Allow the "ANY" wildcard in the "set inserter stack size" inserter circuit setting.

Found this suggestion originally in this thread , but since that original suggestion was already implemented, this should receive its own thread. TL;DR Allow the stack size of inserters to be set via the circuit network using the "ANY" wildcard instead of specifying a specific signal, whic...

Re: Allow placement of blueprints in chunks with FOW

I made a similar suggestion, but didn't see this thread before posting (my bad).

[Klonan] [1.0.0] Rail signal disappearing from inventory in rail tutorial

In the rail tutorial, whenever you pick up a signal that is not in your initial inventory, pressing the "reset trains" button will remove those signals from your inventory, forcing you to "reset all".

[0.17.68] Wire connection shadows do not blend with other shadows

Normally, shadows in the game will blend together, so multiple objects with overlapping shadows will not cause a darker shadow to appear.

Except for the wire connections. They are clearly a darker shade of grey when they pass across other shadows.

I assume the fix is that you are allowed to place it there?

[kovarex] [0.17.56] Inconsistent (not allowed) rail signal placement

The player is unable to place a signal on the diagonal track between the two curves, but when one of the curves is removed, the signal can be placed down, after which the curve can be put back in place with the signal still being in a working state. Updating the blocks adjacent to the signal by addi...

Re: Friday Facts #278 - The new quickbar

Sounds nice. Will it be possible to switch quickbar pages by hotkeys? Or just by mouse-clicking? keys 1 to 0 will pick the item in the slots of the top selected page. Shift + 1 to Shift + 0 will change the the top selected page. I meant the other thing. Imagine I have 2 active quickbar rows. The qu...

Make the filter a hard filter, rejecting all other items no matter what. That's already what happens as far as I know. The filter is not meant to be used like a requester chest. It's meant to be used to make sure there's room for certain items in your logistics network. For example by making sure t...

The input and output balanced lane balancer on the wiki which you surely found on your search does exactly what you want: https://giant.gfycat.com/NervousEnergeticGalapagostortoise.webm This looks to waste an underground belt. Specifically the left pair could be reduced to just one underground I th...

Re: [kovarex] [0.16.43] Inserter inconsistency when grabbing from belts

To make reproducing the problem easier, I made a blueprint that shows the problem, and times the exact ticks of the inserters.

Re: Digital Display, Yay!

The lamp doesn't have any condition and is just acting like a powerpole (aka, it just connects the red wire through to the combinators)

I just used the lamp instead of having a powerpole in each of the blueprints as I personally prefer using substations once every few digits.

I tried to reproduce it (both the circuit version or the 3 belts with a splitter version), and it both worked the same north and south (54 cycles and took the whole belt). Are you sure you were using the reported orientation of the underground belt? The blueprint I provided does NOT have the proble...

Re: [0.16.45]Lane of inserting onto splitter depends on rotation

This should 100% be considered a bug, and I don't understand why the forum moderators keep pushing it to not-a-bug/duplicate.

It's literally the only thing in the game where rotation matters, which can break all kinds of blueprints.

Re: [Experiment] Unloading 4 compressed blue belts per wagon.

Here's a version using the splitter mechanics I threw together. It's only using the regular amount of stack inserters and a single row of buffer chests. https://i.imgur.com/wCMJuTo.png It's actually capable of doing slightly more than 4 full belts. 4.25 to be exact. To achieve that some extra wiggli...
