Ghosts for things where you do not have the material still fills the construction queue and they will regularly be checked postponing other construction jobs, so that will likely cause delays when you place new blueprints.
Good to know. Thank you

Re: Size of logistic networks

My whole base is completely covered in city blocks, so leaving 1 gap between 2 logistic networks would make it difficult to build the train tracks. By now I've only seen logistic networks split at the edge of the base. And therefore it was no issue to them. But that's a minor thing At the moment the...

Size of logistic networks

Hello, in my megabase the size of the logistic network became so big, that it takes forever until the robots build, what I want them to build. So I guess it'd be better to make several smaller logistic networks, where there are chests at the border, that provide building material (such as belts, sol...

Hub City - a 1.8k science belt based base

Hello, I produce 1.8k science and my old pc is at its limit. When everythings running I have about 30 to 40 UPS. So I will end this game now. The basic idea: Building 4 average sized belt bases, that lead to 1 center, where the rockets are sent to space, and the labs are located This is my second sa...

Re: Self-Made Belt Balancers

Damn, those little things are even more complicated than I've thought. Are there some kind of "rules" that you need to remember? Like "no 'decreasing' splitter with loop input without any extra"? This should work, too, right? 3-to-1-throughput.jpg The example in the wiki (https://wiki.factorio.com/B...

Re: Self-Made Belt Balancers

If you want a balancer that works in every combination of input and output, no questions asked, for example a 4 to 4 that can be used as anything up to 4 to 4 and balance correctly, you basically need to build an 8 by 8 balancer, and have each output splitter have 1 standard output and 1 loopback, ...

Re: Self-Made Belt Balancers

I don't think you should put output priority on a balancer. That just unbalances everything. Of course you get less throughput without output priority. But only for a few seconds until the looping belt is full. And then it works as it should. A balancer is for balancing in the first place. Throughpu...

Re: Self-Made Belt Balancers

Both balancers are correct. The first one can be improved (with a fun twist). The first one will work correctly even without the self-looping parts and will then essentially be a perfect 1-4-to-1-4 balancer, that is it'll work regardless of how many and which inputs and outputs are used; it's equiv...

Self-Made Belt Balancers

Hello, I know there are millions of belt balancer blueprints out there, but I like to build them myself. By now I've just copied the 4-to-4, the 8-to-8 and the 6-to-6 balancer. But the rest I want to develop myself. As far as I've understood you always build a 4-to-4 or a 8-to-8 (or a 4-to-2, or a 4...

pew. 34 pages are a lot. But I haven't found the one I was building on the first page. Ive struggled with building a non-roundabout intersection within 1 city block, where 1-4 trains are able to wait between 2 train signals. And I came up with this beautiful flower: train-intersection.jpg It's compa...

Re: Efficiency Module Scaling

Hello, My suggestion: - Efficiency 1: -30% so we're able to get miners to 20% - Efficiency 2: Should be able to bring an assembly machine to 20% power consumption in a 3:1 ratio. A productivity module 3 needs +80% power. So an Efficiency module 2 should have -60% (100% + 80% - 3 * 60% = 0% and then ...

Re: Trains all go to the same station

Thank you. I'll keep that in mind, if I have issues later. But my solution seems to work fine. I've checked it for a few minutes now and there were no problems. Now I can open new stations and I know that trains will go there

Thank you very much. But honestly I haven't understood it yet. I'll read your post in the other thread later. But I've come up with my own idea. I read the signal right in front of the station. Then a clock starts running. And as soon as the clock reaches 200 the station gets shut down. Within this ...

Re: Trains all go to the same station

I'm not sure, if I really understood how it works. you mean your trains go to following stations: - holding station - filling station - emptying station Right? They don't do anything at the holding station? Just going there and leaving as soon as a filling station opens? And as soon as a filling sta...

ok. That helped me understand how it works. I've already thought so, even though its more complex. But it's really weird, that even a penalty of 500 for each train makes them all go to the same train station. I already love 1.1. This is gonna be huge. But is there any way to do so with circuits?
