Re: 2^x vs y*10^x

I don't care as long as the numbers are consistent with the settings for smart inserters, and other items that can have settings.. I want to maintain 1 stack of some item at all times. I don't want to have to chose between 60 and 70 items when the stack size is 64.

Re: Simple module factory

This is the production overview for a 10 minute slice. It's fully stable as long as you keep the influx of ore and petroleum stable. production-overview.png I'm trying to speed it up with speed modules but initial attempts are not overwhelming. I think I have to add furnaces to achieve a meaningful...

Re: Burner Assembling Machine

Tell me, why would a space faring civilization carry around machines powered by coal? Wouldn't everything be electric? A space faring civilization would have access to fusion power. You're toaster is going to be electric, your oven is going to be electric, most vehicles, and machines would be electr...

Re: Pirating as a 'demo'. Your opinions?

#1. Don't ever admit to pirating a game, on the developer's own forum. Jeezus you're stupid.

#2. Despite what the morals police say you did the right thing. Pay whatever you need to set your conscience right.

Re: Blue Science pack advice

This is what I did. I produced plastic off screen. Use an oil setup like in one of the other recent threads. This machine also makes processing units for advanced armors. You're going to want to research and build MK2 armor before you get swamped with big biters. A few more warnings. 1. Don't just c...

Re: Recip of fast inserter

So to make the jump from green to blue you have to build an entire oil industry, plastics, advanced circuits, and batteries. Smart inserters (which require fast inserters as input) are relatively complex themselves. You want to add lubricant into the mix? This is not needed IMO for 2 reasons. 1. Blu...

Re: Yo Dawg (Belt Factory Expo)

It's not the best, but it gets the job done. One of my first applications of smart inserter/chest combos. The lubricant is piped in from the oil processing zone to the north east. To the west are some solar farms, after that my western walls.
