Re: fractal 512 belt balancer

Re: Non-throughput-limited 8+ belt balancers?

I don't believe the .net framework tool folks are discussing, above, actually attempts to decide whether the blueprint you feed it is a balancer or not... although I could be wrong. Instead, my recollection is that it assumes your blueprint is a balancer, and tests its throughput properties. I'm su...

Re: Non-throughput-limited 8+ belt balancers?

TheRalph your contraption is not a balancer, though it is pretty close to throughput unlimited. My tool gives following output: Loading a 8 to 8 balancer with dimensions 16x13 and 32 splitters Output balance: 0/8 Input balance: 0/8 Throughput under full load: 100% Min Throughput with all combination...

Re: Early super compact GREEN CIRCUIT

This design is unfortunately copper starved. It only produces 533 circuits per minute, while the nominal speed would be 720/min. Fortunately I was able to come up with a build similar in size (18x19 instead of 19x18) that is not copper starved: http://i.imgur.com/aKd0XWw.png 0eNqdW9tu4koQ/Bc/gzQ9d/M...

Thanks for the save. I get a depressing 29 UPS with a 1700X @ 3.8GHz and 3333MT/s RAM with timings 14-14-14-34.

Re: I7-2600k vs i7-7700k single core performance

You can gain a lot of performance by upgrading, since you get a massive speed boost from faster RAM in Factorio. DDR3 1600 vs. DDR4 3600 is quite a leap.

The technology graph wasn't necessary either, but is a very nice addition. I for one would absolutely love to see such a dependency graph but for items implemented and would definitively use it.

Re: Command line belt balancer analyzer

When I cut input line 4 and output line 2, line 1 is still full, but lines 3 and 4 aren't completely compressed. That is thanks to the sorting ability of splitters. The only way to make a truly throughput unlimited balancer is to get a normal throughput unlimited balancer of twice the size, split e...

But it is. The english language is context sensitive and our context was prod3 in science assemblers and labs, nothing else.

That is not how this works. It would be reduced to 1/(1.4 * 1.2) = 0.595, so you still need more than half as much.

Re: Still problems with unpowerded combinators

I like this behavior since it lets me step through single updates with a power switch and a creative energy interface. Very convenient when trying to build a combinator CPU.
