out all of the robots ...

Re: Illegal copies and youtube

Well, I like what the devs of "Game Dev Tycoon" have done. They made a modified copy of the game and uploaded it on a popular torrent site. The "modification" was that after some time your ingame game would be pirated ingame. People started complaining about how they get no money...

Re: Access normal installation files after steam purchase

Well the version of the website should be the the same as the steam version so I assume that you already have the files :D Just check out C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\ (or C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\SteamApps\ if you're on 64-bit) There you will (hopefully) find the factorio folder. No need to ...

The devs made the server file downloadable for everybody, you can get it on their homepage (it's this little link under the giant yellow button labelled "Try demo") Also have this link if you're too lazy to click your way through the page: https://www.factorio.com/download-headless/stable ...

Re: strange power draw from seperate electric networks

Interesting, if we could figure out how the prioritising works we could have seperated networks for our factorys, so if the main supply falls there is still the "core" network for the serious stuff (don't know what, maybe ammo-production?). I also ask myself what happens with accumulators....

Re: strange power draw from seperate electric networks

Hm, that's indeed strange. I've never seen this before. Could you post some images of the setup and the electric network GUI (which you can access by clicking on a power pole). And what exactly do you mean with 2 seperated networks? Do you have two power poles per solar panel which aren't connected?

Re: Electricity!!!!!

But you can get electricity from Oil! You can turn any sort of oil into Solid Fuel ( https://wiki.factorio.com/index.php?title=Solid_fuel ) Then you can put it into a boiler just like coal. BTW I think it's more efficient to transform the heavy oil to light oil before making solid fuel out of it. Bu...
