Re: [MOD 1.1] Sea Block Pack 0.5.11

I'm wondering whether the FNEI issue is because of confusion between the "Sea Block" mod, and the "Sea Block Pack" mod.

I think the first contains the Sea Block changes, and depends the required mods, whilst the second also pulls in other recommended mods, like FNEI.

Re: Version 1.1.73

Well, this is rather unfortunate news. The unloader pictured below was really nice to have, even if it didn't work in all directions. I always clocked that unloader when I wanted maximum throughput; with clocked box-to-belt inserters it can still do three full belts. As a bonus, it'll do a much bet...

Re: How to transfer lab. to lab.a science package (with full efficiency)?

I look at that setup and I think that the stack inserters transferring between labs are likely to empty the source lab of science packs on a regular basis. Think about it this way. When the top lab is getting low on red science flasks, the stack inserter will grab a handful of red science flasks fro...

Re: Constant freezing and stuttering

HI

I'm going to suggest you try turning your graphics settings down a bit. From the screenshot, it looks like it is stuttering somewhere during rendering.

You might also want to close other programs, as you only have 8GB ram, and most of that is already in use before Factorio even start loading.

Re: How common is it to deconstruct EVERYTHING and start over late-mid game?

I'm pretty sure that two way tracks need chain signals. Hi Zavian, They dont ;) I m using 80 trains at the moment without any problems without chain signals. 80 trains on two way tracks? And not just on separate isolated tracks for one train each? If so I'd like to see the map. Or are you using the...

Re: How common is it to deconstruct EVERYTHING and start over late-mid game?

You can't have any normal signal on any two-way track. That will always deadlock eventually. You can only use chain signals there. I have to disagree slightly. There are other possible ways to prevent deadlock, eg by using the circuit network to control train departures and/or marshal trains before...

Leave 1 railway width space between these 2 tracks, ..... Oh and btw, I see you use the blue signals. I am almost only using the first signal, except at some parts in my station. Personally I recommend two railway width spaces (4 tiles) between the tracks. Regarding chain signals, there are places ...

Re: How common is it to deconstruct EVERYTHING and start over late-mid game?

I think it is pretty common for new players to be unhappy with how they laid out their first bases or two. That is just part of learning the game. Even experienced players wanting to build a large base often build a starter base, use that to do most of the research, then build their large base. Pers...

Re: Question about fluid behaviour in this build

Personally I would first remove the pumps that mmmPI circled above. I suspect the are pushing too much steam to the left, and stopping the boilers to the bottom left from being able to output their steam production. If that doesn't fix it, then double check that all your boilers are running, and the...

Re: [1.1.64] Crashes on large map

Echoing what Loewchen said. If you are getting bluescreens then that points to a system stability issue. Factorio is very memory intensive and tends to find system stability issues that otherwise remain unnoticed. So try turning off any overclocks, including XMP (which technically is memory overcloc...

Re: Should "Wire Shortcuts" be in the Base game ?

Don't take it personally if your suggestion doesn't get implemented. Also don't assume that just because the devs haven't implemented a suggestion, that they haven't listened. Not every suggestion will get implemented. Some will be contradictory. Some won't fit the devs idea of the direction the gam...

Re: Unfair train scheduling

(Continuing from my comments on youtube. But restating everything here for clarity for people reading this thread). Your example setup is fairly artificial because it guarantees that only one train can be in transit at any time. You are also severely short on available empty stations that trains can...

Re: Strange performance issues after recent updates

Also only 4GB RAM? Which means Factorio, your factory, all the currently in use graphics,Windows and any other running programs need to fit into whatever RAM is available.

Re: please do not use floating point value in Factorio

Whilst a pressure issue is one possibility, the other common cause of very low fluid levels in pipes is demand outstripping supply.

If the output fluid boxes in the supply machines are empty, then that sounds like a case of demand exceeds supply.
