Re: Lategame mining options are lacking

How about something like this? First, for long range transport, a cargo shuttle can be researched. We arrived at the planet via space ships, so i don't see a reason this tech should not exist at some point. its a follow-up of the rocket and bot tech. It requires a lot of rocket fuel and should only ...

Re: 0.17 Hype?

You created a successful sandbox game when: - You have kids fighting in it - parents are shaking their heads in disbelief, but have to go along with it - The more mature kids are complaining about the lack of content - You have dog sh!t all over the place, often hidden and encrusted like gems (some ...

Re: Train path check on Intersections

OK, i get it now. The idea i proposed was not only stupid but also outdated. Should read the forums and patch notes more often. So i just intersect with chain signals and do not worry about train length as long as there is a chain signal at the entry and a rail signal at the exit of the intersection...

Re: Train path check on Intersections

The thing is, since all trains had to stop anyways i wanted to create the fastest possible route to save some time. That was the only way i could come up with to further tune the network. On the plus side, i never ever have deadlocks, no matter how many trains i send in. Its not a real problem anymo...

Re: Train path check on Intersections

https://i.imgur.com/EPuF01h.jpg Whenever i try to put chain signals in between they just start flashing on every position. As said, this setup uses a lot of smaller supportive trains from and to smelters, reloading stations, in- and outputs around the base for mid and short range transportation. Ot...

Train path check on Intersections

Hello! o/ I wonder if it is possible to alter (or extend) path finding of trains to behave more "smart" on intersections. What i mean is, when a train approaches an complex intersection, it locks all in-going traffic, regardless if paths would be occupied by the approaching train path or n...

Re: The Green Dilemma

Also, nuclear is not necessarily a polluting tech... if you care enough to pass the right legislation. Europe does a pretty good job of it, for example. They use nuclear power extensively and yet we hear of almost no nuclear pollution or accidents there, unlike what happens elsewhere in the world. ...

Re: The Green Dilemma

I think they should limit the amount of effect you get from productivity modules. This way you either had to go speed (which will be challenging to support) or green. Also why is every questionable tech there is in the game to polute and destroy, but not simple stuff that could counter the effects o...

Black Screen on startup [Solved]

Hi! Well, i updated from .15.11 to 15.19 last night and everything worked fine. Today i opened the game and it just showed a black screen. Music was still playing in the background, so it doesnt freeze the system. Also it seems as if Factorio locked me out. Alt-tab, ctrl+alt+dlt, alt+F4, ctrl+x, esc...

Took me a while to realize (ore mines and train stations)

I used to run 2 Tracks close to an ore field, fork one side off and place a mine + train station there. The problem was to get the train back to base since it has to cross one track. But what if the tracks just go around the ore field with the train station in the middle? This way the train does not...

Re: Train wait times...

I use the inactivity timer for fuel stations, especially on support routes when a second network collects all the spread out small blobs of resources that are not worth to get full stations on their own. It works with 5, but 1 second wait after inactivity would be much better. It just wastes 4 secon...

Re: Extended goals post-rocket gameplay.

How about a extended the rocket phase? Your first rocket sucks and you launch a test satelite into low orbit. It wont stay for long (a few ingame days maybe) and will return to the surface where it has to be retrieved (position shown on the map). Every satelite gives you technology to research, to u...

[Terrain] Water

Introduction: Water - as terrain type - serves 3 main purposes: Water source for machines, a natural obstacle, and source of fish. For now, water can only be removed but not build. Which feels strange and like an easy workaround. Well, the main reason for this: It blocks movement of critters. Any a...

Re: Snow areas in factorio

Some more ideas and suggestions: Buildings, trains and vehicles should always consume a slow amount of energy to stay warm. I guess its more effective that way. You get into trouble when the power is out for some reason though. Liquids would require heating via boilers, or they might clog the pipes....
