Re: How did you discover Factorio?

My history with Factorio is the same as my history with Kerbal Space Program and Oxygen Not Included: I was browsing for some random game of any type, then i saw a Factorio picture.... downloaded it on pirate bay (or another torrent source), played for a few hours... then i bought it on Steam....

Re: Logic gate / electricity

You can read the energy level of an acumulatorYou can read the charge level of an acumulator. This signal can be used to enable or disable the powerplant. To disable the powerplant you can either cut the water source, the fuel source or control a power switch. I prefer the power switch method becaus...

Re: Module Production: To beacon or not to beacon?

I try to beacon everything. Production modules + speed modules saves a lot of resources. The power consumption is almost irrelevant - a 2x2 reactor can power almost everything.... if it isn't enough, i just build a new one. I tend to agree that power is irrelevant. - In vanilla, a 2x2 reactor gener...

Re: Rail Bridges experiments

Bridges... awesome concept that needs to be in the core game. And now that there is a mod for it there is finally a chance that it might happen. One more mod to add to my wish list. +1 for the "Must Have" mods! The funny thing is, in factorio, the character is an engineer that knows how to build tr...

Re: Factorio logic: Map is practically infinite but you still run out of space.

From the Factorio Wiki: https://wiki.factorio.com/World_generator#Maximum_map_size_and_used_memory Maximum map size and used memory The map size is limited to 2,000 x 2,000 kilometers; internally, this is a square 2,000,000 tiles on a side, with an area of 4,000,000,000,000 (4 trillion) square tiles...

Re: Insert behavior

Try this mod:

Merging Chests. (This mod is so essential that should be integrated into de game!)

Just replace the chest with a merged one and your balancing problems is solved.

Re: The Green Dilemma

At this stage (of just getting oil) i already have a yellow ammo factory and a turret factory - dedicated iron and copper lines for that factory, to i can install turrets and supply with ammo. Being dedicated it doens't interfere with the main factory. It is sufficient to stop almost all early alien...

Re: The Green Dilemma

I simply don't mind about pollution - that's what laser is for. IMHO Speed Modules LVL3 in Beacons, Productivity LV3 module in factories are more green than green modules considering a pollution per product ratio. In late game even my electric furnaces has productivity3 modules (I know, it takes for...

Wood (and other trash burnables) gets delivered to power plants by logistic robots so i can get rid of it. When the chest has wood, coal line is stopped until the chest is empty) Solid Fuel tra...

Re: Electric Furnaces vs Steel Furnaces

I stick to steel furnaces until i have sufficient productivity modules MK3, Beacons and speed modules MK3 to create a fully moduled electric furnace setup. I simply do not see any real advantages to switch to electric furnaces without productivity modules: Chemical fuel is usually cheap to produce -...

If you are allready working un Rails, could you also add tunnels or bridges? It would be very nice to see as an addition to have multilayer trains.
That would be very nice! With these features we can build non-blocking rail crossings when we have lots of trains.

Re: Biter attacking rails

The biter attacked entities in the chunk with the highest pollution in its vicinity. In your case, that chunk happened to only contain rails – so it attacked rails. Usually, this isn't what you'd expect to happen. Chunks that are the local maximum of pollution usually are those where some heavy pol...

IMO Fluid handling is due for a major overhaul.

I'm hoping the devs will do something in 0.14
Something like "Fluid Barrel mod" should be in stock. Specially with the new flamethrower turret.
