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

I checked with latest versions of the containing mods. The tech should look like this: Screenshot from 2019-07-02 13-36-07.png Is it different, if you start a new game? Looks like this in the old game and in a new game: https://abload.de/img/factoriosteelurjnw.png - Disable "new steel" and check if...

Re: [0.17] Sea Block Pack 0.3.5

nope. "Iron plates cannot be smelted" I'm just playing my first SeaBlock game now and I'm wondering is steel really that far down in the tech tree? I researched steel processing because it says in the description that it will give you steel but it's not there although it gives you compoments that re...

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...

Re: Friday Facts #195 - Poles re-design

I have one generall question concerning the pylons. Currently they have three identical connection points for each wire type (electricity, red, green) which gives it symmtrical look. Why not have one big ass insulator for the high voltage wire and small clamps for the logic wires? They don't need in...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

The devs achieved both gameplay and realism both. First generation power plants don't load follow and they run for years without being turned off. They are started up and controlled so that the heat is as steady as possible - the control systems do not take load into consideration at all, they only...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Real world power generation can be broken into base, load-following and renewable. With this nuclear behavior the devs have now given us all three types - nuclear = base, Coal/Steam = load following and solar = renewable. To me this is ideal, the nuclear isn't a drop-in replacement for an existing ...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Hello, I've just started my nuclear power plant in 0.15 and it turned out that nuclear reactor consumes fuel cells at the same rate regardless of load. It consumes precious cells even at the daylight, when my solar panels are working. Is this bug or reactor's feature? Is there any description of ho...

Re: Friday Facts #167 - Reactors Operational

I don't see why boilers should produce hot water. There's no use for it, so leave it away. Boilers should convert all of the water to steam. Similar to the current boiler we get something like this: https://abload.de/img/factorio1tzsqn.png The boiler consumes water and fuel and produces steam. Sever...
