My rail based mega factory after 1000 hours.

Started this factory with the release of 0.15 and kept building it since, updating it with the release of 0.16 and again with the release of 0.17. Heavily rail based with well over a thousand trains moving everything around between production areas. No logistics bot or construction bots (except for ...

Sorry, forgot about this topic. Did check my drivers and everything was up to date. Seem to have solved the issue though, it never crashed if I had a movie playing and that always kept the laptop from turning off the screen. Disabled turning off the screen in power saving and haven't had a crash sin...

Use bots to disassemble trains?

Those of us with rail based mega factorys know the pain of having to manually disassemble dozens or even hundreds of trains. It is a long and tedious process. Construction bots can build and dismantle nearly everything else, why not trains? Dismantled my old barrel based refinery and now I have all ...

Re: Thoughts on possible large scale refinery layout?

If you are interested, I already have a rail based depot design being used with iron plates and copper plates. Smelting is done at my ore fields directly into 64 car trains. They deliver these to a redistribution center on the outskirts of my factory so that trains with 4, 8, 16, and 32 cars can tak...

Re: Thoughts on possible large scale refinery layout?

64 car train into the depot and smaller out because the depots are mostly just centers to redistribute between the big and small trains. 64 car trains because the oil train will be 64 cars with 10 refineries per car for 640 refineries. As such the trains removing the lt, hvy, and pg will also be 64 ...

If you don't like bots, why not avoid using them?
There is no right or wrong way to play. Thus no need to change them.

I have over 2000 hours in the game, 700 in my current factory. I have never used logistics bots.

I've gotten into the habit of carrying around a cargo wagon or two.
Will sometimes place one on a track to block trains from passing while working.

Re: Rail blocking equipment

Cool idea and would certainly take the risk out of being run down by trains when working on a line. Although I must admit I kinda enjoy the risk. People say biters add to the challenge, but personally I think the trains are a bit sneakier. They seem to sit watching and waiting for the right moment t...

Re: Trains ignore stop if wait condition already met

What about the "wait x seconds" condition? The train still comes to a stop and leaves. An alternative way to think of this is to use stations as way points, since there is nothing in the game to serve that functionality yet. In my current refinery design, I have 13 separate small refineries that ar...

Re: Personal train

Seems kinda over complicated to me. But factorio is all about that sorta thing :P I have a 1-1 train that I use for personal transport. There are 'maintenance' areas built all around my factory which are used to park supply trains when I am building or expanding a production area. I just open my map...

Basic 3 way intersection I have used for several factorys.

Re: trains, bridges and improvements to the rail system

I would love, love, love some type of bridge or tunnel. It would certainly make designing my base a heck of a lot easier. I have a rail based mega base. There are over 1000 trains running around in it. Even having it spread out over a 10,000 by 10,000 tile area still results in occasional issues. An...

Re: Re-enable blueprinting in unrevealed but scouted area

Quite an annoying change for anybody that works with large blueprints.

btw, if you're ok with disabling achievements, you can use a console command to zoom out your view beyond the normal range. Allows you to see and thus place blueprints as large as you can imagine. But it's quite laggy.

Thoughts on possible large scale refinery layout?

My rail based mega base outgrew it's belt based refinery so I made a new larger refinery, which ended up being too small. Made a 3rd one, which is rail based but unsuccessful. Trains are too small and thus need to travel too often and get in each others way at intersections. It works without deadloc...

Any way to retrieve RSO settings from existing map?

Had auto generated to 7.5k from spawn with spawning practically turned off, then changed the settings and generated to 10k from spawn for a 20k x 20k map with most ore being over 7k tiles from spawn and large but very sparsely located ore patches (ie, only 4 copper...
