Re: Friday Facts #310 - Glowing Heat pipes

That is so cool, yet touches so many 'thats wrong' buttons inside my head. Lol.

Also it would seem the diagonal pole rotations are backwards.

Re: nuclear fuel for trains added in .16?

Now we definitely need fuel bonuses for burner inserters. Imagine the power of a nuclear-inserter!

Burner inserter fuel bonus

TL;DR Have burner inserters work faster with more advanced fuel types What? Currently burner inserters can only pull stuff from non-yellow belts if they are backed up. It would be interesting if, provided they be fueled with solid fuel or rocket fuel, they would speed up enough to be able to pick u...

Re: Looking for belt UNbalancer

You could use splitters to 'force feed' a selected line.

With three lines in parallel (and not adjacent), have a splitter in the top and bottom lines, with the second exit turning towards the middle lane and feeding into it.

Re: Tired of babysitting expansions? Auto-supply w/ trains!

I've set up a refueling stop right before the exit of my main base, where trains stop for ~5 seconds and get loaded up with solid fuel. I've repurposed this stop to add wall, gate, laser turret (still unfinished), repair pack and construction robot loading arms; this way all of my trains get loaded ...

Re: Tired of babysitting expansions? Auto-supply w/ trains!

Yeah, I've seen that. But there's no way I'm setting that up on every outpost.

I guess I'll dump the repair kits onto a chest then. I have the train unload (robots and repair kits) directly into the roboport, and this way it fills it up, despite the filter on the smart inserter.

Re: Tired of babysitting expansions? Auto-supply w/ trains!

Wow, amazing. I just started doing this, only I'm also trying to supply construction robots, since they killed every now and then. My problem is that I can't seem to limit the amount of bots that get stored inside the roboport (or repair packs either, but those are cheap to produce), even with smart...

Re: Even distribution of potions into labs using splitters

I guess it highly depends on your play stile, but I usually burn through all the red/green only techs long before I have an established blue pack production, large enough to saturate the 8-10 labs I usually plop down...
