Re: My Factory

Here's the production/consumption tab per minute http://s27.postimg.org/6q3t5ew5b/Screen_Shot_2014_06_24_at_9_12_35_AM.jpg Ive got to re-saturate some of the copper lines.

Re: Adv. circuit - craftingTime rebalancing

I don't think it it a point of difficulty or constraint, though. I think it is a point of credibility - one machine suppling 18(!!) machines just feels "off", nothing more. Creating an automated supply chain does not become more difficult just because you need to place 4 assemblers instead of 1. It...

Re: Adv. circuit - craftingTime rebalancing

I think 8s are appropriate. If you're mass building modules you need indeed lots of adv. circuits assembler - but I find that appropriate. There should be circumstances where a few assemblers aren't enough. As for build times, the most ridiculous are those for accus and solar panels with 0.5 s respe...

Doubled? That would mean 1s of build which is still ridiculously fast. 15s seem to be appropriate to me (same as processing units or capsules).

Sounds

I propose to fade out the factory sounds when you zoom out. Zooming out is for me like stepping back and looking at the brighter picture. Muted factory sounds would be appropriate in that case. Sometimes I zoom in very closely to watch the beauty of my machinery and that's the moment when I want to ...

Re: My somewhat compact T1-4 design

ive noticed the copper wire overcrowding... That is the reason they all have double fast inserters from the copper wire buildings to the green electronics buildings. :) Best thing with copper wires is to insert them directly into the circuit assembler. With stack size upgrades you can keep the circ...

Are you sure? Is it the only change? Doesn't it mean how many biters a spawner spawns or how many biters live within one spawner?

Re: Self sustaining Solar Plant

The trick with solar is that it takes A LOT of space for the same output. My compact fuel based power plant is dwarfed by the space needed for solars(with or without accumulators) needed to produce the same power. The space and ressource requirement is what balances it in the early and midgame. Bec...

Re: Self sustaining Solar Plant

I honestly think solar costs should go way up as their benefit is insane. I personally find them game breaking .... guess I should post this in the balance thread. Well, maybe they are a little bit too cheap, but have you ever tried using them for a big factory? You need TONS of them, as well as sh...

Awesome, really, really awesome. I did not believe you could get it smaller. The train as a kind of super-smart-chest is a really cool thing. I'm curious what other uses there might be.

Re: Compact base

I like the design with targeted production areas but so far you're not producing very much. The oil area is indeed very compact and you're able to produce everyting in it. It's cramped however and you have no tank for light oil which means you won't be able to run the refinery at 100%. It's not expa...

Re: Trying to understand the production numbers

For miners it's complicated and not clear. First of all mining power is not relevant at the moment (maybe it was in prior versions). Every mineable ressource has a mining hardness (which is comparable to the base production time) and iirc it's 0.9 for all mineable materials (iron/copper/stone/coal)...

Negative quantities are not possible so I don't see your point.

Why don't you put the sulfur directly into the sulphuric acid plants? There is no need for a belt I think.

Re: Trying to understand the production numbers

The 5s tab in the production screen is indeed buggy and not displaying correct numbers. I don't know what's the problem but the numbers are always too high. As for the production numbers. For assmblers/furnaces it's quite transparent: Every item has a base production time and every assembler has a b...
