Re: Friday Facts #297 - New resource icons

I don't know if this has been said but randomized ores have 1 major disadvantage: If belts aren't completely packed but for, say 90%, then this is almost impossible to spot because you cannot see the distance between ores anymore. You could at least read the post before yours. You sound like a trol...

[0.17.36] Tooltip for blueprint book in quickbar not updated after adding a blueprint.

I added a new blueprint to an old blueprint book (which I made in 0.16.xx somewhere). Then I noticed that the tooltip that appears when hovering over the blueprint book in the quickbar isn't updated. It isn't showing the new blueprint. The blueprint book was already in the quickbar before adding the...

Your factory is built big like it handles high volumes, yet you are using miniature cuck-trains?
Oh this is quite normal. I'm not sure what the idea behind it is but I know it's not uncommon, even for mega bases.

Ultimate chaos at the 'core' there. There is barely any structure discernable.

Re: Bots with collision box and addressing the performance hit

Collision gets very expensive very fast: - Pick a bot - Move it - Did I hit bot 1? No. - Did I hit bot 2? No. ... - Did I hit bot 230301? yes! - Well golly gee I guess I'll back up a bit - wait a minute I hit another bot! - Welp Those CPU cycles add up fast. Seems like you haven't read about Quadtr...

As long as it is not problematic... it has the potential to solve the entire bots vs belts issue so there is a lot to gain here.

I added some suggestions for this as well in my post.

EDIT: ah, hahaha. I see what the major performance hit is. The actual collision check. Well then you might use things like quad-trees to speed this up.

Bots with collision box and addressing the performance hit

After reading the FFF about belts vs bots I had an idea. I always thought it was strange that you can have a thousand bots on the exact same spot. This, in essence, makes them so good. My idea is twofold: 1. Give bots (only logistics bots) a small hitbox specific for airborne things (they cannot col...

Re: Killing BIG Nests

If you have a power armor, put energy shields mk1 or better mk2 in it and get yourself a flame thrower. and then KILL THEM WITH FIRE :D Agreed! In addition: use exoskeletons (3-5) to kite the biters. This is how I do it. Or just, you know, use turret creep (put turrets closer and closer to the nest...

Re: Compact refinery+beacon setup tileable in all directions

Interesting! Intuitively it feels like too many beacons, what is the ratio of refineries per beacon? Wouldn't it be more efficient to put in more refineries and fewer beacons, or is that more difficult to tile? I'm not sure what you mean by too many. Do you mean that with more refineries you would ...

Compact refinery+beacon setup tileable in all directions

Refinery builds always seem so chuncky to me so I decided to design a setup that is compact and has a lot of beacons to be more space efficient in terms of refining capacity per tile. It is also tileable in both directions. It has one input pipe for water and oil per column and it has 1 output pipe ...

Re: [0.14.22] Can build on trees

You're using a mod that reduces the collision box size of the tree and the solar panel. Remove those mods if you don't want that to happen. Thanks for the quick reply. To be clear. This did not happen before (as you can see from the older parts of my solar field). Something did change in the intera...
