Re: Chests with slot filters?

Hi @astroshak Yes! I used that pattern myself in the past. This time around, I was trying to avoid that limitation of 12 items per wagon introduced by having only one request filter per chest. I tried adding in multiple request filters per chest but then found that the inserters would a) try to load...

Re: Kirk Calculator only has 3 slots for assembler prod modules? Why?

Hi torne, hey thanks for the feedback. Now it makes sense. Although, I successfully built and tested a 12 beacon setup following the kirk calculator, and I only used 3 prod3's per assembler, and got the right flow rate. I guess the fourth prod3 isn't always needed. I like the 8x8 beacon setup better...

Re: Chests with slot filters?

Hey guys, thx for your feedback. It made me rethink my question, which in retrospect was a little half-baked! I understand now, that having filter slots in chests wouldn't solve any of the problems I was having loading a supply wagon. I now use a chest with multiple request filters, and only one ins...

Kirk Calculator only has 3 slots for assembler prod modules? Why?

Hey guys, I'm not sure I understand the kirk calculator (Using version 0.17): https://kirkmcdonald.github.io/calc.html#zip=dZDbCgJRCEX/5jx1aLpD4Mc4jpR0bqgD9fc17/Yi6ILtYi/oCFM+3PJ1SorOYIkGHFOVBuc0c3Hg91A2y67YbHT1vJ3TUmGc0jKDbZPgcE3iXA1w9V7RpbdsJNyI80B63fV+mfanXekPMRcKYZUijvoJIT25CmEJ4dC+rPT36+pbcpxrv...

Chests with slot filters?

Hey guys, I'm seeing the need for having filters on each slot of a requester or buffer chest. The reason is I want to be able to transfer multiple products from chest to chest without having a free for all at the receiving end. Is this a reasonable thing to want to have? Has this idea been considere...

Re: Steam for emergency only with status lights

Great stuff! I'm glad I stared this thread. I also experienced a couple of blackouts, not pleasant. I try to always keep a chest of coal nearby so I can manually get the steam engines rolling again. Luckily they were'n't too overloaded by all the extra lasers I had added into the network in the mean...

Re: [0.13.10] and [0.13.11] Slow Motion

I've been seeing the "slo mo" bug since 0.13.11. and I can say that for an existing game, 0.13.12 didn't fix it. I couldn't run with 0.13.10 because it was crashing due to other bug when crafting. I am running Linux with Steam, 4K display. I notice that the "slo mo" happens right...

Re: Steam for emergency only with status lights

Hey Beeblebrox, that was very good feedback. Indeed you are right. I can just place an accumulator near a pole attached to my network, detach this network from the steam engine network, but re-connect via a power switch (left in off position). Connect the accumulator to the power switch with red wir...

Re: [MOD 0.12.11+] Blueprint String

Sorry, I'm a dunce I guess. But the instructions to import a blueprint don't make sense to me.
craft a blueprint, got that.
Now, click what? I don't have an icon that matches the icon shown. I'm running 0.13.9.
There is something in square brackets, what? [.] or something. What does that mean?
Thx

Re: Version 0.13.10

After getting a crash in my 0.13.9 game (and posting the bug), I tried a brand new game with this version. As soon as I tried to craft a pick axe, boom, game closed.

0.13.10 Crash after a minute of playing my 0.13.9 game

I guess my game updated automatically to 0.13.10. As I was crafting a blueprint, about 1 min into game, before it was fully crafted, factorio closed. I tried running from command line, but there was nothing written. Is there a log file somewhere? I am attaching my game Mark_6.zip I found the log fil...

Re: Steam for emergency only with status lights

Hey, thx. for replying.
Sure thing, as I wrote, creating some kind of meter with the lamps is a great extension. My main concern here was to show how the basics of it are done, since that cost me an arm and a leg to get it all right in my mind!

Steam for emergency only with status lights

Hey guys, this is my first post. I didn't see enough on how to set up a switch using accumulator and decider combinator, but I saw the older discussion using the two inserters and the accumulator. This 0.13 update is my latest "switch" for turning power off unless its needed. As you may kn...

Re: Welcome

Hi, I'm on my 6th Factorio game, and I have some feedback to the game makers. Where might be the best place for that?
Thanks.

P.S. This is the best computer game I've ever played!
