Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

I see it now.

Biological sample != Bio-sample

It is easy to confuse bio sample as an abbreviated biological sample.

Wrong. Use Aougs to make bonemeal. FNEI or other recipe explorer is recommended to avoid this.
Aougs do produce bonemeal, but as I said. To produce or research Aougs, cDNA is required, and that is dependent on bonemeal. There is no other means of producing bonemeal.

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

There seems to be a blocked technology path in the last couple of releases that prevents progressing to Logistics Science. Poor Alien sample is required which requires Biological sample. Biological sample requires bone meal. Bone meal cannot be produced without researching creatures with bones. Crea...

Re: Locked technology, can't progress

Hmm, yes, Raw Nexelit can be obtained from tailings dust using an evaporator. I misunderstood and overlooked that turning raw into plates wasn't available to you. This appears to be a bug in the technology matrix and the three Py mods you are using. It looks like pyrawores mod will remove the requir...

Re: Locked technology, can't progress

Nexelit can be obtained from Tailings dust.

Logistics science will bring the required technologies

These are merely hints without spoiling things too much. If you need more details please ask?

Re: Mods updatable on startup

Thg new-ish "Continue" button, while convenient, does not give us nearly enough information when it comes to what impact updates might have. We only get to learn about them once the map has been, or was attempted to be loaded. If, on the other hand, we use the load game interface, mods in particular...

Re: Change ordering of drone repairs when large numbers of buildings are damaged/destroyed

The task queue cap has been known about for some time for sure. However, I'm not sure that the order of operations and priorities are that widely understood. Breaking base development into smaller chunks seems sensible, but for new players - maybe some veteran players, the rationale is not exactly t...

Re: Change ordering of drone repairs when large numbers of buildings are damaged/destroyed

Interesting. I feel a scenario coming on to test this out. Bots are hard to monitor, and I've always wondered why sometimes they don't appear to be doing what I had hoped them to do, and this new revelation might explain why. The alerts are definitely capped, but I have been under the impression tha...

Re: Change ordering of drone repairs when large numbers of buildings are damaged/destroyed

Perhaps some clarification is needed here? When the OP refers to a separate logistics network, is this actually the case? ie when viewed from the map with logistics network overlay active, are they are separate islands? I haven't noticed this, but if separate logistics networks are included in the "...

Re: Do you update your modpack ?

Re: Train not moving

Disabled stations still appear to have a penalty of 2000 each where they are not destinations. That gives the top branch a total penalty of 4000 compared to 3000 of the lower branch with the single enabled stop with a train in auto but without a valid destination (CyanEnd is disabled) The lower path...

Re: Is there a quick button for updating active mod to newest version?

There are two ways: First, you can update all mods from the Mod menu -> Updates to keep everything current for when you need them. Second, and what I think you are asking for, Single Player -> Load Game -> Select your save -> Sync mods with save. At the bottom of the list you'll find any of the acti...

Re: Create module request when placing ghost over existing building

Wait, what exactly is the exception again? Either way you're placing down entities then setting them up (or finding existing ones) before ctrl+C or BPing. Your method also suggests modules are replaceable in which case there is no exception. I don't quite follow the reasoning in either of the two c...

It's actually similar if you want to update entity settings remotely... most commonly for me, changing circuit conditions or splitters. Very cumbersome to do remotely.
That does work with the temporary blueprint method above. It is just modules that are the exception.
