Re: Breadboards for circuit network combinators

Its implemented differently in a bunch of ways, but it functionally does the same thing, using a smaller combinator-only surface to compact circuit network logic builds. I think their approach makes it a bit more convoluted than it needs to be.

Breadboards for circuit network combinators

I love playing with combinators, but one of my biggest gripes is the large amount of space they consume. The game has you building nuclear reactors, portable fusion reactors and flying construction robots, so why should a device which functions as a basic logic gate take up 1x2 space? :lol: But imag...

I suspect they're setting the stage for some ultra-powerful bot types/capabilities for endgame (beyond what quality offers).

Re: Friday Facts #393 - Putting things on top of other things

Regarding the comments on epilepsy, the game shouldn't be restricted/limited for a minority of players. The new fast belts are a nice addition. Don't use the new belts if you feel like they'll trigger something, or use mods to make whatever changes you want.

Re: Friday Facts #393 - Putting things on top of other things

Consider the color orange for the new bulk inserters. Its a sportier color, indicative of its performance.

Re: Friday Facts #392 - Parametrised blueprints

It seems like conditional logic baked into it would help out a lot. We were discussing the implication of this feature with the quality mechanic, and how different qualities would be treated as the same parameter or not. For instance, you can have a checkbox on the BP parameter screen when placing i...

Display vehicle kills across all vehicles, including turret kills

This is already displayed with trains, so it would be nice to have this with all vehicles. It also puts it in line with kill stats from turrets as well. Aside from kills from striking biters/enemies, for vehicles with turrets it should also include kills from that as well. If total damage can be inc...

Re: Friday Facts #386 - Vulcanus

I had gotten the impression that the "starting" area was more so for biome location than either starting resources or clear area of enemies, though I could be wrong. Either way, if you think about it, if you're able to take the time to survey a planet from above before landing, you're obv...

Re: Friday Facts #386 - Vulcanus

Also, I am unsure how I feel about the starting area on Vulcanus. Can we get an option not to generate a starting area on a new planet? I feel like having a starting area forces you to build everything in one spot and then just bring in resources from mining outposts…just like back at Nauvis. I wou...

Re: Friday Facts #386 - Vulcanus

This looks awesome. It looks incredibly well made and will serve as an awesome backdrop to whatever crazy factories that will be made there. Can't wait to see the rest of the planets as their assets get completed!

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

What are you supposed to do with the occasional higher quality materials you can't match with others? The recycler returns 25% of the recipe ingredients. Or, seems we're talking about higher quality items here, store em till you can use em. Absolutely. The best of what quality offers will come from...

The legs appear behind the wires, and the upper part appears on top of the wires. Its a minor issue but just bringing it to your attention devs. 8-)

Remember that the landing pad acts as a provider chest as well, opening up the possibility for crazy bot throughput. There will probably be crazy train station loading designs where the pad is surrounded by roboports to load nearby requester chests at stations.
