Re: Digital Display, Yay!

So can someone explain how to use constant and decider combinators to create an alphabet? Edit for specificity: I understand that you have 1 constant combi for 0-9 and that it holds the signals you need to send to turn on each light. What I don't understand is how to use it as a lookup library for m...

Re: Factories arnt built over night, mode?

Can't afford to stand around. Need to get more resources ready because you're going to use a boatload of them on everything. Yeah, you'll breeze through red research like normal, but as soon as you hit those green packs you will be constantly expanding just to get enough iron and copper for everythi...

Re: Planning mode?

So you want to plan with technology you haven't even discovered yet? Interesting. Does that seem strange? Is that your point? I'm not sure why. For instance, you set up labs pretty early in the game, but don't start feeding blue and alien research until far along. but if you don't leave space or pl...

Re: Long distance transport

People forget one of the most important resources is *time*. I think most important is fun. So if you like trains, you have no problem spend time to play with them. And if you don't like trains just don't use them, but there is no reason to discourage others from using them. But if everyone doesn't...

Re: Planning mode?

Given that you can immediately and for no penalty pick up anything you have built, I don't see a purpose for designing before building. It would be useful if you need to plan out a design that includes things you don't have unlocked yet in your tech tree -- those are things that you can't just plop...

Once the mining resource is used up, the belt can be repurposed for the next resource you find in that direction.

Re: [solved] HELP! No petroleum coming out?!

Something's still not right. You need to do something with all the heavy and light oil. Storage thing, whatever. But you can't MIX them. And you should have a petroleum-gas-only line running to your chemical plant. So it will pump PG into the chemical plant, meanwhile it will pump light oil into sto...

Re: How can I control production amounts better?

You want to keep stuff off the belts. The best way to do that is smart inserters and chests. Wire the smart inserters that pull the packs out to some smart chests at the end that act as feeders. So the red pack inserter is wired to the chests and looks for at least 3 green RPs, or it doesn't pull an...

Re: Can I remove rocks and other obstructions?

Rocks: yeah, they have a health status, so just shoot them :) Basic gun will take forever though, SMG hurries that up quite a bit, proper shotgun with upgrades vaporizes them. Lakes: Nothing in base game, but there's a mod called Landfill that will allow you do dump a load of stone into it. Nothing...

The biggest problem I see is the possibility of continuing to start new games with different people instead of getting to play one game out with someone.

Re: Mistakes with the steam turbines/boilers

What's the ambient water temperature on this foreign planet?

Does the pump have a filter in it?

Does the pump supply enough water to pressurize the pipes? How much water pressure can it provide?

Do you even know? How can you? :P
