Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

On the matter of inserters: The changes to burner inserters (now mechanical inserters, due to the very sensible removal of any fuel requirement) are absolutely vital. Filtered inserters and underground belts can fully replicate the functionality of splitters; if either splitters or filtered inserter...

Re: How to defend the base with no lead around?

You do not start with lead in the current versions of RSO and Py.

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Y'all just try to make me restart now with AlienLife :) I do look up most of the recipes to see how true they are to real life and most of the time, I see the reasoning behind. Of course, the game is simplified, but nevertheless, it is interesting see these connections. AE is good as well, and requ...

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Hi all, I'm a beginner in this mod and I took it because I liked the idea of its relevance to real-world processes. In that line of thinking, I chose to ignore Alien Life (as well Alternative Energy, they seem dependant). However, I wonder was I right to do that? I mean, instead of having sheep to ...

Re: pY Coal Processing - Discussion

graphics: washer. when the water inlet is located from above, some pipes appear that are not present in the other direction of the inlet. This is not a bug. The reason those pipes appear only in the vertical configuration is because they represent the fact that there is a pipe connection to the nor...

Re: pY Industry - Discussion

Hi guys, newbie here. I want to have a fluid reservoir which I want to empty out on reaching say, 80%. As the Ponds are the first one available and the vanilla as well other tanks require Duralumin they come much later in the game, how I can do that with them? It seems that they don't empty out if ...

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Hi guys. Noticed some inconsistency. On the example of vrauks: 2 cells with vrauks are fed into the reproductive complex. At the exit, 1-2 cells with vrauks and 0-1 empty cell are possible. But perhaps 2 cells with vrauks and 1 empty will come out. That is, 2 cells were received at the input, and 3...

Re: How to defend the base with no lead around?

These mods aren't balanced for use with biters currently. I'd suggest either turning biter settings down to minimum, turn off expansion, and set evolution to only occur by destroying bases at a significantly reduced factor (because you will spend too much time and output too much pollution for those...

Re: pY Alternative Energy - Discussion

That's not a "positive energy loop", it's just an efficient way to process coal. Every method of processing raw coal in the game (as far as I can think of anyway) results in coal products with more total fuel value than the raw coal. This is not deriving energy from nowhere, nor is it an e...

Re: pY Alternative Energy - Discussion

The one thing that I think is missing from PyAE is pumped storage. It would be great to have the option to create an artificial reservoir of water as a method of storing power without using accumulators. The tradeoff would be that pumped storage is cheaper than accumulators, but requires an enormous...

Re: pY Alternative Energy - Discussion

Thanks, I figured out the new game mechanics. It's not about that. As a player, it would be more convenient for me to quickly receive information about the amount of ash in a particular object. For example, by hovering over an object with the mouse, information panels with certain information are d...

Re: pY Alternative Energy - Discussion

Hi all. Dear developers, please add information about the amount of ash in the object (the rights are preliminary information if you point at the object with the mouse). In addition, as I have noticed, not every new energy object has its output power reflected. You get one ash per burned fuel item....

It's explained earlier in the thread that it stands for Linear Fresnel Reflector. It's a method of solar power generation.

Re: Late-earlygame coal gasification plant

How do you get Helmod to show power output, by the way? I've not yet encountered that feature. As for the efficiency, I admit I don't actually know how energy efficient coke oven gas conversion to syngas is, having not looked into it myself; it just seemed like an obvious potential option. A while a...

Re: Late-earlygame coal gasification plant

You are right about the second screenshot. Apologies for the darkness, I took the first one and only a few minutes later had the thought to also take a screenshot with the alt view enabled. But yes, I am using oxygen for syngas. Previously my coal gasification was limited to a couple of isolated 3 -...

There appears to be a localization error with natural gas derricks. The first tier is fine but subsequent tiers have an error like the above image.
