Re: bigger chest 2xN size (for railway blueprints) or long-handed stacker inserter.

If you set stations where cars stops diagonally you would be surprisingly find it is possible. Try it. Also worth to mention. One side can have 6 inserters up to 12 items in stack maximum. Or 12 long inserters up to 3 items in stack maximum, which is only half less. Speed is also lower of course. I...

Re: bigger chest 2xN size (for railway blueprints) or long-handed stacker inserter.

The use case for Vanilla would be marginal... and probably most Megabases use mods. Ehm, no? It's a totally different challenge to build megabases with mods. I'm (with a friend) at the moment involved in building one in vanilla. Besides, again, an additional chest isn't very complex, and it won't r...

Re: bigger chest 2xN size (for railway blueprints) or long-handed stacker inserter.

Trains/tanks in train stations have never been a necessity. It' perfectly doable to unload a train into 1 tile chests with stack inserters. Your use case is extremely specific, and the issues you face are the consequence of a design decision. A such, I think you should address your need with mods, ...

Re: Friday Facts #361 - Train stop limit, Tips and tricks

Just wanted to say that we really, really, really wait for 1.1 availability. We're struggling so much while waiting... P.S. Also add the simple 2x1 sized chest to vanilla already! It's a paint to use cars (manually! no blueprint!) for alignment in train-to-train setups. Do you really think Our Hero ...

bigger chest 2xN size (for railway blueprints) or long-handed stacker inserter.

Please, please, please! We really need to get rid of cars/tanks in our vanilla train-station designs. All we need -- any chest of even width/length. Let it be 2x1 (ideally) or 2x2 or 2x6 (like train carriages). Or a long-handed stacker inserter. Or belt loader-unloader. Or allow railways not align o...

TL;DR Disable personal logistics requests for a minute or so after the player death. Or maybe just clear logistic requests on death altogether! As a penalty. What ? After I die with a full inventory bots will refill it. Then I try to pick up the inventory from my corpse. No way it will fit. Imagine...

How do I make 5 lanes of iron ore into one to feed into my smelters? (Early game, Stone furnaces)
You might even simply sideload it, like this:

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

He probably wants to split *lanes* by splitter and wonders why that doesn't work as he intended. Splitter splits both lanes on the input belt[s] to both output belts. If you want to split coal to one belt and ore to another you should configure that splitter with priority and filter, like "put ...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

When I've last played on 0.15.x, and searching the internets, distinctly remember Assemblers to stop producing once they have 2x of their production run in storage. There is a simple small mistake: Output of an assembler was always limited by a stack. Input was limited by twofold of necessary items...

Again there was a brilliant rule of thumb there, it will definitely help you. Before the shared piece (on the entrance) put the chain signal. After the shared piece put the regular signal (on the exit). Explaining in details: On the entrance to the split should be chain signal, so no train will stan...
