Re: Should Construction Robots Prioritze Storage Chests ?

On my ideal game, bots never fly long distances to pick materials to build something: there are materials near the construction site, usually delivered by train (and viceversa, bots place deconstructed materials into nearby chests, then delivered back to main storage by train). That works for whate...

Should "Wire Shortcuts" be in the Base game ?

There is a mod called "wire shortcuts" it ads shortcuts for red and green wire. Why isnt it in the basegame ? I can't see any downside, and crafting them is inconsistent and unintuitive for new players considering you get them for free if you copy settings. Its just pure QoL, without chang...

Re: More Realistic Biter behavior by small changes

You obviously haven't seen what animals are capable of on our own planet. Yes, this is completely within the realm of possibility. Aside from that, so what? So the pollution irritates them from far away, they come, then they identify the actual polluter and go after it. Is this functionally any dif...

Re: Should Construction Robots Prioritze Storage Chests ?

Currently, construction bots try to find the chest that is the closest to the ghost they want to rebuild. Idea is, that players want to bluprints to be built fast, so construction robots shouldn't travel over large distances (system that manages this is still pretty simple, though, so it's not that...

Re: More Realistic Biter behavior by small changes

They do attack everything while aggro'd, but they prioritize military and polluters, first. They will even sometimes attack things unaggro'd if it's too close to their base. But it should be noted: biters are not the invader. The player is. As such, it's (almost) possible to live in harmony beside ...

More Realistic Biter behavior by small changes

Biters should attack everything, exept rails/ tiles. To me, it took a whille till i realized that biters path thier way to millitary structures (like radars) or strong poluting Structures (like coal boilers). They wont traget a robobort on their own. only if it blocks thier way, or is close while t...

Re: Should Construction Robots Prioritze Storage Chests ?

You could also read the logistic network, and enable/disable your infrastructure building assembling machines (or rather the inserters feeding them) if the logistic storage is over a certain threshold. You would still not be able to deconstruct more than your storage's size, but you wouldn't build ...

An Option, to better "Plan" a Factory on the map ?

Should Construction Robots Prioritze Storage Chests ?

I just saw, that Construction bots don't prioritze buildings from storage chests before passive provider chests. Should they ? We all know that logistic bots prioritze them, what is great. Wouldnt it be nice, if buildings like belts/inserters or even reactors staying in the storage chests would also...
