I never ran into a bug myself and I am seriously impressed how people still find these things, and kudos to the devs for fixing things that most people will never even run into! :D
Too bad that doesn't apply to saving lua functions in global.

Re: UPS optimized 12-beacon smelting - w/minimal circuits

My main goal is […] to get out of my 40 ups/fps trap, TODO is list is really long... Then your strategy's optimizing the wrong thing. Entities aren't what dominates UPS cost, what dominates UPS cost is inserter swings. That's not an absolute, you can get the inserter swings down to a level where ot...

Re: Thoughts on using $HOME for __PATH__system-write-data__

You can point Factorio at anything you want in the config file, which you can call out from the command line. So to completely customize your setup you can make a ~/bin/Factorio (or wherever) options-processing frontend. My standard getopts seed template is while getopts x-: opt; do case $opt in x) ...

Re: Caching for multiplayer map download

So, server and client share a sync-saved state, client sends server the hash of its saved state and if the server has that it does its multiplayer save as usual but transmits only the diffs. Basically a Factorio-ized rsync. The server could also keep a pristine initial save; when the server doesn't ...

Re: Contest: Longest train based nuclear reactor

is no requirement for unloading ! Huh? What is the longest train you can fill from a nuclear reactor directly (heat exchanger -> pump -> fluid wagon)? That's what I was referring to. It meets my definition of unloading, I don't understand what you mean. Why not more? A little quick belt math will s...

Re: Contest: Longest train based nuclear reactor

If the direct-to-wagon steam unload requirement is relaxed, I think this method can manage a 4500×2 reactor plant. It's not a full implementation and all the train math here is spitballing but it's at least roughly right; reactor temps stabilize on this 2×8 PoC around 700℃ so there's plenty of headr...

Re: Kovarex in a row anyone?

It's not about tech level, but about industrial capacity. Producing any significant quantity of high-level modules takes lots of resources (and lots of power). Isolated (and therefore meaningless ;) ) datapoint: in the vanilla game I'm playing right now, I'm about 20 hours in and have been kovarexi...

Re: Kovarex in a row anyone?

This assumes the availability of high-level speed modules. I would usually be kovarexing long before I had such things. If you don't go hard on research then you use whatever speed modules you have and things run slower, but the design works with any level. I go for PA2 + fusion as a priority, whic...

Re: Kovarex in a row anyone?

Here's the one I use to get the Kovarex up and running as fast as possible, with some test/demo rigging (everything outside the beacon box that isn't blue). You need a sink for the unused U-238 from your ore processing, at least until it produces its 40th U-235. I don't think it's possible to get fr...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

Because of you I was playing around with trying to use 3 burner inserter, one for fuel injection one for fuel ejection, and another one to fuel the 2nd. If you put nuclear fuel, because that's what is done in nuke plant, you have 1210000kJ/70kJ=17285.7143 swing per nuclear fuel. Counting for fuel e...

Re: Theoretical best SPM * UPS?

Check factoriobox.1au.us for the benchmark maps, there's a 30KSPM map there that runs 60UPS on midrange hardware, like 3700X and 8700K tier. The goal I think most people are pursuing is the highest SPM that can sustain 60UPS on reasonable hardware, anything that can't sustain that is likely past the...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

Really, you only need one solar panel to slowwwwwly drive one nuc's feed pumps and loading inserters, everything else will cascade-start. But 4.4GW in 4 2×4 ploppable plants requires 160 uranium ore per minute unboosted, and I count 6M within 1km of the spawn point. That's a *month's* worth of fuel ...

Re: All the different ways to increase the efficiency of a nuclear power plant

The calc doesn't consider the energy that goes into making the fuel, you're right, and not considering that the burner setup saves about 185J/s. One rocket fuel is 100MJ, enough for 692 reloading swings (691 really, one to pick up the next fuel). That's 691 times three reactor cycles, 6910 minutes, ...
