Re: Bugs & FAQ

Edit if any1 is interested add the following line to angelspetrochem_0.8.6\prototypes\ petrochem-generate.lua angelsmods.functions.make_void("liquid-aqueous-sodium-hydroxide", "water") Sodium hydroxide solution doesn't have a void recipe. It would be really great to get rid of solid sodium hydroxide...

Re: Friday Facts #299 - Everything is more complex than expected

Train should generate a stopping shadow in front of it based on braking force. Overlaps could be recorded in arrays to decide "give way" order.

Steel, iron, copper, but don't forget brick ! It's important because it's used to produce purple science.

I use this set-up.

Re: [0.15] We need a way to destroy blue prints!

Using that in the blueprint menu removes the blueprint, but as an item they end up cluttering the inventory. Since now blueprints are spawned instead of crafted, I agree ...

Re: [0.11.x thru 0.12.3] Improper train routing

In the meantime use unique station names.

The fix seems straight forward enough. Store train paths in memory or let user draw a line for trains to follow. After any construction an attempt should be made to re-connect the part between the two links, if a path was running through that piece of rail.

Re: Friday Facts #183 - Aiming for the release date

Could you add a new train condition that functions like a station hopper? It would be useful to have the train reach a station and not move to another without user input. "Summon to station" would be great, too, i.e. when selecting a train via train station, that station would receive focus on the s...

Re: Why is the water level low?

That would make the small pump a bad shut-off valve then? Would 3 or 4 small pumps remedy the situation?
Maybe I should turn off the coal belt to control steam power. Thank you!

What is a combinator useful for?

It takes input from resource container (chest, storage tank for liquids, other combinators) and outputs a custom signal. This allows programming production logic. Simply wire combinator outputs to smart inserters or simple (liquid) pumps or water pumps or lights etc to control resource consumption.

Re: Combinators and requester chests

Best I can suggest is to make a train stacker and keep some trains for manual use. Build a rail along your iron plates belt and create a seven chests long loading area. Set up assembly machines along another part of rail and unload resources directly into them. Works great on products that need a li...

Great game! However, I think it would benefit from additional military options. And some logistic ones.
