Re: Compact Belts Factories & Inserters Machine

I would replace some of the provider chests by requester chests. That way you can recycle old stuff.
Nice design. Very tidy.

Re: Tree Crusher Machine. Thoughts?

I abuse the tank as a wood crusher. For clearing I also use grenades, cluster grenades and poison capsules. On one map, I had the robots doing this and bringing the wood to a chest for the boilers.
But I really like your idea :D

Re: train bus factory

I tried a similar way, but not for every item, so i summarized related items. A problem was the oil part. So I decided to make an output for plastic and sulfur (the yellow item, not sure about the exact name atm). But finally I stopped playing this map and decided to wait for the liquid wagon. Well,...

Re: Version 0.14 and map strings from previous versions

Downgrad the game, insert the exchange string, save the map, upgrade game again. Unfortunately, even after saving the new version, the map string will not work for the newer version. so you cannot copy the string from the saved game of the newest game version and start again. The map will be differe...

Well, you are trolling the thread. This is about showing buffer creations. Maybe you should start a new thread to discuss the pro and cons or the need and no-need of buffers.

Re: Belt buffers

I am doing a lot of experimenting with buffers. First I took this one, which worked quiet well: http://i.imgur.com/P1XWn88.png But with more loads that quickly became too small. So I experimented with two belt buffers and stayed with the next buffer, that can handle quiet a load but still is not per...

Play the demo and if you think that this is one of the best games ever, like I do (about 700 hours played already), then buy it. If not, don't.

Re: Let's see your clever builds

https://gyazo.com/0a0e05918baacbebd89a37fc0c949e21 I have found that the biters don't really know what they are doing when stepping upon a transporter belt.. So for the time being, this is my best defense against a melee biter attack. For spitters you could add a belt in a circle around the turret....

Re: CELLS - grid modules Prototype

Wow thx for the insight! I really like how you simplified everything! - no pipes but specialized liquid cells - no resource/product separation though I see some cloggs due to unequal distribution on the top side but who cares, its working - love your science sub module Thanks, still there are thing...

Re: CELLS - grid modules Prototype

@Gertibrumm Ok, here it is. But keep in mind that there are lots of things under construction. The furnaces need a redesign because I am getting out of space there. Also, the cell system needs to be extended esp for the module part. But I hope you have fun with it and find what you are looking for :D

Re: CELLS - grid modules Prototype

I am working now on another approach to this style. I refuse to let pipes run along with the cells, because it is just annoying to walk there. So I decided to make different regions. Here is stuff that needs lubricant, here goes plastic. This works quiet well as the items distribute quiet equal acro...

Re: Surviving While Idle

well you could mix some stuff. do flamethrower turrets, laser turrets, walls. I am not sure if it still works, but you could also use fast belts, in front of your walls, so that will slow down your enemies. maybe you could show a screenshot before and after overnight :D

Re: Factorio Roadmap for 0.15 + 0.16

The other thing that may need considering is the "teleportation of items" - personally I wouldn't use this strategy as it's tedious and expensive but you can insert an item into one end of a chest and take it out of the other almost immediately. In this manner Cargo Wagons can currently be used to ...
