Re: Can I control multiple stations with one combinator?

Right now, I have every LTN station in my factory connected to a central Constant Combinator which sets the request/provide thresholds so I can change them later from one central point when I upgrade cargo/liquid wagon capacities, and if I didn't isolate every station with a diode, it would put a w...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

when I read that post the thought that came into my head was that they don't really care at all about really fixing the problem Look at the bigger picture: 2) You solely focus on oil changes, and by doing so, lose the big picture. The reason I consider the oil changes a good move even if not perfec...

I am sure that is not what you meant to say. It appears to imply that the goal of the change was to lure players later in the game before giving up.

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Can any of us really remember what we felt about oil setup the very first time. Can we then understand how we had reacted if the new system had been the first oil setup we did? I. doubt. that. This is why I'm in the "don't care" camp. My first oil set up was 3 years and 1700 hours ago. I don't reme...

Do beacons work with electric boilers? Can't say I've ever tried it. There's no built in module slots unfortunately.

Re: Development and Discussion

Yes, chunks - again, I wonder about the quantities... since they are often barely enough for infinite ore sulfuric acid needs ? (There's also fish breeding, but IIRC that needs a LOT of energy ?) You can make sulfur out of water using air filtration. Just takes a bit of fuel for the limestone furna...

Re: Change in chemical science pack in 17.60

I don't disagree. You'd want to set up a priority storage for purified water and waste water, with an overflow to a clarifier. 1. Make purified water and void the saline water, pump purified into a Storage tank with a limiter to keep it topped off, but enough space for the waste water treatment to f...

Re: Change in chemical science pack in 17.60

Yeah, that's net positive, but not a lot of excess, and becomes a net drain with ceramic filtering. Clean coal is usually where I get most of it: Crushed Coal + purified water = coke + sulfuric waste water Worst case you can burn the coke in electric boilers and get a bit of energy efficiency over s...

How are you making your sulfur? It's been my experience that it's hard to get rid of even before chemical science.

Surely you see that these two statements are contradictory, right? You need massive piles of rocket fuel in a megabase, and the only way to get that now is AOP.
Coal liquefaction will probably be preferred.

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Agreed. The oil system has been working just fine for the past, what, 3+, 4+ years? Why the sudden push to change what people were (mostly) happy with? Are they, though? The forums here aren't a representative sample of the overall playerbase. If you're here, you probably already know how oil worke...

Re: Inventory Sort

+1 Yes.

Only workaround I've found is to built a bunch of temp warehouses, ctrl-click different items and sort them in my player inventory -> temp warehouse, and then fill the original back up in a semi-ordered way, and pick up the temp storage.
