Re: [0.18.32] "Train ghosts must be built on rails" when it should work

I also have the same issue. It feels to me, that the success depends on how close do you click to the center line of the track. If the cursor is somewhat further away, the green train snaps, and it supposed to build, but it is not, I'm getting the error message. But if I try to move the cursor close...

What about the hand? Is that still a special inventory entry?

What do you mean by replacing? Ignoring the content of the chest?

Re: Generic sushi belt manager

You could improve this by computing "number of items that fit below the readers / number of item types in chest - 1" and adding an item if there are less than that under the reader. The density of items on the belt would auto adjust to the number of item types in the chest. True, but then...

Re: Generic sushi belt manager

This is a short video showing how it works. You can see as I add two new item in the chest which were not present on the belt before. And the filter inserter also refills the items which the burner inserter removes at the left side.

Re: Generic sushi belt manager

So if I understand it right, the two combinators on the right read what is on the belt and send it to the inserter as negative and the one on the left reads contents of the chest and sends it to the inserter too. So I suppose the inserter is set to work if the signal =/= 0, right? Sorry, I forgot t...

Re: Inverting circuit signal

Wires carry a vector of signals with their values. Zero signals are dropped from the vector to save memory and processing. When comparing specific items a missing signal is equal to 0. Not so for the 3 specials: Everything, Anything and Each. Those only consider the signals actually present. Note t...

Re: Inverting circuit signal

You're assuming that a signal of 0 has a value of 0, that is not technically the case. Sure, you can add a condition for [signal] = 0, but actually the value is null. Basically those options only work for signals with a value, and nobody wants this to work any other way. You would need to set up a ...

Re: Inverting circuit signal

Yes, that is what I was expecting too. But it seems the theory do not match the practice here: https://i.imgur.com/PtP1u3A.png The constant combinator has 100 conveyor belts, that is the input for the decider comb as you can see. But there is no output at all, I would expect the output to be 1 for e...

Generic sushi belt manager

This build manages a sushi belt by adding missing items from a chest. The good thing is that the list of items it manages is not fixed, it will work with whatever is in the chest. So if you need like batteries in the belt, just put a few stacks into the chest, and it will put them on the belt with g...

Inverting circuit signal

Hi all, I'm wondering if it is possible to invert ALL entries of a circuit signal. So for example if the circuit signal contains iron, I want a signal which contains everything but iron. My plan was to use a decider combinator where the condition would be *(each) = 0, and the output would be 1 to *(...

Re: [16.0] Sprite cropping of "hr-artillery-wagon-base-10.png" failed REOPENED

Is there a way to turn off high res sprites before I start the game? I got this error message on a 12GB system with 16.1, even if I exit all other applications.

Re: Friday Facts #219 - Cliffs

I don't know how to feel about that. It just doesn't feel right. This is just like landfill. Very useful in certain situations but given enough resources it makes the whole map flat and void of features. Good for a sandbox where you copy-paste blueprints but it takes away from the challenge. I'd ra...

Re: [0.15.16] Conveyor belt won't move some items

I understand. This is not a serious issue, so I guess it is not important to fix. I can imagine it is hard to do anything with it without repro steps. I will keep thinking what special I did, and I will post any additional info (if I can find).
