Re: YAFC - Factorio calculator/analyser for modded games

For beacons: Forgot to take in account the amount of modules per beacon, thanks :D (So, now the meaning is "beacon modules") For exception: I wasn't able to reproduce with backspace, but I was able to reproduce with "left arrow", thanks Both are fixed for the next release BTW, I am monitoring issues...

Re: YAFC - Factorio calculator/analyser for modded games

I think the standard should be "compatible with data.raw" Even if it is json so the result will be {raw:{item:{"electronic-circuit":{...}...}...} So the format would be well-documented on Factorio wiki, and new fields will have well-known names And also the parser could be reused both ways (just swa...

Re: YAFC - Factorio calculator/analyser for modded games

Probably the reason is this looks like a quite simple task while it actually not at all because mods are relying on every implementation detail there is and crash when it changes. However, I think I have advanced one of the fathest. I even have custom Lua build that emulates changes to Factorio next...

YAFC - Factorio calculator/analyser for modded games

After playing a bunch of Pyanodon and struggling with its deeply recursive recipes when Helmod were not enough, I have decided to make my own calculator / analyser tool. As usual it took a lot longer than expected (almost 2 months) but it was a lot of fun! https://github.com/ShadowTheAge/yafc/raw/ma...

Re: [0.14] Scenario: Build a rocket-launching base on a platform

1. They were intended as an option to feed boilers. I decided to not add additional items for the 0.14 version, but this feedback is helpful for the future 0.15 version. I also think I will add accumulators. to help covering energy consumption spikes. 2. This is a bug, and it has broken on a newer v...

WOW you have a lot of free space for such a good score.

Re: [0.14] Scenario: Build a rocket-launching base on a platform

Yeah, I have screwed up the calculation of oil, forgot to factor in solid fuel requirements :( I don't know what is better - leave it as-is to keep previous scores actual, or change to make a tiny chance of sub-hour possibility This will be definitely fixed for 0.15 - maybe with platform increase to...

[0.14] Scenario: Build a rocket-launching base on a platform

Ouch! You are trapped in a some sort of factorissimo building! The only way out is to build a rocket to blow the ceiling, but the space is very limited! Not only so, you also need to launch it fully automatically, including smelting, power and satellite building, without manual help. When the rocke...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Unstable ground

Try this altered version Here you can build concrete over tiles other then stone and water but you can't build buildings over concrete It is not very flavourful (why can't you build over concrete?) so I am not making this version as master. Maybe I will add this as option. But I need to test it prop...

Re: Friday Facts #137 - The release scarecrow

I dislike the inserter nerf 1. I often use a lot of trains on a same station that supply different resources. So I need to unload them with smart inserters (to filter items). Now - very slow. 2. I often make "manufactures" where I produce complex component from simple input by transfering intermedia...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Unstable ground

Hello everyone! Thanks for your feedback! The idea of the mod is to enforce some base building restrictions on a player as an additional challenge, and not just to increase building cost by forcing him to place stone/concrete underneath. I like challenges (if that's not time challenges) and that is ...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Unstable ground

You can place concrete over platforms only
It is restrictive. But you have infinite space to explore and platforms to build on.
It is even okay with bob's mods (which has three times longer production chains)

You just need to specialize your bases and move components with belts (and later trains)

Re: Merge both railway signals into one

The entire track wouldn't turn red, but the signal ahead the train would (if there are other exits) The track would be usable by other trains that don't intend to go to that station By doing this you tell all the trains that you don't want any train to stop at this segment. That is correct if it is ...
