[kovarex] [0.17.58]When using z on circuit disabled belt, too many items can fit

If you use circuits to disable a belt and then use z to manually place items on the belt, you can fit an unreasonable amount of items if you drag the mouse in the same direction as the belt is facing. It seems to place one item for each fram that the mouse is moving. In the image i managed to place ...

Re: Circuit Network help

Combinators 1-3 are for turning the long red signal into a 1 tick pulse so that combinator 4 adds one every time the signal registers a train. In other words: It should output a signal for precisely 1 tick when the input changes from 0 to 1. here it is very important to remember that a combinator ou...

Re: adressable memory cells.

This is quite similar to my RAM module for my combinator computer. Except that my version relies more on external pulses rather than internal pre-processing(ie it doesnt auto-override like yours do but for me it is fine as it it takes longer to pre-process the correct input anyways) The rightmost on...

Re: Notifications System

One thing i also miss is the ability for the programmable speaker to display custom signals. You can already set a constant Icon and a name but it would be nice for both of them to come from the Circuit network, so you could have things like: "Science outpost 1 is low on:" and then an Icon of a copp...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

When an inserter inserts ammo into artillery turret, what is the limit at when it wont put in any more?

Edit: Found out that it is 5 after 30 seconds of testing... :D

Re: Blueprint string help

Thanks. Is there a way to go the other way in my c# code automatically or do i have to go via the site to fix it up every time?
If so, am i on the right track with my current code(if i reverse it)?

I want to have a c# program to create Blueprint strings for combinators. I have some problem with turning the raw Blueprint string into something readable. What I want is a function to decode the string into a useful json text and Another to do the opposite. I have the zlib api to help decode it but...

Re: Help with a clock circuit.

The problem is that the inserters are trying to grab from a belt, they cant do that when given 0ne tick pulses, becauce they need to move a bit to reach the item and by that time the pulse is already over. It looks like you are trying to enable a different amount of inserters depending on the amount...

Re: Help with a clock circuit.

Also, you said that you wanted 18 inserters to run depending on the value of the input signal. If i understand correctly you want a constant with a number from 0-18 telling each of the 18 Clocks if it should go or not, and send a pulse to the corresponding inserter. You can get away with having a si...
