Re: Logistic Bot Provider

A provider station allowing all items from a logistic network being requested over long distances via LTN. The blueprint you've created is exactly what I've been looking for: a way to accurately request multiple items from my mall anywhere in my factory. However... it doesn't work for me like in th...

Re: [0.17.47] Crash on instantly cutting rails

This seems not to be reproducible, at least not with the following situations at the moment of mouse click release: * Train already passed (previously) yellow signal, but is still outside the cutting area * Train has not yet passed the signal, but the breaking distance is within the cutting area Not...

Maximum Signal Combinator Logic

Here's another take on the "give me the item that i have most of"-problem. Concept: A fast logarithmic complexity approach would be to use the average of all values as a pivot, and remove all items below it from the list. To avoid requiring too much space, I only use one instance of this algorithm a...

Re: Friday Facts #279 - Train GUI & Modern Spitter

Here's an idea: If the condition is set to Item Count = X, and current count is greater than X, have the entire bar be green, but overlayed on top of that is a yellow bar that fills in from the side. The width thereof could be ([(]currentCount - X[)] / X) or something like that. If currentCount is ...

It's an objective flaw by current standards of user interface design -- there's a reason for Windows, Android, iOS et cetera having guidelines specifying correct button placement.

This plugin solves so many problem over using pulse counters when loading trains, thank you. Still, I have two minor issues where I currently can not see how they can be solved best: I'd like to transport trains and wagons to a station near the depot -- which is a bit difficult since I assume the ou...

Manual Train Driving -- Reserving Tracks for the Player

Hello, I'd sometimes like to drive manually on an automated network, but this often causes either crashes or long wait times for me. This is mostly caused by automated trains being able to reserve tracks (yellow signals), while I have to drive to the track, drive a little bit over the red/yellow sig...

Re: Negative Amount in Logistics Network

Also, if you are worried about a fixed size buffer being too small or too slow, than any demand driven system must also be off the table as they are much slower. I don't think so, high latency / wastefulness (items somewhere else than needed / too many items stored where not needed) and low through...

Re: Negative Amount in Logistics Network

It sounds like you are missing what "available" means. I would not say that an item is "available" at a shop when it's currently being moved from one shop to another, or if it is on the way from the depo. I don't care where the Item is when ordering online -- as long as the Item can be reserved for...

Re: Negative Amount in Logistics Network

As for player requests, why would you need to read this? It's a serious question as even trying to implement a lean factory (only ever produce what you absolutely need), you would be subjecting yourself to having to wait for the items to be manufactured. My most common use-case for this would be se...

but the amount available vs the amount that the robots are trying to pickup and there is no other way of knowing if you are flooding your robotic network except for the -ve signal With flooding you mean transporting more items than the current number of robots can?

It's not about the amount being requested vs the amount available, but the amount available vs the amount that the robots are trying to pickup. Ah, then this was my misunderstanding.

Re: Negative Amount in Logistics Network

I don't understand the reference to "internal mechanics". The whole game consists of internal mechanics exposed to the user -- and to me, this specific mechanic does seem to expose unexpected and probably unintended behaviour -- in the latter case, a bug.

The negative amounts described in https://wiki.factorio.com/Logistic_network#Negative_numbers do not seem to work reliably: Works: While there are 50 items requested, but only 20 available, the item count is -30.
