Re: Capsule Action

I can set this up but it's always going to require you associate applying a capsule action to a character, god controller, biter, or turret. Would that still be useful to you? Not gonna lie, complete for got about this whole project until today. No, it's no longer useful. My goal was to be able to ...

Capsule Action

In reference to https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=55652 . I'm thinking this could work similar to how surface::create_entity works. It would work as if the player clicked on the location with the appropriate capsule. Required parameters would be position and type. Going off what's...

Re: Capsule Action

An additional thing I've tried:
I tried making a projectile that would then do the action, but regardless of where I put it, it would not accept "capsule-action" or "artillery-remote" anywhere within it's action tree.

Capsule Action

Is there a way to perform a capsule action within a script? What I'm trying to do is to create a artillery remote the creates multiple targets at once in a pattern. I've tried to use create entity to spawn the artillery-flare, but that just results in the particle being created. As far as I've been ...

Artillery Auto-fire Toggle

The idea would be to have a toggle option (on by default) in the inventory gui for allowing an artillery gun to fire automatically. When on (true), the guns would behave as they do now. When off (false), they will not fire at targets automatically, they will however still fire at manually designated...

Re: Game theory: Factorio takes place on Earth

Surely the planet could be an infinite sphere? Is there any difference between an infinite sphere and an infinite plane? On an infinite sphere, if you walked in a straight line for an infinite amount of time you would get back to where you started. On an infinite plane you would just keep going for...

Re: 0.15 Reactor Ratio

I got something really strange going on in my factory: I have six reactors in two rows making a 232 bonus or a max output of 800 MW which should mean that it should support 80 heat exchangers. I however have almost twice that 160 heat exchangers feeding off of those reactors and all my reactors are...

Re: 0.15 Reactor Ratio

Thanks for the tips guys. My reactor is still 2 MW away from max this way, but there seems to be no water issues. I have a 4 reactor system using the 8 exchanger rule for pipes and one pump per 8 exchangers. I also have 40 buffer tanks, 20 on each side (left and right) but I find that when I shut o...

Re: [0.15.3] Nuclear Reactor Setup Expandable?

You're 9 reactors have an effective value of 21, to run 20 heat exchangers you only need a effective value of 5. You could get that with on 3 rectors, two together(touching) and one separated. Your 20 heat exchangers can only fully sustain 34 turbines, a 35th would be partially powered. With your ar...

Re: 0.15 Reactor Ratio

A: Reactors are 40 MW, heat exchangers are 10 MW, turbines are 5.8 MW. The lowest common multiple I could find is 1160 MW meaning 29 reactors, 116 heat exchangers, and 200 turbines. Twice your big example. B: You could throttle back reactors by not providing fuel. They have to go from 15Β°C up to 50...

0.15 Reactor Ratio

First off, I've been up too long so someone should double check it. Second, I need to explain the neighbor system. The neighbor system is a way by which you can boost the effectiveness of a reactor by putting it next to another one. Note, they must be adjacent and fully aligned with one another. Ali...

Re: 0.15 Steam production with the boilers

this is out of the way and working as an emergency backup, so i'm not terribly worried about being able to get into it. 1 Pump feeding 12 (could be 20) boilers, each feeding 2 steam engines. 5 of these lines gives me 120 engiens for about 107MW of power. Was 6 lines but then I wanted the uranium ore...

If you decide to do this again, you might look at finding a way to make the bitters more aggressive in their attacks and expansion, might make it more challenging.
