Re: your thoughts on menu simulation

Note: The spidertron is not an spoiler, you can see it in the tech tree just begin a new game. no it is backward, instead of seeing actual thing then research icon, i'd rather see research icon then actual thing. a new player will not actively search for spidertron, suddenly found it in the researc...

Re: Questions about pollution and the F7 key?..

the green circle indicates the biter might expand their nest into that chunck.

redder circle = less likely, greener circle = more likely

biters try to avoid expanding near other nest nor near players factory. so it isnt related to pollution.

Re: your thoughts on menu simulation

I can understand the ones about fighting bitters being short since most combat in this game is short in general. actually i like the idea that a scene of 5 minutes at the factory border, and the combat (defend) only happen 30 sec in the middle of it, the rest are just factory operating. or a scene ...

Or a teaser. Makes one more excited to get there. You can always browse the tech tree at any time even as a day 1 player and see the spidertron research. but it is backward, instead of seeing actual thing then research icon, i'd rather see research icon then actual thing. plus a new player will not...

I just love em!

Just find it weird that I can hear them when in new game map preview, where I cannot see a single bit of the simulations.
yes agreed, i should add one more point, mute sounds.

your thoughts on menu simulation

my thoughts: 1. too bombastic its a glorified wallpaper, and should be quiet and not be distracting. what's on screen should be slow. i like scene with assembly line, belts, bots, trains arriving and leaving base, but not combats (a little is ok) and spidertron moving around. showing nests and biter...

Re: Challenge: maximize research density

Hi. Why is there no military research? 1. biter's evolution has a hard cap, finite upgrade is sufficient. 2. mining bonus almost always a better choice, as it delays depletion and the hassle to replace it with a new mining site. 3. bot speed significantly reduce the number of bots needed. i recomme...

Re: [MOD 0.18] KRASTORIO^2

when i put 2 transceiver, the game crash. cant i put 2? (one is activated, plopping the second one crash the game) Untitled.png Already fixed in the 0.9.21 (that will be released soon) probably should write somewhere that u cant put 2 of those. time and resources wasted (which is 0% of total :lol: )

Re: Factorio Paper Cuts

craft speed of assemble is .5, .75, 1.25
no assemble crafting speed is 1, which is annoying when doing mental calculation.
i would rather changing 1.25 to 1

Re: [MOD 0.18] KRASTORIO^2

what is the ratio of solar and accu?

my calculation is 10 solar: 7 accu

but i assumed the mod doesn't change the day/night cycle, can anyone confirm this?

Re: Challenge: maximize research density

after a week of melting my brain, i finally come out with higher research density. i thank quyxkh for his suggestion for 4-tile wide lane, and speed module on furnace. (i lost one week of my free time over this :cry: ) this factory has 462 spm and area = 162 * 132 = 21384 m^2 so the research density...

Re: Science as a tabsheet

i agree. and i like to add 2 more points:
1. fix their position. now they are jumping up and down due to fluctuation of production.
2. fix their graph color to be same as ... their color. (try read these words: Red Green Blue Yellow Purple White)

Re: Challenge: maximize research density

still it doesnt tile nicely horizontally, might need to tinker about how to fit the puzzle pieces.

my next goal is to build 462 spm (from 5:6:12:7:7) with these tips in mind. but it might take weeks to design one. (or maybe i wont, because its kinda insane)

Re: Challenge: maximize research density

Okay, I'm not going to ... an improvement is "4.5-wide lane" , which means rows with substation uses 5 tiles, and without that uses 4 tiles. not sure if your calculation m²/crafter is correct, we should exclude one row of beacon, consider infinite tiling, crafter:beacon = 1:1 in term of lanes. so c...

Re: Challenge: maximize research density

As the TV chefs say, here is one I made earlier . 200 spm (including military) in 148x156 for a density of 0.52 sci/h/m2. (I'm still tinkering with the expanded version which will be 1200spm in significantly less than 6 times the space.) The base can be further shrink down using blue belts. But may...

Rules: turn it into 6 type of science packs (excluding military), and consumed by labs. before i attempt this, can we clarify the wording so that it has to be a reasonable consumption?

Re: Challenge: maximize research density

So i manage to double sph, uses less than twice the area, result in higher research density. Science rate = 264 spm = 15840 sph Area = 162 m x 91 m = 14742 m^2 Research density = 1.074 sph/m^2 (and it even includes military at the unused corner) 4.4.png stats.png We can plop 4 of these and reach 1 r...
