Re: Difficulty curve and how to keep players till end game

You can easily handcraft EVERYTHING involved in oil setups which are powerful enough to supply rockets. It gets more convenient if you automate pipes and underground pipes but that is trivial to do even with grey assemblers. I don't get the ruckus about oil. Yeah I still remember it was a tougher t...

Re: liquid filtering for pumps, tanks and wagons

Note that barrels are a natural fit with the logistic network, because they are exceptionally efficient to be carried by bots: a single barrel holds the equivalent of roughly 25 ore so a bot with a cargo size of 4 is carrying the equivalent of 100 ore - two whole stacks of ore! How do you determine...

Re: Train Stop Circuit Network Issues

1. It's not a bug. It's there for convenience since adding the fuel adds all kinds of problems to most useful setups. 2. I will probably add a way to detect if the train is there as a separate option in the station. Mainly because of setups and problems like this https://forums.factorio.com/viewtop...

Re: Difficulty curve and how to keep players till end game

I don't like oil. Up until that point the complexity of the factory increases somewhat linearly, but at oil I have to build a LOT of stuff to get anything of value, and then because it's a large operation with lots of buildings it can be tricky to nicely integrate the products into the rest of the ...

And the other reason why I want to add this limitation feature is Factorio's logic : nothing is supposed to be free :D
Water is already free in vanilla, and doesn't even require fuel or power. Have the devs said that nothing is supposed to be free in Factorio?

Re: liquid filtering for pumps, tanks and wagons

How do you keep all your trains and chests from eventually filling up with empty barrels? Do you just remove your barrel assembler after a certain point?

Re: Optimize Drone Movement

What is the correct way to use construction bots in a base which expands infinitely in one direction? As the base expands, the provider chests containing construction materials get farther and farther from where they're needed. If requester chests for the materials are set up at the frontier, they h...

Re: Techniques for branching a line off the main bus

I never use more than one belt for any resource. When the belt gets low, I just add another input.

Re: Fit integer number of items in transport belt

how do you change the distance between items on a belt? I can't find anything in the prototypes files.
