Re: Bob mods for 0.12 General Topic.

I think my only "general" complaint about Bobs mods is that in the (laudible) drive for complexity and depth, for most items the need for "throughput" is gone. Once you have 2000 or so of any of the non-basic-tier metals, you are set for the rest of the game almost. You build all...

Re: Supression of the size shift of electric furnaces

I think the size difference issue introduces fun optimatisation / trade-off gameplay and is only truly problematic to a very specific factory design (split coal/ore belt and didnt leave any extra space). If you are a good enough player to have left enough space for late-game furnace volume needs, yo...

Re: [0.12.x][v0.12.10] Bob's Metals, Chemicals and Intermediates

Bob, I have a late-game / finished high throughput factory including all your mods. I have noticed a consistent (at all phases of game and sizes of factory) shortage of chlorine that cannot be automated away through additional salt-water electroloysis because of the enormous excess of sodium hydroxi...

Re: Clearer visual indicators of activity

A very obvious "activity" light in the same place on every 3x3 building (red yellow green with yellow as waiting for ingredients and green as active) would be a huge quality of life change.

Re: add a directional arrow on the screen when placing a belt

This would make a big difference to me, as its often nearly impossible to tell the direction of faster belts at anything but the closest zoom difference.

Can be used also for the whole logistic stuff, combinator stuff etc.

I quite like this as it fits with, e.g., placing inventory-held robots.

Suggestion: Seperate use of personal and networked robots

Problem use case - you want to deconstruct a nice tureet/wall/pylon bastion and return it to your inventory for reuse, so you mark it for deconstruction. Half the buildings end up being picked up by non-personal, networked robots and taken to your central storage depot. Problem use case - you want t...

Re: So what's after the campaign?

Most people dont bother with the campaign at all - 60% of the fun is trying to launch the rocket starting from scratch on a custom game. The remaining 40% is doing the same with a tonne of mods (especially something like Bobs, Dytech or Marathon that make it much harder).

Wall doesnt work vs spitters.

50% shorter range than lasers is what makes turrets obsolete. Nothing less, nothing more.

Re: On the doubled damage of turrets

This is pretty low on the list of combat-related balancing for me. There's plenty of other even more OP tactics and approaches.

I'd wait for a complete combat overhaul to look at this.

Only introduce this AFTER they are better balanced.

Re: Making trains and robots more needed

General consensus is BOTS are overpowered, not belts.

A nerf to belts is not needed to give trains a need - merely changing resource spawning does that (see RSO mod which makes trains essential and completely resolves that part of the problem).

Re: Anyone else think alien artifacts give too much science?

If it was up to me I'd create a whole new, manufactured recipe for purple science which doesnt include alien artifacts, and instead use alien artifacts only for crafting particular, high end power armor, weapons and maybe rocket parts.

How about that to deal with 3 overpowered strategies at once: Accumulators/Laser Turrets/Robots deteriorate their batteries and every now and then they have to be swapped with a new one. The deterioration of a battery could be similar to how repair packs/ammunition works with a progress bar and wit...
