Re: Caravans

I found the thing that I missed! The UI for the output blended in to FNEI and the other mods that I have running. Now that I can see and change the output names it is much easier.

Re: Caravans

I played a bit more and they are very cool when they are working. They get get walking bonuses on nexalit tiles, which increases the throughput a lot when they pathfind over them. High-speed caravans are a sight to behold! In a grid they work ok if you stick to purely north-south or east-west routes...

Re: Caravans

Some ideas for improving them: * Remove the flip-flop behavior from the code so they don't take/put items from both start/end stations. Make them uni-directional so that they only take from the start station and put into the end station. This makes the stations more usable as warehouses and balances...

Caravans

Does anybody use caravans? They seem like a cool idea, but don't seem to work well at the moment. The cost seems too high compared to their carrying capacity. Pybots are much more flexible (many-chests to many-chests) while caravans are single-outpost to single-outpost. I would like to use them to c...

Re: Anyone else playing with biters?

Yes the curve drops off as the number of nests goes up (nice graph on the wiki page). I wanted to make sure that I could expand off the central area to the east and west before the evo hits 0.21. This is mainly so that I can get Sulfer for rockets before medium biters show up, and also because there...

Re: Anyone else playing with biters?

A bit of an update with some balancing info. Needing to expand east to get access to Sulfer (I can't make it directly from Fawogae without access to the metals for an Atomizer). Currently I've wiped out two medium sized biter villages (maybe 50 nests?) and evolution is on 0.09 already. So this scali...

Re: Anyone else playing with biters?

I've tried with biters a couple of times. What seems to work well is dragging the evolution from pollution and time sliders down to their minimum (it looks like it is off but it is actually a small non-zero value). Leave the evolution from killing bases turned up. This counteracts the extra length o...
