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

Wasn't is always said that Quality is optional? But now the game is balanced around it and assumes you will have a lot of production that needs much higher belt throughput. I know there are other things like the new miners, but it seems like it's just assumed that you use Quality items when available.

Re: Friday Facts #392 - Parametrised blueprints

Some balancer with blue underground belt can't be made red or yellow though Yeah, you have to be a bit careful, but they generally work upwards, if not downwards. Blueprints that are universal could be completely generic, and others can use a specific color for a belt piece when needed Another simp...

Re: Friday Facts #392 - Parametrised blueprints

Something that would also be really useful is a generic belt / underground / splitter that gets assigned its color when you put it down. It would clean up balancer books for example. And it's a way to introduce this feature earlier, or for people who aren't so heavily into complex train setups. But ...

Re: Friday Facts #387 - Swimming in lava

I'm very curious what the modders will do with the new mechanics and buildings
I'd like more mods that add a little bit of complexity here and there. Instead of a completely overhaul or total conversion, just add a step or two at some points. And make it the same style as vanilla.

Re: Friday Facts #386 - Vulcanus

This is amazing. Kind of makes Nauvis looking boring. Different biomes with unique resources would be great on the starting planet too.

I also like new metals with more advanced smelting. That's something I always wanted for the base game later on.

Re: Friday Facts #381 - Space Platforms

If there is no atmosphere for burner entities then there is no way an engine plume will look like that. Yeah that threw me off too. It's really unnecessary for the scene composition. Just the blue flame looks amazing. And together with the moving engine it adds enough visual "clutter" to ...

Re: Friday Facts #380 - Remote view

One last thought- The ability to fully manipulate modules in bulk would be extremely useful in vanilla, especially getting into larger bases with large repetitive setups, and/or jumping between different quality levels. You're currently limited to only replacing modules in machines if they already ...

Re: Friday Facts #378 - Trains on another level

O...M...G... :o

Did not see that coming. The part about being a game changer in train stations when using bi-directional trains is true. Now you run into massive issues if the exit rail crosses the entry one.

I also love finally having bridges over water :)

If you need to jump a large distance you just need to leave two spots for the underground every so often.
And those two spots are then unavailable for other things. Like inserters. It's an issue in beaconed builds mostly.

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

my suggestion for the developer is this, why not seamlessly combine the quality feature with what space travel and extraterrestrial colonisation would bring?

Re: Friday Facts #375 - Quality

I don't know. This seems like hell for making optimized designs. You can spend a lot of time designing sub factories that consume exactly the right amount (like X number of belts), with exactly the right amount of machines, and the right amount of inserters to move things. Throwing in some machines ...

Re: How do you deal with deconstruction leftovers?

I try to empty sub-factories as far as possible. Like cutting off the inputs, but keep consuming the output. But with often uneven input amounts it's not perfect with the more complex items.

Re: Why are the precent of my oil fields become less?

You can put speed modules in your depleted oil jacks. And speed beacons where they can reach several jacks. That keeps even depleted oil fields reasonably productive. Otherwise go out further. Just like with ore, oil fields increase in yield the farther they are from the starting location.

Exactly. I knew that, but there was no reason to be that pedantic. That one extra measuring accumulator will be charged almost immediately.
