Re: My desperate attempts to clear land

You only mention using laser turrets. The advantage of laser turrets is the simple infrastructure, but if you're already hauling a train around there's not much reason not to slap on a wagon full of uranium ammo and a wagon full of flamethrower feed. A defense based on uranium-firing gun turrets and...

If you don't want to use the highly effective tools the game provides to you for the express purpose of the thing you desire, you shouldn't be complaining about the difficulty of the thing you desire. You are doing it wrong.

Re: Spidertrons need to be damaged by explosions

game needs fast and straightforward method to clear biters in masses at end game Yes, that's called artillery. If it's not fast enough for you, bring more artillery or research more shooting speed. If it doesn't clear enough space, research more range. Or bring more spidertrons. It's trivial to put...

Re: Multiple stations in one track

I'm trying to set a rail path that does not loop but has stations at both ends and stations at mid points, but when i try to set it up, the menu tells me that the only stations avaliable are those at both oposite ends, but not the middle stations. Only one trains runs that route; the tracks crosses...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

For each item you want to request, have a Decider subcircuit with logic [ITEM]<= [THRESHOLD] -> [ITEM @ REQUEST QUANTITY]. Have the input for this be on the chest side of the diode and the output going to the lamp. [ITEM @ REQUEST QUANTITY] is of course whatever you would have put in your Constant ...

Re: Adding a endgame goal that never stops, that forces you to expand and explore constantly.

Infinite research being infinite, there is a 100% guarantee that you'll need to get arbitrarily far to get enough resource before you've seen the end of it. For that, an unlimited amount of biter nests will have to be cleared. Also in doing so, you'll produce an arbitrarily large amount of pollutio...

Re: Make chain signals the norm, and rail signals for experts

OT How about railway pathfinder v2.0 that would be deadlock-resistant? Please don't say it would cost many CPU and RAM, because it would work only on small factories (say, until chain signal technology researched :mrgreen:) Already implemented, direct player control of trains is very deadlock-resis...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

LTN ALWAYS REQUESTS the THRESHOLD AMOUNT (+ extra a few items drop during time to get to issue an order). Incorrect. What happens if the item signal suddenly and massively changes? For example, if we've got a Request Threshold of 1000 and the item signal at the lamp goes from 2000 to -48000? Does i...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

Small edit to my first post, forgot a part of the solution was in my mod configuration settings and thus needs to be explicitly stated. No your circuitry does not do that because there is only 1 threshold in existence on the combinator. There is also its variation called "Stack threshold"....

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

If you do not understand the problem in this thread you can skip it. Now, regarding your "solution". Combinators contraption will not work because the issue is not solvable by sending whatever values of signal into the input. The threshold itself must be different for each item for correc...

Re: Feature Request: Relative Request Threshold Signal

There's no need for additional code, this is trivial to do right now. Set no item requests (negative values) in your Constant Combinator. You'll add them via circuit invididually. Set Request Threshold to 1. Yes, 1. You don't need to do this if you've put the default request threshold to 1 in the mo...
