Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Hey guys! :) What would be the cause when the UPS drops to ~40 on fully zoomed out map view while it is steady at 60 in zoomed in map view and normal world view? Too large map or too many chunks where something happens in or what exactly? Do I need to kill all the biters to up the UPS or am I at the...

Re: Personel train transport?

In my games I have taxi train stations with several slots for locos. And I have several taxi locos (allthough I mostly would need only one taxi loco), with all the taxi train stations in their schedule . Eg Example schedule in each taxi locomotive: - [TAXI] Mall - [TAXI] Iron smelting - [TAXI] Coppe...

Recipe for uranium processing does not say how many pieces of uranium-x are the result

Today I noticed for the first time, that imo the ingame recipe for uranium processing is not 100% clear. It states what are the chances for U-238 and U-235 to be the result, but it does not state how many of them. It says, that the input is 10 uranium ore, but on the output side, there are only the...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

does anyone know is electric network ups usage affected by amount of poles/substations in any significant way or its depends mostly on entities using power? AFAIK it is only affected by number of entities. The power network itself only needs to be updated once and the number of poles does not matte...

Re: Why don't forests regenerate over time.

I played a map once with tree spreading. It turned into a jungle base. I used https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Noxys_Trees and recommend it for that trees don't grow on paved tiles with that mod (otherwise they would drive you nuts). And https://mods.factorio.com/mod/CharcoalBurner along with it (you w...

Re: What is more UPS friendly, cut power or insufficient power?

I think I found it. "show-active-state" shows little red circles over entities, which are not in a working state. Studying it, it seems that being cut off vs insufficiently powered makes no difference regarding the state. Also entities which were inactive under power, also stay inactive i...

Re: Map Laser Turret Color Red

If it is going to be changed, I would make it green. From the players view: Green = protective red = dangerous But, ... Wube probably feels that all weapons are dangerous, which I fully support. Therefore, not dropping the educational responsibility and keeping turrets red on the map is ok to me as ...

Re: Even split of remainder

Yes, but that would mean I also could use dedicated trains. Because, what if I just need 250k steam there? That would be 5 trains, not 16. Part of the context is, that all steam supply on the whole map is handled by a lot of 1-2 trains with one name for pickup stations and 1 name for dropoff. Well,...

Re: Even split of remainder

Aha, context is king:) So each station has to have a guaranteed throughput of 3K/s -> 1 train every 16.6 seconds. Correct? No. Each twin station has to have a continuous tp of 6k/s (2 pipes limited at 3k/s). The trains unload from the two twins of a twin station alternatingly (circuit controlled). ...

Re: Even split of remainder

That is off topic, but since I failed to hide the context good enough to not make readers curious :D : All 4 stations feed into the same supply line, which needs 24k steam/s unloaded from 1-2 trains (for 2 GW of power). Each "station" unloads at 6k/s and in reality is a twin unloading sta...

Even split of remainder

I have 4 train unloading stations (S1, ... S4). Equally named to unload the same things. And depending on demand I calculate how many supply trains (T) should go there. As I want to optimize throughput, I am distributing the supply trains to the 4 stations as equal as possible, using the train limit...

[Solved] Are those preferred among equally named stations, which have a higher train limit set?

Are those prioritized among equally named stations, which have a higher train limit set?

Eg. 2 stations with same name, one with a train limit of 2 and the other one with a train limit of 1.
Would the first available train then be sent to the station with the higher train limit?

How far is "far" away? Can you reproduce this and show us a sandbox example? This might be useful for troubleshooting the problem.
