Re: Laser Turrets need upkeep

I think the unlimited power from solar panels and accumulators has a simple solution: - accumulators need power to run when they are used OR they don't return the full amount of energy back (perhaps 75%) - the addition of weather would influence the solar power production. One of the main disadvanta...

Re: Smarter Trains

It could be done with a different approach too => make signals linkable to the circuit and logistics network

Re: Three things to change in Logistic network

Technically you'ld only need AND, OR and NOT. NAND, NOR, XOR and XNOR can be made with the 3 basics already.

Re: Allow interaction with UI even when paused

I agree, you should be able to read different things while the game is paused. (recipes, research, item stats,...)
You could also find these things on the wiki, but it would just be easier when you can acces them ingame without it having to run.

Re: Want to buy Tunnels for Trains / Railway Tunnels

If the tracks are one way only, he only needs 8 signals. be carfeull to put them in the right direction though! Another and IMO better solution would be path based signals like in OTTD. With this kind of signals trains only have to stop if they would end up on the same piece of track, meaning that t...

Re: Quick Moving of Buildings with Blueprints

Good idea, I have had to move my train station a few times already and this would make that easier.
Now you'ld have to deconstruct and wait till (almost) everything is removed before you can reconstruct (if the plans have overlap).

Re: Want to buy Tunnels for Trains / Railway Tunnels

Solution for now: you need to put 8 signals on the incoming and outoing tracks. Don't put signals in the middle, that will cause deadlock. Still, bridges/tunnels could be usefull, but the ramps would have to be long to be realistic. Therefore, the next thing people will ask: curved bridges/tunnels a...

Re: two belts on one tile width

Then you don't even have to cross pipes. Much luck in finding working layouts. :) for me this is just a side effect of a needed game mechanics. The game is 2D, but the reality is 3D and that has many reasons and one is, that you can cross pipes or whatever, cause they cross in different depth . I d...

Why did you put so many fast inserters to feed the Advanced Circuit factories with copper cable? Are you using speed modules?

Re: Packing/Unpacking Assembly

Belts are pretty cheap, so this will propably not be used very much. The only reason I see that would make this usefull is to balance amounts of different goods on a single belt. (f.e., electronic circuits, copper cable and plastic bars in a 1/1/2 balance for advanced circuit production)

Re: Speed and Productivity vs Efficiency Moduls

That's why effectivity modules aren't meant to be used alone. Use them with a speed or productivity module to counter the large energy consumption and pollution that those last two modules create.

Re: Why are electric furnaces so expensive?

You shouldn't feel so strong about other people using coal, it's just virtual coal. ;)
Also, the game is still in alpha, so players should experiment and try weird unexpected things to test balance and find possible bugs.
