Re: Fastest Water/Fluid Loading/Unloading Station! 104 ticks to load and 105 ticks to unload!

It is a bit slower when unloading due to the storage tanks, 108 ticks and that only if they are completely empty when unloading, it will be worse with half filled tanks for example. The same won't happen with fluid wagons...

This is a compact 46x48 and cheap to make 2x2 Nuclear Reactor.
480W constant/ 489W peak.
Belt fed.
48x46 tiles compact.

Cheap to make (only 68 heat pipes used)!

That means that you should add storage tanks to the mix even if you do not need them just to get a reading!
it is unlikely to change due to CPU use impact.
Well that's a pity, hopefully in the future who knows? Thanks for the answer ptx0.

Re: Reading fluid levels of pipes, liquids shouldn't behave according to the uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics

There is a bit of a catch though, the storage tank itself while it has low liquid resistance it is not zero. .... Or lowering the fluid resistance of storage tanks to a very low value, zero or close to it. The fluid resistance is indeed very high compared with pipes and I thought often to myself: i...

Reading fluid levels of pipes, liquids shouldn't behave according to the uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics

My suggestion is for regular pipes to be able to connect to the circuit network to read their fluid levels like belts do. Currently in vanilla factorio when you want to measure the fluid levels in a pipe system your only option is to connect a storage tank and measure it. There is a bit of a catch t...

Re: Good and easily upgradable early to end game wall defence! Plus Laser - Mine defence!

Idea of mine-cell wall is fresh, however, the Price of 80 con-bots is gianormous. This is simply because i overdid it with the enemies to the point their movement got blocked, i doubt such a thing would happen outside the editor. You won't be getting only behemoth enemies to block the way that easi...

Re: Factorio Vanilla - 2x Single lane blue belt throughput without mods (advanced stuff warning)!

All belts are this way. Yeah i know it's just that in this case it is even more complicated since after a pause in the input a blue belt worth of materials will reach first it's destination (a factory for example), then a red belt worth will be added and finally a yellow belt. It won't be the same ...

I wonder if a different s or off train routing could avoid the spidertrons leading behind.
I used mid road train stops to avoid it afterwards for the spidertrons to catch up without me steering it and worked fine.

Ok version 3 was so different that it would be a shame to not give it it's own space to shine. So "version 3" is up here, hope you like it:

Re: Who needs walls anyway? This... is... Spart....Spidertron!

Your concept is inventive but it also depends heavily on stationary defenses. I tried to protect my base with automated tron patrols only against new biter nests. After manually clearing the defense area with trons, trons would loop fully automated on patrol routes continuously and terminate any ne...
