Re: Issues understanding combinators output

It outputs for two ticks because the input conditions are set to that for two ticks - the output is just delayed by one tick compared to the input. Check your screenshots: in tick 0 and tick 1, X and M are -4, and in tick 1 and tick 2, P is 1. If your goal is to have it produce P=1 for one tick then...

Re: Krastorio 2 - Remove wood from item requirements?

Yeah, the license/copyright info has to be preserved because that's what enables the license to be meaningfully applied (someone is declaring they hold the copyright for the work, and that as the copyright holder they grant these license terms) - so while it looks functionally like "giving credit" t...

Re: Battle is frustrating

Flame turrets are really good for defending your walls from attacks (since they do AOE damage), but they're not really useful for attacking, no.

Re: Biters pathing logic

You don't have to reduce flow for there to be a benefit, but you're right that the designs posted here won't really help. If you can convince the biters to take a longer path, even if that path has no bottlenecks and the overall flow rate remains the same, you can keep them inside turret ranges for ...

Re: railway scheduling confusion

What I typically do is name all the supply stations the same thing and then put it into the schedule several times, so the train goes to: - depot - resupply - resupply - resupply or similar. This enables it to go to more than one station in a trip without it going to every single one of them. There'...

Re: Drill pollution

Productivity massively increases pollution. Pollution is based on time * power consumed * pollution factor. Productivity modules slow the machine, increase power consumed, and increase the pollution factor. The only time they reduce pollution is when you're "post-game" using beacons, because if you...

Re: Kirk Calculator only has 3 slots for assembler prod modules? Why?

Unless you've reached the cap of one item per tick in an assembler (it can't go faster than this) then you should, in fact, need all four prod3 modules to get the quoted flow rate, and even if you are able to apply enough speed to an assembler that it *does* hit one item per tick (not sure this is p...

Re: Kirk Calculator only has 3 slots for assembler prod modules? Why?

There are four slots - the one separated from the others to the left is also one of the slots for the machine. The reason it's separated like that is so that you can select one module in the leftmost slot and then hit the arrow button in between to set the other three slots to the same module.

Re: Wiring Provider station to supply both 4 and 8 wagon trains

The LTN side is simple enough: Set threshold to the size of an 8-wagon train. Set train size limit to <= 8. Done. LTN will decide which trains to use based on the train size limits of the requester and the amount of cargo to be transported. If you set the threshold to that of an 8-wagon train and h...

Re: Wiring Provider station to supply both 4 and 8 wagon trains

Just setting the provider threshold to 8 wagons is fairly simple, but has two problems that I can see: - the downside you mention: if supply is >=4 wagons but <8 wagons then no 4-wagon deliveries will be dispatched. I don't think this is necessarily a big deal though: if you used a 4 wagon threshold...

Re: Stack inserter bug, flawed design or is the current behavior the best possible?

I'm reasonably certain that the stack insert only accepts one filter slot, and uses the signal for that filter for the stack size? No, unfortunately you have to choose a specific signal for the stack size manually, which means that if you're dealing with multiple items you need combinator logic to ...

Re: Network ID Problem

Why do you want to do this, though? If your stations only handle a single type of item then there's no need for them to be in different networks - LTN would never schedule a delivery from an iron provider to a coal requester, or similar, anyway. You only need separate networks if there's more than o...

Re: Detecting/avoiding brownouts caused by accumulator discharge rate limit?

Heh. Yeah, probably. But: accumulators on full discharge will deplete in 5000/300=16⅔ seconds, which happens to be exactly 1000 ticks. So if you ever see the accumulator charge dropping 1% per ten ticks, you're at max capacity, and you can get as cute as you want with watching the tick count betwee...

TBH I didn't even know this was a problem before I started reading the thread. I thought that if an accumulator used to measure power drops below X% the factories are still being powered at 100%... until the accumulator charge drops to 0% at which point brownouts begun.

Try this. You should be able to choose the power level you want. Thanks, but that's functionally equivalent to the simple SR circuit I already use to control my backup power, which is also based on monitoring an accumulator's charge level. The situation that's a problem is when the accumulators are...
