Re: does the placing of electric mining drill matters that much in the game?

I prefer not too much effort into mines. Instead I use a setup, that is quick and easy to build and plan. I build all drills in rows right next to each other facing the belt. Also I leave one tile between the rows for electric poles and to be able to run in between the miners. That way I don't need ...

Re: any help with this blue circuit

i dont understand dont put cables on belts? If you look at the production ratios you will see first that you get 2 cables from 1 copper plate. That means you need double the amount of belts/trains/whatever if you want to transport cables instead of plates over larger distances. This makes it very i...

Re: any help with this blue circuit

One general tip: don't put cables on belts. They need double the space of plates and are fast and easy to produces. They can always be directly fed into the following assamblers. Especially with processing units that need 80 cables per piece your cable belt will be your bottle neck. With that red be...

Re: German localization discussion

Ich habe schon einmal versucht konsequent die beiden Begriffe "Brennstoff" und "Treibstoff" zu trennen. Aber das ging nicht, so wie ich das wollte. Das Problem ist: Im Englischen gibt es keine klare Abgrenzung zwischen "Treibstoff" und "Brennstoff". Beides ist einfach nur "fuel". Darum gibt es gar ...

Re: modify the bent belts to hold interger of items.

I understand you have a (probably rectangular shaped) belt going round and a problem because the number of items on the inner side of the belt is lower than on the outer side. If you built a figure-8-shaped belt you don't have that problem because the number of right and left turns is equal.

Re: Tips for NEW players

Automate everything and start as soon as possible. A beginner's mistake I made was crafting too many items on my own. I often had to wait a few minutes until my crafting queue finished. Now my first objective after starting a new game is getting my automated production for miners, furnaces, inserte...

Re: best scenario for blue bottle factory?

It needs so many sub factories and 3 ingredients, can somebody share? ANd when will I be able to invent electric mining? so I do not need coal anymore? Yes, chemical (blue) science is definetly the biggest step in the game because of all the new stuff that you need to build with the oil branch and ...

Re: Coal liquefaction energy efficiency

Base case: With 2 mining drills we mine 1 coal/s to put into our burners. The coal gives us 4 MW but the drills need 180 kW. This gives us a net power output of 3.82 MW. First without modules: 1 solid fuel per second equals 12 MW. But the production consumes 1.08 MW of electrical power and we must b...

Re: A critique of Factorio’s power generation systems

I often cogitated about how to make the electric power grid in Factorio more realistic. Currently it's a "copper plate" model. Any physical properties and limitations of the lines are completely neglected. Only input and output need to be balanced. In reality it's much more difficult of course. You ...

Re: Let the car and tank move like the player does

Main problem for me why playerlike movement is not applicable for vehicles is that vehicles have momentum but the player not. You can instantly change direction and stop. A vehicle behaves different. It will continue going in its current direction until friction stops it or a force changes its direc...

Re: Thermal power plant

Just add Burner, that produces heat from chemical fuel. The reason why I am not a fan of this solution is that the heat system to me feels like it is not really integrated into the game. It feels like there's something missing. At the moment it is just there to make the nuclear plant bigger. You ne...

Re: Thermal power plant

I agree, that the step from steam engines to nuclear power is a rather big one and that there should be a step in between. I would like to two things in this intermediate step: a boiler that burns oil or gas introduction to the heat exchanger system Basically a setup that builds the nuclear power pl...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

Playing my first game, and it's very frustrating that a lot of early techs that require steel to be of any use (because you can't use the buildings without it) are not locked behind the steel tech. It misled me down several paths and I wasted a lot of resources trying to do stuff that I couldn't un...
