Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

How can I display launched rocket count? I remember it was displayed in the top left corner but now it's not there in FreePlay.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Another set of stupid questions - they're so stupid that it seems nobody even asked. :D 1) Can I make lights work 24/7 and not only at night without sticking combinator to each / gigantic circuit network / mods? Also, circuitry white is darker than natural white. I assume no, but just in case. 2) If...

It allows you to specifically remove landfill tile ghosts.
Tricky thing, thanks.

If two chests were allowed then the classic stack override 12/8 scheme fully compresses both lanes.
Ehmmm... what am I doing wrong again?))

Hi Factorians! So, as I understand, I cannot actually remove Landfill, as stated in https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?p=312151#p312151 https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=4973&start=120#p139320 But them, what does this thing do? :) 2021-05-04 17_25_18-Factorio 1.1.32.png...

Re: How do I save UPS for megabase?

Any comments from UPS aspect? Not as such, but I'm wondering... it looks as if you entered into a sub-challenge of getting the most throughput out of a single train station, and I wonder if that is strictly necessary for a megabase? Short answer - trains loading/unloading time becomes the bottlenec...

Tried a bunch of things to remove the sideloading, but I can only get 43i/s. (Stack size override 7/11).
Sorry for stupid question. What do you mean by sideloading and why to remove it?

End-game concrete balanced for 30/s output

So, this thing below works fully on speed modules 3 to take less space. And it outputs strictly 30/s of reinforced concrete. Consumes blue belt of bricks, HALF of red belt for everything else, produces Sticks inside of itself. And some water, of course. Output made to the same side as input because ...

Re: How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

The faster they travel, the faster they consume that "travel distance" power and the sooner they must return to charge. Oh, thanks, now I calmed down a bit. As your logic seems to be obviously correct, I'd like to introduce here The Mission :) And the mission of our bots is to transfer so...

Re: How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

First of all, disentius, thanks for this calculation. It helps. Now, the only reason I'm doing overkills that is to ease expansion. Like, remote smeltery should have a some unused (now) capacity so that every time I expand I don't need to rebuild it. As I don't know when will I stop, it seems the be...

I like the lower one. Thanks :)
BTW - how do you spawn these purple undergrounds in Sandbox? I assume it's unlimited consumption belt? I haven't found a console command for it.

As for ore > smelters , you can reference probably topic where buffer chests unload faster than a train arrives https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=194&t=58728 and this is just great thing I believe. I also think on applying of this approach on Copper Ore smeltery. But for Iron Ore smelt...

How do I know that I have enough Roboports now?

Hi there! So, example: I have bots unloading trains with ore / loading trains with plates for my remote smelter like this: 2021-05-02 14_08_43-Factorio 1.1.32.png And It takes about 1500-2500 robots depending on maximum travel distance. I realize how do I know if I have enough Robots. But what about...
