Balanced Bot Train Loader

After fiddling with my bots and them loading chests not evenly I finally came up with this solution. Not sure if it is useful for someone else but for me it works quite well. This setup works like the well known mazuri loader but with bots and can balance load a train station (or whatever else you n...

Re: Measuring rockets per minute

Would be nice if the used satellites would be shown in the consumption tab of the production statistics. Then you would have an easy measure for at least the science rockets. If you are at 60 satellites per hour you have 1RPM (or whatever it is called now :)). Not sure if the lack of satellites in t...

Re: [15.12] Can´t remove curved rails

you have to include the curved rail into the filter ... just search for it in the filter options

I hope this helps

Re: Trains with no enabled train station stutter

Hey mate.. This is not necessary. A properly signaled station with multiple stops will work without the circuit logic. Trains automatically go to an empty station with the same name if one is occupied. Take this bit out and I think your setup will work as intended. hmm I did not know this .. I teste...

Electric network cable connections saved in the blueprint

Hey mates. Currently if you have a blueprint with power poles in it the connections for the copper cables are not saved within the blueprint. Could I suggest that they - well are saved as well (like the circuit wires). I know it is more of a visual feature but it drives me nuts when I turn on the po...

Hay Mates. I was eager to test the new train signal and found a little bug :) ..

Re: [15.9] Train stopped at full power if no other station active

Hey mates, Version: 0.15.10 There is still an issue with the forward 'inching' :). Not sure if it is related to the circuit condition bug. My setup: The schedule this time is A - B.

Re: A somewhat different nuclear setup - could use some help

It reacts in an instant .. My whole factory works with energy spikes because I switch off and on fully beconed sections on demand. You can adjust the response by setting the border for Switch 2 ..with A = 99% as setting the whole setup jumps to full load in no time. It works because all turbines hav...

Hi mates. -> Version: current 0.15.7 new game started in 0.15.0 situation: I have a train schedule set up as in (picture 1). So the train goes A -> B -> A -> C. Station B and C are bound to conditions and can be disabled. When both stations are disabled the schedule only has multiple stations A. pro...

Re: throughput detector - very simple (only wires)

Seams the shorter version is the way to go ....
Backed Detector shorter
The condition is x=64 in this case and I had to shift the first wire after the splitter because it gave the false item count from time to time.

Re: throughput detector - very simple (only wires)

Well you can do this with only wires as well ... not sure if it is viable because you need the space for the wires. BackedDetector.jpg Top.jpg Right.jpg Left.jpg Wires.jpg I have not fully tested it yet but it looks ok so far. Maybe with a bit more thinking you could get away with less wires as well...

Re: throughput detector - very simple (only wires)

If you just want to know if the belt is fully compressed you are right with the plus mode .. but if you want to calculate the deviation from the max throughput the pulse mode will not work because you can not detect which side ticks. Though there is some interesting math for the plus mode, in theory...

While playing around with belt throughput I found this very simple detector. It works for all belts and can detect even the slightest deviation form the max throughput - instantly. troughput_detector_setup.jpg troughput_detector_deviation.jpg Just place 9 wires in a row and set it to 'read belt cont...
