Blueprint Editor / Factory Designer

Hey guys, what always frustrates me like crazy is building that component part of the factory and nearly when done building it I find out I needed to place it just 2 tiles further away. This occasionally leads me to "god mode" where I can build/design stuff faster, make a blueprint and bring it in t...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Can make the bots dependant to wind. If there's a strong wind opposite the direction they're flying, they should go much slower. This effectively would make them untrustworthy replacement of belts. Another thing would be, to limit the logistic bots per roboport control (red) area. If the roboport wo...

An alternative way of balancing bots vs belts

An alternative to making belts equally powerful. Imagine the trains have wagons carrying containers (much like real-life trains). A nice new building (crane) can unload and load containers to wagons. Containers must be manufactured (similar to barrels) except 1 wagon with 1 container can carry the n...

Re: [15.37] Boiler Output/Belt Throughput Shortages

I have a similar but a bit more nightmare case. My boilers nuclear (but also with coal boilers earlier) seem to not be producing. They have wrong indicators, wrong numbers and if you check the Electricity network capacity - it should be at almost 1GW but looks like it's on 0.5GW (due to boilers issu...

Train Station Signal for docked train

Problem I want to be able to have different sized trains to reach my station and get refuelled. Thing is, sometimes it's 2 engines 2 wagons, 2 engines 1 wagon, 4 engines 2 wagons, etc. It all depends on where they're coming from. Present Currently the only way to automatically refuel them is by send...

Re: TheWall [image heavy]

Replace the teeth with single pieces of yellow belt pushing things outwards. and make sure all are within laser range The critters get confused on belts (and do not attack them unless really stuck for some time). This delays even the biggest hords long enough to get killed even by a single line of l...

Chain signal not updated after changes

I have a chain signal which operates fine. After I start modifying the tracks sometimes it goes red. If I remove the tracks that made it red signal remains red although it should go back to green. If I remove the chain signal and add it again at the same spot under same conditions it now is green (a...

Re: Travel over Water: Boats, Ships, Canus / Bridges / Tunnels

This would allow for the creation of awesome continents based maps. Each continent could have some unique variation of a resource example sugar plants to produce power from (with extra processing) instead of coal. This could allow the addition of archipelagos areas to mine rare resources off little ...

Re: Version 0.15.2

Is this experimental release? On Steam it's still on 0.14 version. 0.15.2 exists only in Beta. Is this correct or my steam is getting it wrong?

Re: Friday Facts #185 - Progress report

Just wanted to mention in your screenshot in the latest post it looks like the shadow of the big pole is wrong. Has wrong angle and should be bigger compared to small poles.

Looking forward to the update!
