archipelago map

Inspired by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgnB5DKkkQc&t , I thought I'd try to make a similar map, which is attached. Part of the challenge is to complete it without landfill. I'm just starting to play it myself, so let me know if you think it's too easy or too hard.

map-gen-settings.json in single user mode?

I'm trying to generate a map outside the normal UI parameter range, so I renamed the example to map-gen-settings.json and made some changes, but I cannot seem to entice Factorio to recognize that. This is on a Mac with Steam. I've seen reference to this file for server Factorio and I'm starting to w...

Re: [MOD 1.1] Sea Block Pack 0.5.3

Thanks for that explanation. Perhaps another easy one: why does FNEI show me 10 recipes for steam, none of which I have the tech for, but doesn't show the one I can do - Boiler plus water?

Re: [MOD 1.1] Sea Block Pack 0.5.3

I'm new to Sea Block and its various mods and I'm using FNEI to try to understand all what I need to make next. Some recipes show a technology in green and some in red, but some have no technology show like this one: Screen Shot 2021-06-06 at 10.51.47 AM.png What does this mean? It's a recipe that I...

Re: auto-generating blueprints

That's why I said was not trivial. Once that text is filed into a Smalltalk image, it becomes much more readable:

The timestamps in the code are when a method was changed. There is a quite a bit of history available in the browsers.

Re: auto-generating blueprints

I have added the source code as an attachment rather than inline due to size. I guess you understand I meant to say "not exactly". Anyway, let me know if you find this useful

Re: auto-generating blueprints

Sharing the code is doable, but exactly trivial. It's written in Smalltalk (not everyone's favorite language) and making something simple for others to understand and use would take some thinking. What I was looking to do was something between a purely hand-assembled factory and someone else's bluep...

Re: auto-generating blueprints

The part about the existing base was simply a way to generate input to the algorithm, along the lines of: bigBaseEntities ^#( "#('' 1) " #('accumulator' 6019) #('arithmetic-combinator' 75) #('artillery-turret' 18) #('assembling-machine-1' 4) #('assembling-machine-2' 334) #('assembling-mach...

auto-generating blueprints

I've been experimenting with generating blueprints automatically from a list of desired outputs in a period of time. Attached is such a blueprint book. In theory it would build all the entities in my current base in about an hour. Or, probably not in an hour as bottlenecks and other inefficiencies w...

Re: missing connection in blueprint

Thanks, that was the answer (eventually). It wasn't until I had tried that several times that I really understood what was going on with "circuit_id". All's well now.

Re: missing connection in blueprint

How did you create the string? Code external to Factorio (Smalltalk in this case). Uncompressed, it looks like this: {"blueprint":{"icons":[{"signal":{"type":"item","name":"assembling-machine-3"},"index":1}],"entit...

missing connection in blueprint

I'm creating blueprints outside of Factorio and have an oddity I can't figure out. I have entities connected with red and/or green wire. In the example below, a green wire between the two wooden chest does not appear when the string is imported. Any ideas? 0eF7VldtuozAQht/FlytccWwO2jdZVcjAJBkJbGSbdq...

problem is repeatable. no user action at time of error - just factorio running by itself.

no train to transport - strange lengths?

I occasionally get a no train message for train lengths that make no sense to me, like length between 10 and 10 when the real length required is between 5 and 5. What am I missing?
