Re: Self sustaining Solar Plant

Jobeo thanks for the pic. I've been meaning to move to solar panels for my power and kill my dependence on coal. How did you handle things prior to constructor bots? Just manually do the build? Yes, before bots I build in long rows... Since it is easiest to run and place the items at the same time....

Re: Self sustaining Solar Plant

I don't understand the need for the mathematical analysis. You should just work on large scales for everything. Use the construction bot blueprint planner to come up with an ideal solar panel design around a substation. Do the same for accumulators. Then put that blueprint down over and over... When...

[0.10.0] Highlighted item in inventory is wrong

When mousing over a potential item to craft it will flash/highlight your inventory if you already have such an item. If you click to craft that item, the contents of your inventory could change as items are consumed in the process. However, the highlight does refresh itself when this occurs and it c...

Set the assembler to something that uses lubricant and connection arrows will appear.

Hook pipes to the intake arrow.

Prioritize Ghost buildings and blueprint construction

At one of my outposts I put down some blueprints. I put a bunch of walls in a provider chest for the bots and expected then to go to work. It was very confusing when nothing seemed to happen. I literally did that three more times, putting more and more walls in the chest until I realized the bots we...

Place medium light pole overtop small light pole

Just as blue inserter can be placed overtop yellow inserter, replacing it in that position.

You should be able to place a medium light pole overtop a small one and have the small returned to your inventory.

If I clicked on grayed out icon, craft the item

Hello, love the game. Here is my suggestion.

On the toolbar, if I have run out of an item in one of my saved locations it will be grayed out. If I click on it, it should craft the item.

I think this would be very useful.

Re: [0.8.4++] Player as requester/provider chest

I think this idea solves another problem I was thinking about.

I want the bots to get rid of junk that regularly gets into my inventory. I.e., raw ores, solid fuel, wood, etc, etc.

Being able to specify all this junk in a remote requestor chest would be wonderful.

Re: Save game file size + autosave lags

Well I think this would be a very important thing to parallelize. I am thinking of turning down the frequency of autosaves to compensate in the meantime.

Re: Visual Indicator for Pollution

I was thinking it would be interesting to have a numeric display of current pollution emissions. So you could see how it goes up or down based on changes you make.
