Re: Command Line blueprint-storage.dat Export

I've written a tool to decode the blueprint-storage.dat format into JSON and from there into the standard import/export string. If you are using Linux you can give it a try: https://github.com/asheiduk/factorio-blueprint-decoder Unfortunately, this tool didn't work for me. Any existing alternatives...

Re: Kovarex Enrichment | Inserters

A way to reduce the overfilling of the centrifuges without circuit logic was discussed here:

viewtopic.php?p=554977#p554977

It's a way to get Kovarex off the ground but has reduced performance in the long run.

The followup-posts explain the timing.

Re: Apple x86 is dead - are there plans for Factorio ARM64?

I don't understand that: Mac@@x64 is actually supported. That should include most of the notarization, build scripts, ... So the jump to Mac@arm doesn't seem so far when ARM is already supported too.

Re: UPS Optimized Green Circuits 45/s

Do you have any reading tips what "UPS-optimized transport belts" means? Do you try to have the least amount of "overground" belts? If so, could this not be even more optimized by introducing further underground belts on the top part, e.g., for the green circuit or copper belts?...

Re: 100% efficient payment process

Incoming SEPA transfers usually cost money for non-physical entities such as businesses, at least in Germany. But I don't believe that the fee is 5€ per transfer -- even for business. SEPA was introduced to reduce the international fees within the EU. The rule of thumb announced was: A SEPA transfe...

Re: Military Requirements for Success

I think it is OK as it is. Especially for the time-bases achievements I see this as a slight nudge to THINK about some more parameters and possibilities instead of just doing the last game over and over again -- just faster. Otherwise everyone will just play the default mode :-) Another thought: The...

Re: [1.1.60] Can't import longer blueprint strings

Note, too, v1.1 of the game can only import strings made as of v0.18 or later. To get older strings, you need to setup a version of the game old enough to import it, and then progressively update it one or two major versions at a time until you are at 0.18 before you can make the final jump to v1.1...

I can see one more "Crude Drop Off" in the north.

You can get a better overview yourself: Go into the "Train" dialog (key "O"), select "Stations" tab and filter for "Crude Drop Off".
