Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Another quick question, are laser turrets sufficient without a mix of other turrets? At least fairly early.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

It's the organising and properly putting things in the right place for the belts that I struggle with. I'll figure it out in sandbox though, I'm sure.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Perfect. Is it worth it to experiment in sandbox and figure out how to make a mall by yourself? I got a blueprint off the internet but frankly I had to modify it so much to fit my needs I basically just made a new one. Malls seem really confusing.

Ah, alright. Thanks for the info on both the nests and about the threads.

Re: Songs to Factorioize by

Anyone got some nice, calm instrumental techno that is available on soundcloud? The Factorio OST doesn't get old, but I'm still interested.

Should I prioritise my iron production (patch is running low) or oil?

My current iron patch is running dangerously low. Should I prioritise it or oil?

Re: How resource intensive is creating a railway system?

Alright. I need to set up a railway for the oil that's really far from my base, so it's probably a good idea to set up an outpost for the iron first (as I'm running dangerously low on it, and will need to get iron creation running again before I set up any other outposts. After that, I'll finally ge...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Is it worth the resources involved to get a roboport network up and running as soon as you can?

How resource intensive is creating a railway system?

Just wondering. Also, is it worth creating a railway system for a resource patch that's roughly a radar's base range away from your base?

Re: A few questions about trains and outposts

Alright. I assume taking out the nests is worthwhile too?

Re: 20-25 biter nests right next to oil I need. Unsure how to deal with them.

Thank you! The best part though? While I was freeing up the oil, my radars found a deposit for coal, copper, iron, AND stone very, very close to my factory!

Turns out... mixing was not needed. A few laser turrets early destroyed the NESTS in a matter of seconds. It was this easy the whole time. (I know this will sound dumb, but I didn't realise when I got the mod lasers did that much more damage)

Re: 20-25 biter nests right next to oil I need. Unsure how to deal with them.

This allowed the turrets to be densely packed and belt fed that was automatically resupplied. And mixing in some laser turrets (provided your electrical grid can handle it) would be good due to their longer range. Thank you. I don't know why, but all this time I never considered building an outpost...

Re: 20-25 biter nests right next to oil I need. Unsure how to deal with them.

Update: found a patch that isn't in direct proximity with biter nests. Problem? There are at least 100 biter nests between it and my base. All around any way I could set up my rail sytem. Edit: there is no way in hell this save goes anywhere if I don't figure out how to do some SERIOUS damage to bit...

Re: 20-25 biter nests right next to oil I need. Unsure how to deal with them.

It's official: resource patches without biter nests next to them do not exist in my save. I can find over 100 biter nests without even finding one resource patch. It is that bad.

Re: 20-25 biter nests right next to oil I need. Unsure how to deal with them.

The biters are a radar or two's area away from each other, all 10-15 nests. What the hell is up with my seed?
