Re: Multi-purpose flexible factory setup

Odd that it would overproduce anything - the factory seems to monitor stock, and it would be easy to stop unloading copper cable if it begins backing up in the chests. Perhaps the placement problems also caused a cabling problem with the combinators and there was an error reconnecting them later? Or...

Re: Wizartorio: Magic in your Factory

I don't know if I like the mixing of concepts, but I would like to see a complete, total conversion to a magical based factory - some type of magical conduit instead of belts, trains being made into a more magical variant, (Self-driving carriages? Blasphemy.) artifice for what can;t easily be magick...

But what about the oxygen :o! Nevermind. It's nice to see an alternative where the oxygen is automatically emptied for a little bit simpler build ;)!

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Belt hoppers 1.0.1

Just as an FYI, per the changes coming to the circuit network, any chest will be connectable to the circuit network, and being just a smart steel chest, the smart chest is going away in 13.x. It's listed in the changes stated here: https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-138 Just mentioning it becaus...

Re: Combinators 101

I've never found a tutorial more enlightening than just hooking up random bits and pieces with a single pole somewhere, and watching what the signals do. Nobody's explanations were more useful than poking and prodding, though some usage examples were helpful.

Re: Combinators 101

So I would have to have a smart chest with all but one slot blocked, and have the inserter run only when the 'anything' signal is >1, and then load into a second smart chest. Hum. Messy.

Re: Combinators 101

I am only beginning to wrap my head around combinators . . . but I'm trying to use them for a specific task right now, and am having trouble. Is it possible to use a combinator to tell a smart inserter to ONLY insert an object type that is ALREADY in a chest? No matter what that item type is? This w...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Left-Right Load Balancer

Sorry. I didn't come back to check on these, though I did try them out. They do seem to pull from both sides of the input when only one output is being utilized. The vanilla solution is this: https://forums.factorio.com/download/file.php?id=10442 This allows only one output to be used, but utilizes ...

I'm liking these, so far. They do one thing, excellently, without a lot of fancy dongles and wingwangs that the author likes, and released with it. One thing I wanted to mention. One of the developer's posts about possible plans for the future mentioned a 'heavy loader' which would use the loader bo...

Re: [MOD 0.12.11] SRS, an end game challenge

If you're interested, that's based on an old tech document that I typed up a few weeks ago. I get game design ideas, and scribble them down - this one was an idea regarding a time-management game, but SRS reminded me of it, and it would suit factorio well. The google doc is here . It may help you if...

Huh, that's interesting. I actually have a lot of the same ideas as this mod's creator, for my own "Factorio Gaiden" mod-in-the-works. The burner generator is actually borrowed from KS's power mods. If you want to use that without losing the burner inserter, you can grab KS Power . Commenting out a...

Re: Refactorio 0.0.1

I agree with many comments here. I would not say the mod is worthless, but I would say it is broken. I would never use a mod that made it harder to automate any aspect of factorio, especially something as important as recovery from critical failures. Let me give you an example. A train supplies coal...

I would actually prefer something more unpredictable. For instance, pretend there is a war going on somewhere that needs these resources, and demands certain things from you. This war is never won nor lost, but your allies' effectiveness can be represented as a percentage that you have to maintain b...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Left-Right Load Balancer

Here's a question. Does this balance input, too? If I have units pulling from only one side of the belt, it often backs up some of production, leading some mines to be overutilized and others to sit idle. There is a belt solution to that issue to force uneven output to utilize input evenly. Does thi...
