Re: Is the Fluid Rework still planned?

As long as the proportion of pipes that I save due to predictable flow is greater than the proportion of slowdown I get from the new system, I still win on performance. You seem to assume that the "other" system would have made everything faster and higher throughput. That was not the pla...

Re: Come up with new infinite research

How would that work? Would evolution increase exponentially to keep you from just building a factory that “keeps up”, causing every factory to eventually die? Or would it be linear, so a player just dedicates a portion of their science to devolving biters? Is this any better than laser damage resea...

Re: Come up with new infinite research

Maybe biter evolution could be a part of infinite research. Right now, biter evolution is capped at below 100%. If biter evolution would be reworked and could go higher than 100% (maybe not just increasing spawn rate of higher tier biters, but also increase biter stats, like HP, damage, shooting and...

Hot Air first recipe

This is some feedback on the early part of pyanodon mods. So I recently started playing with PYmods and got the first science part done. One of the first things you unlock is "Hot Air", which can increase the production of glassware and other stuff. To produce Hot Air you require: pressuri...

Re: How can I block a ghost/blueprint from being constructed?

Just remove all the blueprints you do not want to build by either rightclicking or with the deconstruction planer. Then just let the bots build what you want them to build. If you want to build the rest, just place the blueprint on top of the build and all the missing pieces will be placed. Existing...

Re: Chests should have a max bots/s limit and more

If bots can visit chests only 1 per second I simply build more chests. How is that more fun? - Add a congestion mechanism of some sort. Maybe just the bots slowing down based on how many other bots are on top of them. That wouldn't be very CPU intensive. Yes, it would be. Very much so. The game woul...

Re: Have Some Questions Before I Buy.

Does actual live game get easier or are these tutorials disproportionately hard for new players? You can setup the difficulty of the normal game to any difficulty you like. That includes biters (enable, disable, increase, reduce), amount of available resources, obstacles (water, cliffs, trees) and ...

Re: Request: Max number of trains for stations

There is one inconsistency between some of posts here. Since there is request for repathing a train that is closer to loading/unloading train stop, that means request is to force train already in stacker that was heading to a trap train stop, to now repath to another train stop (same station). When...

Re: Request: Max number of trains for stations

@boskid I wrote this before and I think it is very important, so I write it again: this system will only work if the trains that are assigned to a "limited" station can remember that specific station (call it "station ID") regardless of the name and will only go to that specific ...

Re: [0.18.31] UPS drop with construction robots placeing many rails

probably repath lag. Whenever you put down a piece of rail all the active trains repath regardless if they can use those rails or not. If your train network is large enough + you have enough trains you will always see this and it gets worse the larger the base and the more trains you have.

Re: Confused of support/demand ratio for steel plate production

Since you managed to miscount here is a pro tip for counting: select a blueprint or decon planer and mark a row of smelters or whatever you want to count without releasing the mouse button. It will display the amount of items you have marked.

Re: Confused of support/demand ratio for steel plate production

Your 4x4 balancer is not balancing, it is missing a splitter either before or after the 2 undergrounds. But that is probably not causing the last smelter to not get enough resources. Double check if the ore line going into the smelter is always without gaps, that's debug options, transport lines, I ...

Re: [0.18.25] Cannot Import Blueprints

At the bottom of your game is the shortcut bar. At the right side of that there is an extra square containing several things like blueprints or deconstruction planer. There is a tiny button with 3 dots that allows you to customize that bar. One of those options is import blueprint string.

Re: [0.18.24] Unpredictable number of science packs preloaded into laboratory

the labs that you are showing in your images also have 2 input inserters, one from the belt, one from the adjacent lab. If the inserters want to insert a new pack, both of them will do so at the same time, depending on if there are items on the belt and if there are items left in the lab. Therefore ...

To be honest the cliff just vanishes into thin air. No explosions or something.
True. With the new particle system it should be possible to make them crumble into the ground.
