Re: Bots versus Belts

Kinda not inline with the theme of Factorio. Having bots suddenly turn against you would be kinda infuriating when you are just trying to expand your factory. There are other games where random events suddenly putting you in a tricky situation are more the norm. I wasn't talking about random events...

The factorio devs would hunt it down to fix the bug. ;)
If that's the case then I'd love to see killer undead robots as a faction. Few games handle rampancy well, and I don't think Factorio can handle the subject with the care it needs.

Semi-random thought. What would a robot do if it suddenly discovered that it was malfunctioning?

Re: Bots versus Belts

So perhaps some kinda base that has gone rampant then? Maybe that's why the buggies have a seemingly instinctual fear of your base.

If you want to save a little bit on resources you can use stone bricks instead of concrete if you're just going to pick it up anyways.

Re: how do I switch between accumulator and steam/coal based machine?

Actually you don’t need the combinator for this to work. In that example the combinator is changing the “A” signal to “GREEN”. Simply eliminate the combinator and set the switch to operate when “A” < n (where n is your threshold). Hmm, i guess so huh. I use the green signal for other things so I di...

Re: how do I switch between accumulator and steam/coal based machine?

Your copper wires attaching to the power switch is going to be part of what makes this whole thing work. Could be part of what's giving you so much trouble. hmmmm, so something like this? (not sure if you can see it, but there is copper cable connecting from main to switcher) Screenshot (1290)_LI.j...

Boilers are still unwireable in vanilla 1.0. But jeez, what version are you using!? That boiler design is ancient!
32-bit, so 14.23 or something.

Just make sure the Accumulator you're using for the signal isn't on the boiler's power grid.

In what order do inserters unload the cargo of chests if multiple items are held in a single chest? Is it the item slot furthest down (aka most recent)?

If the OP is so inclined, they could get creative with griefing (not my cup of tea, but each to their own) That is terrible advice.
