Re: Rail yard speed limits

Better solution : make fast moving train audible from longer distance (optionally: only if player is close to rails) Here are some problems with this solution: It doesn't work for deaf people. Who cares [*]It doesn't indicate which line, or which direction the train is coming from. Who cares. All y...

Re: Stop / sleep button for assemblers / etc

Not sure why you singled me out, but okay. You said that it is a good idea and you want it implemented, and it was my ragequit moment. It's hard to read "Suggestions" subforum, because many people posting here don't think too much about things they suggest. Yes, pause icon in the Alt view shift thi...

Re: Rail yard speed limits

Problem : It is hard to tell if train is coming Solution you propose : add another in-game item to slow down trains in certain area It doesn't solve the problem, just create a work-around (e.g. crossing tracks in any other area would still be dangerous) If you want trains to move slowly, just add 1...

Re: More levels of robot speed research

The top-end robot speed isn't insanely fast yet, and the robots (particularly construction robots) can take a while to travel across a large base. So why not add a few more robot speed upgrades? Because you want to brute-force bad layout to work fast by using research button. We have DyTech for that.

Re: Stop / sleep button for assemblers / etc

This is a good idea, although I think its usefulness is limited. Either way, I'd like to see it implemented. +1 Would you like to guess which ones of 50 assemblers on the screen are not working because they don't have enough materials, and which ones are turned off? Because there is no way to tell ...

Re: Can the player be killed by train? (Train kills?!)

I like the current behavior.
Early game, the train is deadly, but you don't have many of them.
Late game, train crashes into you and you walk away because of power armor.

Re: Expanded Low/No Pollution Machines [Expansion]

would people find it useful if the boilers are so inefficient? Electric boiler should have ~100% efficiency, like it's real-life counterpart. Losses occur in the steam engine.

Re: [0.11.x] Transfering fuel into Car/Tank trunk broken

it's still a bit tricky to drive the car that near to the inserters. Nah, car is fine, but driving TANK into refueling station without squishing a pair of inserters - that's what I call tricky. Although [ Long inserter | Wall | Tank ] alleviate this problem. Back to the topic - it is bad design dec...

Re: Tutorial for Belt Speed, Density and Throughput

Great video. Everything is spot on. A lot of seasoned players mess up terms and have trouble distinguishing throughput and speed in they let's plays.

Re: Belt buffers

According to numbers from the wiki , this buffer can support 3 RDH factory, but, according to this calculator , it is 1 RDH, which seems more feasible to me. On the other hand, copper usage numbers from Cordylus indicate that it is 3 RDH indeed (if Cordylus is right about his factory performance)
