Just look at third picture. No combinators. Works as you desire. Ideal for synchronized loading.

Re: Cars on belts

Of course this whole thing is kind of an intelectual exercise. Trains have so many benefits and are much easier to use. On the other hand I never understood the problem people are having with latency. Granted there are some 100k of resources in transit if you are using belts. Possibly for minutes a...

Re: Cars on belts

About two years ago, we have a base with guys Dooces and Leveler where we reach about 1000 lvl of science of mining productivoty. Pretty huge base where we tried to optimize CPU performance issues. Dooces (our Capo di Tutti Capi) tooks performace issues quite seriously, becouse in case of huge bases...

Re: Ideal clock

When i made this, i start with one rule - to make a synchronized clock with in-game time on one tick precision accuracy. No exceptions :roll: . I realize later that this achievement is not so easy if you hunt the last tick exactly, but the fact that it is possible just force me to finish it :D . Any...

Master furnace - all in one

Hello! I made a furnace which smelt all 4 types of ores, depends on what ore is available and what plates are not in stock. It is supported by bots (so there is no belt version) 0eNrNWVuSqzYQ3Ys+E5hCwg9MJVlD/lNTFDbtseryihCuOFNeQBaSjWUlaQFjbCwe4jKTzMfYYOmo6dN9uiXeyT4uIRc8lcR/J/yQpQXxf3snBX9Lw1jdk5cci...

Re: Ideal clock

In my solution, i need to have 30kW output exactly (in other word, half of one full solar panel power). I have a switch in there which set a one tick signal exactly where the accumulator hit 87 percent of energy. I do this for a reason becouse it perfectly fit to how much energy i lost from the mome...

Re: Ideal clock

Wow it still exists :). Thanks for positive feedback. It still works as i just tested.

Medal to one who realize why it works :D. I rembember only the idea but it was hardly optimized.

Its not. Your space efficiency (solar panel + accumulators space)/(all space) is equal to 80/81. You can reach 98/99 ;)

Late game Rocket Fuel production for huge bases

Hi. If you are looking for tileable module oriented Rocket Fuel productio, here is mine solution. Properties: 1.49 RF per second. Nearby balanced. Assemblers is used for about 99.78 %. No belts. Bots are used for rocket fuel outpur only (its possible to make an underground belt in there instead of p...

Re: Big Solar Farm 0.15

@GenBOOM He has coverge. You dont need full coverage with logistic network. Construction area is sufficient. You can connect roborts with cornes in "chessboard" style. You can reach about 98.4% efficiency. Note: Theoretical optimum is almost 99% (its eaxactly 98/99) where you use no robopo...

Re: Mixed smelting (4 products, fully beaconed)

Your setup is not optimal anyway. In case of steel, there is a possibility to get 2 or 4 steels only. In that case, there is no benefit from productiviy modules. You pay for the energy but the purple bar just diminish after switch to another smelting process. I highly recomend you to "open"...

Horizontal way is simple. You just need to rotate pattern between rows in vertical way. Roboports hint you how to do that.

Solar farm, roboport version, covered by construction area

Hi. Here is a version with roboport which uses maximum distance of roboports to connect them between themself for fully construction area coverage. No. of accumulators/solars = 334.5/398 = 0.840452 Space efficiency = (334.5Γ—4 + 398Γ—9)/(334.5Γ—4 + 398Γ—9 + 16Γ—4 + 1Γ—16) = 98,4% Maximum/Effective power =...

Re: Solar farm fit for huge bases

In my opinion placing by hand is huge PITA. I'm approaching ~2 GW by now (or is it 3? I don't know) and I would never have laid that out with personal roboport... Making a 1GW of this is really simple. I built my first 100MW with small roboport and 10 ridiculously slow robots in about 3 minutes (?)...

Solar farm fit for huge bases

Hi everyone! If you build a large factory (really huge), you probably hit one common problem - the performance (UPS). Solar panels are great way to make free energy with low performance drain. It is also fine to not use roboport or anything else - just the most dense pattern of solar panels and accu...

Hello. EC production on marathon is set well in my point of view. If you set everything just more expensive, it just motivate you to make everything much larger or spend more time to get proper amount of resources.
